COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Available in 330ml bottles (bottle conditioned)
Previously known as Curious Brew Admiral Porter, from which the current version differs only by the inclusion of a small amoiunt of Goldings hops together with the Admiral.
This Porter has been brewed using crystal, chocolate, black and amber malts from floor malted Sussex barley. The bittering hop is Sussex grown Admiral with a small amount of Golding late hops. Matured with oak to give a delicate balance of sweetness and bitterness, this beer is bottle conditioned and unpasturised to preserve the extraordinary flavours. Contains barley malts.

Miksu (4972) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - JAN 6, 2007
0.33 l bottle. Ruby color with small tan head. Sweetish, woody and piney aroma with cola, coffee and ginger. Dryer flavor with coffee, charcoal, ginger and caramel. English hop flavor in the background with firm bitterness. Long and woody finish with notes of fruity hops and dark cough medicine. Weird cola-ginger element!

Mungo (2471) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - JAN 4, 2007
Bottle from Middle Farm Nr Lewes. Dark brown with some ruby. Oaky with some lighter roast components. In the mouth a fruity acidity becomes apparent. Oakiness dominates throughout. Not too bad.

Muddy brown color, small expresso head. Strange cellary, roasted malty aroma. Woody, roasted malty, dry flavor, a bit chocolaty, mouldy and sour. Interesting, but not outstanding good.

oh6gdx (20947) - Vasa, FINLAND - DEC 30, 2006
Bottled. Dark brown colour with mediumsized brown head. Aroma is sweet acidic fruits along with hops and coffee. Some wet, burnt wood is also present. Flavour is old coffee, sour and acidic dark fruit. The aftertaste is quite the same, but with chocolateish hints. A very sour and acidic porter, otherwise it could be nice...

omhper (19985) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - OCT 24, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 5, 2007 Bottled. Ruby/black, small beige head. Licorice aroma. Dryish with wild yeast sourness, roasty malt and the lightest touch of wood and old english marmelade. Finishes somewhat metallic with medium bitterness. The yeasty acidity makes gives it a touch of old ale.

voota (765) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - OCT 14, 2006
Pours almost black with a medium sized brown head. Weird aroma of melon, chocolate, compost and plum. Overcarbonated and very watery feel to the body. Flavours of smoke, plum and coffee. Thin finish, very disappointing after the IPA.

fiulijn (15371) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 11, 2006
Bottle conditioned
Dark brown color; frothy head. Mild but interesting aroma, with a clean wood character, giving a light oak bacteria sourness. Light body structure, quite common taste, based on roasted malt and caramel, but embellished with a gentle oak character and very light Bourbon vanilla. The final is mainly built on the roasted malt, quite dry.
