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.

Maker: Fuller, Smith & Turner PLC (Fuller’s), Chiswick, London, England *** Beer: Fuller’s 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 Fuller’s.

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