• 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.

UPDATED: MAR 17, 2012 750mL Bottle. Thanks Andy! Aroma casts a fresh, bristling dark roast. Classic and deep. Rich, nuanced and detailed aroma, backed with chocolate, a slight twinge of age and some house yeast character that works for this beer. Pours black, with a well-lacking creamy tan rim. Piquant and darkly tangy roast edge to this. A really intense rich roast in the porter tradition, backed with some lightly piney hops. Prickly and coppery. Vibrant, with a unique blend of hop resin and roast character that melds well into the roast, yeast, and alcohol characters. Still vibrantly hoppy two years in. The roast hasn’t gotten mushy or oxidized. This is a fantastic example of the style.
12oz Bottle. Thanks Sean! Re-rated 03.17.2012. I still believe this is one of the best examples of this style ever. The porter and dark malt qualities of this beer are fantastic. I love the snappy, sharp, crispness of the malt texture that really plays well with the higher alcohol level. So complex and satisfying. An extremely well formulated brew.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 20, 2009
Near black colored with red hints. Medium sized beige head. Excellent aroma with roastiness and fine vinous note, licorice also with salty note. Medium to full bodied, soft palated. Flavor starts with sweet caramelly roastiness, same vinous tone also here. Aftertaste turns to hopped and mildly alcoholic. Reminds me of dear old Zywiec porter.

BeerandBlues2 (10074) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - MAR 8, 2009
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.

TheEpeeist (3400) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 21, 2009
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.

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.
