This place reminded me of a typical American Brewpub, but the beer seemed better. The Plain had a good roasted and hoppy nose. Flavor was creamy and roasted with some english type hop presence. I liked this one. Too bad we didn’t have enough time to stay longer and sample more beers.

DanielBrown (3858) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 12, 2004
Sampled on tap at the London Porterhouse. Thick, brown head, almost opaque, black beer. A smooth tasting Porter, but one which, as the name suggests, is slightly lacking in flavour. A creeping, dull oat flavour to begin, finally revealing some bitterness on the finish. Pretty light, some sweetness. This is nice enough, but a bit too nitrokegged.

Draught, at the Head of Steam, Euston, London.
Black with a creamy bone head. Sweet metallic araoma. Metallic slightly out of conditioned flavour. I've not seen a lot of this being drunk whilst I was here. Definitely try another one of these to double check the condition.

Jeppe (2631) - Ølbutikken, DENMARK - FEB 15, 2004
Draught at The Porterhouse, London.
Tall and solid head on a dark brown/black body. Not much aroma, I only sense a little malt. Dry in the flavor with roasted malt, hops and some nuts. Quite ordinary.

kwoeltje (2232) - Manchester, Missouri, USA - JUL 22, 2003
Deep black with nice tan head and good lace. This would be called a stout anywhere else. Smoother and less bitter than the XXXX stout from Porterhouse. Nice black chocolate flavors with hints of roast coffee.

Davhgbrew (943) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 4, 2002
Chocolatey, a very thick consistancy for a porter, almost a stout. A decent flavorful brew.

Oakes (12723) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 17, 2002
UPDATED: MAR 18, 2011 Very dark brown; light toast, roast chocolate aroma. Fresh, almost tobaccoey character. Light toast. A fun porter.

Nuffield (3701) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUL 13, 2002
This was excellent--easily the best beer they brew. Extremely soft texture, foamy. Coffee and coffee ice cream flavors, as well as hints of chocolate/raspberry later on. Rather complex (better the Guinness). Trying to place the flavor, at one point I couldn’t get ’celery seed’ off my mind. A refreshing beer and evidence that the awards given out to beers are not wholly off-the-mark. (The brewery claims to have received an international-level award for this one).

bierkoning (10386) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JUN 6, 2002
Tasted in Dublin, june 2001. Coffee, roasted malt and liqorice in the fine taste of this thinnish beer. For a porter very easy to drink.

You gotta love a place where the bartender gets insulted when a patron orders a Guinness. This is what they serve up instead and it is far superior.
