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.

Ungstrup (33459) - 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!
