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.

Bottle, Christmas gift from Alan. Black body with a medium beige head that holds well. Excellent lacing. Aroma of smoked wood, coffee and tobacco. Flavour of fig, nuts, earth, black coffee and a zip of sharp plum. Medium body with a sticky mouthfeel. Soft carbonation. A smooth, tasty English Porter - I was pleasantly surprised by this one.

Very smoky porter pouring near black with a nice head. On tap in Bath. Plenty of body for an English beer.

The aroma is roasty, chocolate. The appearance is deep brown, slightly translucent, off-white head. The flavor is roasty, brown sugar, cocoa powder. The finish is roast, spicy hops. Medium in body, a tad thin. Thin and watery for this style, not a strong r sweet flavor profile, but then maybe I’m not used to true English porters. Drinkable.

Super! Dark thick and luscious, flavours of coffee, chocolate, vanilla and roasted hazelnuts. Complicated, deep and satisfying.

Grzesiek79 (3114) - Radom, POLAND - AUG 1, 2013
Dobre wrazenie pozostawia ten porter o ciemnym i intensywnie czarnym kolorze. Piana gigantyczna puszysta i dobrze uformowana. Osad na dnie calkiem spory. W smaku sporo czekolady, ciut karmelu i chmielowy wytrawny finisz. Elegandzko skomponowane.

Dark pour almost black. Off white head. Didn't get much to taste due to my father's inability to get anywhere near dividing a bottle in half. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
