3.87/5  rDev +10.6%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

The colour is dark brown (80 EBC), the liquid clear. The two finger brown airy head sinks down to a thick lid leaving some lacing.

The smell got fat smoked sweetness and clean bitterness. Notes of delicatessen and some black malt-sourness. Hints of Eucalyptus and pine.

The taste got smoked malt, a mix of smoked sausages and campfire and clean passing bitterness. Roasted notes; dark rye bread and a touch of treacle. Medium to full body. The aftertaste is smooth with smoke, balancing bitterness, treacle and barbecue meat. The finish got some sweet smoke and a touch of salt.

The carbonation is very smooth with foaming bubbles; the liquid is smooth and semi-thick.

An elegant smoked porter.

As Black Isle Smoked Porter (2014 small batch)

A 330ml bottle from the 2014 small batch, bottle number 6488 of 8480 with a best before end date of October 2015. It was poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: It poured a dark brown with a thinnish cream tanned head that did not stick around too long.

Aroma: Aromas of roasted malts with a bit of chocolate, licorice and slight peat smoke.

Taste: Starts slightly sweet caramel and chocolate maybe even some toffee, but finish is definitely smoky, bitter and lingering ash.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with light carbonation.

Overall: I’ve had quite a few smoked beers before and although this was not at the top, it was still pretty good. I would buy this again.
