DuffMan (7624) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 19, 2011
Bottle, shared by Parksy. Pours a nearly still opaque dark brown. Aroma is rich chocolate and dark fruits, hints of blueberries even, very enticing. Full bodied, with heaps of flavour, lovely fudgey chocolate, plums, blueberries, background flavours of treacle, vanilla, black tea. Soft silky mouthfeel. Light acidity in the finish. Good length to the flavours. This is the most satisfying porter I’ve had in a while, and one with old-school english character. I need to find more of this!

VertBaconStrips (2151) - Asshat, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 17, 2011
Poured out a near black brew with dark red hues with a fizzy brown cap that vanishes instantly. Really good aroma with depth. Roast, mild molasses, vanilla, light spices, plums, warm chocolate, faint hints of coffee, raspberry. The flavour is pretty good as well with hidden characteristics. Mild bitterness, licorice, hints of salt, roasted malts, plenty of richness, alcohol, plum, I dig but don’t love.. maybe it’s the extra alcohol. Fairly smooth with an alcoholic bite and sweetness and ends malty and strong. This is a good beer - a beer worthy of another go.
