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.

Beerenberger (1377) - Fischer, Texas, USA - NOV 10, 2012
Aroma has a subtle sweet quality. Pours a black color with a tan head. Tastes of bitter coffee which carries through into the aftertaste. Light bodied with minimal carbonation. Overall, while enjoyable, I would like to have a fuller bodied brew.

alexsdad06 (5336) - 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.
