A promising burnt toasty roasty aroma Barbecue / chargrill? and pours a quickly diminishing tanned bubbly head. Black as the ace of clubs or thereabouts. Mmm! big nutty burnt flavours on the tongue with a big bubbly champagne-like mouthfeel. Complex enough and yet not too thick or so rich so that it could be drunk plenty without too much trouble, well balanced texture. A real pleasant surprise which I would recommend.

Totty Pot is an award winning dark porter style ale from Cheddar Ales. It has a coffee and roasted malts aroma which creates a chocolate and coffee flavour, its cream tan head lasts until the last drop has gone. A really nice beer not too strong or overpowering. The subtle caramel flavours follow after the beer has settle for a while. A great porter for any dark beer lover.

500ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Attractive bottle, attractive beer. There’s a feeling of restrained, good taste design about the whole thing. There’s nothing challenging, cutting edge or bold about the Cheddar beers - simply well made, well conditioned and decent drinking beers. Yes, there’s a lack of character and style, but sometimes all one wants is a beer that does the job. This is a pleasant soft dark beer with a pleasant soft bitterness to finish it off.
