Yes, we love our IPAs but when the British winter sets in we love our dark beers too. Inspired by London’s Industrial Revolution when Smog filled the air and the Porter was the beer of the people. This 5.4% Porter is an original home brew recipe (and one of the first beers to be served at Dukes) using 9 different malts including a good chunk of smoked ‘Rauchmaltz’ from Bamberg, Germany. All of the big flavour hits of molasses, smoked hickory wood, raisins, and caramel are balanced with the resinous US hop Chinook. This cuts the sweetness and lets the smokey aromas fly, reminiscent of the smokestacks of industrial London.
