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.

Bottled 07/09/12. A cola black coloured beer with a dissipating grey head. A fairly roasty porter in the nose with hints of sweet fruit. There is coffee in the mouth with more fruitiness, Pretty nice.

tfredvik (1614) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 20, 2013
Dark brown body, light brown head. The head is long-lived and ends up as a fully lasting, thin layer. Strong aroma with notes of dark roasted coffee, almost burnt, with dry ashy notes and hints of smoke. In the strong flavours I also get dark fruits and berries. Light to moderate sweet taste with a long, moderate bitter finish. Medium body, dry texture, soft carbonation. Very dark roasted for the style, but nonetheless a delicious brew.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 17, 2006
(Bottle 33 cl) Pours a clear, reddish brown with a rough, beige head. Vinous aroma. Medium body with a light tartness and oaky, vinous notes. Unusual with the oak accents in a beer this light in alcohol, but actually very pleasant. 150906
