COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our secret weapon. A fulsome, winsome strong ale. A deep copper tinged brew for the true aficionado, longer fermentation and thrice hopping bring about a complex soft bitterness allied to a malt induced sweetness with the characteristic oily Fuggles hop perfume. Not just for students. Once "stuffed" savour the flavour of a glass as a digestif... True "Aroma-therapy".

Grain: Pale Malt, Roast Barley, Black Malt, Flaked Barley.
Hops: Galena, Nugget, East Kent Goldings.

Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 29, 2011
Bottle, ty for the very rare treat Garthicus! This one is really appreciated!!! Pours great with a nice dark orange / light brown and a huge frothy inviting white head. Big floral aroma, dusty dry yeast as well and a hint of alcohol. Taste - big upfront burnt malt character giving way to a ton of lingering english hops. I mean lingering, these things keep going for quite a while! Body is medium to light for the style. Taste is very good and quite unique really - I am sort of off these burnt malt sort fo these but these hops kick in and just kick your ass, in a good way. well done porterhouse, I quite enjoyed this one!
