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.

Big mocha head atop a stoutish black body. Aroma is sweet, coffee, roasty, caramel, and fairly rich. Taste is coffee bitter, as smokey as it is than roasty, and mildly sweet. Mouthfeel is slightly watery, especially given the flavors involved, but I suppose that's to be expected with a porter that seems like it should be a stout.

Dark plainly hopped beer both in flavour and aroma. Hardly a very good porter.

Bottle. Very dark brown with a creamy foam head. The nose is a little dusty in that way that English beers often seem to mess it up. A disappointing beer, especially for the price. The flavor is musty, a roast aftertaste, but not pleasant to drink. A little like cleaning fluid.

This is a nice porter, though the incredibly frothy head is a bit much. The beer itself is a pretty dark brown color, as a porter should be. Its taste is smoky and somewhat coffee-like. Quite good, but not one of my favorites.

Great dark color, big head is a bit to bubbly. Taste is very balanced with no predominate flavor. Good finish. Very good but just not great. Paid $4.49 at Sam’s in Chicago

Huge foamy pour.Roasted nose with an acidy smell to it. Dark roasted flavor with a hint of oak. Has some acidity to it that is just throwing things off.Think George Gale makes a porter

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - DEC 8, 2002
Probably the only ’bottled conditined’ porter that i’ve ever encountered. Strong carbonation. Malts are medium, with neither coffee nor chocolate taking over. quality.

BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - DEC 5, 2002
Dark brown with immense initial foaminess. Damp malty aroma, chocolaty, rich cabernet fruitiness with woody grainy dryness. Roasted coffee and chocolate flavor with distinctive oaky dryness. Sherry like fruitiness in the middle and a touch of Baileys alcohol towards the end. Dry but fruity in the aftertaste. Exceptional flavor, one of the best imported English ales I’ve had in a while.

estoppel (1028) - Buffalo, New York, USA - NOV 15, 2002
Huge tan head, dark reddish-brown body, mild chocolate nose. Dry coffee flavor, almost like drinking cooled espresso. A hint of sweetness emerges as it warms, with a concomitant chocolate note. Still very dry. A decent beer, but nothing spectacular here.
