CBC. Opaque dark brown beer, little pale tan head. Light palate, a little dry and crispy. Rich malts, good coffee. Slight roast bitterness. A light touch of the Port Barrel. Little vanilla wood with surprisingly subtle dark fruits. Semi dry finish. Good stuff but was hoping for something really barrelly here!

Sample @ CBC 2013. The pour’s deep brown with no head whatsoever. The nose is soft, earthy port, dark fruits. Coffee, raisin bread. Rich. The taste is similar. Roasted apples, figs, and pear. Rich dark roasted chocolate and hints of coffee. Supple, full body. Overall, a very pleasant beer. Nice balance.

Holmen1 (2293) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAY 14, 2013
Fra fat på CBC mai-13: definitivt den jeg kommer til å huske av de tre fra Brodies denne dagen. Kullsort med tett, beige skum. Aroma og smak av sjokolade, portvin og røstet malt. Fløyelsmyk munnfølelse med vanilje fra fatet i bakgrunnen. God, passelig bitter ettersmak, et riktig koseøl. Bør på investeringslista.
