COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Travel to a time of brewers lore, when smoke was spelled "smoake," when dark beers held the collective hearts and mind of the people of merry old England. Believe it or not, back in the 1850s, Porter ruled the beer world, and no one brewed Porter like the brewers of London. Drawing their water from the Thames, blending old and new batches, and experimenting with new types of malt, Porter evolved throughout the years, and probably at one time held some substantial smoakiness. Arcadias London Porter draws on this rich historic tradition, but adds a few special twists to make it all our own. The flavor of London Porter is multi-layered, starting with a bold, pleasing sweetened coffee richness, which gives way to round and subtle smoke, much like a delicately smoked ham. Porcine sweetness is capped by a gloss of fig jam or cherry compote, fruity and complex. Faint pear and hay notes barely poke through, reminders that there are some delightful American Glacier hops under all the finery.

12oz bottle, courtesy of artusory. Thanks, Ryan! Pours a dark brown center; light tan head with good lacing. Plenty of marshmallow and bitter chocolate in the aroma. Medium-to-full mouthfeel: roasted malts, vanilla extract, and milk chocolate; hints of smoke and bitter citrus hops. Medium, roasted malt and bitter chocolate finish.

Dragonfly1 (500) - Colorado, USA - DEC 8, 2007
Ruby red / black pour, with slight head lasting the entire glass. Much nicer mouthfeel & carbonation than the Arcadia Scotch Ale I just had. Aroma of sweet plum and raisin, similar to a dubbel. Heavy port-like sweetness smacks you up-front, balanced by moderate bitterness and even just a slight hint of sourness at the finish. Alcohol is prevalent thoughout. Quite interesting.

KawaBomber (221) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 31, 2007
12oz Bottle: Very dark brown w/ a small light brown head that dissolves quickly. Very nice light roasted malt aroma w/ hints of coffee & chocolate. Rich malty flavor w/ some light smokiness. A littl too much carbonation for me. Smooth, save the over carbonation. Great, but the cO2 is killin me...

ben4321 (6274) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAR 24, 2010
Location: 12 oz bottle from Gillys, 3/24/10

Aroma: The aroma is roasted malts, chocolate, earth, and some nutty notes
Appearance: Pours a dark brownish color with a light brown head
Flavor: The flavor is highly malty up-front with a lightly bitter finish
Palate: Medium-full body, lively carbonation, and a somewhat creamy mouthfeel
Overall Impression: This porter is a pretty solid beer, it has a lot of roasted flavors to it. It has a nice combination of malty flavors that work pretty well together.

Pours dark brown with frothy head. Aroma is smoky, with hints of coffee and roasted matls. Flavor has some soy sauce, roasted malts, coffee, and a persistent smokiness that lingers throughout. Decent porter, although personally prefer them a little sweeter.
