COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Single 11.2 oz bottle purchased from Hunger Mountain (Montpelier, VT) for $4. To the snifter it pours a richly purplish dark-brown with a trim not-exactly-tan-but-not-exactly-khaki-either head. Like so many in the style, Iím getting a surge of figs and dates, roast, candi sugar, caramel, English yeast, cocoa and hops to the side. Damn fine! Tastes as it smells, however thereís an intriguing earthiness by swallow which is tryingly hushed by leather, charcoal and brown sugar. Getting some ginger notes, too. It has this rather interesting warming sensation you find out by your first sip, so not accurately hidden at all. Goes from sweet, to earthy to grainy to...I donít even know what! Exciting beer nonetheless. Glad I had the opportunity to try out a Swiss porter without having to travel very far. But, I donít know, this almost too sweet to handle. Iíd say this was one of the more unbalanced porters Iíve had. Finishing it, though.

Servie en bouteille trop fraiche Noir avec nuance brune Nez avec une légère oxydation, cerise, confiture Bouche oxydation, cafe, fruit compoté Palais agréable amertume présente pour le style mais pas désagréable bien que quand même trop desequilibree, manque la base de malt a la fin. Dans l ensemble bien mais sans plus...
