COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Shallow Grave Porter is dark as night, perfect for a cool evening out in the woods. This a big, dark ale with a complex and rich chocolate and caramel malt character followed by a touch of warmth and light malt sweetness, leaving you ready for more after each shovelful. You will love this so much you won’t have time to dig a six-footer, so make it a Shallow Grave. We’re sure you’ll dig it.

DeliriumT (368) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - OCT 3, 2012
Pours inky black. Smells of melted bitter chocolate. Tastes impossibly sweet on the first sip and then the rest of the flavours (other than milk chocolate) make their way through. Very chocolatey porter

mkel07 (3739) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - SEP 13, 2012
650ml bottle. Pours as black as a deep grave and carries a bubbling foam head. There are hints of vanilla, aniseed and licorice in the aroma. Full flavoured and thick and rich in the mouth with a nice long aftertaste. Probably the best porter I have had.

Dark brown color with a khaki head. Nice chocolate aroma, plenty of cocoa, and some moderate roast qualities. Plenty of toasted malt and toffee sweetness, maybe a little vanilla. The sweetness on the palate is very well pronounced. Tons of toffee, caramel, and toasted malt. Cocoa, chocolate, and a light bitterness. Mild to moderate roast and just a hint of coffee.
