look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Bottled version.
Poured pitch lack, very very faint brown hues in the light, light brown two finger fluffy head. Big retention.
I could smell smoke right after popping the cap, but sniffing the glass i get a bigger smokey-bacon-rauch aroma, sweet and salty, without any porter notes (maybe very faint chocolate, if you really try).
Taste sets things right: first things i get are roasted malts, dark chocolate, espresso, with burnt caramel and low juicy dark fruit (plums, figs, raisin). Juiciness fades away to earthy cocoa powder, ground coffee and faint roasted hazelnuts, with a remaining citrus zestiness (and peel) waaay in the back. Smoke comes in the finish, along with charcoal notes and some faint green hops. It's also predominant in the aftertaste.
Medium body and carbonation, like a common porter. Crisp and dry finish, not considering the smoke.
A very tasty porter, nicely enhanced with smoke. Big difference between smell and taste, but they're both great.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Served on cask in The Cask, Pimlico.

Pours a murky dark brown colour with an okay head.

Smells nice, with smoked malts dominating.

Again prominent smoked and burnt malts in the taste, thin mouthfeel and a subtle hop bitterness in the background.

Overall a solid stout, interesting use of smoked malts.

Serving type: cask
