Historically the term used to describe a porter blended from a variety of ales, entire butt uses 14 different malts and 3 hops to recreate this forgotten style of porter. The beer is black/brown with a crisp white head and is distinctly vinuous. It has little hop character as essentially the flavour is derived from the malts. Malts used: pale Maris Otter, lager, wheat, pale crystal, dark crystal, dark chocolate, pale chocolate, black, roasted barley, caramalt, torrified wheat, amber malt, brown malt and malted oats.

A pretty good porter, but light than I was expecting. Has some roasted appeal, but the sweetness, some caramel and chocolate, dominates.

alexsdad06 (9140) - Ohio, USA - JUN 28, 2014
Bottle from backlog notes 07. Pours a dark cola brown color with a small beige head. The aroma and flavor have roasted malt, bakers chocolate, some dark fruit character that has a slight tart note, thin compared to most porters, but the flavor is still there, this was one of the first English porters I had and not something I would revisit.

Rune (11369) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUN 1, 2014
500ml bottle, 4.5 % abv, thanks to Finn for sharing. Tightly packed fawn-coloured head with fair retention. Clear rosewood coloured body. Attractive taste of bacon and dark malts. Chocolate malts to the fore of the taste profile with hints of bacon. Mid-dry, malt bitterness to the ending. Medium bodied. Decent version of the style (at Finns, Tromsø 27.05.2014).

Flaske 0,5l fra Kilpishalli. Delt med Rune under rateseanse på Nerstranda 27 Mai 14. Ekstremt mørk amber. Lavt, litt farget skum. OK lacing. God aroma & smak av bacon, røyk & røstet malt. Veldig bra ut fra styrken.
