Sir Thomas Porter

4.9% ABV/ 24 IBU
Our salute to former NSW Governor Sir Thomas Macdougall Brisbane – the man with the biggest passage (of water) on the Central coast named after him. While a man of faith, we believe our porter brewed in the traditional English style would have surely tempted. a dark, almost opaque ale with ruby highlights, this ale (like all our core beers), has been brewed using all Australian grains – 5 varieties in total! Without a doubt this ale is centred around the roasted malt flavours with a perfect dose of chocolate and coffee flavours on offer too. Caramalt and crystal have been used to counter the dryness of the roasted grain, leaving a well balanced dark beer that has been subtly hopped – don’t expect any hop flavours here!
Amazing with oysters! Roasted maltiness works well with tomato-based pasta and pizzas, grilled meat and onions. Did we mention oysters?
