Solid dark brown, almost black colour. Smells very malty, and heady of raisin and smoke. Strong flavours and medium-bodied; roasted malts, raisin, smoke, and slightly alcoholic. Lingering aftertaste.

Would I buy this beer again? Yes.

Oily black with fleeing sandstone froth. 3.75
Carob, treacle, tar, and phenols on the nose - dark and sticky. 3.75
Brownie and earth, malted milk balls, a flash of orange, and surprisingly bouncy red fruit end. 3.75
Cola end and sappy linger.
Just medium, oily, round. 4

-- Not sure why they’re calling this smoked when the hops are so big. Lager yeast, which could explain the light body - almost plays like a Baltic Porter. Chocolaty, drinkable, too thin for the strength, and just kinda confused. 3.75

A collaboration between BrewDog and Victory can't go wrong?

Dark brown/black beer with a two finger high head.

Nose: Licorice, dark chocolate, cream, roasted malt, smoak and wood.
Taste: Roasted malt, dried fruit, oak, liocorice and dark chocolate, coffee and coffee beans.
Body: Medium to full body. A light bitterness and medium carbonation.

A great smoked porter but I really expected more from this collaboration. Great anyway!

Really dark brown with a small dark beige head, quick to a really thin string of foam.
Rich sweet chocolate and smokey roasted malts in the smell, hinting to the Bamberger type of smokiness. Hints of vanilla, cream, very light dark fruit, even a bit of citrus, faint coffee bean. But that's being a fusspot; in short, it smells like smoked chocolate.
A mouthful of sweet dark malts (loads of caramel) and milky chocolate, neglecting the nose, at least in the start. A nice dark fruity zing, with some dark cherries, but still underneath the sweet malty blanket. Gets a bit roastier, with salted dark toast, with a smokey hint only in the finish. Faint coffee bean, some licorice, a faint wood note.
Sweetness passes through to the aftertaste, covering up the (slightly) smokier notes here too. Dark chocolate, light coffee. A dark lager zestiness throughout. Medium body and carbonation, a bit oily.
A tasty porter that lacks the smokey kick. It's good, but the kind of BrewDog that will not stick in my memory for too long.
