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.

A descent porter. Nothing special. Oaky; woody, lumpy chocolate, caramel and cold coffee. A nice porter. A traditional porter. Mouth feel is moderate. Drinkabilitiy is good. Abv is well hidden. A good beer for a night on the town. Can’t really say much more than that. Went very well with my smoked cheese. Poured from bottle acquired from Nelsons Wines.

Cask. Looks very dark, with ruby tinges. A foamy beige head leaves a bit of lacing. Aromas of milk chocolate, hint of coffee, dark fruits. Taste- more chocolate and cocoa, dry roasty quality, liquorice, blackcurrant. Medium to full mouthfeel. Very nice.

Mild chocolatey aroma but a whopper of a chocolatey taste. Well rounded drink with a thick taste on the palate. Deep dark red porter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sjohnh (123) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 3, 2014
On draught at the Old Windmill, Coventry. This was the second time I’d tried this - I was really pleasantly surprised the first time, and this proved it was no fluke. Really good balance between the roasted malts, chocolate and bitterness. Almost black, oily body. Very good.

Brown bottle, 4.5%abv, 500ml, b@Kilpishalli K-market Finland. Beige head, foamy, some lacings, dark chocolate brown body. Scents of roasted choco malts, smoked wood, shoe leather, . Tastes black mocca choco coffee, fermented prunes, Smooth carbonator, smooth to palate, very good. Finishes with more of the choco coffee stuff, just enough dry, and some hops underneath it all. I didn’t long for any stronger abv; my thumb up for this!
