Prototipo dell’odierno motore a scoppio, il “due cilindri” ha contribuito a trasformare l’idea di movimento. Omaggio ad un’invenzione rivoluzionaria, questa birra vuole accendere il piacere di bere scuro: negli amanti del genere e in chi (ancora) non lo è. Nera proprio come i motori, la nostra Porter risulta delicata nelle tostature (con toni di caffè e liquirizia), riuscendo fluida nella bevuta. Supera sé stessa con formaggi o pesce affumicati, carne o pesce alla griglia, dessert a base di caffè o cioccolato e con il croccante. ABV from 5.3% to 5%.

Semi opaque dark brown beer, small pale tan head. Palate is light and semi dry with mild fine carbonation. Mellow dark malts, very light roast. Traces of coffee and tangy dark fruits. Dry finish. Inoffensive but at the end of the day, just another porter.

Leighton (22550) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 15, 2015
Bottle shared on an old train lumbering through the Isle of Wight...typical RB day out. Pours rich brown with a foamy tan head. The aroma holds dark fruits, dried berries. Medium sweet flavor with some oily chocolate, moderate roast, light ashy bitterness. Medium bodied with fine carbonation; lightly chewy. Finishes fairly sweet with notes of toasted bread, old fruit, light dirty leather, berries and plums. Good stuff.

2012-11-16, draught at Pazzeria, Milan, 5% ABV, 6-4-7-4-14=35
Black color, creamy brown head. Moderate aroma of roasted malt, lightly milky. Smooth mouthfeel, balanced flavor of roasted malts and dark chocolate, with a nice milky presence, relatively low bitterness, very good control of the roastiness.

2012-08-20, bottle courtesy of Jesper; batch L11277 09/12, 5.3% ABV, 7-4-7-3-15=36
Black color; generous head. Nice aroma of roasted malts and chocolate. Highly carbonated, correct body structure, quite good chocolate flavor; ordinary bitterness.
Good as is; with less carbonation and more final it would be very good.

Bottle on a 1938 stock train after pissing off the end of the platform next to some other persons turd ... yes its the IOW Jolly Day, bottle from the GBBF, 24/08/14.
Light black with a moderate tan covering that retains.

Taste comprises earthy tones, cocoa, dark toffee, roast malt.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with roasty tones.
Ok porter, fairly simple stuff but ticks the style boxes.
