An Imperial Russian Porter with Ale yeast, herbs and spices and a shed load of malts, Ash is another example of Celt’s superb brewing.
The aroma is well varnished wood with black cherries smeared on it, and the beer sits deep and dense in my glass with a big fat creamy head.
The malting here is burned wholemeal toast, oak sideboards, treacle toffee burned on a bonfire and a damson and mushroom meatiness.
Over this there’s a bunch of woodland leaf litter, red and gold crunchy leafiness, all spice coated, sherbet laced, bitter and dry grapefruit skin loveliness that leads to a soft and warm and satisfyingly sticky end.
