Pours an almost opaque black with a small brown head. Lightly tart Aroma, roasted malts, chocolate! Whiskey and boozer... Slightly offensive and off. Taste is pretty much the same too. Just light whiskey sourness that’s off. King_Alex_II (1228) - SWITZERLAND - SEP 13, 2015
Pitch black color with foam ring. The smell is rather thin. The taste has a solid whisky and light smoky note and a not dominant porter body. Dry aftertaste. Not bad, but a below its potential. anstei (2469) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - SEP 6, 2015
Tap at CBF. Vinegar and whisky aroma, quite strong. Still some porter left, but mostly whisky and carbonization. The combination works very well! SinH4 (5901) - Garching b. M?nchen, GERMANY - SEP 6, 2015
At Craft Bier Festival Rapperswil. Black color with beige head. Aroma is sweet, a bit fruity, even a bit tart. Taste is dark chocolate and malts, fruity, some oak sugars, a bit spicy. Full-bodied, good stuff. danielecamo (839) - ITALY - MAY 19, 2015
Alla spina. Aroma tostato, leggero acetico, caffè, whisky appena percettibile. Al palato corpo un po troppo leggero, whisky non molto intenso, poco caratterizzata.
teorn88 (7682) - Rimini, ITALY - DEC 2, 2014
Backlog rating. 33cl bottle from Grand Cru, Rimini. It pours a dark copper / brown color with a small beige head. Aroma is sweet and woody, with notes of rum soaked oak chips, vanilla, roasted malts, toffee pudding, resins, dried figs. Taste is sweet and mellow, with notes of whisky, vanilla, leather, port wine, smoked wood, tangy red berries. Finishes tangy and lightly boozy. Overall, weird, not exactly what you’d expect and would need more body, but I found it tasty and enjoyable nonetheless eduardovl (1467) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 2, 2014 330ml bottle served in a tulip glass.
An English Porter aged in Whisky barrels. ABV is actually 10.02%, not 8.15% as the "regular" Two Penny.
A: Pours a deep brown color forming a medium and thin bubbled beige head. Low retention and only few spotty lacings left in the glass
S: Roasted, woody and tart in the nose. Light notes of whisky. Cherry wood. Roasted malts, light notes of chocolate. Grassy hops in the end. Alcohol is well hidden by the wood tartness
T: Slightly sweet upfront. Quite roasted and tart. Again, some light notes of whisky and cherry wood. Nice hops bitterness. Good herby and grassy notes of American Chinook and Amarillo hops
M: Medium to full body. Low carbonation and nice roasted and tart aftertaste
O: Good drinkability. Seems to be a bit infected by the barrels which gives it an acid and tart taste that does not fit with the style. However, I have the impression that’s done on purpose, to give it a wild beer profile.

On tap at Pibar, Lausanne. Dark brown, creamy beige head. Oranges and smoked malts nose. Notes of orangey whisky, caramel, roasted caramel. Well-balanced. Nice. wilshire87 (12) - Avella (AV), ITALY - JAN 22, 2014
