3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(bottle) Clear, very dark brown, almost black colour with a beige and firm medium-sized foamy head. Chocolatey and moderately roasted malty aroma with notes of caramel, mocha and an ashy and subtle fruity touch. Quite roasty bitter flavour, light to medium bodied with a moderate carbonation. Dry roasty malt-character with burnt notes, dark chocolate, mocha and again a discreetly fruity touch; quite dry and roasty bitter finish with hints of mocha and liquorice spice. A pretty good standard Stout. 31.VIII.12

Light stout when looking at the ABV. Aroma is very balanced. Typical roasty, creamy stout. Mouthfeel suprised me. Pretty thick! Tasted creamy, syrup sweetness, roasted malt. Dry aftertaste, as expected. Very decent.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Maker: Fuller, Smith & Turner PLC (Fullerís), Chiswick, London, England ***
Beer: Fullerís London Black Cab Stout (formerly Black Cab Stout) - bottled, 500ml ***
Style: Stout ***
ALC.VOL: 4.5% ***
"Brewed with a combination of five different malts, some heavily roasted for a near jet black appearance, and beneath its dark exterior features luxurious red berry notes, toasty aromas on the nose and culminates in a dry, bitter finish. " [brewery notes] ***
Colour: Dark brown, almost black. Medium beige head. ***
Nose: Roasted malts. Coffee, a hint of vanilla. ***
Texture: Medium bodied, not watery at all. Mild carbonation. ***
Taste: Coffee malts, a wee hint of licorice and vanilla, but mostly dry. No fruit at first. Middle still dominated by coffee malts. Finish has a slightly fruity black currant note. Aftertaste is strongly bitter espresso, very dry. ***
Impressions: Powerful, rather straightforward traditional stout, dry like a Guinness but more interesting (and less "charcoal-like"). Good stuff from Fullerís.

Kitöltve szép fekete színe van, habja világos barnás! Illatra pörkölt kávé! Ízre szintúgy! A korty vége enyhén savanykás keserűség érződik! Lehetne egy kicsit testesebb!

Bottle. Black colour with a brown head. Rich and sweet aroma with notes of roasted malt and coffee. Medium dry taste with a heavy dose of roasted malt. Medium bitterness. Slightly acidic. Medium body, average carbonation, bitter finish. A good stout, but perhaps a bit too dry.

Too warm and in a mug (so appearance rating a grain of salt). But still an enjoyable experience. Really toasty - lots of burnt toast, cocoa. Has a bitter edge to it, seems to even have some acidity (or just citrus) to sharpen it up.
