Garrold (3757) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 8, 2016
UPDATED: MAY 9, 2016 Bottle, by way of trade with Rich182. Huge thanks, Rich. Clear, dark, chestnut brown. Thin, dense, sticky, viscous, tan head. Aroma of light roast coffee. Soft, gingery spice. Some cocoa. Some fruity chocolate. Subtle cinnamon. Maybe wouldn’t have picked it up if I wasn’t looking for it? Soft, fruity tang behind all that. Whatever, it smells great. Taste is light, tangy bitter. Soft, vanilla sweetness on the lips. Smooth, airy palate. Very easy drinking. Fruity, vinous, cocoa bitter finish. Nice one.

77ships (7023) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAY 8, 2016
500 ml. bottle sampled @ Hopishop #3. 11.18.15. Pours black syrup with no head; nose is thick molasses, umami roast, syrup, licorice, low coffee & sadly no vanilla or cinnamon. Taste is roasted coffee, syrup, umami, basic syrup, low herbal, bitter basic malt roast, cheap syrup, low licorice, very faint hazel. Syrupy & umami. Overly umami for me, one would expect more classical sweetness from a cinnamon, vanilla & coffee porter. Yeah where is my vanilla & where is cinnamon? This might not be ubber fresh by no way should so much vanilla or cinnamon fade to nothing this quickly. Hill Farmstead is for sure a very good but the nearly religious cult of Shaun Hill worship remains lost for me. This is a decent porter, fans might argue that this is balanced, I would argue that if you brag about using cinnamon & vanilla it should be there in the taste. The more remote your brewery is, the better it supposedly is. Someone I feel like Americans try to out-hype each other.

Mortlach (1792) - Rome, ITALY - APR 27, 2016
750ml bottle shared by luttonm @FrankenBierFest (Rome). Thank you Matt! Pours deep brown with a medium cappuccino head. Aroma of dark chocolate, coffee, lots of vanilla. Flavour is rich and complex with a rounded body, medium sweet with a good bitter end. Medium to high body, medium to low carbonation. Great one!
