This is Arcadia Brewing's version of an 18th Century "Smoked Porter". Their London Porter has a subtle accent of beechwood smoked malt, which comes through nicely in the aroma and the flavor. Brewed using seven varieties of premium European malted barley, this full-bodied beer is characterized by hints of chocolate and coffee, and balanced by a long-lingering hoppy bitterness.
In a style that generally focuses on malt alone, their London Porter is unique in its rich, smoky, peaty characteristics. It has earthy, grassy notes as well, courtesy of UK Goldings hops.
