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.

Glouglouburp's rating

Glouglouburp (6104) - Montreal, Quebec, - OCT 3, 2012
In short: A typical roasted stout/porter of above average quality. Far from original, but very good
How: From a bottle at Mondial De La Bière 2012
The look: Black body topped by a medium tan head
In long: Nose is roasted, burnt waffles, some roasted coffee beans, roasted woof, a bit of smoke. Taste has more roasted coffee beans than the aroma, adds some black chocolate, burnt toasts, roasted wood, raisin bread, leafy hops. Medium body with appropriate medium carbonation. Roasted enough to feel dry but so roasted that it develops annoying off-flavors. Basically this is a typical roasted non-fruity porter/stout, but this one has all its flavor elements well levelled and it makes for a really nice session black beer. I sat down at my table, slowly drank this beer while typing my rating on my notebook PC, and when I was done I was still sitting at the same table, so I guess it is true that having a Bad Attitude will get you nowhere.

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 (1025) - 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 (1052) - 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.
