Smoke Them if you've got 'Em

Intrigued by the history of London Porter - particularly brown malt (a traditional wood smoked malt) being a significant part of the grain bill, and after tasting our efforts having brewed a great session Porter, we decided to up the smoke!

Inspired by an Alasakan Smoked Porter and in the American tradition of making everything big, we upped the smoke, and everything else...
