A delicious traditional porter with a full bodied taste of chocolate, coffee, blackcurrant and black cherry with a good aroma. A near black colour with a good white head when served through a tight sparkler.
In the original RCH brewery at the hotel, before moving to West Hewish, there was a problem with slugs getting into the brewery. You see, slugs love beer – and who can blame them?
This beer leaves a trail down the glass as you drink it, much like a slug, and so, that’s how it was named.
