COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Five specialty malts including amber, chocolate and crystal, combine with unmalted roasted barley, to give Penny Porter a deep black appearance and an even deeper robust body. A host of complex aromas accompany this beautiful ale including cocoa and dark bitter chocolate, which further compliment the velvety texture and full mouth feel, achieved by mashing in at slightly higher temperatures. A perfect partner to a briney oyster and known as the fisherman’s best friend, Penny Porter drank well on the old wharves of London town and now at the Green Beacon!

On tap at The Archive. Pours almost black with a thick tan head that fades quickly, mild chocolate aroma, thick with rich roasted coffee and bitter chocolate flavours. A very nice beer that I’d gladly drink again.
