Theydon_Bois (16623) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 11, 2015
Bottle split at LKS ’Beers of London’ Tasting, high up, 10/12/14. Rich mahogany brown with moderate light tan spotting. Nose is toffee, nutty, light brett strokes, red berries, spice, woody must, cocoa rub. Taste comprises toffee, light manure, chocolate, faint brett. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, semi drying close. Ok brett infused porter - fair subtle in this respect.

Tasting at Leighton’s Flat. Lightly hazy red - amber beer, no head. Palate is light and semi dry. Very modest fine carbonation. Mild malts, a little toffee. Dried fruits. Something that taste like cinnamon but maybe is skewed brett. Light finish. Okay.

Scopey (12227) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 14, 2014
Bottle at Leighton’s. It pours murky dark brown with a small beige head. The nose is sweet, sticky, blueberry, blackcurrant, earthy brett, spice, smoke and mild acidity. The taste is sweet, oily, roasted malt, earth, dull roast, rather drying, acidity and some astringency with a dry finish. Medium body, fine carbonation and oily mouth-feel. A bid odd. Some weird acidic/acrid bitterness about it. Not sold on this one.

Bottle shared at the chriso pre-Christmas tasting 2014 - London. Pours deep brown with a huge, foamy khaki head. The nose has some tangy dark fruits, mild funk, dirt. Medium sweet flavor with well toasted bread, light farm yard, poo, cocoa, dark fruits, berries, leather. Medium bodied with lively carbonation. More leathery fruts on the finish, dark malts, burnt grains, berries, earth. Not bad.

Bottle shared at chriso’s winter tasting 7/12/2014. Mid brown/ caramel coloured pour with lasting mid tan head. Aroma is funky, horsey beer, a little musty, dark fruit, gateau. Flavour is composed of tart fruit, coco powder, musty, horsey funk. Palate is quite thin, high carbonation. Lingering dark choc and tart fruit. I really like this.

Bottle, bb 3-2015. Pours black with a tan head. Aroma: roast, brett funkyness. Taste: liquorice, vanilla, chocolate, brett, wood, white currants, somehow reminds me a bit of vanilla coke. Surprisingly full body for the abv, smooth mouthfeel, moderate sweet, moderate carbonation, long lasting sweet liquorice finish.

yngwie (16482) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 16, 2014
Bottle. It pours a creamy, dark beige body over a next to black body. Nice lacings. Some funky notes in the aroma, with dried fruits, dark chocolate, caramel and prunes. It’s lightly sweetish on the palate, mostly on the dry side though, with dark chocolate, caramel, roasted malts and some prunes. Full body and a pleasant carbonation level. Lasting roasted finish with prunes, dark chocolate and caramel sauce. Tasteful and complex. And very nice. 140816

ElDesmadre (3078) - Mikołów, POLAND - JUL 28, 2014
Bottle, traded with Bierkoning. Very interesting... it initially reeks of horse sweat and a Polish smoked sheep milk cheese in the state of decomposition, so that I had to wait for a while before I was able to convince myself into taking the first sip. Then somehow that stench stopped being nauseating while remaining intriguing, before shifting toward pleasant by the end of the glass. Apart from horse sweat, there is the porter as such, with roast, sweetish chocolate and salty soy sauce. The malts are pleasantly enlivened by the funky brett notes so that it is quite a refreshing porter. Very tasty actually, once I got used to the smell. It is a similar case with very ripe camembert. It stinks but it tastes good and even the stench is not something to be missed.
