Classic English porter fermented with ale yeasts brewed with special smoked malt. Smoked porters are extremely popular among the US craft brewers but almost absent on European beer market. Smoked malt used in such a beer is usually smoked by beech or peat - we decided to use truly Russian wood - the birch. We have ordered a special version of smoking machine for malts specifically and used wood chips to create a very special handcrafted grains. We have created a distinctive beer as a result: deep black colour, rich foam, aroma of coffee and smoke and sweety-smoky taste. Bright bitterness in the finish emphasized the impression from this complex beer.
We invite you to meet with smoked porters!

Thank you tderoeck! Sampled draft @ VCBF 2017. Black with no head. Nose is thick smoked umami, gavy soy sauce with umami licorice sweetness. Taste is heavy soy sauce umami, gravy, sugar, very soy sauce, smoked soy sauce, molasses. Body is gravy & syrup. Too umami for me as was the case with their other black beers which I tried at the festival, this one was my favourite since the heavy umami smoke balances it a bit. Pretty decent.

On tap at VCBF17, Belgium. Nose is light smoke, chocolate. Body is pitch black, head is medium, beige, creamy, mostly diminishing, good lacing. Aroma is dark chocolate, old wood, cardboard. Light sweet, medium to heavy bitter. Finish is medium lasting roasty medium bitter, hint of smoke. Medium to full body, dry slightly sticky texture, soft carbonation. Quite easy dessert beer, simple but tasty, nice one.

Sampled at the VCBF 2017. It’s a very good Porter overall but the smoky notes are very subtle to non existent
