Original Flag Porter

Thanks again to Mr. Dave for bringing over some beer for tasting.  This time around it was Original Flag Porter from Darwin Brewery Ltd.  I haven’t had anything from these folks before but they seem to be pretty solid in their respective homeland and their Original Flag Porter is even noted in a recent book about beer (check it out at their site).  As far as the tasting goes, this is a super light english porter with main taste of malt and chocolate… it is smooth and easy to drink and very nice for the genre.  If you aren’t in the mood for an English Porter, of course, you should avoid this one, but the use of 1825 yeast salvaged from a sunken vessel is almost worth it by itself!
