|Querkus - 4.5%|
This beer was given to me by my sister. She also gave me the Garlic beer so her track record is pretty poor to say the least.
What I have is Querkus - Smoked Oaked Porter.
It's a surprisingly light coloured beer for a porter, more red then brown. It also has a smoky taste, as advertised by the name, that lingers on your palate and is delivered by its delicious smell.
There is a slight downside. The beer has a rather harsh sharpness to it that cut through the smoke rather than a richness. It's a little disappointing which may in some part be down to the smell being such a hard act to follow.
