Pours dark brown with a small head.
Nose shows smoked malt, campfire notes, sweet toasty malt and some nutty notes.
Very similar falvours; smoked, toasty and light roasted malt.
Needs more carbonation.
Enjoyable stuff, quite light for a porter...

Never tried these guys before but heard some good wraps so anyway it pours the darkest brown hue with a rather creamy one finger head that stays and leaves some subtle lacing,the smell is peat and I mean light peat with milky chocolate,smoked malts and herbal hops,the mouthfeel is creamy,medium bodied and slightly overcarbonated with tastes of some smokey dark malts,milk chocolate,ripe dark fruits and finished with a cherry chocolate bittersweetness and overall out of the ones I've tried this was the one I felt worth reviewing and definitely a hidden gem against their more well known line up worth a buy cheers.

On tap into a snifter in Sunny Melbourne.

Appearance: Blackish Brown pour. 1 Finger head dark that evaporated very quickly. There was a solid thick lacing up and down the glass that didn't want to go anywhere.

Aroma: A hint of smoke is the first thing you notice, but it doesn't overpower the sense like The Big Smoke. It's more subtle, still in the forefront, but the background chocolates and dark fruits are more noticeable and blend nicely. Smells good.

Taste: A big smoky to start, basically the aroma chasing into your mouth., but again not overpowering. Coffee then become readily apparent. Light chocolate, a bit of liquorice, dark sweet malt. Finish balanced, medium dry with a slight bitterness to off set the sweet.

Mouth Feel: Medium bodied, light carbonation, keep it light.

Overall: I am very happy to have gotten it on tap. Smooth body and taste makes it an easy drinking, yet complex smoked porter. I do love how the smoke is a compliment to the overall taste and not forcefully taking the reins.

Dark black color, a bit opaque with light no able to get through it. It poured a thin head that dissipates fairly quick. Strong and nice aroma of smoked, toasted and roasted malts with hints of caramel and ham.
Similarly taste is quite smoky, sweet malt with caramels and touches of ham, mingled with decent hops. Aftertaste is bitter and astringent.
Medium body and a bit oily. Reminded me of Schlenkerla but hoppier.
