Short's Publican Porter (Imperial London Porter)

This is #1 of 13 different Imperial Series beers released by Short's Brewing in 2007. They were all made available at the brewery in 750ml bottles with a trading card explaining the beer and signed by brewmaster Joe Short attached to each one. I was lucky enough to lay my hands on these and my thoughts are below:


750ml bottle. #155 of 672.
Brewed 6/1/06
Bottled 2/5/07

Pours into my glass a thick deep dark black that is impervious to light. An inch of creamy tan foam on top that leaves lacing all over the glass as it falls. Aromas start with dark malts along with a big blast of cocoa. Caramel accents meld with licorice notes. Somewhat sweet with bold molasses undertones.

First sip brings dark roasted malt upfront that carries some residual sweetness with it as well. Big cocoa flavors along with licorice and molasses flavors. A touch of coffee melds into the flavor. Flows down with some bitterness and a mellow hop tone. Baker's chocolate and a bit of alcohol on the finish. A big, robust porter.



Mouthfeel is smooth and had a good viscosity. Carbonation is on the more mellow side which works nice. Goes down almost too easily. Overall, a good imperial porter and it is holding up extremely well after two years in the bottle now. Very glad I had the chance to try this and I hope Short's brews it again.

Overall this beer gets a rating of Great.
