styles of porter and stout. At RVB we believe that the line between the two is
drawn where the dominant flavor of the brew changes from chocolate (porter) to
coffee (stout). "Floor-malted" Maris Otter malt, imported from
, is the base upon which six other malts are added provide the complex richly
malty flavor and body to this brew. (One of these malts, brown malt, is a malt
style that had been on the brink of extinction.) This recipe is based on a
porter recipe from the 1850s, but it's been updated for modern ingredients and
palates. Only English East Kent Goldings and Fuggles hops are generously used. This
