Priory Porter 4.6% is a dark, full bodied velvety porter, 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.  It’s hard to give the right description to the deep, intense colour, which we have titled “almost black”.  It’s a very deep ruby brown colour.  The complex blend of darker grains creates wonderful malty aroma note.  There are some background spice notes from the Challenger hops.

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?
