A nice porter with a beatiful color, a not too persistent brown fosm and good taste: bread, hop, malt and a pleasant smoked hint. Smoke is found in smell also, as you would expect. The body is well balanced: it's just 5,4 but seems stronger. I enjoyed it while reading a book and it was an excellent meditation companion

Can into tulip.

Bought this out of curiosity and was prepared to dislike it. Actually pleasantly surprised. A medium bodied and flavoured porter; the smoke is extremely subtle, I for one can't detect it on the nose,just a faint ash note on the tail end of the palate.

Not bad at all

Beavertown – Smog Rocket
Smoked Porter – 5.4% - 330ml can - Best before 14.10.16

Appearance: Pours jet black as one would would expect f the style. Big tan coloured head that dissapated fairly quickly. Tiny, slow moving bubbles rising up sides of glass.

Aroma: Coffee, dark chocolate, roasted malts. Classic porter/stout aromas.

Taste: Lots of coffee flavours upfront followed by bitter roasted malt in the middle and finish. Lots of burnt, smokey flavour.

Mouth feel: Light - medium body, dry finish.

Overall: Good if your into this kind of thing I expect, porters and stouts are not really my thing though. So personally, I wouldn't buy this again.
