Original Flag Porter

Darwin Brewery

England

This is brewed with yeast from the year 1825, salvaged from a sunken vessel in the English Channel. Aaaaand, that's all I've got. Seriously, they didn't have any modern yeast? They were out of ideas on how to brew a beer? OK, a little harsh. This was a decent Porter, nice roasted malt flavor, little hint of chocolate, overall a good cold weather beer. And, with the novelty of 180 year old yeast. Hence the outrageous price for a 12 oz bottle ($3.00).
