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.

bruin/zwart met schuimige licht kaki kraag. aroma van geroosterde mouten, chocolade en veel koffie. smaken zijn chocolade en wederom een enorme koffie op een lichte body die overigens enorm dun en zelfs waterig van textuur is. In plaats van een bak koffie, neem dit, nee ’t is het niet

Cask. Looks very dark, with ruby tinges. A foamy beige head leaves a bit of lacing. Aromas of milk chocolate, hint of coffee, dark fruits. Taste- more chocolate and cocoa, dry roasty quality, liquorice, blackcurrant. Medium to full mouthfeel. Very nice.

Mild chocolatey aroma but a whopper of a chocolatey taste. Well rounded drink with a thick taste on the palate. Deep dark red porter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On draught at the Old Windmill, Coventry. This was the second time I’d tried this - I was really pleasantly surprised the first time, and this proved it was no fluke. Really good balance between the roasted malts, chocolate and bitterness. Almost black, oily body. Very good.
