Salt Beer Factory Bowline (6.3%)

There’s a lightly metallic leather flavour that you get from a perfectly cooked piece of steak and it’s a flavour that sits right in the heart of this beer.
But don’t worry my vegetarian friends, there are no cows involved in this little can of joy, just a whole load of good brewing.
Bowline is an East India Porter, a rich dark beer heaped with chocolate and plums, coffee, treacle and honeycomb.
It’s a beer that is staked with Simcoe, Citra and Centennial hops that create a woody pithiness, all tobacco leaves and lemon pith, hedgerow greenery and damson jam.
But throughout the beer you find this lovely soft leathery meatiness that makes the drink feel hefty and satisfying, fleshy and sexy.
I need to stop writing now so that I can wallow in the goodness.
