First brewed shortly after the foundation of the brewery, OTT is a very rich, dark ale. We use 4 different malt styles - pale, crystal, chocolate and malted wheat - each of which has a unique character. Local Fuggles hops added at various stages during the boil enhances the beer’s depth. Old Tongham Tasty is named after the village where we brew in a farm on the edge of the Surrey Hills. Its complexity drinks ’like a festival of different tastes on the tongue’ - at least that’s how it was described after a lengthy sampling session.

RichardGretton (4471) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 2, 2006
Bottle. Almost black beer with a gentle head. The aroma is milky and chocolatey and the flavour is quite vinous, dry, bitter and slighlty roasted. Overall a nice beer.

thebeertourist (5155) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 11, 2007
Bottle. Dark brown with a small light brown head. Roasted malts, fruits, some sourness and coffee aroma. Berries, some yoghurty sourness meeting coffee and burnt malts flavours. Relatively thin texture. Original, though I am not 100% convinced that the sour fruits marry that well with the roasted malts in this beer.

The bottle conditioned version: Deep red. Musty, woody and fruity aromas. Slightly solvent. Oily mouth feel with a touch of welcome sourness amongst the malty dark fruit flavours. The alcohol is obvious and some hops come from nowhere to linger nicely. There are several good seperate elements of this but whether they come together to form one really good beer may depend on taste. I think it’s fairly good.
