look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

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

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.

Poured into english pint.
Absolutely black with 2-finger head, good retention. Smell is sweet and smoked and roasted tones (like chocolate, coffee). Taste is full, oily, of different types of malts, roastiness, smokiness, thickness, sweetness. Balance isn't bad, probably lack of smoke tones.

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.

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.
