Solid dark brown colour. Smells like earthy hops and smokey. Tastes sweet, with smoke, wood and toasted grains. Malty sweet finish.

Would I buy this beer again? Yes.

A 330ml bottle with no visible BB date. Acquired a while back from Trembling Madness in York. The 'etched' label art is pretty cool....

Poured into a Duvel tulip. Bottle conditioned. A very dark reddish-brown hue that appears pitch black in the glass. Produces a large head of creamy beige foam that lasts for a few minutes before subsiding to a patchy surface layer. Aroma of dark, smoky malt with hints of roasted grain, subtle burnt notes, woodsmoke, dried fruit, mild caramel, a twinge of molasses, faint liquorice and earthy yeast. A hint of kippers in the background. Rounded and satisfying.

Tastes of rich, smoky malt with a roasty character and a dry finish. Notes of dark roasted malt, burnt grain, smoke, molasses, mild dried fruit, subtle cocoa, a hint of liquorice, faint caramel, stewed leaves and earthy yeast. Highly attenuated, with a lingering yeasty quality and a restrained, malty bitterness upon swallowing. Mouthfeel is smooth, tingly and dry, with pleasant carbonation and a slightly insubstantial body. Pretty astringent, followed by an aftertaste of smoky, roasted malt, earthy yeast and faint stewed leaves.

Nice one - a dark, balanced brew with more than a whiff of smoke to it. Looks good, while the aroma and flavour are dominated by woodsmoke and roasted grain. Dry and yeasty with a well-judged bitterness. Body is alright but could be a shade thicker. Tasty; not quite on the level of a Schlenkerla but a quality effort. If smoke is your thing then this is worth a punt.

Smooth, very rich, gentle - lightly smoked but great depth. Like Dark Isle

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...

330ml bottle. Shaker glass. Bright brown color, tan head. Foam is creamy & shows good retention. Roasted malt & burnt chocolate aromas. Sweet peated malt, herbal & minty intense flavors displayed in a creamy upfront. Light body. Moderate carbonation. Oily to watery texture. Low & gentle bitterness, subtle smoky notes & hints of licorice candy in the middle linger into the finish. Herbs & dark chocolate on the aftertaste.

Can. Very dark brown. Thick tan head.
Chocolate, cocoa and a light peat aroma.
The smokiness comes through upon tasting. Charcoal bitterness at the finish.
Decent carbonation and relatively smooth. Nicely balanced.
I am not partial to smoked ale but this is decent.
