A collaboration between The Celt Experience and Brasserie St-Germain, this is a rye porter. Tried on cask at Draft House in London.
Pours a dark brown colour, with a decent if oily clarity to it. Head is a frothy mess like you often get from a cask pour: huge coarse bubbles only formed from agitation. No lacing. Body is oily but slim. Looks decent enough.
Nose suggests good things: lovely spiciness from the rye giving a little aniseed note, while the malt gives toast and darker roasted notes. Vinous characters also come through touched with a hint of additional booze. Rye is subtle, but it thins it out a little and probably contributes to that light vinous acidity. Nice.
Slight capsicum characters on the front of the palate, before some smoother malt comes through. Roast is not far behind it, adding a slight harshness. Tannins also crescendo on the back, rolling over the slight boozy spice and the thinner rye notes. Lighter in the feel than you'd expect from a cask pull, especially for one this big.
Very nice. Despite the booze, it's a very drinkable brew. The complexities to it keep drawing me back, even as it stands heavy and dangerous.
Serving type: cask
