Kolor czarny z beżową pianką. Aromat niezbyt intensywny, ale czuć wędzonkę, kawę zbożową , karmel. W smaku również kawa zbożowa, karmel, paloność, suszone owoce, lekko kwaskowate, na końcu czuć wędzonke.

cattaneopapa (350) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 27, 2016
500ml bottle from the LCBO. 5.3% alc./vol. Pours and opaque deep brown colour with one finger of light brown head. Aromas of coffee, roasted malts, and a whiff of caramel. Taste matches the aroma with a well balanced smoked finish. Not as dry as your usual porter. Excellent smoked porter.

LazyPyro (740) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 2, 2016
500ml bottle. Dark brown almost black colour with a two-finger tan head. Aroma: roast, smokey malt, hint of chocolate. Taste: smokey roast malt, caramel, dark fruits, slight hint of chocolate perhaps. A little sweetness from the fruity, malty flavours with a bitter smokey finish and aftertaste. Medium body, low carbonation. Not a fan of smoked beers generally but this one wasn’t at all overpowering, nicely done.

Christian (13085) - Odense, DENMARK - AUG 21, 2016
Near black with a lasting off-white head. Roasted aroma with licorice and smoke and a touch of coffee beans. Sweetish roasted flavour with a light smoke. It’s never prominent enough to harm the beer with medicine/iodine character

jercraigs (10093) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 14, 2016
2016-08-14. Black body, nice brown head fades. 3++ Aroma has moderate smokey character over dark malt core, moderate roast, whispers of brown sugar and caramel. Flavour is similar, smokey overtones, relatively bitter throughout, roasty dark malt, muted sugary caramel accents. Average plus bodied palate, good carbonation. Cocoa notes come out in the finish and linger in the aftertaste with the smoke. Well made beer but even the moderate smoke detracts for my tastes. 7/4/7/3/14 Bottle from the LCBO, Toronto.
