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.

Pretty good porter. A lot of other flavors than you’d expect, especially a notable vanilla aftertaste. Lighter than the usual porter.

GT2 (8742) - San Diego County, California, USA - MAY 9, 2013
Tap at ppg. Pours clear, dark ruby. Fizzing out beige foam. Spotty lace. Big cherry cough syrup nose, black cherry soda, hints of vanilla. Taste is very medicinal, suddy, almost like black cherry soda gone wrong with a hefty dose of Robitusson.
