• Rooted from the original purveyor of integral ale
• Beer Type: Imperial London Porter

Publican Porter is a full-flavored Imperial porter, with a black, opaque color that leaves a pleasing dark brown lace. Rich, decadent aromas of espresso entice the senses, eventually giving way to subtle biscuit like tones. The use of heavily roasted malt imparts tasty flavors of burnt coffee and dark chocolate, accompanied by a suitable and pleasant bitterness.

Bottle shared by Crosling. Pours opaque with a large, frothy, dark brown head, completely lasting with excellent lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (chocolate, roasted grain, nutty), average hop (grass, herbs), heavy yeast (leather, broth) with notes of prune, date, raisins, tar, and alcohol. Full bodied, creamy texture, lively carbonation, and a bitter-chalky finish. Average duration, moderate sweetness, acidity, and bitterness.

25.4 oz bottle. Inky brown with a beautiful crema head. Nose like a chocolate malted with coconut. Notes of coffee, molasses and hay. Full body with sudsy carb. Taste is intense chocolate, espresso, prune and molasses. Finishes oily and rubbery but kind of adds to the brashness.

incutrav (577) - Woodbury, Minnesota, USA - JAN 20, 2009
Smells of dark coco, and not much else. Quite sweet, tastes like its from bourbon barell almost. Lots of rich chocolate flavors, along with a strong boozy sweetness that comes along afterwards. I wish I would have not saved this for so long, because I think the booziness came forward a little more then it would have been. Still a good porter.

750ml from a fine gent on the other site - thanks! Viscous dark brown pour, thick head, and an appetizingly inky body. Very strong chocolates in the nose. Slightly dry baker’s chocolate leads off the taste, but there’s a nice combo of dark fruits and yeast in there that rounds out the complex brew quite nicely. Hops for balance and lively mouthfeel, this is a nice one.

jcr (2187) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - DEC 30, 2008
750 ml. Brewed 6-7-06. Bottled 2-5-07. Black pour with appealing dark brown, frothy head, mostly diminishing. The aroma has lots of dark, semi-sweet chocolate, roasted malts, coffee, licorice and raspberry. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and moderately bitter and then shows some fruity, cherry tartness. Dry, too. Enough bitter/tartness to mute the sweet chocolate. Medium bdoy wtih a watery texture, but turns slightly chalky — perhaps a characteristic of its age. Lively carbonation. This beer is like a liquid raspberrry-coffee truffle. Very enjoyable. Nicely crafted.
