When the temperature drops, rain beats down and wind swirls around dark alleys, we seek out the comfort of the local tavern. Swathed in warm dim light, your hands wrapped around a rich, chocolaty English Porter, you can let your mind drift and heart beat slow. Mr Obadiah Rye Porter is a respectful nod to aged ales and our brewing forebears who were inspired to put pen (or quill) to paper. Expect spice from the malted rye, dark, nutty notes and a clean finish worth writing home about...

Bottle shared during the satellite Travlr 10K tasting at CBC Clerkenwell - London. Pours rich brown with a frothy, tan head. Rich brown bread and chocolate in the aroma. Medium sweet flavor with subtle roast character, toasted brown bread, pleasant cocoa. Medium bodied with fine carbonation and a lightly creamy mouthfeel. Sweet finish with mellow ripening berries and milk chocolate. Nice enough.

Bottle at Frenchmans Cap with James and James. Pours dark into our plastic mugs, with a nice tan head. The aroma is an abundance of chocolate, coffee, and dark malts. The flavour is bitter chocolate, a little fruity (prunes, plum) and a little spicy. Coffee. Lovely.
