COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Mainly available bottled. Has been seen on tap.
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.

Scipio (650) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - APR 4, 2013
Pours a dark brownish not quite black with a medium tan head. The aroma is earthy, with caramel, chocolate, nuts, and bready malts. The taste has a main focus on chocolate and nuts. It is very malty and bready, especially as the taste lingers in your mouth. I find some hints of raisin in here as well. Aftertaste consists of caramel, chocolate and bread. Medium bodied and chewy in texture. It isn’t overly carbonated. Not bad. I think I actually like this a bit more than my rating suggests. All of the impressions are rather subtle here. But I’m drinking this, the more I’m enjoying it.
