COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Occasional. Also available bottle conditioned (at 5.0%).
The first Ale in our seasonal range, Powerhouse Porter is our modern take on this classic London beer style.
Powerhouse is named in association with our local landmark Battersea Power Station.
We brew with a combination of brown, chocolate, crystal and pale malts and hop with a blend of Fuggles, Boadicea, Challenger and Fuggles. Powerhouse Porter is 4.9% ABV with a rich, dark chocolate flavour and an aroma of toasted malt and winter fruits.

Rune (7775) - Tromsø, - DEC 7, 2012
Half- pint, cask at The Lamb, the classic Young’s pub in Bloomsbury. Very dark body with a deep ruby tint. Tiny off-white head. Aroma of roasted malts, wood and dried fruits. Pretty similar taste profile containing resinous hops, wood, earthy malts and bittersweet, dark chocolate to the ending. Nice (London, 26.11.2012).

Moderately sweet, slightly roasty bitter and delicately sour flavour, rather light bodied with a smooth carbonation. Earthy and leafy, moderately roasted malty aroma with notes of caramel, liquorice and chocolate; moderately dry and mildly roasty bitter finish with notes of chocolate and hints of leather in the aftertaste. 13.V.14

MichaelAwesome (3601) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - MAY 20, 2014
Classic one with expected aromas of some chocolate and coffee. Dark, a bit thick and full bodied. To recommend.

allmyvinyl (2892) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 15, 2014
Cask at The Grovesnor. Pours clear brown, minuscule bubbly white head. Aromas of light chocolate, toffee and nuts. Taste is more of the same. Smooth, light chocolate and toffee sweet. Clean finish. A refreshing porter!

AshtonMcCobb (2356) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 15, 2014
On cask at the Grosvenor. Appearance - more of a toffee than the expected opaque black. Some head. Nose - dark chocolate and some nuts. Taste - praline and dark chocolate. Palate - medium bodied with a creamy and silky texture with a fairly elegant and long finish. Tastes bigger than regular porter. Overall - this one lies somewhere between a Scotch Ale and a Porter for me. It’s very good.

kwik-lime (1243) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 27, 2014
Cask at JDWs in Surbiton. Some chocolate, roasted malt, ash. Slightly cloying palate let it down a little but a solid porter.
