Bottle - Rich black with red hues. Crema head that holds solid. Light , green hop aroma that seems to be more prominent in these dark styles. Quite spritzy, ash notes up front and a mellow mix of char malts, dabs of dark chocolate and the earthy, herbal hop finish. Good drop...

A drier, more ’ashy’ take on a fine New Zealand porter. Marginally inferior to the original, in my opinion, based on a side-by-side tasting in Sydney. They look identical, which in this case is an asset as the Yeastie Boys brew very good-looking beers. This aroma seemed fruitier than the original, with blackcurrant and floral notes atop a more typical treacle. The palate had more spritz than the original, which doesn’t really flatter the style. Lots of roasted malt dryness in a rich flavour mix. I’d probably like this more if I’d tasted it in isolation but a comparison with the original did it few favours. (RateBeer Sydney Xmas Gathering 2009 - cheers Yalnikim and apologies for taking so long to get this rate up.)

dark brown/red in colour with small toffee coloured head. Roast chocolate flavour with big hop aftertaste.

This one seems more foreign stout to regular PKB’s porter. Noticeably darker head, with flavours more in the chocolaty, creamy roast realm through the length of it. Like Sinha or even Abbotsford Stout. Richly flavoured, but not intense. Nice, subtle dark fruit esters, treacle and prickly roast in the finish. UK-style hop aroma pops its head up after a while, but otherwise not especially hoppy. Mouthfeel is slightly flabby, perhaps lacking a bit of bitterness for structure. A very straightforward beer, what you see is what you get. Which I suppose makes it very good, but not quite great.

Very much a hopped up porter, though not offensively so. Lots of roasty malt topped with a NW world hop blast of passionfruit and bitterness. Well made and belies it’s alcohol content. Throw in from Nate for the goal. Cheers.

Aroma of coffee and nuts (the food), with some chocolate and molasses - lovely. Flavours are dry and tangy, with hints of a robust stout. Gorgeous piny hops in the background. Yummmm

Very stouty, comapired to the previous PKBs. Aroma is mostly coffee, with hints of chocolate. Pleanty of roasty -stout goodness on the palate with a moderate chop character to balance. A hint of alcohol. Smooth in the mouth. A different beast to PKB 09.

Bottle. This was poured after the PKB2009. Nose is stunted though there is elements of lightly roasted malt and coffee and underlying chocolaty tones. The flavour is same but lifted up a notch with a pleasant dark malt sweetness. I found this lacked the smooth and sexy balance of its predecessor. A hint of roast and ash in the finish. Not a bad beer by any means and glad I got to try this one. (RateBeer Sydney Xmas Gathering 2009 - cheers Yalnikim!)

Very roasty, ash and smoke dominate with a fairly light, but acidic mouth. Doesnt have nearly the depth or complexity as the Pot Kettle 2009, but now I realize these are not only two different beers, they are two different styles - very confusing branding by the brewery. If you like roasty, ash, smokey stouts, then this beer is for you.

Handpull at Hashigo Zake. Pours almost pitch black, red edges. Nice tan head. Very stouty aroma, chocolaty, coffee, with a hint of the green stuff. Less hoppy on the nose than previous incarnations.
Flavour is huge, hoppy, roasty. Quite dry. Dark chocolate, plenty of hop flavour, balanced bitterness.
A wonderfully complex stout, with great hops. I never like music remixes, but this beer one is great.
