A classic London beer style with a long and colourful history, Porter originated in the city around 300 years ago. While there are conflicting accounts of the exact origins of Porter, its clear the beer has been enjoyed by hard-working Londoners for centuries. We use traditional malts and Kentish hops in ours, and weve also brewed experimental versions with tea, coffee, oysters, chipotle, and New World hops.

Merci Mademoiselle Irina pour cette offrande rapporte de Londres, capitale mondiale du Porter! Un look de porter absolument irrprochable moffrant au premier coup doeil, toute la richesse de cet ternel chapitre de lhistoire dune peuple et de sa bire. Mousse forme par de grosses bulles de tnacit moyenne. Peu de lacings laisss par ce breuvage anglais sur mon ballon affichant firement les armoiries de cette brasserie de la colline vermontoise. Nez de caf noir et fort, dun riche cacao, de malts torrfis et bien rtis. Une pointe de fume me monte au nez, mais rien de drangeant. a sent le savoir-faire plein nez! Douce comme Mademoiselle Irina, la bire caresse mon palais amoureux de sa robe soyeuse et bienveillante. Lamertume du caf est ici llment central de la palette aromatique offerte par cette bire bien houblonne et torrfie. Longue amertume ponctue a et l par des saveurs de cacao poudreux, de rglisse noire, de fume et de grains noirs. Tout ce quon attend dun porter Anglais.
