A beer to fit tightly within our ethos at Orbit Beers, paying homage to European brewing heritage and traditions. Named after the runoff area on vinyl records, with a nod to Seven (named for the 7” single) our Double Brown Stout which we have brewed in previous winters at Orbit.
Our multi-award-winning Dead Wax is our take on a classic London Porter. Based on the late nineteenth-century interpretation of the style. Complex rich malt, with aromas of chocolate, coffee, caramel and malty biscuit. More chocolate, coffee and black treacle on the palate. Rich full body, robust bitterness and a subtle earthy/lemony hop character combine to create a distinctively dry and drinkable dark ruby coloured beer.
Great Taste*** 2022 winner:
"Great looking with attractive differentiation between the creamy head and dark body. This porter delivers both on the nose and the flavour. Rich and oozing quality, the flavours dance from marmalade to chocolate and sweet bitterness leaving a satisfyingly long and gentle finish. Good for pairing with meats and stews and more."
"This deep, dark, sultry porter has a lovely creamy head and is very well conditioned. There is liquorice, vanilla and caramel on the nose. On tasting those aromas burst into flavours, swirling around the mouth, dancing on the palate. It is not too sweet and leads to a glorious bitter finale. All the favours linger long on the palate after swallowing, making it a joy to imbibe. This is a glorious drinking experience."
