COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask & Bottle conditioned; Regular. ABV varies.
Gyle 134 - 4.5%. Previously 4.1%.

A classic London beer style with a long and colourful history, Porter originated in the city around 300 years ago. While there are conflicting accounts of the exact origins of Porter, it’s clear the beer has been enjoyed by hard-working Londoners for centuries. We use traditional malts and Kentish hops in ours, and we’ve also brewed experimental versions with tea, coffee, oysters, chipotle, and New World hops.

Splitenz (331) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 30, 2014
Lovely porter from Pressure Drop. Roasted, lovely bitter and a bit tart, there’s chocolate en licorice here, as well as what I feel is a whiff of vanilla., Mine was quite lively. Impressed at the strength in flavor, considering the low ABV.
