Cask; Occasional.
Strong and substantial, this dark ale is brewed using roasted malts, and is dry-hopped for a fuller flavour. Robust yet easy-drinking, this wholly traditional porter is one to savour.

Body is light to medium, malty and lightly sweetish flavor, light roasted malt and light roasted malt with light barnyard.

Bad bottle?

500ml bottle from Cellers, Billericay, drunk today. Bottle 165 of 252, signed by Head Brewer Peter Rothera. Translucent red-brown. Fairly good, light brown head, not lasting. Big, chunky sediment comes to the top of the bottle when opened, with the bubbles, and unavoidably ends up in the glass. Med carbonation. Aroma - Dark, slightly savoury-smelling (dark, bready) malt, bit choccy, fairly toasty, nutty, with some mild, berryish, planty, English-smelling hops. Slightly metallic. Taste - Lightly dry, and quite nutty. Slightly sour, savoury, acidic, dark malt. Dry, lightly roasted flavours. A hint of dark choc. Bit of sweet berry fruits & tangy, mild hop. Pretty nice & balanced flavours. Nice dark malts. Lightly dry finish, with some nice dark malt flavours lingering. Med body, with a heavy, creamy mouthfeel and some slight carbonation & tanginess on the tongue. Reminds me of Samuel Smith’s Nut Brown Ale, which isn’t a bad thing in my books. More darker malt flavours, drier, heavier and generally more porter-like though. A pretty nice, nutty, fairly dry porter. Why do i really want some dry roasted peanuts now?

Cask at CBC Clerkenwell, London. Pours clear brown with a fine beige head. Basic toasty malt character, some light dirt, faint brown bread, moderate sweetness. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Faint dryness to finish with light earthy bitterness and mellow cocoa. Simple porter.

jackl (3864) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JAN 10, 2013
Cask @ CBC Clerkenwell. The pour’s deep brown with a tiny head. The nose is light lactose, some nuts, coffee creamer and sugar. Some general roasty aromas. The taste is some vinous red berry, sweet chocolate milk, hints of lactose. Soft roasted malt. Light body, soft mouthfeel. Overall, not bad, but it lacks some bitterness that would round it out a bit.
