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!?

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.

Absolutely bloody lovely! Possibly my favourite Porter of all time. Hits every note spot on and ends as good as it starts. Gorgeous!

RuneStumo (2474) - Haugesund, NORWAY - APR 19, 2015
20.04.2015. 0,33l Bottle. Vinmonopolet Haugesund. Black colour with absolutely no carbonation. Thats not rigth? Its flat with sour notes. Body is pretty rich with coffee, licqorice and dark malts. Sour with a bitter finish. Spoiled bottle I think.

Benzai (11359) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - APR 19, 2015
Bottle @ home. Almost opaque dark brown color, medium sized off-white head that leaves fair lacing. Aroma is quite faint, I only get malts, a hint of caramel, a little earthy. Taste malts, again some caramel, a touch of hazelnut, earthy, lightly ashy, quite some roast and moderately bitter with a slight touch of red fruit in the background. Decent body, suitable quite soft carbonation. Good porter.

allmyvinyl (7165) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 28, 2015
330ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Pours opaque dark brown, 2 inch foamy beige head from hal-pouring the bottle. A tad over-carbonated. Aromas are acidic, burnt malt, ash. Taste is tar, light liquorice, charcoal. Coffee coming through, and dark chocolate. Prickly carbonation though.
