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

Bottled 2012, tasted side-by-side with BBA version, poured into teku

A- pours jet black in color with a small creamy dark tan head that reduces to a ring around the edge, a bit of lace left behind

S- lots of smoky peat moss aroma up front with notes of campfire & dried smoked pork and beef jerky. Cocoa and milk chocolate malt with some notes of toffee, caramel and fig

T- smoky notes continue into the taste with notes of peat, campfire, dark chocolate, caramel and dark fruits. The finish is dry with notes of sherry and almost vinous

M- medium body with low carbonation, slightly oxidized, leads to a slightly foamy mouthfeel and a foamy dry finish, alcohol is hidden well

O- this has aged quite well and has some good smoky notes. It makes me wonder how smoky it was originally. This was notably more smoky than the BBA version

Exile 1 pours black with a small tan lacing head. There is a roasted and slight chocolate aroma. The taste is dry, has a nice roasted flavor, and some chocolate notes; the chocolate is not overpowering. Good body nice flavors. Overall it s a nice full porter with some goo flavors.

Enjoyed in a snifter.

A - Very dark inky black colour with a thin layer of light brown head.

S - Sweet chocolate, molasses, roast and lighter spice and coffee aromas.

T - Sweet milk chocolate, molasses, roast and a light spiciness form the rye. Gets very sweet as I continue to drink it.

M - Medium, almost full body. Light carbonation.
