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.

SaintMatty (7526) - Uppsala, - NOV 13, 2012
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.

theprof (1242) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - AUG 26, 2017
Bottle. Aroma is roasted malts and a little hop. Pour black with thin tan top. Flavour is emphatically malt but rather monotonous. It was the only dark beer available and I was curious.

A regular porter. Malty body, some roasted malts, a little burnt at the finish. Black pour, brown head. What you might expect.

ndburns (190) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2016
330ml bottle from a friend. Pours a dark brown with slight reddish tinges. Aroma is subdued, roast coffee, slight licorice. Flavor is strong roastiness, fruity and with a sweet finish.

2.9
Hippoman (646) - Durham, ENGLAND - JAN 31, 2016
330ml Bottle from The Bishop Langley, Durham, £3.50. Very dark brown, near black beer with a small, bubbly, light tan coloured head. The aroma is fairly enticing with creamy caramel tones and dark, roasty malts prominent. There are pleasant, sweetish, dairy milk, chocolate and, interestingly, amaretto biscuit notes to the taste, but there are also less enjoyable sharp, metallic flavours in there as well as a fizz on the palate that reduces drinkability. Oaky, whisky flavours come into play later. There’s plenty to like about this beer but also plenty that’s more than a little jarring. I expected better. Maybe it would have been better not as heavily refrigerated as it was.

3.8
mt_hall (211) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 3, 2015
Bottled. Pours a very dark brown/black with a small light brown head that soon disappeared. Chocolate, coffee, and a touch of smoke on the nose. Smooth and dry in the mouth, with a slightly smoky flavour balanced by some tartness. Good, but would like a touch more body.

3.6
jamaty (2257) - Madrid, SPAIN - AUG 31, 2015
Negra, escasa espuma beige. Aroma a café tostado. En boca es ligera, pero de sabor muy rico, realmente tostada, con notas de chocolate y café. Superbebible es una porter estupenda. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
