COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle Conditioned, special;
Rich ruby porter. "Postmanís Knock is a beer offering an intelligent blend of complex ingredients, the rich brown beer with a smooth fine head has a very chocolately character. The combination of subtle flavour notes of vanilla, treacle and roast malt gives an initial rich sweetness leading to a velvety chocolate finish."
