In the old brewery we had a problem with slugs getting into the brewery. As the beer leaves a trail down the glass as you drink it like a slug, that's how the beer was named. A delicious traditional porter with a full bodied taste of chocolate, coffee, blackcurrant and black cherry with a good aroma. A near black colour with a good white head when served through a tight sparkler.
Pale malt, crystal malt, black malt; Fuggles and Goldings hops.

Bottle won in a raffle. Spice, some coffee, roasted malt and dark fruits. Smooth palate, enjoyable though not as strong-flavoured as some porters.

beeebon (478) - Cornwall, ENGLAND - MAR 5, 2015
Bottle from Tesco. Pours very dark almost black with a thick, forthy if a little loose tan head which stays in place, looks really nice. Smell is toasted malt, dark chocolate, jammy dark fruits. Taste is medium to strong bitter, toasted and mild sweetness. A little thin and watery in the mouth which is a bit of a shame but overall this is a nice Porter and one I am happy to buy again. Well worth trying!

From cask. Very dark with small head. Refreshing beer leaving a slight dry aftertaste. Pleasent drink overall.

hirigalzkar (3271) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JAN 5, 2015
Cask @ Akkurat. Deliciously drinkable porter with a moderate roastiness, small caramel sweetness, high creaminess and a medium herbal bitterness in the end.smooth.

fkoolen (1337) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - DEC 18, 2014
Bottle at home. Deep dark brown colour, beige foamy head that quickly disappears. Unpleasant iron tone in the nose. Taste has milky coffee, chocolate and blackcurrant. A little bitter. Watery body, light mouthfeel, low carbonation. Not too memorable.

mR_fr0g (13517) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 7, 2014
Cask gravity at the Watford beer festival 2014. Dark brown with ruby red highlights and a loose tan head. Aroma is dark jammy fruit, dark choc and sweet plum and fig. Flavour is strawberry and black berry jam, smooth dark choc, little bit of ash and wood. Lingering berry and chocolate malt. Palate is medium full, highish carbonation. Pretty smooth and tasty.

16.9 oz bottle at home from backlog notes. Pours dark brown to black in color with a small beige head. The aroma and flavor have dark chocolate, dark fruit, berries, not very roasted, a hint of molasses, thinner than most, flavor was better than expected, mouthfeel fell short.
