This is a very nice Porter brewed with coffee, blackcurrants and smoked malts.
What puts me off it is the pretentious blather on the label.
“Imagine a coffee rubbed brisket”.
I mean, I like to paint freely with words, but give me a break.
This is a very well made beer, you really don’t need to spout all this pretentious nonsense to sell it to me.
Primal Cut pours a deep Ruby red and smells of coffee and beef stock and hedgerow fruit.
Taking a swig you find blackcurrant jam and dark chocolate, honey and Bovril and espresso coffee.
There’s a good hit of pithy hazel leaves, bitter bracken and nettles from the hops, and then a twist of lemon zest while a woody fireside warmth rounds out the edges of the beer in the comforting boozy and fruity finish.
Just cut the self important blurb.
