The Celt Experience Brewery 614 Annees (8.5%)

614 AnneesBrewed in collaboration with Brasserie St. Germain, 614 Annees is a Chocolate Rye Porter that smells of plum compote and port in an old leather satchel.
The leatheriness continues into the flavours and as you drink you find redwood resin, honey and toffee filled chocolate doused in coffee, and all of this carrying the background hum of well worn leather.
There’s a deep dark meatiness from the rye, and some very good rich woodland leaf mulch from the hops.
It’s a dry and brittle crunchy red rum doused hazel bark and bramble pithiness that cuts across the sticky, boozy, almost-Barley Wine sweetness that could easily become cloying if not for this sharp swipe of bitterness.
Super.
