Details

A dense black pour with aromas of warm rye bread, dark cacao and a little savoury note, almost miso. This is incredibly thick on the mouthfeel. Rich chocolate but with some heavy savoury, a real umami mushroom character here. Some very subtle hints of coconut too. Not for the faint hearted, but certainly worth a try if you like the dark stuff. 

Brewery Info

The Basqueland Brewing Project is a new brewery created by three Americans living in San Sebastian who are dedicated to brewing beer on par with the Basque culinary experience. A lofty goal for some but not for Basqueland.

"We make our beer true-to-style for the refined palates of our adopted paisanos preaching the gospel of fresh beer whenever a beer bottle is not pressed to our lips. Drink fresh. Drink good. And for god’s sake, treat her like a lady."

Thick & dark with a fast dimishing head. This is what I would refer to as a real tongue coater. Has plenty of lovely coco and coconut flavour. Like a liquidised bounty bar.
Surprising!

This brew is so well integrated that the ingredients I don't like much on paper (coconut, rye, too much chocolate etc...) disappear into the delicious boozy whole! Here the sweetness is tempered by a real earthiness coming through, whilst the smoothness and ABV tango in the background. Obviously I should try more of things I'm ostensibly not a big fan of - when the recipe delivers it doesn't matter what goes into it!
very, very good imp porter

Pours a pitch black and gives off chocolate, coconut and cocoa aroma. Thick, oily mouth feel. Tastes of chocolate, banana, coconut and some spices. Ace porter!
