Travel to a time of brewer’s lore, when smoke was spelled "smoake," when dark beers held the collective hearts and mind of the people of merry old England. Believe it or not, back in the 1850s, Porter ruled the beer world, and no one brewed Porter like the brewers of London. Drawing their water from the Thames, blending old and new batches, and experimenting with new types of malt, Porter evolved throughout the years, and probably at one time held some substantial smoakiness. Arcadia’s London Porter draws on this rich historic tradition, but adds a few special twists to make it all our own. The flavor of London Porter is multi-layered, starting with a bold, pleasing sweetened coffee richness, which gives way to round and subtle smoke, much like a delicately smoked ham. Porcine sweetness is capped by a gloss of fig jam or cherry compote, fruity and complex. Faint pear and hay notes barely poke through, reminders that there are some delightful American Glacier hops under all the finery.

Ungstrup (34688) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 2, 2006
A pitch brown beer with a fast disappearing brown head. The aroma is sweet with strong notes of both chocolate and caramel, but also hints of the alcohol showing off. The flavor is sweet malty combined with notes of stored fruits, and light notes of roasted malt and alcohol.

omhper (23725) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAR 1, 2010
Bottled at Monk’s Café Wallingatan, Stockholm. Opaque black, creamy beige head. Chocolatey nose. Sweet and dense, medium to full bodied. Molasses, coffee and tar are prominent. Ink and tin hides around the corner. Sweet with clean mouthfeel and tough bitternes. More packed than balanced. The aroma is lovely, but it is quite harsh.

yngwie (16523) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 29, 2008
Bottle. Pours a really dark brown body under a beige head. Sourish and funky nose, barnyard-like, with chocolate and some roasted malt and coffee. Funky flavors too, with a light citrus touch, as well as chocolate and coffee. Medium body with a little sourish touch. Judging from the other ratings, it seems the funk shouldn’t be there, but it was, and it was nice. Really nice. (080620)

Oakes (15806) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 16, 2007
Dark brown, hazy. The aroma is coffeeish and fudgey with demerara notes, molasses and a wood hop background. Rich hoppy-roasty flavours with burnt toast accents. Finishes with an intense molasses sweetness. I’m glad I had the chance to revisit this brew.
