yourilevesque (903) - Quebec, CANADA - NOV 30, 2015
Un liquide parfaitement filtré, brun et aux reflets rubis surmonté d’une jolie mousse éphémère mais qui laisse de belles dentelles sur mon verre. Arômes minces de torréfaction, de jeune café légèrement vanillé et de noisette. Beaucoup de choses mais l’ensemble manque de tonus. Les saveurs sont davantage affirmées et j’y décèle beaucoup de noix, un houblon présent sur un liquide mince et plutôt aqueux. Une belle effervescence rend le tout encore plus léger et facile à boire. Une rondeur ainsi qu’une profondeur auraient été les bienvenues.

12oz bottle poured into a long stemmed tulip glass on 16-Nov-2015. Almost black in colour with a creamy tan coloured head. Aroma of cocoa and coffee. Creamy bittersweet chocolate and coffee on the palate and a little bit of sweetness remaining on the palate.

Barely any bitterness but very rich on aroma. Taste is thick, malty chocolate. Hints of a coffee/deep woody note. Good beer over all for a nice beer at dinner time.

No del todo redonda. Desde luego entra bien pero al final carga un poco. Difícil encontrar y tampoco tan especial.

UPDATED: NOV 24, 2015 Bottle from Foot of the Walk (JDW), Leith. Very, very dark brown. Lots of visible carbonation. Coffee aroma mixes with fruit and a bit of spice, almost peppery. Sweet caramel taste, a bit too cloying but still tasty. Gorgeous silky palette. Not one of my favourite SN beers but still well above average in general.

Hippoman (525) - Durham, ENGLAND - NOV 22, 2015
355ml Bottle from The Bishops’ Mill (JDW), Durham, £2.99 Black pour with a thin and diminishing, cream-coloured head. The nose is muted but some pleasant, rich cocoa does come through. It’s full of wonderful, indulgent dark chocolate flavours with some sweeter, creamy tones too. There’s also a yeasty, marmite bite which gives it a little welcome bitterness and prevents it from falling into the trap of being overly rich. Very good porter - I’d like to drink one a little warmer to fully appreciate the malt character.
