A re-worked Alice Porter especially for Christmas. With orange zest, cacao and a tiny bit of chilli.

The perfect beer for Turkey, The Queen’s Speech, boring relativies and boozed up Pictionary.

Merry Christmas.

ogreface (1390) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 10, 2013
csakajosor.hu Majdnem teljesen fekete színe van, kapucsínó színű, közepes méretű krémes és tömör habbal, ami hamar búcsút mond nekünk. Kicsit fűszeresen illatos, érdekes borsos, szegfűszeges, még egy csipet kaport? is érzek benne a szokásos porteres jegyek mellett. Íze is ilyen érdekes, zöld fűszeres, borsos, picit csípős, kakaós, fekete csokis, kávés és pörkölt szotyis. Könnyű teste van, de nem vizes és mérsékelten bugyborékos. Utóíze keserédes és fűszeres. Különleges és könnyen csúszik.

suurjuust (2917) - ESTONIA - JAN 1, 2013
Dark brown, medium beige head with creamy retention. Nose is malt, cocoa, caramel, hints of chili. Taste is malty with cocoa, slight smokiness. Semi-dry finish with somewhat bitter roast and sweet chili. Lingering mild roasty bitterness. Body is on the thin side, carbonation is soft.

kanerjus (73) - orimattila, FINLAND - DEC 22, 2012
tuoksussa jonkinlaista mausteisuutta mikä peittää kaiken muun alleen. maku onkin sitten normaalimpaa porter linjaa. chilikö se jälkimaussa polttelee? etiketissä siitä maininta ja jälkimaku on selkeästi poltteleva. periaatteessa mausteet ja chili toimii mutta jotenkin vaisuksi jää silti. runko on liian kevyt.
