• 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.

SpongeRuiner (777) - Michigan, USA - FEB 17, 2014
A floral hop aroma not very strong. A dark color and dark minimal head. Solid looking beer. Creamy mouthfeel that really warms nicely. The flavor is layered nicely with milk chocolate with a nice counter part of hop bitterness.

mjakopa (220) - Maribor, SLOVENIA - FEB 7, 2014
Pours a dark black with little, dark brown head. Aroma is a slightly chocolatey, coffee, hints of caramel and roasty. Body is on the lighter side, slightly roasted, sweet, and slightly bitter. Aftertaste ends dry and hoppy and quite alcoholic (although not overpowering, and surprisingly little given its ABV)

biehrmaker (1) - Ypsilanti, Michigan, USA - FEB 7, 2014 does not count
This is a wonderful porter for the winter months with explicit dark roasted flavors that correlate with distinct chocolate overtones. This smooth dark finishes well with just enough hops for a crisp aroma and clean finish. a definite must-try!

Bottle shared by Bobo, thank you! Aroma dried fruits, raisins, plum. Alcohol. Chocolate, roasted. Quite complex. Clear dark ruby-brown colour. Taste is sweet all the way, though some light bitterness is present in the background. Cognac. Caramel, fruity. Full body, alcohol not disturbing, although present. Great experience.
