C’est ma version d’une porter avec un houblonnage renforcé: 50 IBU pour « seulement » 5,2-5,5 % d’alcool. Elle contient pratiquement la teneur en houblon d’une IPA, mais sa couleur brun-noir provient des malts rôtis. Je la brasse une ou deux fois par an.

2012-09-29, bottle from Au Grain d’Orge, Crissier, 6% ABV, bb 12-2013, 7-4-7-4-14=37
Dark brown color, with short head retention. There is a mild but very nice aroma of fruity hops, that cover some dusty roasted malt. Good flavor of roasted malt and caramel, lean body, with a strong and quality hopping, resiny; some more roasted malt in the end. Very good.

2009-04-03, bottle from Au Grain d’Orge, Crissier, 5.3% ABV, 6-4-7-3-14=34
Brown color; finally a beer from this brewery with a good head, medium sized and correctly compact. Light chocolate aroma. Good mouthfeel, quite strong body, strong chocolate flavor with roasted malt; good bitterness. Ends with more roasted malt. Quite powerful for this gravity, very good.
