COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask, Keg & Bottle Conditioned; Regular.
Previously 4.0%.

Named after a historic trading route steeped in legend and protected by an ancient Templar that runs from Walthamstow to Smithfield’s and passes directly behind our brewery. Our Braumaster likes to think he has heard whispers from the ancient Porters who travelled this route. He swears they spoke of a malty black brew, full of coffee and chocolate flavours that warmed the cockles after the long journey.
MALTS: Pale, Crystal, Chocolate, Black
HOPS: East Kent Goldings, Admiral, Bramling Cross

olio (6135) - Tampere, - JUN 12, 2013
50 cl bottle. BBE 07.02.2014.
Pours pitch black color with a medium sized, frothy and beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, nuts, some coffee and some dry dark chocolate. Flavor of dark malts, faint chocolate notes and this is where things start to go wrong, yeast, bun dough, some ripe fruits and ash. Feels a lot like a home brew gone a bit wrong. Not totally undrinkable but still quite a lot of off-flavors.

Cask Pint at Wibbas Down (JDW), Wimbledon, London in Feb 2014 - Spoons London Brewers Mini-Fest - Black in colour. Average tan head. Malty; roasty malts, dark chocolate, coffee notes, hint of liquorice, caramel. Fruity; hint of dark fruits. Hoppy; some hop bitterness. Tasty for low ABV. Mildly bitter roasty malty chocolatey with slight sour fruit/hop edge. Pretty good. Easy drinking. Sessionable.

sschwab (48) - London, ENGLAND - MAR 12, 2014
Bottle 12.3.14. Overall a pretty average porter. Pours a light dark brown that isn’t quite opaque. Small head - smells of slight caramel, and tastes slightly sweet and then bitter. Decent finish with some fairly high hops and a hint of coffee. Pretty mixed feelings about this - I suspect I may have got a duff bottle. Pretty good body for a low abv, but not roasty-toasty enough.
