Rather marvellous. Yes, more stouty. This is a kick-ass beer. Keeps on giving, like me on a clearout day. Much like today. The better half is reading Simplicity Parenting. I love that shit. Throw everything out. Reduce the junk. Quality not quantity. Took 6 plastic bags full of not-amazing kids books to the charity shop. But this beer isnt simple, but simple in its complexity. I am a twat.

ClubGonzo (5576) - Bergen, NORWAY - SEP 21, 2012
Bottle from Black body, massive creamy white head. Nice. Nose is coffee, rye, licorice, hints of ashes and booze. Taste is burnt toast, smooth rye tones, grains, bitter grass. Smooth, near-oily palate. Little smoke, but an elegant and forthright porter nevertheless.

harrisoni (17684) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 17, 2012
33cl bottle from The Bottle Shop, Canterbury. Black beer with thin tan head. American hoppy aroma. Its like an American style imperial stout to be honest. Good choc. I mean its fun and dry and choccy and big hops all over it and bitter on the finish. But is it any good? Just because you do a spicy rye impy dark beer does it require industrial amounts of hops? Yep entertaining definitely

Bottle at home 7th September 2012. A return of the uk summer celebrated with a Thornnridge Raven, summerwine Diablo and this Lovely smoked porter to finish. Pours deep black and rich, dark tan head, smell is ash and smoke. Taste is rich with good bitterness, smoke, ash, hints of liquorice. Nice complex porter

Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Smells oarsoame. Looks greeeeeat. Oh wow - its a delicious beer and thats for sure. A but like a Foreign Stout if you ask me. Superbly hoppy, rich malty mouthfeel. Thick, sweet, cat piss hop. Outstanding. Brodies are marvellous.

Scopey (13557) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 15, 2012
Bottle at the Evening Star, Brighton. It pours near black, with a large beige head. The nose is roasted malt, hint of smoke, bitter chocolate and some dark fruit. The taste is roasted malt, smoke (but not overdone), charcoal, toast, bitter chocolate, burnt notes, spice and a little alcohol warmth. Medium-full body and fine carbonation. Robust and not overly smoky. A tasty porter.
