If asked, we add locally sourced honey to our fabulously soft, rounded porter. Hints of honey complement the chocolate, smokey and marmalade flavours that have made the regular brew so popular.

Wakefield Beer Festival 2015. Dark with roasted malts fused with a general sweetness, presumably from the honey, but this actual flavour is very low.

Cask @ Brewery Shades, Crawley. Very dark brown with little head. Sweet malty aroma of honey, strong coffee, slight vinegar. Initial sweet taste whacks headlong into a bitter-sour lasting through to the finish. Thinner mouthfeel than I would have liked. Still, a good porter is always welcome, even slightly unbalanced ones.

Cask-conditioned at the Seven Stars, Bristol 4/11/2013. Black in colour with a slight tan head. Dark chocolate, some dark fruits, toasty mlats and a hint of honey sweetness in the finish. Very good.

Gravity @ CPBF 2013. The pour’s brown with a small head. The nose is ash, nuts, toasted malts. Light honey. Nice sweet, earthy nose. The taste is quite jammy indeed. Plenty of red berry, honey. Some cigarette ash. A bit of vanilla and honeyed herbs. Medium body, fine carbonation. Overall, solid.
