Brewed to an English recipe dating from 1750, the Fuggles and Sorachi Ace hops plus Carafa and Caramel malts give this robust porter a huge fudge flavour.
Look: Just off-black and a little cloudy with a creamy beige head and small carbonation.
Aroma: Loads of fudge sweetness backed up with black coffee and dark chocolate.
Taste: Surprisingly hoppy with great complexity. More coffee, fudge and chocolate but with plenty of fruit, vanilla and caramel notes.
Verdict: A sturdy beast of a porter, as good as they come.
