• 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.

330ml can poured into a tulip glass

Look: Very, very dark and opaque - absolutely nothing comes through when held up to the light. Plenty of bubbly, frothy tan head though, which took an absolute age to dissipate. Massive amounts of lacing as a result.

Smell: Despite being served at ambient temperature, the smell was best described as disappointing or, alternatively, barely there. Sure, there's a hint of smokiness but very little else even after a bit of time to 'breathe'.

Taste: Fares rather better here - dark roasted malts, dark chocolate, hints of peat and smoke with a side-order of earthy hoppiness. The aftertaste is a glorious combination of malt, hops and peat.

Feel: Pretty light for a porter, almost insipid if I was feeling particularly uncharitable (but I'm not) - even so, it would benefit from a bit more body. Surprisingly smooth, and the smokiness isn't done to death.

Overall: OK, but I was expecting something a bit more robust. Even so, if you like your beers smoky without being a full-on rauchbier-type thing then this is worth a look. Doubly so if you like stouts and porters even if it is a bit on the thin side. Worth a try, but really needs more body, more alcohol or, ideally, more of both. My ratings reflect the nature of the beer - it's a bit all over the place but not necessarily the worse for it.

Beige head, a large but short-lived.
Delicate aroma of chocolate and coffee grain. You may feel a slight smoke, but not from the smokehouse, it is rather smoke slaked, wet tree.
The taste is a little coffee, chocolate and smoke. Rocked Smog is acidic and has an intense bitterness.
