Gadd’s of Ramsgate should be very proud of their 5.6% bottle conditioned porter. It was first brewed by another company in 1979 for Firkin pubs, but Gadd’s have revived the recipe and the brand. It’s heavy, chewy, slightly sour and, once the initial yeasty smell has passed, full of the roasted aromas you’d expect from a good black beer.
The only thing is, we can’t remember where or when we acquired the bottle. Did someone leave it after a party? Who knows.
