Default Porter

As some members will remember a few months ago i stopped drinking lager and i started working my way through the beers at Bargain Booze (3 for £5) i have found one that i am really impressed with and its the last thing i thought i would like when i poured it and saw the colour.

BLACK WYCH spellbinding porter ,
The Black Wych has cast her spell , start with a measure of
alluring rich dark malt & allow the bitterness to creep in.
This silkily smooth porter is a force to be reckoned with.

I've not tried it although I am partial to a porter, I'll have to try and track one down.
Thinking of brewing a porter at the end of summer as a Autumn/Wintery beer, I need to do some research.

If you like stout, you'll like porter. Historically stout was a stronger version of a porter

That's a great beer that.

I was in Devon over the weekend and managed to get 4 bottles of one of my fave porters; Exmoor Beast, in Tesco. Hard to get hold of in South Wales.

I like a Porter as well as stouts. Drinking my take on 'Brixton Porter' at present,not bad if i do say so myself
Porters were the staple of,errrr, the Porters around the London markets i believe in ages past.
