Martin the MildmanExcellent28 Jun 2012 Brown smoked porter with good malt character and a smooth well rounded mouthfeel. Gentle smokiness in the finish. My score 16/20 with B for quality as served too warm.

Stephen HarrisExceptional26 Jun 2012 I had a bottle-conditioned version of this porter. It is black, with a tight, tan head. Smoky aroma. There are sweet malts and liquorice, but the overriding flavour is a woody, winey, smokiness. If I was told it had been aged in a wooden barrel I would have believed it Ė but apparently it hasnít. This has the makings of a truly great beer.
