It would have been nice to call this one Entire Butt but that’s another story. The original design for this porter involved a scoundrel hanging from a noose on Combe Gibbet. The first unknowing landlord ordered the beer which just happened to coincide with a wake in his pub. Unfortunately the poor chap had hung himself, so an alternative was sought. Some time earlier a bloke that did paintings on the back of leather jackets had created the ‘jester with attitude’ which at the time we really liked but it didn’t fit in with the other brewery logo but after Barbus Barbus what the hell!
