• 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.

Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Super soft chic mouthfeel. Hides it’s strength brilliantly. Toasty chic. Bristles. Rich, yet aerated.

Gurthnar (2479) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - DEC 20, 2013
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.

rand (1297) - SWITZERLAND - NOV 8, 2013
All black Porter, brown head leaving thin laces on the glass. Beautiful nose of roasted, chocolate, notes of coffee and dark fruits. The mouth is round and fleschy, similar roasted, chocolate, coffee, roasted nuts, soft and caramelized sweetness like a treat fruity. Finale on dark chocolate, bitterness of roasted and hops mixed, sugar coated.

12oz bottle in a snifter. Pours black with a lacy, tan head. Aroma of rich, roasted malts, some chocolate and coffee, a little smokiness, some hints of dark fruits, and a little bitterness. Flavor the same with a decent blend of everything. Smooth texture. A pretty good imperial porter.

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.

JStax (3397) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - SEP 7, 2013
12 ounce bottle thanks to umich03jm. Pours a darker brown to black with a khaki head of foam. Aroma is roast, bitter, and a little smoky. Tastes has some smoky and barbecue influences throughout. Kind of on the sweet and ashy side. Overall, very pleasant.

koleminer20 (857) - 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
