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 (6103) - 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.

nimbleprop (6160) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 1, 2015
30cl bottle from Pipetown Traders, pours a watery black with some soapy, white head. Nose has some sour cherry notes, toast and malt, stale coffee, stale cola. Flavor has more sour notes, cherry and raisin, a little vegetal, some caramel finally, toast, molasses. Finishes dry with a hint of tartness. Maybe there’s something wrong, but I liked it either way.

mansquito (4334) - Nueva York, New York, USA - SEP 2, 2015
New Beer Distributors, NYC bottle ($6): pours black with a beige head. Aroma is light chocolate and light coffee. Taste is almost entirely dark chocolate for quite a while. More light bodies than I would think. Still some creaminess. Not a bad beer.

Alesca (2) - - AUG 28, 2015 does not count
Acquistata fiera della birra ferrara fine 2014. Schiuma poco persistente. Colore scuro impenetrabile. Profumo affumicato e tostato. Gusto con forte aroma di caffe ben persistente. Sentori di cioccolato. Molto avvolgente e pastoso. Buona carbonatazione leggera secondo lo stile. Amaro ben bilanciato che sfuma nelle sensazioni di caffe? e liquerizia. Ottima birra da dopo pasto

JorgeLee (1480) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 2, 2015
On tap in Erzbierschof Zurich. Quite dark black with a big thick white head. Heavy chocolate and milky coffee flavours, not overly bitter, a bit of booze. Quite sweet and a bit lacticy actually. Hop not that pronounced. Tasty.

King_Alex_II (739) - SWITZERLAND - JUN 9, 2015
Dark black with red shades and brown foam. The smell has a lot of coffee. The taste has a particle dusty smoked coffee flavor, but a full smooth mouth feeling. Dry and smooth aftertaste.
