Thanks to my secret santa for this one. It’s dark, a little syrupy. A crisp and assertive aroma, coffee, whole wheat bread. Taste is terrific. This beer has the bold flavors and complexity you normally see in higher-abv stouts and porters. Great.

Pours coffee brown with not too much head. Nose has red berries, burnt malt and chocolate. Coffee, chocolate and juice-like bitterness and sourness. Some notes of alcohol still remain, might be better a bit older. A nice and slightly different porter.

0,5l bottle. Black, small caramel head. Aroma of caramel and licorice. Mild. Roasty, bitter, dark. Good porter. Now I need to figure out the difference between porters and stouts...

BOTTLE 50 CL. The aroma is not exactly mind-blowing - fruit sweetness (sweet, but in a fresh way, no caramel, no dried fruit), some black malt „warmth” (again, not extreme, no coffee) and possibly a touch of smoke. The flavour, on the other hand, is quite rich. Again, fresh fruity sweetness, soft black malts, moderate hop bitterness with a touch of acidity and some light astringency that spices things up. An excellent porter.

Bottle bbe 12.5.2017. Extremely foamy, big fluffy head. Aroma quite mild, molasses. Taste sweet, dark chocolate, slightly roasty. High carbonation cuts the sweetness. Tasty, but doesn't stand out.

Bonne porter de caractère. Qui développe de bons arômes de cacao et de caramel, on tend vers une stout tout en restant un peu plus délicate. C’est très bien.

Beese (2560) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 11, 2014
Draught at BrewDog Camden on 9 Apr 2012. Poured black, with a dense tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, light ash, leather and earth. Liquorice in the flavour, with coffee and dark chocolate. Medium to full mouthfeel. Finish was burnt malt, treacle and oak.

50cl bottle.Dark brown colour with a nice tan head. Dark malts, dried fruit and smoke in the aroma. Soft to average carbonation and medium body. Taste is bitter with some light sweetness and dryness in the finish. Overall, a very good beer.
