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.

BlackHaddock (4378) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - DEC 22, 2014
500ml bottle: BBE 05/15, poured into an Abbot ale glass tankard in 12/14. Proper dark brown body with a lasting tanned blanket of foam on top. Roasted, almost burnt malty nose and taste with a ground coffee trace, especially in the finish. Good body depth and a full feel to the texture, leaning towards creamy and oily slick in fact. Very pleasant indeed.

laiti (6251) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 10, 2014
Cask @ Gallows Bird, Espoo. Aroma is mild with licorice and coffee. Also sweet syrupy tones. Flavour has coffee, licorice, some toffee, ash, hints of salt very mellow herbal tones. Smooth, pleasant and easy to drink. The saltiness & herbs become a bit unpleasant after some sips though.

JohnRMurdoch (3513) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - DEC 3, 2014
Cask @ The State Bar. Very dark brown, not much head. Treacle coffee aroma. Bitter leafy coffee flavour. Earthy coffee aftertaste. Disappointing.

RexTalionis (2788) - FINLAND - NOV 20, 2014
Cask. Dark brown in color, tan bubbly head. Roasted malts, dark and fresh salty licorice in aroma. Salty licorice with lingering roastyness in taste. Smooth coffee vibes as well in finish with some hints of bitterness mixed with even more salty licorice and there’s that light burnt feeling as well present.

Jen81 (19) - Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 27, 2014
@The Thomas Drummond, Fleetwood. A lovely rich dark colour with a creamy white head. Smell is immediately of ground coffee. Taste is just like drinking strong coffee, but cold. A sweetness cuts the bitterness reminiscent of chocolate coated coffee beans. This is pretty much my perfect beer!

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
