Core Beers - Black Hole Porter

Black Hole Porter

Big dark malt flavours combine with a sweet and fruity hop taste to make this strong porter exceedingly drinkable.

We’re famous for our pale and gold coloured beers at Oakham Ales but we brew some brilliant black beers as well and here’s another one.

Black Hole Porter takes a traditional style and gives it a modern, refreshingly hoppy twist. First brewed in 1996, our brewing team now age Black Hole Porter in casks to produce the exceptional beer that we know today.

Our Cask Aged beers see a lot of our brewers’ time, care and attention. The process starts with great beer being made and fermented in the usual Oakham way, then at the end of the initial fermentation we remove the tired yeast cells from the beer and introduce fresh yeast to complete the fermentation – the process known as krausening. The beer is then racked in casks and cellared like a fine wine to allow flavours and conditioning to develop. All of our cask aged beers are aged for at least 6 weeks – usually for much longer. Black Hole Porter, for example, is aged for at least 3 months.
