COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In 17th century Britain beer was the drink of the common man. Wine was for the wealthy, tea was for the weak and water was usually quite poisonous. Men, women and children drank beer morning, noon and night. The most popular type of beer was porter because of its modest price and its nutritional value. One of the most popular porter brewers, and often incorrectly credited with the invention of the beer, was Ralph Harwood. This beer is inspired by the brown porter made at the time. TASTING NOTES Enters the glass with a deep mahogany with a small tan head. The nose quickly fills toffee and sweet chocolate. Smooth in flavour and with a big mouth feel without significant bitterness from the hops. Ends full, creamy and lush. FOOD PAIRING Should be paired with food as it could have been served at Harwoods time. A steak- and kidney pie should work well or for the slightly more modern touch serve it with a porter house steak smothered in a wild mushroom and oyster gravy.

Holmen1 (3226) - Stavanger, NORWAY - APR 21, 2015
Fra fat på Mandag i annen, Cardinal april-15: Brunsvart med fint beige skum som varer. Kaffe, sjokolade og solbær i en lett syrlig, superdejlig aroma. Naturlig nok de samme elementer i smaken, men med litt mer sødme. En delikat bitterhet både i smak og ettersmak gjør dette ølet til balansekunst verdig en linedanser. Dette ble den store fatølkvelden!
