You can’t escape the long arm of the law, especially when you witness it’s seedy underbelly. All outward appearances point to a classic robust porter. However, it’s seething with complex rye and beechwood smoked malt additions that’ll have ya shaking in yer boots. Rich chocolate and espresso notes meld incredibly well with the earthy and spicy character of rye that negotiates a good cop/bad cop kind of shakedown. There’s also a lingering background of smooth, almost savoury smokiness providing a unique depth of flavour. Just try and talk your way out of it. What we have here is total disrespect for the law!

SRM = Standard Reference Method. This is a measurement method to calculate the colour of beer where 2 SRM is super pale yellow and 40+ SRM is pitch black.

ABV = Alcohol by Volume.
