The local beer with an international reputation! This rich, satisfying porter has won many an award and has the honour of being included in Roger Protz's acclaimed guide, '300 Beers to Try Before You Die'. The drink itself has an intense aroma of roasted grain, pungent hop resins and bitter chocolate. Dark dried and vinous fruits coat the palate, balanced by roasted malt and peppery hops. The finish is long, dry, bitter and satisfying. A beer to be taken most seriously!
