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.

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.

AndrewC (328) - Canterbury, Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 12, 2011
Badged as just "Curious Porter" from Waitrose. Black with the aroma of roasted malt. Some sweet roasted malt notes, hint of coco powder, quite smooth, hint of buzz on the tongue. It’s okay.

reebtogi (4301) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 9, 2012
330ml bottle pours a deep amber color with a small off-white head that leaves only a small trace of lacing on the glass. Aroma is dark fruits with hints of chocolate and roasted grains. Taste is a dark fruity and chocolate malty sweetness with some roasted grain bitterness. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. A little on the thin side for the style, but otherwise, this is quite a nice brew, tasty and easy to drink.

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.

Beer4000 (4565) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 12, 2013
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.
