Two restless and curious creators, our father and son Brewers Tom and Jacob have always drawn their inspiration from a variety of sources, but most notably have sought to pay homage to the vast and flavourful variety of international cuisine. After a conversation about the delicious flavours of jerk chicken, the pair decided to explore elements that were representative of Jamaica. Using Scotch bonnet peppers from Tom’s garden to emulate the spice of jerk and curry dishes, local coffee as a nod to the popularity of Blue Mountain Coffee, and a hint of mango to represent the tropical climate of Jamaica, our Spiced Porter was born.
Jamaican Fire bursts with flavour and aromatics. Roasted espresso with a hint of spice and molasses on the nose indicate the depth of flavours to come. With an initially delicate citrusy note that borders on sweet, enjoy as the smooth and savoury mouthfeel of this 6.8% porter builds and let your taste-buds ignite with gentle heat from the Scotch bonnets. Warrior and Golding hops add delicate aromatics and bitterness that complements the spice while Carafa III, Double Roasted Crystal, and Roasted Barley amplify the roasted coffee tones.
