UPDATED: MAR 5, 2004 This impressive beer is obviously brewed using magic. I imagine a wizard in some London castle churning the stuff out from bubbling cauldrons. Had it on tap and was impressed by the thick, creamy head. I think that if left alone the head may have lasted forever. And don't even get me started on the perfect coffee color of this magnificant brew. Alright, if I seem a little over excited let me just explain that this was the first porter I have experienced on draught and until now I have not understood the true potential of a porter. I am already a big stout fan though so I can cetainly appreciate the chocolate malt flavor and the rich malt aroma that acompanies this beer but what I was not expecting was the perrfectly balanced crisp hops finish. That finish dazzled and delighted me like few beers every have. This is a beer that knows what it is doing and does it very well. I think the greatest single aspect of this beer is the way it matures in the glass. With every sip it seems to evolve, to develop deeper and more meaningful complexity. I understand from the buddy who shared this experience with me that this beer might take some time to grow on you. I say, if you are going to let anything grow on you let it be Fullers London Porter.

definitely creamy. initially sweet and caramelly until the hops take over. the slight bitterness gives way to dry, subtle coffee-chocolatey-goodness in the end.

Clear mahogany red color glowing in the glass with a frothy tan head that left good lace. Nose of tea, coffee and chocolate. Very smooth mouthfeel. Lots of dusty bitter chocolate in the taste, with vanilla, licorice and an almost smokey nuttiness. Smokey bitter hop finish. Much better warm.

Pours black with small head. Very strong roasted malt aroma. Sweet chocolate, roasted coffee flavor. Very small amount of bitterness, just enough to balance. Very full body. Excellent mouthfeel, creamy. Dry finish. Vey nice beer. The best porter I have had.

UPDATED: AUG 4, 2005 I was planning to drink the Dolle Dulle Teve 10 as my 600th rating, but suddenly this one came up. Clear dark brown coloured. Complex aroma and flavour, malts, coffee, cocoa, bit smokey. Complex and nevertheless very smooth and easy-to-drink. Very nice brew.

Color is cola with ruby tint; massive beige head, rocky and long-lasting, with sticky sea-foam traces left in its wake...Wonderful, slightly winey aroma full of sweet and roasted goodness, with hints of chocolate and assorted other goodies...The flavor is a fine mixture of ingredients: coffee, chocolate, a slight nuttiness, and fruit flavors as well (dates come to mind). Roasty bitterness comes through in the finish, with a light lingering dryness...Body is moderately full, and the layering of flavors really stimulates the palate while delivering this rich bounty with an elegant smoothness...This is extremely satisfying---one of the best from this outstanding brewery.

UPDATED: APR 25, 2005 The dominant aroma is of roasted malt, reminds of the aroma of a dry stout like Beamish. Minor aroma of red wine. Black with a red tint in the light. The head is small but thick and leaves a heavy lace on the glass. Several flavors, most prominent is the roasted malt again. Also coffee, some chocolate, and fruit. Unfortunately, all of these flavors seem to be holding back. This beer is thiner than I would like. Still very good, but maybe not 99th percentile good.

Great Porter. Coffee, chocolate, and malt flavor. Finishes creamy, smooth, and dry. Recommended.

Everything about this beer is great...I'm not a coffee/chocolate drink person, so I didn't fully enjoy the taste...however, it was still a good beverage...
