[cask at Cloisters, Edinburgh] Pours a bronze colour, with a decent white head. Aroma has smoke in there, but it’s not overwhelming. Slightly smoky and woody. This continues on the taste, there’s a subtle level of smoke about it, which only really comes out on the distant aftertaste. Before then, a slightly sweet, malty palate with more of the woody notes. Nowhere near the Bamburg flavours I was fearing, and as such, surprisingly drinkable - very well put together  dantheman278 (1365) - SCOTLAND - SEP 24, 2011
Cask at cloisters. Reddish amber pour, thick creamy white head. Woody nose, hint of orange, very subtle smoked note. Palate is similar - orange, woody, smoked malt, bready malts. Super-smooth mouthfeel, hint of smoke on a long dry finish. Awesome stuff. cgarvieuk (25992) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 21, 2011

Cask, at Port Street Beer House, 14th September 2011. Gorgeous Ale and my first experience of a smoked beer, aroma is smokey, but not overpowering, mouth feel is oily and the taste is light smokey, makes you want to have more. Benjii (3050) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 10, 2011
On cask at Jocktoberfest at the Black Isle Brewery. Pours a reddish brown colour with a fair white head. Aroma is quite woody with caramel and smoked malt. Similar flavours and the smoke is not overpowering. A little oily mouth-feel and CO2 prickle. Very nice. Woody overall particularly in the long smoky linger.
