COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular. Also available bottle conditioned.
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.

firemedic713 (169) - Palm Bay, Florida, USA - FEB 5, 2004
Chocolatey, toffee aroma. Extra-large head, foam that does not dissipate easily! Very dark ruby-brown colored. Dry, roasty, chocolatey malts dominate the flavor, with a nice burnt/hoppy, sharp, dry finish.

DanielBrown (4428) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 2, 2004
Bottle from The Offie, Leicester. Rather subtle aroma, with a medium lasting frothy, beige head, which leaves chunky lacing. Gentle introduction - smooth, then a crusty, bitter ending. Thinnish crispy mouthfeel. This has alight feel to it, but is tasty with enough interest throughout the gulp, and a nice lingering dryness.

Mungo (2470) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - JAN 21, 2004
UPDATED: JUN 21, 2005 Cask-conditioned @ Gaol House (JDW),Winchester. Fruity and roast aroma. Sweet chocolate flavour. Short bitter finish. A bit thin but tasty.(7 4 7 3 15)

A strange gassy porter,I had trouble getting on with this,alot of different flavours going on here at once that did not seem right together.

Ringo (963) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - JAN 13, 2004
A very nice porter. This is what I think of when I think of a porter. Very British tasting. A bit overpriced at 5 bucks a bottle though.

Shag (2892) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - JAN 11, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 12, 2004 A nice black appearance. Aroma is chocolate and some alcohol. Flavor is smokey with a bitter coffee and dark chocolate taste. I generally find porters to be one dimensional. But this has a little more character even for an old slug!

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - DEC 2, 2003
UPDATED: JAN 28, 2004 This stuff is like oil in the pour, somewhat thick and sludgy, with a surprisingly light mouthfeel. A lightly nutty taste, with some nice roaste malt qualities followed by a bit of chocolate coffee toffee flavors. Not a bad porter. Almost has some stout qualities, nice and roasted in the finish.

Very dark,opaque, lacing, head around edge. Earthy woody nose and taste with some chocolate. Finish is somewhat dry.

Ungstrup (35903) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 23, 2003
A dark ruby red beer with a small brown head. The aroma is very light of chocolate. The flavor is of roasted malts and chocolate which in the middle is taken over by notes of coffee combined with some sourness. It ends on a rather dry note both from hops and malts.

jimhilt (2584) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 13, 2003
Pours a one-fingered light tan head leaving a good lace, very dark ruby color. Light to medium carbonation. Roasted coffee/malty nose. Starts as a roasty coffee with a hint of malts and finishes with a slightly bitter aftertaste. Full bodied. A good porter.
