A Rich Dark Porter brewed with 10 different malts giving a sweet roast richness that is balanced with just enough hop character. This ale has a surprising drinkability for it’s colour and abv. Don’t let the sumptuous roast malt fool you, this porter is seriously potent & has the potential to take you to another place...

Leighton (22307) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2011
Cask at the Euston Tap. Dark, clearish brown with a moderate head. Dry, ashy roasty malts on the nose. Just the faintest hints of sugar in the flavor, then lots of dry, ashy, burnt wood bitters. Light to medium bodied with fine carbonation. Dry roast finish, lingers long time. Not bad.
