corkyrory66 (3654) - BELGIUM - JAN 13, 2019
UPDATED: JAN 13, 2019 Porter de 6,8 % abv, avec malts choco et crystal, blé. Recette basée sur une bière des années 1850, revue avec Bruce Dickinson. Mon exemplaire était à 15 mois après sa date. Couleur châtain roux foncé, à la clarté nette. Mousse beige, à fins flocons, en nappage de surface constant. Arômes de fruits mûrs, porto jeune, pointe d'armagnac, vin de Gaillac. 1ère bouche souple, à l'entame assez ' bastard ', à la iron maiden .. Arrière-bouche avec ortie, fanes de pommes de terre. 2ème qui ne trouve pas de meilleure assise .. on est dans le vague. Arrière-bouche sans aucune valeur gustative. Longueur qui trouve seulement l'alcool en plus de ces nuances bâtardes. Jambes courtes. Levure basique. Alcool faible, sous son niveau, il est un peu cavalier .. (trooper). Finale brève. CONCLUSION : j'ai dû quitter un excellent groupe blues rock des seventies, pour m'écouter un peu de Bruce Dickinson qui a fait une tasting session pour cette bière .. oh putain !! J'ai pris son album solo de 1998 ' chemical wedding '. J'avais bien aimé certains albums solo du mec, et j'ai tenté ceci .. C'était pas mal, mais assez ' chemical ', comme cette bière, entre le rouge et le noir, et même entre le basique et le quelconque !! (3/2/3/2/6)

UPDATED: JAN 3, 2019 Quite good and descent in porter area. Nice British styled bottle conditioned brew. Overrated perhaps for the merchandise.

Headbanger (4207) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - NOV 2, 2018
16.9 oz bottle 11/1/18 (Binny's Montgomery)-38° in English Pint. Pours a reddish black with a small tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, caramel, and toffee. Taste of the same with some chocolate and coffee along with a bitterness on the back end. This medium bodied brew is a bit light for a porter but still tasty.

16.9 ounce bottle at Winking Lizard Copley, Ohio. Smell the sweetness and the malt. Small off-white head. Taste the malt and is light bodied. Pretty smooth other than light alcohol after taste. Quite interesting beer to enjoy. Cheers!
