Pete Drinks: Three B's Knocker Up


Name: Three B's Brewery Knocker Up Porter

ABV: 4.8%

Bottled/ Draft: Bottled, conditioned

Colour: Deep, deep ruby

Head: Lingers like sea foam

Mouthfeel: Big, firm body

Taste: Deep roasted malt, almost syrupy.

Comment: This is a big headed beer - in a good way. I've got some small experience of pouring beer out of bottles, but even being careful I ended up with something like an 80% head in the glass! It's not so wildly enthusiastic that it escapes the bottle, and with some patience it settles down and leaves a wonderful looking foam cap.

Lots of rich chocolate malt on the nose and thick, sweet chocolaty malt on the tongue with a little subtle hoppiness. It's a wonderful porter with the sort of deep, rich sweetness that I love - surprisingly deep for something which is only 4.8%.

Very taste, very easy drinking, and very regrettable that I only bought one bottle.
