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.

Dark brown with off-white head, some coffee, maybe a little cinnamon, a hint of metallic taste, some dash of bitterness, taste of non-sweet "julmust" (swedish cristmas softdrink), creamy but also a bit watery

Bottle. Very dark brown with a big head that stayed almost until the end. Slightly astringent aroma, but not unpleasant. Taste of chocolate and roasted malt with only a hint of the oak. Very rich taste with a small bit of cherry coming through as it warmed.

harrisoni (13559) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 31, 2006
33cl bottle at The Coastguard, St Margaret’s at Cliffe. I was surprised to find all 3 beers behind the bar. I was admiring their selection of other beers and mistook these for wines. I recognised the labels as I have done the vineyard tour. I was even more surprised at the £2.70 price tag. This is a beer with a deep brown/ruby colour and a disappearing beige head. Choc/liquorice aroma, velvety in the mouth with an odd oaky finish which I admit I don’t care for. Bit of vanilla too. Bit too carbonated and a bit too oaky. Nice try though
