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 (29170) - 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.

Cask @ Bishop’s Arms Malmö. Black/ dark brown colour. Small tan head. Roasted malt and chocolate in the aroma. Taste is roasted malt, coffee and chocolate. It has more stout taste to me than porter taste. But i like it.
