REVIEW #102: Evenlode (Thornbridge Brewery)

Pours out a deep chocolate brown with thin creamy head. Mild nose with some faint tobacco and a hint of hedgerow fruit. Thinner than I was expecting and a little sour fruit, not lambic-sour though, and some sherbert fizz. With the words brown porter slapped across the bottle I was expecting something dense and rich but this isn't quite that, being more in line with a 'European-style' porter; thin-ish and a little sour. The beer is matured on a bed of blackberries which impart a subtle flavour, blending with the bourbon biscuit cream malt and sugary, herbal hops. The finish is ashy and quite brief. Its a very drinkable beer with a fair bit of flavour but it lacks the complexity and presence I was hoping for.
  • MALTS: marris ottEr; brown; chocolate
  • IBU: ?
  • ABV: 6.2%
  • matured on blackberry's
