Notes / Commercial Description:
This 18th Century-style Smoked Porter has subtle accent of peat-like Bamberg smoked malt, which is apparent in both the aroma and flavor. It is brewed with seven varieties of premium European malted barley, resulting in note of bittersweet chocolate and coffee that are counter-balanced by a long-sustaining finish of Goldings hops.

London-Style Porter - Arcadia Brewing Company. Poured from the bottle into a pint glass, this beer's head is fingers thick with lacing, and a body.


I can smell toasty malts, black licorice, and caramel.

Tastes like well-done type of roasted malt complex, which I'm into with porters. Along with pretty much the same components listed above

The mouthfeel of this brew is smooth and clean


Overall, I will give London-Style Porter - Arcadia Brewing Company a 4.25. A very nice sipper.

I finally got a chance to try this beer. It poured a nice dark brown/black colour. I found the taste to be somewhat sour and unpleasant and at first smell I was reminded of paint. Very strange. Overall I was very disappointed with this porter.

Purchased a 6pk at the LCBO for around $16.00. Served at a chilly 4deg C in a tulip

A- Opens well and pours no head that films out in seconds. Very dark brown

S- Not much here and what there is, is a blend of pepper and metal.

T- Not too bad. Has some good body with chocolate and toffee. Good coffee. Has bit of a burnt coco flavor at the very end. Be careful as this 7% beer feels like 4%....until...

M- Nice and creamy for a porter. I avoid porters due to the low mouth but this one is pretty good.

O- Has some good and bad in it. The good is definitely the mouth. The bad is the smell. Overall a good beer but a 6 is enough for me and this one

Food Pairing

This pretty good little porter went very well with...... BBQ hot dogs. Mine with onions and mustard.

Enjoy

12oz bottle. Dark and opaque.

S - Sharp and smoky. Smoked cheese aromas with some sweeter maltiness.

T -Again, a mix of sharp and sour flavours with less maltiness than you'd expect in a porter, although it's still there.

O - I'm not quite sold on the balance of this beer. It has an interesting flavour but I don't think there's enough maltiness to stand up to the unusual sour and smoky flavours for a porter.
