• 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.

Jesterdeal (1984) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - JUN 14, 2013
Bottle in a trade. Aroma is amazing with deep molasses, chocolate, and espresso. Pours sludgy black with a small deep brown head. Taste is super roasty with coffee, roasty cocoa and bitter dark chocolate. I can’t describe how dark this porter is. Very surprising and delicious.

Bottle - Can’t remember who shared this one. Pours black with a thin tan head. Nose is cocoa powder with dry roasty malt. Taste is dry malt with a chocolatey medium roast malt base. A bit of sweet malt in there. Medium-bodied with nice carbonation.

12oz bottle shared at a local tasting, pours a really dark brown with a thin off white head, the aroma has a good amount of chocolate mixed in with some dark fruit and vanilla too, the flavor has a nice sweet front end with a little bit of chocolate in the finish, pretty nice.
