COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our award winning dark ale which is an original London style, lighter in body than a stout but with the same alcohol content. Brewed with pale, crystal, chocolate and black malts to create a creamy, smooth, roasted, slightly chocolate tasting ale with a bit of hoppiness in the finish. The name comes from the fact that after brewing, the mash is given to a local farmer and there can't be anything better than spent grain from brewing for fattening up a pig.

Well balanced porter that can be liked by many. Great colour, aroma and overall taste. Could use some more head to add some creamy texture. Nice dark beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bulldogops (1039) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 3, 2013
8 oz pour at Beer Revolution. Created a great back-n-forth with the waitress by calmly ordering a Pig’s Ass. Hot women like that, right? This porcine buttocks did not disappoint. Opaque dark pour with a bubbly tan foam. Aroma is toffee, coffee, and dates. Mild-medium carbonation, medium bodied. Taste is quite complex, lots of roast malt character but tempered with fruity sweetness (raisin, currant). Awesome brew.
