This is a beer for anyone who’s ever asked or been asked for a pony. Now you can have your share in Catherine’s pony. Who’s Catherine? It’s irrelevant. A DIY punk pony that you can have as many of as you like, stabling them in your glass and toasting to their success. Careful, this delectable smoked imperial porter of a pony can kick! With a nose like goose berries and blueberries, stuffed with coffee, covered in chocolate and toasted on a campfire by the beach, Catherine’s Pony is robust and imposing with a herculean mouthfeel. Rich and smooth it grows some teeth as the roasted smoky flavours battle for prominence over the assertive bitterness. A satisfying hoppiness rounds off the palete, leaving you thirsty for the next mouthful. Saddle up, sit back and enjoy this punk rock pony collaboration with London’s own Beavertown Brewery.

Its been a while since I had this one, had it at a beer tasting, so not a very large sample. From what I remember, it was quite smokey...

Bottle shared at Beavertown on RBESG ’14, day 3 09/08/14 thanks to Ed (Beese). Extremely dark mahogany brown with a moderate beige covering. Nose carries a rich malt profile, earthy notes, chocolate, light vanilla, subtle smoke. Taste comprises roasted malt, toffee fudge, cocoa rub, gentle rausch. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with light spice. Decent stuff, carries off the near 9% very well!

Bottle during RBESG14. Some people have a cup of tea in the morning, I like a strong dark coffee beer. Love the coffee love how the abb is hidden. Like having an ice cold espresso. Malts are excellent. Really enjoyed this beer. Touch of smoke but not massive.
