Vulcan / Raspberry Porter 5.7% - 500ml Bottle
The porter style of beer originated in London in the early 18th century and took its name from the street and river porters who quickly became big fans. The well hopped beer made with brown malts was the was the first style to be brewed in large quantities and the porter breweries of London pioneered many technological advances such as the use of the thermometer around 1760 and hydrometer in 1770. Vulcan's Raspberry Porter is brewed in the classic English style with the addition of raspberries. It has the smooth roasty chocolate flavour you might expect from the style with perhaps a touch of liquorice. And a not-at-all-subtle great whack of raspberry. It was awarded a silver at the NZ Brewers Guild Awards a few weeks ago.
