COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our award winning dark ale which is an original London style, lighter in body than a stout but with the same alcohol content. Brewed with pale, crystal, chocolate and black malts to create a creamy, smooth, roasted, slightly chocolate tasting ale with a bit of hoppiness in the finish. The name comes from the fact that after brewing, the mash is given to a local farmer and there can't be anything better than spent grain from brewing for fattening up a pig.

Bottle poured into a porter glass presented dark amber, and a very persistent dark tan head. Aroma is metal, yeast, and bubblegum and the taste follows with an unpleasant sour that is lingering and clingy. The body is thin for a porter, and flat, but still finds a way to be creamy on my tongue. Drinking the rest of this glass will not happen. It’s finish is more pleasant than the first swallow, but getting through the initial shock of flavor to get to a more enjoyable end is not worth it.

"Pretty average across the board. Medium roast, coffee, cjocolate, hop bitterness. Light to medium bodied. Nothing special but not bad either.

[Bottle] Very dark brown in color. Small tan head on top. Nose includes chocolate, roasted malts and hints of anise. Roasted malt backbone with lighter flavors of vanilla, wood ash, earthy hops, pumpernickel bread and tobacco. Slick mouthfeel. Decent.

exeter (535) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 21, 2014
Poured from 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Poured a very deep brown with a frothy tight 1 finger head. The head slowly withered, aromas of caramel, and dark chocolate along with sweet malts. Lightly sweetened coffee comes to mind in much of the taste. Very smooth finish with that hint of dark chocolate . OK mouth feel but very drinkable.

Sample at Brennans - everything is a sample there! Pour is dark brown with no head. Aroma has caramel-chocolate with light brown sugar. Taste is more chocolatey, without the caramel/brown sugar "scotch ale" component being as present. A bit thin for a porter. Decent, although not enough to convince me to buy a 6.

UPDATED: NOV 18, 2013 Bottle from Montana via C.D. Thanks! Dark body with brown head, large bubbles, a bit of lacing. Quite sweet grape aroma almost, bubblegum, faint roastiness. Taste is also sweet but with a grainy malt and dark chocolate backbone. Unique porter, almost reminds me of a Foreign Stout with its sweetness. Good beer.
