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.

Bottle (thanks to Daknole)(I’m not the hellbilly he is referring to)... Poured dark brown with a thick beige head. Remind me of a more English style porter. Worty sweet, cocoa, earthy and herbal hops. Low bitterness and thin palate. Oats and grains. Faint roast or toasted characters.

Poured from 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Poured a very deep brown with a frothy tight 1 finger head. The head slowly withered, aromas of caramel, and dark chocolate along with sweet malts. Lightly sweetened coffee comes to mind in much of the taste. Very smooth finish with that hint of dark chocolate . OK mouth feel but very drinkable.

Sample at Brennans - everything is a sample there! Pour is dark brown with no head. Aroma has caramel-chocolate with light brown sugar. Taste is more chocolatey, without the caramel/brown sugar "scotch ale" component being as present. A bit thin for a porter. Decent, although not enough to convince me to buy a 6.

UPDATED: NOV 18, 2013 Bottle from Montana via C.D. Thanks! Dark body with brown head, large bubbles, a bit of lacing. Quite sweet grape aroma almost, bubblegum, faint roastiness. Taste is also sweet but with a grainy malt and dark chocolate backbone. Unique porter, almost reminds me of a Foreign Stout with its sweetness. Good beer.
