Totty Pot is a rich, dark porter with a deeply satisfying roasted malt character and subtle hop highlights. It is brewed using the best quality Maris Otter, wheat and dark malts and hopped with a blend of English whole hops.
Rich and comforting, a real ale alternative to other black stuff.
Totty Pot is Cheddar Ales’ Winter Special, although you’ll occasionally find it at other times of the year as well.

50 cL bottle. Pours dark brown to black with a small off-white head. Aroma is dark roasted malt, slight acidic hardroasted and chocolate. Dark roasted malt flavoured, chocolota touch, bitter and lingering dark toffee sweetness. Ends rather dry and bitter.

Ungstrup (31474) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 11, 2010
Bottled. A deep red beer with a huge dark brown head. The aroma has notes of malt, caramel, roastes malt, and straw. The flavor is sweet with notes of straw, malt, and caramel, leading to a dry finish.

wheresthepath (1876) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - AUG 23, 2010
[Bottle conditioned, Dad shared it wih me - cheers!] Black with a moderate beige head. Far too fizzy for the style. Liquorice dominates with a bit of smoke & coffeee in a dry finish. Didn’t do it for me.

Cask (Pullman Bar, Helsinki)
Almost tarry roast aroma, some of those midget Humalankyla hops we put in out mild. Some floweriness too, and chocolate powder. Appearance is pure beautiful black, with a glorious spongy head that persists for the whole time. Smooth, and quite refreshing, palate. Stale coffee and tar retronasals. Beautifully rich, but gloriously mellow roasty taste. A little dry at times. Finish carries some of the roast, but brings out more of the hops. Simply a stunning porter. Excellent balance - very potent, but with no harshness anywhere.

larsga (6929) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 2, 2010
Biggish brown head. Nearly opaque black body shows faint translucent dark brown at edges. Milky roasty smoky aroma with chocolatey earthy notes. Dry-sweetish earthy fruity taste with roasty metallic notes. Mid-to-light body. Mild mouthfeel. Dry roasty earthy metallic aftertaste with burnt notes. Quite nice, but not major. (0.5l bottle, RealAle.com.)

Hermod (4980) - Vantaa, FINLAND - APR 24, 2010
Cask @Pullman Bar. Poured dark brown with a frothy beige head. Weak aroma of roasted malt. Flavour is lightly roasted malt and coffee. Aftertaste is slightly dry. Quite OK.

RichardW (1813) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - APR 11, 2010
BCA, Glenridding Mini Mart. Smooth, faintly smokey porter, with some vanilla in the aroma. No bitterness, good carbonation, juicy malt without a big roast flavour (for me). Had a lovely, lingering faintly sweet aftertaste and is a very impressive BCA.

tkrjukoff (4229) - SWEDEN - APR 5, 2010
Pours black with heavy tanned rich head. Roasted malts, sweet fruits and coffe aroma. No sweetness, dry hoppy and malty flavor with hints of grass and fruits. Flat dry in the palate and a bit watery dry-bitter finish which lasts suprisingly long.

joe19612 (2301) - camberley, Surrey, ENGLAND - JAN 3, 2010
Bottle Conditioned. Pours a very dark brown with no head at all. Plenty of roasted malt aroma, the taste is very light for a porter with loads of hops and just a slight hint of coffee.
