COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The perfect robust porter: The sharp bitterness of the black malt sits nicely within the overall malty sweetness. Full bodied with a medium hop bitterness.

Six different malts are combined to create this complex Robust Porter. Perle and Willamette hops are added to fashion the perfect balance for which the Ten Pin is renowned.

Pours black with a very dark khaki head that hangs around for a bit leaving watery lacing. Aromas of roasted malts, vanilla. Tastes of bittersweet chocolate, chocolate malt leaving a somewhat bitter aftertaste. Decent, nothing memorable.

Yorker (1262) - Herning, DENMARK - SEP 9, 2013
35 cl bottle @ home. Pours dark brown with an off-white head that leaves very little lacing. Aroma is roasted malt, milk chocolate, and cocoa. Flavour is much like the aroma – with an ever so slightly bitter finish. A little thin.

Perfectly decent porter. Seems the evening took a Colorado direction. Yep, enjoyed this and it was nice to be able to sit outside. I say sit, I mean stand. I asked a chap with his two friends if we could share his table, to rest a drink on while we chatted. He said no because he was in a big group. Said group must have thought he was as much of a prick as I did as they didn’t join him in the hour I stood next to the fucker.

Keg at Brewdog Brum. Perfectly pleasant Porter, sampled during the BBB photoshoot. Smooth mouthfeel, some gravy granule in the flavour.
