Gunboat Smith is a tribute not only to one of the original Head Brewers but also to the strong black porter style of beer on which Old Truman’s success was built. This is our take on the old recipe using modern techniques and hops. Deception in a glass, this beer pours black as night but has the punch of US IPA hops. The dark roasted malts bring chocolate and coffee, as you'd expect from a Porter, but the combination of American hops; Bravo and Columbus; give an underlying piney resinous hit.


Dark roasted malts, and bold US hops. It depends on what you like but maybe one of these will float your boat?
