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.

loco_gallego (139) - 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.

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.

chinchill (2128) - 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 (3543) - 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

250ml bottle served in a pint glass. A: Pours a deep black color forming a big and creamy beige head when (aggressively) poured. Good retention and tons of lingering lacings left in the glass S: Very roasted in the nose. Delicious notes of roasted malts, dark chocolate. Quite bready and biscuity, smells like liquid Oreo :p. 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. Good quality water. roasted bitterness aftertaste O: Great drinkability. Excellent quality beer. Swiss classic. A beer that I’m gonna drink again, for sure [ BA Review @ 6/29/2013 ]

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.

"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."
