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, I’m 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 there’s 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 don’t 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 don’t know, this almost too sweet to handle. I’d say this was one of the more unbalanced porters I’ve had. Finishing it, though.

Pours mahogany with a good lasting tan head. Aroma of toffee and liquorice. The taste is treacle, toffee and liquorice. Quite bitter. Full mouth feel. Some sourness to it, especially in the finish.

MarkoNm (1037) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - DEC 23, 2014
Pours a very dark brown, almost black color with very low carbonation resulting in a very tiny beige colored head. Roasty malts, some chocolate notes and some shampoo smell also present. Taste starts sweet, slightly roasty with some coffee notes. Medium bitterness in the finish, and some more coffee notes in the aftertaste. The taste is not that bad, though nothing special.

loco_gallego (212) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 14, 2014
Brune très foncée, belle mousse marron. Anneau persistant et lacings. Au nez fortement sur le toasté-choco noir, fruits noirs. Un peu biscuit. Présence d’houblonnage américain. Le tout très balancé, sans agressivité. En bouche on est sur les mêmes élèments. Une légère sensation de fumage. Forte présence de toastage. Moins fruitée en bouche. Houblonnage présent en fin de bouche. Côté sucré-caramel peu présent mais bonne balance générale sucré-amertume. Corps un peu crémeux, faible carbonatation. Bien bien...

Soongalerie, Bern. Ab 3,3dl Flasche. Wohl dunkel ;) Wow, was für ein Röstgeruch, aromatisch. Leicht zu trinken, wenig CO2, recht malzig und doch gut Bitter. Gefährlich und gut.

dnicolaescu (1054) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - NOV 30, 2014
BOTTLE 33 CL from CH-303. Aroma of medium intensity, with some fruit, but mostly spicy phenolics. The flavour is also dry and spicy - no traditional chocolaty sweetness, with a moderate bitterness that blends well with the spice.
