COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Style: Porter
Recipe: Original
ABV: 6.1%, 7.0% (ABV may vary)
Our Original Porter is brewed with seven different malts, including brown malt, chocolate malt and crystal malts. This results in a rich aroma and flavour that is backed up by a light dry-hopping.

olio (6394) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 10, 2014
33 cl bottle.
Pours black color with a thick off-white head. Dry roastiness and rye on the nose, dark malts, some moderate hop notes also. Very rich and full, creamy chocolaty palate, some bready malts and caramel on the flavor, cocoa powder and subtle hops on the finish. Extremely pleasant with a rich flavor palette. One of the best Porters I’ve had in a while.
