Priory Porter 4.6% is dark and full bodied, brewed with a blend of 5 grains including chocolate and crystal malts to create the depth of colour. Flaked barley delivers a velvety mouthfeel, a fullness of body. The darker grains lend a malty complexity to the porter. It’s a single hop varietal porter, with Herefordshire Challenger introduced early in the boil.
The Priory in question is Leominster Priory in the town where our brewery is based and yes, the image does represent the real Priory windows. Perhaps Priory Porter pleases priests post prandially?
Friday 1st March 2019 was the launch of Priory Porter at the March monthly Tasting Day where another deeply dark, divine beer was on offer in the form of Black Swan.
