Beer of the weekend, definitely the Ellands 1872 Porter

At 6.5% I stupidly left this until the last drink of Friday night, by Saturday it had all been consumed so I’ve not had chance to give it another go and review it properly. What I can say is that it was particularly memorable!

Apparently there is more in the cellar so I’ll check it out then and feedback, in the meantime, check here for details:

Official tasting notes: Rich, complex and dark Porter from an original 1872 recipe, with an old port nose, and coffee and bitter chocolate flavours on the palate.

GOLD MEDAL in its class at the International Brewing Awards, Dark Milds, Stouts & Porters Competition 2004.
SUPREME CHAMPION at the CAMRA National Winter Ales Festival, January 2010

  1. This is a great beer! I remember having it at a festival in London a few months before it won all the awards it’s been festooned with and I loved it. I could drink one right now actually…

  2. Agree Mark, definitely deserves it’s accolades, hopefully I won’t have to wait too long before the next batch is ready and on the bar

I'd love to hear what you think, please don't forget to comment, thanks
