English Porter is a moderate-strength brown beer with a restrained roasted character and bitterness. It may have a range of roasted flavours, generally without burnt qualities, and often has a chocolate-caramel-malty profile.
The ATF English Porter has a pleasant mild roasted coffee and cacao character with underlying biscuity dryness and rich dark caramel/toffee flavours. This is balanced nicely by a restrained bitterness and floral, herbal, and sweet honey hop character.
Whilst it has a full mouthfeel it finishes medium dry making it very drinkable.
Yeast is not included in the kit. We recommend using two packets of Mangrove Jack's Liberty Bell yeast.
Selecting the yeast from the dropdown box above will add one packet to your cart. Please click the + symbol beside the amount to increase this to two packets.
