Some time ago I wrote about how good Brodie’s Prime Export is, and finally I have the chance to drink and write about the regular version of this fine Porter.
Pouring a mahogany brown with just a lick of bubbles for a head, the smell is chocolate, coffee and caramel.
This is a beer relying on its malting for all its heart and soul, and it doesn’t disappoint.
You’ll find lashings of treacle tart and chocolate, coffee and honey and a hint of rum and raisin.
It’s round and chewy and satisfying, and just to top all this goodness off and to stop it becoming too sweet and sickly there’s a fine hit of hedgerow greenery, redwood resin and lemon zest from the hops, adding some much needed bitterness to the pudding warmth of the finish.
