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!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.
