• 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.

It’s pitch black and the head is dark brown, creamy and lasting. The aroma has a light sweetness and notes of roasted malt, dark fruits, soy sauce and chocolate. The flavour has a light sweetness, notes of roasted malt, dark fruits, chocolate, licorice, a roasted bitterness, light soy sauce and towards the end of the very long finish, I also get hits of coffee.

Rune (7988) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 1, 2008
Big bottle from Ølbutikken, Copenhagen. Shared with Skinnyviking. Dense, tan coloured head over a devil-black body. Nice glass-lacing. Dark malty aroma with notably alcohol. Anise and chocolate can be detected, but the delicate flavour is partial run over by alcohol. Bitter endnotes. Full bodied (Valby, 10.09.2008)

awaisanen (1304) - Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 27, 2008
From a 750mL Bottle. Dark brown, blackish opaque color with ruddy tannic hues and a thin, wispy head of light tan. Fudgey, chocolate brownie malt aromas with hints of prune and raisin. Some toasted almond and other mild nutty and light roasty malt tones compliment nicely. Medium full bodied, softly carbonated mouthfeel with a slightly oily texture. Flavors of chocolate and toast with a kiss of minty hops. Finishes moderately roasty with a pleasant coffee flavor lingering. Wonderfully decadent chocolate malt base with lots of depth and heft, yet at the same time not overly sweet. Pleasantly fruity and an overall well executed beer. Thanks, Tom!
