look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

This coffee porter is a dark brown, pretty much identical in look to the original London porter with slightly more darkness against the light. It grows a brown head to half a finger tall, both tightly and sparsely bubbly, so that it falls off a bit more quickly than the original but not too quickly. A moderate amount of lacing is left in patches.
The roasted coffee is there in the nose without overpowering this porter. There's a touch of cocoa, a bit of toast, and a mildly herbal quality (hops, I would think). Roasty malt still underlies this beer.
The taste is essentially the same, but the coffee backs off ever so slightly and needs to come forward. There's also a ghost of astringency as if from a slightly acidic edge to the coffee.
There's a nice creaminess to the medium body, though it goes a bit too foamy (as with the original). It does have a good smoothness to it.
Overall, I think it loses just a little something, or maybe that it gains just that very slight acidity to it, but it's a good beer.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Aroma: light roast malt character with a hint of coffee. Light diacetyl.

Appearance: dark brown with golden hues in the light. Off white head that lingers.

Taste: roast and toast are prominent. Slight noble hop bitterness in the finish. Coffee flavor presents as the beer warms, but not overly coffee.

Mouthfeel: light body with medium carbonation. Slightly tannic in the finish.

Overall: easy drinking coffee porter. Coffee blends in well with the roasted malt.
