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.

omhper (19233) - 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.

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.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 6, 2006
Near black colored, slight red and brown tones in there too. Medium sized beige head. Smoke, chocolate, ash, oak and vanilla in aroma. Medium bodied. Flavor is also smoky with oaky and chocolaty tones, aftertaste dries with some hops and oak. For my opinion needs more body to have these barrel-oaky tones, still ok brew.
