dark, smooth, easily drinkable porter. Well blended with a nice warm feel. Nice off-white head when poured, taste is a bit more crisp when drank cold but mellows as temp increases. Good all around brew.

Rubīna melnums krāsā, dzidrs, ar nelielām putām. Smaržā jūtams dūmains grauzdējums, auksta kafija, kaut kas no tumšās šokolādes. Tas pats sajūtams arī garšā, bet grauzdējumam pievienojas arī kaut kas no riekstiem, plus vēl tumšās šokolādes garša un aukstas kafijas atblāzma. Ķermenis diezgan viegls, ļoti dzerams alus.

Smells and tastes of roasted coffee beans rich texture but little complexity. Slight moderate bitterness in the finish.

Moje první zkušenost s anglickým porterem, který byl doopravdy výborný :) Dal bych si ho zase.

I’ve been searching for this beer for years, from back when porter was my favorite style and I’d just found ratebeer. London Pride was easy to find, but bottles of this were never around anywhere in Seattle. It went on draft one time at Bottleworks, but keg blew before I got there. I saw it on draft once in 2014 on a trip to Iowa, but I ended up drinking Toppling Goliath and a Wine Barrel Noir instead, foolishly figuring it’d be easy to find in the midwest when visiting family. Never saw it on draft again. Or in bottles. So imagine my surprise and delight when I stumbled across this 4-pack at the Party Source. Your days of eluding me have come to an end, Mr. London Porter.

Dark brown pour with khaki head of moderate duration that dissipates to a ring. For lack of a better description, this is sort of what I imagine from an Old World porter -- less aggressive on the roast bitterness side than my American favorites, but with a richer malt profile. Caramel, toffee, bread, creamy milk chocolate, hints of dark fruit. These flavors come in waves, finishing with a light roast bitterness of short duration, followed by lasting chocolate. Medium- body; slick texture, average carbonation. Overall: this is bottle 3 out of 4. The first bottle I opened warm as soon as I walked through the door and was a bit disappointed. But the last two bottles have impressed me more and more. Well-deserved reputation. Hope it doesn’t take me another 5 years to come across this one again.

Bottled. Pours deep brown colur with quickly disappearing beige head. Coffee, cocoa and roasted notes in aroma. Basically it has the same notes in aroma, combined with slight smoky/woody notes. It finishes with moderate bitterness and with warming some very slight alcoholic notes also appear. Softly carbonated and medium bodied with a creamy mouthfeel. Nice one.

Very very nice but not as stellar as others suggest. Strong yeasty smell, loads of chocolatey malts in the taste. Would prefer a bit more depth or unique notes but still very good.

Bottle. Black with tan head. Lovely chocolate and coffee malt aroma. Medium sweet sweetness. Lovely creamy mouthfeel. Nice bitter finish. A truly delicious beverage. Great value for money too.
