Brouwerij de Molen
De Molen Hamer & Sikkel (Hammer & Sickle)
Brewery: Brouwerij de Molen
Format: 330ml Bottle
A very special brew compared to our regular ways. Unlike almost all our beers this is brewed completely according to the traditional way. Not with other malts, other hop varieties, special ingredients, aging on oak or other stuff. Just a regular Porter, the way it was supposed to be once.
The romantic history of the Porter will describe it as a blend of beer styles, which became popular sustenance to the street porters of London. The uglier truth is that the beer was a mix of the leftovers, and was all the common labourers could afford. Either way, the style endured.
Made with chocolate and dark crystal malts, this porter offers a smooth rich mouthfeel, with flavours of chocolate, dark fruit, coffee and a woody hint. It finishes with a soft, but sustained roasted bitterness.
