A surprisingly approachable smoked porter, velvet smooth with a robust malt backbone. This is infused with Chipotles to give even more smokiness and a subtle hint of heat, a real winter warmer.

Lele (556) - Padova, ITALY - JAN 23, 2017
ASPETTO: nera impenetrabile, schiuma beige, abbastanza abbondante, fine e persistente. AROMA: soprattutto cacao e affumicato. GUSTO: apre con una forte liquirizia e cacao, per poi evolvere in un piacevolissimo tostato. Nel retrogusto emerge il piccante del chipotles. Corpo e carbonizzazione media. Birra veramente equilibrata, saporita, interessante e ben fatta!

MarcinG (780) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - SEP 22, 2016
Butelka 500ml z Oddbins Liverpool. Czarny kolor. Piana bezowa lekko palona-obfita szybko redukuje sie do zera. Karbonacja mala do sredniej. W aromacie ciemne palone slody "wedzonka" nuty czekoladowe. W smaku slodkawe poczatkowo pozniej uderza pieprzowa nuta z wedzonym akcentem. Dodatkowo czekolada slody i czarna porzeczka. Niezly lecz troche slaby.

Half Pint on keg at Cheltenham Real Ale Festival. Pours a dark brown without any head. Smoky and peppery aromas. Taste is strongly peppery immediately, can taste the booziness as well, hits the throat hard. Pepper and smoke dominate a bit.

ShivanDragon (3932) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - FEB 20, 2016
smoked porter, 5.7%, 33cl, schenkt zwart met fijne bruine kraag. aroma van mout, geroosterd, chocolade, lichte rook (helaas iets te koud geschonken en verkouden, wat beide niet meehelpt voor het aroma), smaken zijn zeer licht zuur, dun/waterig, licht rokerig mouten, iets scherps chili/pepers, zwakke body, lage maar mondvullende co2, koffie. de pepers kunnen mij wel bekoren, verder wat te dun en te beperkt.

olio (10064) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 12, 2016
33 cl bottle. BBE 02/2016.
Pours deep dark mahogany red color with a large frothy head. Smoke on the aroma, obviously, mild burnt malt notes, hops, some yeast and faint dark fruit notes. Flavor is malty, smoky, moderately caramel-y, subtle licorice notes and yeast, some dark berry notes on the background. Carbonation is rather strong, bitter palate with a dry finish. Decent.
