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.

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.

ericnixon (741) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 26, 2003
Strong aroma with a good amount of honey. The palate was very weak and it had the consistancy of water. Malty flavored water. It tasted good, but it was too thin for my tastes.

This beer poured a large head that was tan, creamy and had fine sized bubbles. The hue of this beer is dark brown and the lacing was fair. The nose was that of chocolate and roasted coffee and the flavor was roasted coffee. The mouthfeel was smooth and light.

thedm (5163) - Fort Wayne, USA - JUL 9, 2003
UPDATED: DEC 2, 2003 This brew pours a very large envigorated head of creamy light brown finely sized bubbles and a opaque dark brown body. It has a mild sweet malt aroma with a strong roasted coffee flavor. Its mouthfeel is slightly tingly initially and then smoothens in the finish with a slight bite. Re-Rate 12/2/2003. A friend from England brought me another bottle so I can re-rate this now. I got a little more toffee on the aroma this time and bumped the aroma from 6 to 7. The mouthfeel seemed to contain the same bite but more flavor notes of dark malt. I also noted a good lacing that I had previously not mentioned. Also, the head seemed to last a very long time. Overall, I left the rest of my rating stand.

Cola colored style -- light brown head, a little bitter with some almond malt. Like roasted coffee with sand.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 10, 2003
Dark brown body topped by a thin tan head with some lace left behind. Slightly sweet raosty malt aroma with nutty toffee accents. Relatively weak nose. Roasty, nutty malt flavor with toffee and chocolate accents and a nutty chocolaty finish. Full bodied and smooth with a touch of dryness.
