Icon Dark is a Dark Porter made with five malts including smoked barley and two noble hops. It has strong blend of coffee beans added at the end of the boil to soften and enrich the roast malts. All the flavours of roast, smoke and coffee blend together nicely with the sweetness of a traditional Porter.
In our opinion a Porter should have rich flavoursome undertones gradually discovered as you drink down the glass, but none should over power its distinctive and classic style. The Icon Dark pump clip is a gothic take on the iconic Liver Birds that oversee Liverpool.
