COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular. Also available bottle conditioned.
In the old brewery we had a problem with slugs getting into the brewery. As the beer leaves a trail down the glass as you drink it like a slug, that's how the beer was named. A delicious traditional porter with a full bodied taste of chocolate, coffee, blackcurrant and black cherry with a good aroma. A near black colour with a good white head when served through a tight sparkler.
Pale malt, crystal malt, black malt; Fuggles and Goldings hops.

Mild chocolatey aroma but a whopper of a chocolatey taste. Well rounded drink with a thick taste on the palate. Deep dark red porter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sjohnh (163) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 3, 2014
On draught at the Old Windmill, Coventry. This was the second time I’d tried this - I was really pleasantly surprised the first time, and this proved it was no fluke. Really good balance between the roasted malts, chocolate and bitterness. Almost black, oily body. Very good.
