COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle and keg (USA): Pasteurised.
Fullerís London Porter, is widely regarded as the Worldís Finest Porter: having won awards all over the world, London Porter is regularly voted the number one Porter on beer websites such as www.ratebeer.com, a tremendous accolade to our brewing team. Rich, dark and complex, at 5.4% ABV the beer has an outstanding depth of flavour.
It is brewed from a blend of Brown, Crystal and Chocolate malts for a creamy delivery balanced by traditional Fuggles hops.

Bottle. Pours a dark brown with hints of mahogany and red in the color. Lightened coffee colored head. Smells very sweet and ripe like plums or with a slight chocolate smell. Tastes chocolatey and rich with coffee flavors becoming more pronounced in the finish. Not too carbonated, nice full body. This stuff is great!

Bottle from the Blind Pig, Champaign. Given the general decline of Blind Pigís tap list, Iím forced to go with their bottle options. A decided note of plum and chocolate on the nose. Mouthfeel is fairly lush and creamy, and the 5.4 ABV is rather refreshing and makes the beer highly drinkable. Notes of semi-sweet chocolate, prune, and a hint of Jolly Rancher like sweetness. The chocolate overwhelms everything else; I really donít get too much coffee notes here. Solid and worthy of some esteem, although perhaps not 4.08 esteem.

on tap at BierStube in Moline. a nice surprise to finally get to try this one and best of all it was on tap! rich chocolate aroma greets the nose and the pour was a dark brown with a seemingly ruby edge. flavors were well balanced chocolate and a bit of a coffee finish. low carbonation. great beer!

Very dark brown pretty much black pour, thin head that stayed but stayed very very thin. Aroma was of coffee bigtime. First sip it was like a chilled coffee, with very dark chocolate, but not very sweet at all. Tougher than some stouts Iíve had. A little on the bitter side also.

"Pour a dark dark brown, with a medium head. Wow the aroma was strong coffee with a little chocolate. Taste of malts cocoa and coffee, little sweet. Full body with a perfect finish. "

50 cl bottle. No yeast at the bottom. Dark allmost black colour with a great large head. Great aroma of smooth coffee, chocolate and hints of roastedness. Wonderfull smooth flavour of roasted malt, coffee and hints of chocolate and liquorice. Ends smooth bitter with a very long aftertaste. This one is a really great traditional porter.

Pours cola with a small, fading, tan head. The aroma is sweet caramel and toffee, some roasted notes. The flavor is roasted and chocolates, dry with a bitter end. The mouthfeel is smooth.

Fullers London Porter is a must for any porter lover. I especially like the hints of chocolate in this porter.

Bottle. Bottled 8/29/05. I was very surprised by this beer. Very nice, creamy dark chocolate aroma. Also nice hints of coffee and liquor. Poured a nice ruby brown color. Nice medium size off white head that lasted the whole beer. Good lacing as well. First thing I noticed when drinking was how creamy and smooth this beer was. Very nice. The taste was just like it smelled. Hints of creamy, dark chocolate, coffee, caramel and liquor. Nice smooth finish. Little to no aftertaste. One very nice beer. I look forward to trying more Fullerís brews.
