3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
The DM & Hotstuff’s European Honeymoon trip beer number 32. This draft brew from the Porterhouse brew pub in London poured a small sized head of fine to large sized foamy off-white colored bubbles. The body was a semi-opaque dark ruby red brown color with no visible carbonation. It had a mild malt hop aroma with a good note of molasses. The mouth feel was smooth mildly flat with a mild malty finish. The flavor contained notes of malts and molasses.

Nice chocolate aroma, wiht a hint of expresso. Dark brown with a ruby tint. Creamy nitro head. Bitter chocolate start, medium body, roasty finish. Simple, but well done.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: OCT 14, 2004 Nitro keg at Porterhouse, Covent Garden. Served cold and creamy. Roasty bitterness comes through along with raspberry. No aroma. Possibly more bitter than Guinness. Drinkable, but not exciting. A Guinness clone. [3.0]
Nitro keg @ Covent Garden. Watery. Fruity. Wheaty. Oatmeal notes. If on cask and without nitro this might be a tasty stout. It's a shame the way beer are treated in this place. [2.7]

Draught at The Porterhouse WC2. A black beer with a creamy white head. There is a nice roastiness to the aroma and taste with some chocolate tastes thrown in. A good tasty beer.

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.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
