LazyPyro (1602) - 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 (13823) - 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 (10886) - 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.

Eructoblaster (4391) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 12, 2016
Bottle - 500ml. Pours an opaque black body with an average, fading, beige creamy head. Good malty aroma with smokey and chocolate hints. Its well balanced malty/hoppy taste carries smokey and hickory notes. Ends with a robust smokey/woody finish. Enjoyable.

johndoughty (5543) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2016
Bottle. Dark brown. Slightly smoked malty flavour with some subtle bitterness. Medium body and quite thirst quenching. Well worth trying.

Flanfl (816) - Lyon, FRANCE - JUL 28, 2016

artemb (1188) - Chisinau, MOLDOVA - JUL 20, 2016
Look: black with red shades, opaque, beige head with average retention. Aroma: deicate smoked notes, roasted, prunes, chocolate, autumn leaves. Taste: dry, light bitterness, light berries tartness. Flavour: dark berries, dried prunes, roasted meat, charcoal, woody vanilla notes. Finish slightly ethery with some hoppy and minty notes. Very good with very delicate smoked notes. I believe that smoked beer should be more smoked, however this is a good, rich, balanced porter.

3.4
Boutip (6533) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 13, 2016
Bottle: Poured a black color porter with a nice light brown foamy head with good retention and some light lacing. Aroma of light roasted malt notes with some very subtle smoked flavours is OK. Taste is a mix of roasted malt notes with subtle smoked flavours and some light coffee notes. Body is light with good carbonation. Not bad but didn’t really stand out either.

3.8

(Thornbridge Beadeca’s Well) Cask, half pint at Thornbridge Den Bosch. Almost totally black colour on the body, a bit less than a finger of thick and creamy, light brown head with very good retention. Great aroma here, with light coffee, mocha, chocolate, light roasted malts. Taste follows with roasted malts, chocolate, light liquorice even, faint coffee. Medium body, low carbonation. Very good.

3.5
