minutemat (4768) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, - AUG 3, 2014
330ml bottle from Beermoth. Pours black with beige head. Smoked sweaty gym shirt aroma, taste has a tempered smoke quality, some malty woodiness, smooth and drinkable with charred ash on the finish. For a new brewery this isnt bad at all.

Leighton (19497) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 29, 2016
Bottle shared at the Queens Gardens - massive thanks to Daniel! Pours red-brown with a foamy, tan head. Light toasted bread in the nose, some earth. Light sweet flavour with a little s ones malt, faint dry cocoa, ashy roast, dried fruits. Light bodied with average carbonation: somewhat dry in the finish, with some dried berries, dusty chocolate, further ashy roast, scorched earth. Pretty decent.

Scopey (13309) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 29, 2016
Bottle thanks to Dan. It pours darkest brown with a medium tan head. The aroma is rich, roasted maltage, very meaty, smoked action and bonfire. The taste is bitter - sweet, rich roasted malt, toasty, smoked malt notes, charred action, leather, varnish and resin with a dry, smoked finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Decent smoked porter.

gegwilson (3514) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 24, 2016
Keg at the Northern Craft Beers Festival at the Hawkshead Brewery. Mahogany with a cream head. Mild roasty aroma. The taste has fruity roast malts, toast and a light bitterness before the smoke comes in. Chewy. Nice.

Hamirubi (574) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - MAY 12, 2016
33cl bottle (22 IV 2016), shared with Dez, Bartlebier and friends: Thanks! A pure black tanned porter with a reddish gloom. Slick looking, slightly oily textured dark brew with lots of smoke and a very subtle bacon nose - very slight, though! Very decent, clean porter with bitterish and malt features. Although there are no real added specials to this beer.

Ricca e corposa Porter con un sottile e dolce aroma affumicato grazie al famoso malto affumicato di Bamberg, Germania. Il malto bilanciato da un piccante aroma di frutta scura e dai luppoli Bullion e Willamette. Runaway Brewing realizza birra moderne con la produzione in piccoli lotti nel suo birrificio al centro di Manchester. La birra non filtrata, cruda e condizionata in barili e bottiglie per mantenere il pi possibile il sapore. Ha davvero una facile beva.

Aroma: light toasted malts, a touch of savoury, smoked flavours, light caramel. Appearance: hazy black, small, frothy, beige head. Taste: light bitter. Palate: dark malts continue, light bitter, residual smoked flavours, toasted malts, some cacao, hint of chocolate. Overall: OK Smoked Porter, not very smoked though. Bottle at Hawksmoor, Manchester.
