What is Black Lion Porter?
One on my drummers always drank a famous Irish stout and nothing else, so I made Black Lion Porter to broaden his horizons. I really like the complex warm flavours of old London Porters but I wanted to avoid a dry burnt which so many feature.
To achieve this I used a high mashing temperature with some amazing roasted barley varieties to produce a rich sweet wort. Balancing this sweetness took a lot of noble English hops! Usually I hop really late, but in Black Lion Porter they are added early to create a nice coffee end note. Richness is nothing without smoothness, so a slow, low fermenting yeast was used with a cold, long conditioning time.
