COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Named for the ridiculous 4 foot dirt pile we had to put our brewery on to get us out of the FEMA-designated 100 year floodplain (no-one can remember this part of Spearfish ever flooding). This robust porter is black in color, is medium-bodied and has a rich, roasted malt flavor ending with a pleasing hop flavor and mild hop bitterness.

Scopey (16226) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 17, 2013
Can at Theydon B’s 5K, thanks to Ryan. It pours deep brown with a small beige head. The nose is cocoa, roasty, toast, earth, caramel and sweet brown sugar. The taste is roasted malt, toast, earth, brown bread, cocoa, light toast, decent bitterness, cardboard, caramel and cola with a dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Fairly standard porter by all acounts. Decent nonetheless.

Can shared at my 5K tasting at Bruce’s pad, huge thanks to Ryan for leaving this state whale with us to tick the fuck out of SD, 13/11/13. Very dark mahogony brown with a light tan covering that thins to a swirl. Nose is dark toffee, earthy tones, light cocoa, mineral notes. Taste comprises light roast, treacle toffee, brown sugars, brown bread, earthy cocoa. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, drying finale with light roast. Ok porter but that was not what this tick was all about !

Big cheers to Ryan for this. Nothing to rave on about here, it’s just an absolutely solid as fuck porter. Easy drinking. Just solid with a little roughness to give it that something extra. The name is appropriate. Good stuff
