Prototipo dell’odierno motore a scoppio, il “due cilindri” ha contribuito a trasformare l’idea di movimento. Omaggio ad un’invenzione rivoluzionaria, questa birra vuole accendere il piacere di bere scuro: negli amanti del genere e in chi (ancora) non lo è. Nera proprio come i motori, la nostra Porter risulta delicata nelle tostature (con toni di caffè e liquirizia), riuscendo fluida nella bevuta. Supera sé stessa con formaggi o pesce affumicati, carne o pesce alla griglia, dessert a base di caffè o cioccolato e con il croccante. ABV from 5.3% to 5%.

HogTownHarry (6376) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 12, 2015
September 6, 2014 - bottle shared by harrisoni. Black pour, minimal head - looks fairly thick and oily though. Taste and aroma are nutty chocolatey malt, plenty of roast, some nice "green" hop bitterness emerges in the taste - almost a dessert stout, on the thick side leaving a pleasing roasty chewy aftertaste - thank you Ian!

Leighton (18719) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 15, 2015
Bottle shared on an old train lumbering through the Isle of Wight...typical RB day out. Pours rich brown with a foamy tan head. The aroma holds dark fruits, dried berries. Medium sweet flavor with some oily chocolate, moderate roast, light ashy bitterness. Medium bodied with fine carbonation; lightly chewy. Finishes fairly sweet with notes of toasted bread, old fruit, light dirty leather, berries and plums. Good stuff.

Semi opaque dark brown beer, small pale tan head. Palate is light and semi dry with mild fine carbonation. Mellow dark malts, very light roast. Traces of coffee and tangy dark fruits. Dry finish. Inoffensive but at the end of the day, just another porter.

Theydon_Bois (17239) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - SEP 13, 2014
Bottle on a 1938 stock train after pissing off the end of the platform next to some other persons turd ... yes its the IOW Jolly Day, bottle from the GBBF, 24/08/14. Light black with a moderate tan covering that retains. Nose is roast malt, dark toffee, light cocoa, brown bread. Taste comprises earthy tones, cocoa, dark toffee, roast malt. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with roasty tones. Ok porter, fairly simple stuff but ticks the style boxes.

Scopey (12711) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 25, 2014
Bottle on the Wibbly-Wobbly train during IoW Jolly. It pours near black with a small light tan head. The nose is rich roast, toast, treacle, cherry cola and mild soy sauce. The taste is roasted malt, toast, earth, cola, cocoa, mild acidity, coffee and chewy malt with a dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Straight-forward and easy-going. Solid.
