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.

Imaena (1802) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 3, 2013
Bottle as an Easter gift Dunbar Scotland 2009. This is a thin roasty porter that does not really push the envelope for the style. It is a solid representation though and has an awesome name

ExpendableHero (745) - Florida, USA - DEC 21, 2012
Black beer with a thin, off-white head. Aromas of faint smoke, and coffee. Tastes of smoky notes, watery/flat coffee, some coal, black licorice. Medium bodied, with an oily mouth feel. Bitter, chalky finish. Very dry brew, unoffensive in flavor, but not very memorable. Decent beer.

stravale (2062) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - DEC 9, 2012
Bottle from Tomlinson’s, Inverness 091212
Dark brown, frothy tan head with reasonable lacing
Aroma - Soft roasted malts, touch of coffee grounds, little woody
Taste - Roasted malts, dark caramel toffee malts, some burnt crust, bit of charcoal, dab of bitter chocolate, some coffee grounds, touch of dark fruity malt in the background
Palate - Soft carb, medium body, fairly smooth texture. Finish fairly dry, burnt roast, woody, some lingering burnt roast and dark coffee grounds, tad rough
Overall - Finish is rather overburnt which spoils the main flavour . I do remember this being good on cask so this was a bit disappointing
