XXIV. 24 years after Black Butte Porter’s debut, our potent, layered, imperial tribute returns. As usual, it’s a jazz riff, guided by the brewer’s muse and the lure of exotic ingredients. Artisanal dark chocolate nibs. Daglet dates. Mission figs. It may, possibly, hopefully, be the best edition yet. But, as it should be, you’ll be the judge of that.

Poured from a 750 ml bottle. Pours a viscous dark brown with a thin, khaki colored head of foam. Aroma has dark chocolates and dark fruits. The dark chocolate is intensely bitter. Lots of layers of roasty bitter flavors going on here.

Scopey (9735) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 11, 2013
Bottle thanks to Bruce at his 30th. It pours near black with small light tan head. The nose is roasted malt, toffee, Scottish tablet, alcohol, burnt caramel, molasses, chocolate, brown sugar and Christmas pudding. The taste is rich-roasted malt, cooking chocolate, caramel, dark fruit, date, alcohol warmth, toast, burnt notes and some decent bitterness. Medium-full body, fine carbonation and oily mouth-feel. Pretty tasty, warming and well rounded. Nice in small measures.
