Details

One of the classic Yorkshire breweries, Roosters have been going strong since 1993 putting out an eclectic mix of traditional cask ales and more recently some great craft offerings. Londinium, Roosters’ homage to the classic London Porter is very much on the traditional side of things, however the inclusion of of Coffee beans from Taylor's of Harrogate gives it a modern twist. It pours inky black, with an aroma of roasted malts and muted coffee. The flavour is bittersweet, roast malts meeting milky coffee and a little caramel. It’s silky smooth and very sessionable, so if you fancy a trip to the capital but don’t fancy the price of a train ticket down, this beer is the next best thing.

Coffee Stouts and Porters seem to fall on the sweeter side these days, so I was pleasantly surprised by this subtle, savory porter.

It starts nice and malty, with the coffee seeming to act like more of a bittering-hop on the back end, as you're left with a nice burnt-toast flavor on exhaling.

Very drinkable.
