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!?

Gravicask (PBF2015, Wednesday) (7+:5:7:4+:15=3.8++)
Beautiful black, small tight head. Wonderfully chocolatey aroma. Beautifully soft palate. Lovely real malts in that roast, no fake adjuncts creating a proper bitter chocolatey feel. Palate also very rich. This is a fantastic porter - we’re fighting over the glass. Ever so slightly drying element to the finish, but only enough to make you want another mouthful. Phil gets it more as coffee grounds, but according to Anna, Phil is wrong. Anna thinks it stays on chocolate the whole time, never veering to wards coffee. Anna should get her own account.
