Glouglouburp (6104) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 22, 2014
In short: A thin characterless black beer. Meh.
How: Tap at brewpub.
The look: Clear golden body topped by a persistent off-white head.
In long: The timid nose is a bit roasted with also some mild flowery notes. Body is on the thin side, a medium carbonation, typical mouthfeel for an extra-clean thin thirst ale. Taste is uninteresting. There is some watered-down toffee along, a tiny bit of roast, some Dr Pepper soda, some perfumy-flowery hops. The beer has no corpulence, no character, it feels too industrial clean. I can’t give it a bad score because it is drinkable, but it is boringly drinkable, I give beers like this one a 50% score in all categories. If I was more religious, every day I would wake up and thank god for all beers not brewed not brewed by The Commons Brewery.

Theydon_Bois (9957) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - OCT 7, 2014
Keg at GBBF ’14, day 4, 15/08/14. Black with a well appointed tan covering that retains well. Nose is light roast, grain, toffee, light cocoa rub. Taste comprises roast malt, dark toffee, cocoa rinse. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, light roasty vibes in the closure. Ok porter, bit 1D, not one I’d rush back to!

Bonita espuma que dura poco. El aroma es a cereal húmedo. El sabor es como una coca cola sin gas un poco ahumada o torrefacta. Muy poco recomendable.
