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.

Creamy head which lasts well. Roast malt and coffee on the nose. Full flavoured, good roast and malt balance with balanced bitterness. Lovely dark red brown colour. Finish is long and leaves a pleasant roast bitterness.
