The Porter originated on the streets of London. Its name was born from the hard working river and street porters of the past 250 years. It was a strong and robust beer that fuelled the labourers of the capital. Lambeth Walk is a dark porter with a rich and opaque appearance. It has a dominant nose with aromas of toasted cocoa and dark malts. There are initial dark berry notions with subtle roasted hazelnut flavours, finishing on a surprisingly refreshing floral hop. Here’s one for the hard worker who still finds time for a good old knee’s up ‘Doin’ the Lambeth Walk’oii!?

Poured deep dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma of roast malt, cocoa and dark fruit. Medium body, flavour as the aroma, light vanilla and caramel. OK.

Sigmund (5309) - Tau, NORWAY - DEC 16, 2014
330 ml bottle, from the Norwegian importer. ABV is 5.1%. Black colour, no head nor any carbonation. Roasty dryish aroma with notes of wood and ashes. Sourish flavour with dry roasty notes, again wood and ashes. The lack of carbonation is an obvious fault, but I don’t think this would have been a great beer even with carbonation.

teorn88 (2768) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 8, 2014
Backlog rating. 33cl bottle from Oddbins London Bridge, London. It pours a brown color with a small beige head. Aroma is light roasted malt, coffee beans, cocoa powder, vanilla and toffee. Taste is medium sweet and medium roasty and bitter, with notes of coffee beans, wood, grains, vanilla, light citrus tang in the finish. Finishes a bit dry and astringent. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Overall, nice porter, could use more body

Bottle from Vinmonopolet Manglerud enjoyed at home
Pours dark brown with a small head of beige ugly bubbles that pops instantly. Wow, it’s not all that inviting! Smell of nuts, bread, hints of toast, some yeast. Light to moderate sweet, quite dry, nuts, toast, hints of coffee and chocolate, hints of an infection as well? I say this because i find some sour tendensies in the back. At this point it’s not a dealbreaker, so don’t put effort into it. The rest of the beer is close to a porter

Palme (3546) - Bergen, NORWAY - DEC 3, 2014
0.33l bottle. It most certainly doesn’t look too inviting this. A murky deep charcoal black murky body, no head what so ever no matter how hard I struggle to get at least a few bubbles. Smells old, earthy and dark. Kinda buttery, old coffee, old chocolate. Not very nice on the nose either really. As dead flat as I’ve ever had a beer, and it’s all thin and watery in the mouth. This has been a huge disappointment so far, but it tastes quite alright actually. Lots of nice bitter coffee, roasted to perfection and it’s a really comfortably tasty coffee porter this. Lingering cold old grey coffee, smoke and chocolate in the finish. Yeah, I hate everything else than the taste. Weird stuff! 13.09.2014

Transferring some earlier reviews from my blog to RB. Aprill 2014, Utobeer (Borough Market, £ 3,00), 33 cl. Must, pruunika helgiga. Bee˛ vaht kaob üpris kiirelt, jättes endast vaid väheseid märke. Aroom üllatab mingi kuivanud mullasuse, papisuse või kriidisusega, mis ei taha kuidagi ära kaduda, soojenedes küll lisandub rohkem toiduaineid meenutavaid külgi, nt väikese magusaga kange kohv, iiris, kakao... Keskmiku kehaga, üpris mõrkjas ja hapukas, mullisust ülemäära pole. Maitselt röstine, pisut kakaone, mõrkjas, järelmaik jääb pähkliselt kuiv. Juues tundub kangem kui tegelikult on. Jõuline. Midagi jääb siiski puudu...

Bottle 33 cl.
Dark red, tan head. Roasted malt and chocolate. Sweet, with more of the same, and a bitter finish.

Osprey87 (2028) - WALES - NOV 22, 2014
Had a bottle pre-RB but didn’t make notes. Cask this time. Black, small bubbly tan head. Aroma has light toffee and car fumes. Body is medium, smooth, some carbonation. Taste - woah - big musty, breathy, fumey flavour on this. Burnt plastic up front, ash, wood chip...it’s like sucking on rubber (one would imagine). Drinking like it’s a much bigger beer than it is. Fine, but not really my flavours here.

RickFifty (441) - Fredrikstad, NORWAY - NOV 19, 2014
Cloudy chestnut color, no head. Coffee nose, nuts, roasted malt, yeast, sour note. Coffee taste, sour, roasted malt, bitter finish, cardboard, unpleasant. Light body, flat. Infected bottle.

SlackerMads (1701) - Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 15, 2014
Bottle. Black with a large light brown head showing good retention and lace. Lots of burnt/hard roasted malt and coffee. Vanilla, chalk, cocoa, earthy, wooden. Medium body, light/medium sweet and light acidic. Roasted finish. Good stuff.
