In 1000 AD, Vikings did America, calling their old Norse hood, VINLAND. In 2013 America has completely done-over our dark Viking ale... Ekim’s porter is well-and-truly USA-ified! This intensely dark and luscious brew is defined by it’s mild, fruity American ale yeast, and loads of American Centennial hops added during the boil as well as in dry-hopping, thus imparting intense spicy, citrus and piney aromas and flavours into the beer. These flavours are further enhanced and complexified by the roasty, chocolate/caramel malts, and balanced by a moderate-firm bitterness, creating a rich, smooth and well-rounded beer.

On tap at Tomahawk Bar 280614. Porter with a difference, a hint of fruitiness. Perfect beer for coolish winter day.

Great tasting porter. Thick and black as a porter should be and went down a treat. Would recommend to a friend.
