A dark beer with a hint of coffee in the finish, brewed using a blend of four malts and English hops. Londinium is a nod to the beers of yesteryear and, in particular, the style made popular by the street and river porters in London in the eighteenth century.

Had this in bottle at Bracelands Campsite, nr Coleford, Forest of Dean, Glos, Saturday 6th September 2014 Pours black with light beige head. Wonderfully roasty, coffee shows but in smooth mellow way. However this does also show a dark fruity side. A6 A4 T7 P4 Ov14 3.5

500ml bottle (Birofilia2014, Zywiec) (8-:4:7+:4:15=3.8)
Lovely roasted coffee and malts in the aroma, very well integrated if it is doped, and brilliantly engineered if it is just malts. Ditto the taste - refreshing even though it’s very full and roasty. Some milkiness too. Black, small tan head. Really good stuff.

Osprey87 (1700) - WALES - JUL 12, 2014
Cask at Cask PK. Black (or very dark ruby), tiny off-white head. Aroma - malty, burnt coffee bean, ash. Body is medium to light, low carbonation, a little foamy. Taste is difficult to pin down. Some sips were nice - rounded, musty ash, sweet coffee with a tangy astringent finish. Other sips were like eating some lemon that had been left too close to the garlic in the fridge. Overall, drinkable, a touch watery.

Marduk (2725) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 12, 2014
500ml bottle. Very dark brown color. Tiny to almost no head. Roast, spicy, alcohol in aroma. Weak aroma. Milky, roast, malts, slightly sweet taste. Soft carbonation. Sourish mouthfeel. Bit thin, but still drinkable.

dinkle50 (972) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 7, 2014
Black pour with a single finger head. Slight espresso color with a coffee aroma. Slightly fruity. Taste is full of rich coffee. A little roasty. Chocolate creeps in as well. Balanced finish. Mouth is nice and light. Getting this on cask is a treat.

Niall73 (1775) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 19, 2014
Cask at CBC Covent Garden. Pours a dark reddy brown. Aroma is toffee, plum, cherry medicine. Medium body, mild carbonation. Light treacle, light choc, a little lemon, cherry, dark fruit, lightly sticky. It's OK, a little metallic on the finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from Booth’s, Ripon. Black with a quite quickly fading tan head. Very good roast malt flavours with lots of chocolate. Really good.

dynamiteninja (1511) - Richmond, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 4, 2014
Bottle. Pours a deep mahogany with a thin tan head with no retention. Nose is hops, citrus, green apple, coffee, spice, oak wood, red fruit, alcohol, black malt, roast, blackcurrant, hint of blue cheese. Reasonable bitterness. Dry finish. Soft mouthfeel. Gentle carbonation. Horrible saltiness. Not great considering its strength, style and expectations. Stick to the golden ales Roosters!
