COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask and bottle.
Brewed in August 2010 by members of the London Brewers Alliance at the Redemption Brewery.
A modern take on the classic London Porter, championing today’s fashion for assertive flavours and forward aromas. A blend of classic English and American hop varieties bring bright citrus notes to Porter’s classic chocolate aromas.

Dark, dark brown. Almost black. Big off-white head with plenty of lacing as it slowly dwindles away. Big piney aroma of hops with some great malt notes coming through. Big hop taste with some maltiness. Nice sweet and bitter finish.

Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUL 31, 2011
Cask at the Magpie & Crown, 22nd Oct 2010. Rosy red when held to the light, with a bubbly white head. Slightly thinner than expected but that’s not a bad thing - it’s very, very drinkable. I had four pints! Fruity with lots of rich caramel and earthy notes. Really nice stuff.

BeerCast_Rich (1879) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 6, 2011
330ml bottle, The Bottle Shop, Canterbury] Pours a dark brownish black with a voluminous head – very highly carbonated for a porter, gushed out of the bottle. Decent roasty aromas, chocolate and coffee porter staples on the taste with a long, bitter finish as the coffee comes out. Really drinkable [06052011]

tdtm82 (668) - Essex, ENGLAND - DEC 29, 2010
Bottle - disguised under a Kernel print - picked up from Evin, thanks mate, taken to Chris O’s pre-NYE tastings. I had this before at the brewers’ showcase night where I volunteered to serve at the brewwharf stand and it was very nice then. This is a chance to rate from a bottle with a bit more time as that night was busy. The aroma is cream; bitter coffee and chocolate. Taste is chocolate, charcoal, ash, roasted malts, caramel and leather. Bitterness is good and the finish is creamy and bitter. This is more of what should be produced in London these days.

harrisoni (13729) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 4, 2010
Bottle from Kernel as LBA Porter. Very black colour with a thick tan head. Chocolate coffee and fruit on aroma. Smooth and rather lovely in the mouth. The liquorice edge is rounded off thankfully. Lovely intense aroma. Clearly a lot of everything went into this. Rather big thick and lovely in the mouth. Good choc on the swallow and on into the finish. So is it any good? Yes. Shame it was a one off.

BeerViking (2472) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 22, 2010
UPDATED: OCT 30, 2010 Cask at the Magpie 23/10/10. Pours black with a medium-sized beige head. Wine, dry malt and dark choc on the nose. The full body brings liquorice, a slight tartness and a little mustiness of old ale, bitter-roast malt, black treacle, faint notes of banana. and red fruit. The aftertaste is dry and roasty, with a lingering bitterness. It gives a sense of what London Porter could have been like 150 years ago. Cask at O’Briens 30/10/10, red-black, notes of dark fruit, old red wine, black treacle, rich and full bodied yet dry. Dry roast and treacle aftertaste.

Cask Conditioned Handpump Brew Wharf Borough Market. A black beer with off white bubbles for a head. A little sour chocolate throughout this with roasty malts. Coffee notes also and it’s fairly fruity. Thinner than expected and nothing really special.
