Original Flag Porter

Beer score: 7.9
Web site: Darwin Brewery
The Darwin Brewery of England brings this fine drink to us. Of interesting note: the recipe for this porter is apparently from the 19th century, but even more interesting is the fact that the yeast used to make this brew was "salvaged from a sunken vessel in the English Channel" and the vessel was sunk in 1825, or so says the bottle. This drink has a smooth burnt-syrup flavor and a nice, frothy head. Smooth enough for regular drinking. Give it a try.
