You might remember a few months back when the guys and gals at Goat did something of an in-house stock clearance and compiled a beer that utilised much of the grain and hops they had lying around. Seems it's that time again, with the aforementioned "Bubble 'n' Squeak" concept returning with a wintry twist. The result is the brewery's first ever porter, one which features six malts: Australian Ale, UK Marris Otter, German Rye malt, UK Crystal, UK Chocolate, and German Chocolate Wheat and is lightly hopped with American Willamette. If that wasn't enough, they then fermented it with French Oak chips. We're told to expect "a medium palate, with soft chocolate and roasty characters" in a beer that "finishes with a delicate oaky sweetness".
