I’m not one for saying that something is perfect, but I’m finding it very hard to fault this beer.
From its inky black body and its frothy cappuccino head, its India rubber, prune and linseed oil aroma to its deep thick dark bitter chocolate, espresso, cardboard box, hazel praline and honey waffle malt, Export Porter 1750 is a great big beautiful monster.
Its hops add crunchy red maple syrup drenched woodland leaves, artichoke and marmalade, and there’s a big boozy heart driving everything along and leading you crashing head first into the brown sugar syrup and bone dry crunch of the finish.
This comes very close.
