Traditional Coffee Porter
A dark beer with a hint of coffee on the finish, brewed using four malts, English hops and the addition of Taylors of Harrogate After Dark coffee, Londinium is a nod to the beer of yesteryear and, in particular, the style made popular by the street and river porters of London in the 18th century.

Aroma 5 Appearance 4 Taste 5 Palate 4 Overall 10
Black color with a fine beige head on top. Ok intensity in the aroma. Medium (+) body and a soft to average carbonation level. Tad sweet and a decent bitterness. Dry ending, and also some sour notes. Mostly coffee, roast and toffee in the flavor.
[Bottle from a trade with Sigmund]

jjsint (3436) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 15, 2017
Keg tap at the Rake, Borough. Purple-black, very translucent with a small cream-coloured head. Liquorice, charcoal, and bramble all feature in the light aroma (I don’t get coffee at all). Sweet taste. The burnt malts are pushed to the background in favour of sweet blackberry and hazelnut. Very light body with heavy carbonation. Far more refreshing than your average porter, but lacking the body and depth of the best representations of the style. So a trade-off, but not an impossible one. Coffee porter though? I just don’t get that.

Towey1989 (3165) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 13, 2017
Bottle at Beerdock Leek. Pours a deep brown colour with a medium tan head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, some roasted malts, slight fruit and subtle spicy hops. Taste of coffee, chocolate, roasted malts, some bready malts, slight fruit and subtle dark fruits. Medium bodied and moderate carbonation. A dryish, roasted chocolate bitterness in the finish. A very nice, well rounded Coffee Porter. Another great, solid beer from Roosters.

uckelman (813) - Durham, ENGLAND - APR 18, 2017

Mr_Pink_152 (5432) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - AUG 29, 2016
Tried at the cardinals hat, Lincoln. Black with a tan head. Fruity and light roasted malt aroma and taste that also has chocolate and coffee. Nice porter.

Finn (7916) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAR 1, 2016
Fra fat på Sheffield Tap 15 Feb 16. Delt med Rune. Ultramørk amber. Eg. svart. Lavt, lett farget skum. Tett tynn lacing. God aroma av røstet malt. Smaken metallisk syrlig. Røstet malt. Kaffe. Kaffen blir tørr etter hvert.

Rune (13382) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 25, 2016
Keg, half pint, shared with Finn while waiting for a Derby train at Sheffield Tap. Crocheted lacing from a low, beige head. Dark coloured body with a deep ruby tint. Rich aromas of dark bread with notes of liquorice and coffee. Flavours of dark dough, coffee, and liquorice. Roasted bitter finish. Decent version of the style (Sheffield 15.02.2016).
