• 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.

750, capped and leafletted. #299/672. Thanks, SuzyGreenberg! Jet black. Dense, creamy tan head. Big chocolate and coffee nose. Plummy, with reduced dark pitted tree fruits showing through. Creamy medium body. Tons of roast, fruit, chocolate, and coffee on the mid-palate. Super yummy.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - APR 15, 2009
A thick, dark chocolate-mahogany colored body pours from the bottle, crowned by small, dense, khaki shaded head. Viscous legging leaves a brownish tint on the glass, slowly forming spotty lacing that sticks. The nose shows some Baltic tendencies, with big notes of dark fruit accompanying a roasty, choco-caramel malt base. Hints of vanilla and licorice emerge, as does an earthen hop profile and traces of coffee. Flavors are equally impressive, with fudgy chocolate, figs, dark caramel, and earthy roast all coming together nicely. The licorice really plays an important role, lending unique complexity. Medium-full and softly carbonated, the palate works nicely for the style. Damn nice brew.

One of my favorites so far of the series. Nice and malty with and good level of roast on the malts. Not too bitter. Some cocoa and coffee with a touch of heat.

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 (12101) - Escondido, California, 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.
