COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
When the temperature drops, rain beats down and wind swirls around dark alleys, we seek out the comfort of the local tavern. Swathed in warm dim light, your hands wrapped around a rich, chocolaty English Porter, you can let your mind drift and heart beat slow. Mr Obadiah Rye Porter is a respectful nod to aged ales and our brewing forebears who were inspired to put pen (or quill) to paper. Expect spice from the malted rye, dark, nutty notes and a clean finish worth writing home about...

maneliquor (3104) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 6, 2013
Growler from Mane Liquor. Pours dark brown with some ruby edges. A small beige head with good head retention. Nose shows heavy roast and nutty tones - almost soy like. Touch of vanilla and spice there too. Taste shows peppery spice, heavy nutty notes - hazelnuts, light vanilla and balanced mocha tones. Very sessionable and a good balance o flavour there. Works surprisingly well. Definitely one of Creatures better single batches
