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.

M_Sack (620) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 21, 2014
Bottle. Dark black with no head, although it had been open for an hour when I poured it and the boys thought it was over carbonated on initial opening. Simplistic coffee, chocolate, cola and alcohol aromas. More complex flavour profile, encompassing chocolate, cherry cola and molasses leading into a roasted coffee and smoke finish. Beautiful thick, luscious mouth feel. In celebration of the birth of my mates first daughter, Avalee.

Tasting at Bruce’s Pad. Thanks to Colin. Opaque black - brown beer, good mid-tan head. Airy palate. Mildly tangy dark malts. Touch of lactose. That’s about it. A pretty dull porter.
