Poppyland Brewery Smokehouse Porter (5.7%)

More sublime Brewing from Poppyland, Smokehouse Porter is warm and comforting, round and chewy and satisfying.
It pours an inky black and smells of treacle tart and a hint of liquorice, and taking a swig you find a big fat gloopy toffee and custard, coffee, roasted nuts and maple syrup malt body, and as you drink a woody fireside smokiness drifts in and builds, creating a lovely fug as the hops provide a brittle bracken and hedgerow leafiness, a splash of orange juice and a hint of Hubba Bubba, bringing a sweet shop fruitiness to the round chewy finish.
