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.

(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

Bottle. Cheers to Leighton for the generous pour. The pour’s deep brown with a medium tan head. The nose is rich milk chocolate, mild chili, some roasted coffee beans. The taste is sweet chocolate cake, lightly toasted grains, charred wood. Hints of espresso. The body’s a little bit watery. Overall, while perhaps a bit sweet, I did enjoy his beer. Approachable, nice.

Bottle shared with Jack at The Kernel - London. Pours clear brown with a creamy tan cap. Sugary brown bread nose. Medium sweet flavor, faint ashy roast, brown bread, dry earth. Light to medium bodied with fine, smooth carbonation. Dry finish, slightly ashy, with dry toast, light earthy bitterness, dried and toasted sugars. OK.

330 ml bottle. Lovely, clear, dark amber body with a nice beige head. Quite light, but nice aroma of roasted malt, dark fruit and some chocolate. Flavor is mild, dark roasted malt, dark fruit, light coffee and chocolate, liquorice and moderate bitterness. Medium body and moderate aftertaste of roasted malt and liquorice. Pleasant and easy to drink, but nothing extraordinary.
