[8708-20160912] 330mL bottle. Roasted newspaper and shredded toasted peaty wood aroma. Black body with a long-lasting creamy brown head and a dotted lacing. Roasted woody paper and toasted peat moss flavour. Full body is a little rough. Good. (8/5-/7/3/15) 3.8

koshack (1835) - Gdañsk, POLAND - MAR 17, 2017
Aromat wyraźnie wędzony, lekko słodkawy. Później staje się wytrawniejszy. Bardzo przyjemnie pachnie. Pojawiają się śliwki. W smaku wytrawny, czekoladowy. Są nuty kakao. Alkohol lekko grzeje podniebienie. Bardzo fajnie pachnie. W smaku jest nuta śliwek wymieszanych z suchym kakao. Świetny porter, czuć w nim wpływy De Molena.

Smokey ash, coffee. Very dark brown colour with medium tan head. Soft carbonation with velvety texture. Very drinkable enjoyable beer.

Promising looks. Nice dark. First taste ashes, smoke and animal. Like smelling your clothes the morning after a night out. No body to compensate.

BRW (2860) - Barcelona, SPAIN - FEB 22, 2017
On tap. Black colour with beige head. Smoked and roasted aroma. Roasted, smoked, chocolate taste. Medium body.

BillKismet (4075) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 14, 2017
Well-carbonated carbon black body with a dark, foamy cocoa head. Dry black patent and wood sour nose with wild roasty tartness-quite lovely. Medium-bodied, ash in the back of the palate, while black licorice licks roll off the front of the tongue. Burnt cinders and ashy finish. While the aroma was promising, the body is overly burnt and smoky throughout.

33 cl Bottle - Very bitter finish, lots of dark chocolate and raisins. Smoky!

Turtles (2742) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 8, 2017
330ml bottle from Systembolaget. Black with a medium size, dense beige head, rich lacing. Peat aroma, sausages, dark chocolate and dark rye bread. Light to medium-bodied, creamy mouthfeel, medium carbonated. Smoky taste, peat, coffee, dark chocolate, woody dryness and ashes. Mid-dry and mild bitter finish.

I tasted the smoked porter version at the Brugs Bier Festival 2017 and had to try it twice it was so good. Smooth and with complex but balanced flavours. i could drink this all night, which is unusual for a porter, I believe. The best porter I have tried ever.
