Drinking slightly out of date. It's lovely - sweet and smoky, with the spicy dark fruit aromas as promised. ThreeCats (1027) - ISRAEL - OCT 6, 2017
Deep brown with mahogany highlights and a huge, lasting mocha colored head. Aroma has a good deal of peat, smoke, espresso, roast, chocolate, and ash. Not your run of the mill, but interesting. Taste smoky, slightly meaty, roasty. An acquired taste for sure, but definitely lives up to its name. bateleur (212) - BETCHWORTH, Surrey, ENGLAND - SEP 14, 2017
330ml bottle from The Beer Shop Heaton Moor. Pours near black with medium beige head. Aroma burnt malt and smokey chocolate. Taste moderately sweet before bitter finish, smoke ever-present. Towey1989 (3650) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 30, 2017
Bottle at Beerdock Leek. Pours a deep brown colour with a medium tan head. Aroma of toasted malts, chocolate, smoke, some wood, slight dark fruits and subtle spice. Taste of roasted malts, chocolate, some smoke, slight wood, a little black pepper and subtle dark fruits. Medium bodied and moderate carbonation. A dry, lightly smoked, roasted bitterness in the finish. A solid porter, roared malts, chocolate and subtle dark fruits. Balanced amount of smoke and wood too. Enjoyed it. sarauckelman (550) - Durham, Durham, ENGLAND - MAY 20, 2017
Very dark with huge thick structural had that takes a long time to dissipate. Masks most of the aroma but some smoke comes through. Smoke flavor more prominent than aroma, but it’s mixed with something rather hoppy. The candied fruits only come through at the end, but the aftertaste is bitter.

2017 catch up - Bottle at home - A good porter, with a light, but clear flavour of smoked malt. Nice mouth feel and overall good. Too rich to have more than one though! daniele (10150) - ITALY - APR 26, 2017

December 2016 - Bottle picked up in Crosby, Merseyside and shared at LKS Towers. As ’Runaway Smoked Porter’, 6%. Black, almost opaque, slight red hue, foamy brown head leaves thick lacing. Aroma is quite light with some ash and burnt malt. Body is light, a bit frothy with tingly carbonation. Taste is quite floral, some ash and coffee, cigar, salty finish. Good. (3.4)
