ROBINSON’S TROOPER RED ‘N’ BLACK PORTER

Iron Maiden’s Bruce Dickinson re-designed 1850′s recipe for transitional English-styled porter. Besides the stylishly expected chocolate-roasted caramel malting and nutty dried fruiting, a peat-dried dewy earthiness and molasses-draped burgundy wining gain strength. In the recess, grape-leafed black cherry, fig and date fruiting gains spicy hop tingle and sugared cola nuttiness.

TWO ROADS / EVIL TWIN PACHAMAMA PORTER

On tap at Doherty’s, interesting novelty combines light aji panca chili peppering with sweet potato and purple maize adjuncts, but curiosities get stifled by ashen black chocolate-malted cocoa powdering and sour coffee murk. Dry cola, walnut and Brazil nut illusions drift by. In canned version, dry cocoa-dried black chocolate malting gains strength against less obvious chili-peppered potato and maize influence.
