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

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

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.

• Look – 4.25 – Default, drank out of the can.
• Smell – 4.25 – Default, can’t smell much except a smokey porter.
• Taste – 4.25 – Great taste. A nice porter with a small bit of smoke. Not over the top, just about right.
• Feel – 4.5 – Medium to full mouthfeel, very smooth.
• Overall – 4.25 – Really enjoyed, good coiffing dark beer, not too heavy on the smoke.

Tried this from a can straight from the fridge at home. I thought it improved as it got less cold. The aftertaste is long and toasted. The colour is great. The head disappears quickly.
