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.

A strange gassy porter,I had trouble getting on with this,alot of different flavours going on here at once that did not seem right together.

A very nice porter. This is what I think of when I think of a porter. Very British tasting. A bit overpriced at 5 bucks a bottle though.

UPDATED: JAN 12, 2004 A nice black appearance. Aroma is chocolate and some alcohol. Flavor is smokey with a bitter coffee and dark chocolate taste. I generally find porters to be one dimensional. But this has a little more character even for an old slug!

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - DEC 2, 2003
UPDATED: JAN 28, 2004 This stuff is like oil in the pour, somewhat thick and sludgy, with a surprisingly light mouthfeel. A lightly nutty taste, with some nice roaste malt qualities followed by a bit of chocolate coffee toffee flavors. Not a bad porter. Almost has some stout qualities, nice and roasted in the finish.

Ungstrup (34703) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 23, 2003
A dark ruby red beer with a small brown head. The aroma is very light of chocolate. The flavor is of roasted malts and chocolate which in the middle is taken over by notes of coffee combined with some sourness. It ends on a rather dry note both from hops and malts.

Pours a one-fingered light tan head leaving a good lace, very dark ruby color. Light to medium carbonation. Roasted coffee/malty nose. Starts as a roasty coffee with a hint of malts and finishes with a slightly bitter aftertaste. Full bodied. A good porter.

Syd (921) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 13, 2003
Pint bottle poured a deep dark amber - black with a nice rocky head that sustained a long time with some lace. Good roasty - chocolaty aroma. The flavor was very good: roasty and malty. The palate was not too rich and very satisfying. Overall, I like this!

Has good Coffee and chocolate flavor. A very good porter. However it had a watery body and I was impressed that it still had good flavor.
