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. 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.

330ml Bottle - Very dark brown, almost black in colour. Coffee, roasted malt, dried fruit and plain chocolate in the aroma. Roasted, chocolatey and malty taste with notes of coffee, liquorice and roasted malt standing out. Not bad at all.

Bottle from Selfridges. Pours dark brown with a tinge of red in it. Single finger off white head to things. Aroma of malt, coffee, dark fruits and even a touch of alcohol. Initial taste of sweetness, coffee, vanilla, roasted malts. Nice fizz too.

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.
