Big Beery Advent Calendar - Beer 14: Five Points London Smoke Imperial Smoked Porter, 7.8% (London)

Each night, we'll post a blog about the day's hand-picked beer in our Big Beery Advent Calendar - why we love the brewery, why we've chosen the beer, why we think you'll love it too. Feel free to comment below or have your say on Twitter.

Five Points says: "Originally brewed for #Collabfest14 with Brewdog Shoreditch under the name Smoke & Mirrors, London Smoke is a semi-seasonal Imperial Porter brewed with smoked barley and wheat malts. This is a distinctive, lightly smoked beer with rich flavours of dark chocolate, tobacco and hints of campfire.."

We say: We wanted to include a smoked beer in our advent calendar line-up and London Smoke, from Hackney's Five Points Brewing, was the perfect choice. This is a silky, fruity porter with hints of coffee and liquorice as well as chocolate. It has a touch of the bonfire but it doesn't smoke you out. Fantastic with food - try it with cheese or a mint dessert (trust us on this one).
