Our Two Penny is brewed with traditional roasted British malts and American hops (Chinook, AMarillo, Willamette). A double boiling, together with a first wort hopping, give it a rough, scruffy character that perfectly suits our modern beer-loving dockworkers.

chinchill (2056) - South Carolina, USA - NOV 21, 2014
Poured from a 33 cl brown stubby bottle. Pours dark brown, looking black in the glass. Only a thin beige head arose despite a moderately vigorous pour, and it soon reduced to a bubbly ring. Aroma: Rich and very appealing. Features dark fruits and dark bread, with hints of toffee. Flavor: dark roasted malts; just a hint of smoke but essentially no burnt character. Less fruity than the aroma but still clear suggestions of black currants, raisins and dried plums. A touch of spicy hops in the aftertaste. Excellent sweet/bitter balance leans ever so slightly towards the sweet side. Mouthfeel: full bodied with a near creamy smooth feel and low carbonation. O: excellent, if centrist, version of the style.

Erzengel (3439) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - OCT 31, 2014
Many thanks to CH-303 for this bottle! The beer starts mild-sweetish, nice roasted malty, a bit sticky. Easy to drink but deep. Nice roasted, nearly burned malt, fresh bitter hops, very smooth. The aftertaste is intense-roasty, not too sweet, hints of nuts and burned caramel. Nicely bittered, a very great round brew! 14/13/14/14

Some notes of flowery hops and light notes of alcohol T: Great taste. Strong notes of roasted malts. Light notes of dark chocolate and brown bread, Slightly sweet upfront followed by a pleasant bitterness. Interesting hoppy bitterness in the and of the roasted bitterness M: Heavy creamy body. medium to low carbonation. Smooth texture.

Absolutbeerginer (26) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - SEP 22, 2014
Noire, brillante, à la mousse caramel, cette bière tessinoise insolente joue avec les styles. Ce porter à «deux penny» au caractère bien trempé titille les stouts par sa puissance alcoolique. Un alcool présent au nez dominé par des notes de cacao, café, réglisse et pruneaux secs. L’amertume et la légère acidité des malts torréfiés, évolue et persite en amertume agréable rappellant la présence de houblons américains.

slowrunner77 (6031) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 17, 2014
"11.2 stubby - pours almost like a nitro brew. Dark, silky smooth feel. If you said this was a milk stout, I’d believe you. Suggestions of barreling in the flavor. Chocolate and coffee and a little something extra. This one really pops."
