DruncanVeasey (7768) - NUNEATON, 3rd, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2015
Keg, St Andrews Brew House, Norwich, 02/09/15. Thick filthy tobacco collar on glossy mahogany. Dense wafting flavour layered with dark chocolate, humbug, blueberry and plum. Nose After Eight peppermint, coffee grounds, cigar linger, plummy undertones. Absolutely hallucinatory with flavour after a week of pissy lager.

Keg (St. Andrews Brewhouse, Norwich) (7+:4+:7+:4+:14+=3.6+++++)
Nice black, not even any glints when held up to the light, cappuccino head. Lovely coffee-ey and chocolatey aroma. Rich roasty body, burnt but not astringent at all. Lovely milkiness in the palate. A super stout porter.

Alengrin (3547) - BELGIUM - AUG 13, 2015
At GBBF. Almost black porter with stable, light beige head; aroma of cocoa, black peppercorns, dried banana, toast, some floral hops. Restrained fruitiness, caramelly sweetishness quickly overcome by dry roasted bitterness but remaining gentle, bit thin body, roasted and florally hoppy bittering finish. Typical old school English porter (to the extent this style is ’recreatable’ from the past, that is). Thanks to Ster from the BeerTemple for the suggestion!
