HopsIPAndDrunk (43) - Oklahoma, USA - NOV 16, 2010
Smells a bit like fermented hay (for the record, thats not an insult! Strange as it seems, fermented barn hay is nose candy!!) Dark red when held up to light, but overlaps into a darkest-brown-possible/black color without the aid of light. Medium-bodied and flat on the palate. Like almost everything Samuel Smith makes, it has a light sweet flavor that finishes medium bitter. Something I’ve noticed that sets Samuel Smiths apart is the fresh taste of water that is used derived from their ’Original Yorkshire Wells’. I’d give it two thumbs-up, but I’d drop my glass. Just one more of Samuel Smith’s masterpieces!!

PapaVillum (425) - Valby, DENMARK - AUG 29, 2014
550 ml, flaske, 5,0 % ABV, købt i SuperBest i Domus Vista på Frederiksberg, 30. august 2014. Flot brun/sort engelsk ufiltreret Porter med pæn 5-6 cm tyk moccafarvet skumtop. Aroma af træ, læder, ristet malt, lakrids, salt, alkohol/vodka. Godt sur og bitter smag af ristet malt og humle. Det bitre er dog klart tydeligst. Svag sødme som anonym følgesvend. Surheden er første akt, hvorefter bitterheden overtager scenen. Et niveau mellem lavt til medium kuldioxid indhold gør Taddy Porteren let cremet og blød i munden. Ganske vellykket Porter med en fuldendt og helstøbt balance. Og meget smag er der hivet ud af de 5,0 ABV.

60minuteman (729) - Frazer, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 11, 2014
Dark charcoal black, minimal tan head. Aroma of roast, hops, coffee, bits of cacao, malt and barley. Flavor is similar. Earthy porter, very good balance. Can get more flavor from other porters but the Taddy brings another element to it. It is sharp, balanced and clean it tastes just like it should.
