COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An English style robust Porter brewed with imported pale, crystal, black and chocolate malts to lend the dark color with ruby highlights and dark malt flavors. This is a beer supposedly created in London in the early 18th Century to slake the thirst of the Market Porters, men who carried all the produce at markets throughout the city. The hops used are English varietals like Challenger for bitterness and a good amount of First Gold to balance all the malt notes.

Kask @ mad fox - pours dark red with 2 fingers of head. Aroma is mildly smokey with notes of peat and malt. Palate is a tad thin, taste is mildly bitter. It’s a mild porter, hard to believe its 6%.
