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.

Pours black with a small fading head.
Nose shows soft smoke and nice complex roast.
Smoky and roasty flavours too but well-balanced with a dry finish.

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!

330ml bottle from Brewdog.com (£4.00):
This one was a really nice smoked porter, possibly the first of this type of beer that I've tried in a while. Definitely one that I enjoyed with the strong smoky flavours (naturally) & some good roasted malts but the beer still held a nice balance & went down more easily than expected; a great beer & one well worth trying if you can get a hold of one now.

Pitch black no head at all.

Smell is malty, smells very sweet.

The taste is sweet malts, smoked malts, a tiny bit of hop bitterness on the finish, but overall very sweet.

The mouthfeel is thick and sticky with low carbonation.

Overall a very good imperial stout, I would have have like the smoked flavour to be slightly stronger.
