"Inspired by the porter recipes of the 1850s that were sent to India, with modern hopping regimes. Hops change from batch to batch. Notes of chocolate, coffee, tobacco, leather. ABV always around 6%."
"The Export India Porter relates to porter in similar manner to the way the IPA relates to the Pale Ale: they added more hops. We've taken Barclay Perkins recipe from 1855, but changed the hops to Columbus and Cascade (American varieties) and hopped it in the same way that we hop our IPAs. The result is a dark brown beer that smells of cocoa, roses, and some orange. The body is quite light, and it is carbonated more highly than usual for a porter to make it more refreshing. It's quite light in texture and tastes of Turkish delight dusted with cocoa powder chocolate, rose water and fruit. Dry finish."
