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.

ClubGonzo (4522) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAR 27, 2015
Bottle from Kris Wines, London. Pours a deep brown, near-black body with a small beige head. Nose is roasted bread, nuts, chocolate, rye bread and hints of coffee and leather. Taste is burnt toast, licorice, dark chocolate, coffee, rye and hints of caramel and nougat. Medium body and carbonation. For such a low ABV this is a really flavorful porter, with surprising complexity and even body. Impressive.

Maakun (1195) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - FEB 21, 2015
Bottle at home thanks to olliejobbins, 6.5% ABV. Black with light brown short lasting head. Coffee at first, but after a few sips a nice fresh fruit basket comes through with plums and oranges. Cocoa throughout with light marzipan, sweet red wine. Light bitter with tart fruits and some sweetness in the middle going into a long lasting roasted bitter finish. Medium bodied with thin feel and light carbonation. Very nice beer.

lusikka (6874) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 24, 2014
330 ml bottle. Pours a pitch black colour with a minimal white head. Aroma of strong rich roastiness, some burnt biscuit and heavy licorice notes. Rich flavour of roastiness, espresso, biscuit, some leathery notes and milk chocolate. Fair amount of bitterness. Light bodied with a creamy mouthfeel. Finishes nice and roasty with some burnt crisp meatiness. Quite heavy on the roastiness, yet so low on ABV. Great.
