This has been a huge success. I consistently get ~40 points in BJCP comps. It is balanced, with distinct chocolate and coffee notes, not roasty, with just enough bittering to keep things in balance. Most of all, it is my wife’s (and co-brewer) favorite beer. In short, a great session beer.

All the malt is British except the Melanoiden Malt. It was that touch of Melanoiden Malt that took this recipe to the next level.

The name is from a locale in Dickens' last novel, "Our Mutual Friend." The Six Jolly Fellowship Porters Pub is where a lot of the action takes place. It is described as

"a tavern of a dropsical appearance, [which] had long settled down into a state of hale infirmity. In its whole constitution it had not a straight floor, and hardly a straight line; but it had outlasted, and clearly would yet outlast, many a better-trimmed building, many a sprucer public- house."
