• 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.

Trade from umich43jm, thanks Jason! Pours deep black with a brown head. Smells of coffee, dark malt and bourbon. This is a substantial dark beer, with plenty of caramel malt, some molasses, some smoke and dark coffee. Very nice.

koleminer20 (602) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - AUG 24, 2013
On tap at HopCat in East Lansing. . Pours a beautiful dark dark brown. Medium dark tan head that laces nicely. The aroma has some nice roasted malt tones, a mild infusion of coffee, a hint of chocolate, and then the strange smell of warm milk on a deep inhale. The taste is very roasty, a hint of the coffee, not much chocolate, and then finishes in a semi-dry fashion. Overall, pretty tasty
