Thanks to Mr Garvie himself! Gusher! When under control its an opaque dark brown beer with a small pale tan head. Palate is light, airy and pretty dry. Mellow and dry dark malt. Pretty mild smoke. There is a different type of tang here that I would not normally associate with a porter so I assume is the tea. Finishes dry. Interesting but (cough) not my cup of tea!

Bottled. A black beer with a huge fluffy dark brown head, seems infected. The aroma has notes coffee, brettanomyces, and roasted malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of roasted malt, coffee, and hints of brett, leading to a dry roasted finish. The body is light.

Scopey (13558) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 19, 2013
Bottle at Chrisos Pre-GBBF Shindig 2013. Long-lasting gusher! It pours cloudy deep brown with a small beige head. The nose is roasted malt, coffee, toast, earth, toasted oat and mild acidity. The taste is roasty, earth, toast, dry-roast, coffee, light smoke and burnt cocoa and dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Interesting,,,,

330ml bottle, at tasting on 18 November 2012. Thanks to Craig for providing. Dark brown. Generous beige head. Malty toffee and molasses notes on the nose. Vaguely smoky and rather "scented" flavour which I guess comes from the Lapsang Souchong. Which, as teas go, I dont really like actually. Rather light body for a stout. Finishes with a fair bit of residual sweetness. Interesting but just not really my cup of tea. As long as it floats Craigs boat thats the main thing though.
