Mild burnt aroma. Deep brown/burgundy colour. Fairly thin bodied with an oily mouthfeel. A bit on the light side, but super mellow!!!

I actually did not like this porter. I think it had too little complexity in the palate and a bitter sweetnes wich I did not like. It might be necessary for me to taste it again and re-rate it.

A nice example of a good english porter. Not much special though about it.

Just tried this one at the Flagstaff beer festival. Made a point of having it early so I could actually remember tasting it. Best porter Iíve had. Flavor and aroma of chocolate, coffee and molasses. Full mouth feel, almost creamy. Highly recommended.

Looks great. Dark malt aroma and flavor, a little coffee. Roasty. This is the best porter Iíve had, but I have to say Iím not especially fond of porters. I have a lot of respect for Fullerís, I really like their ESB. I think Porter might be the only style I donít like.

Nice dense head. The beer itself is deep red-brown; this is what porter should look like. The flavor is nice; rich and roasty, not too complex. Excellent.

Pours a deep black with a tan head. Held up to the light reveals a ruby red center growing darker at the edges. Hints of coffee in the aroma.Flavor is roasted malt with a little sweetness at the end. Palate is very light with a touch of creaminess. Very good beer.

For the last couple of days Iíve been dreaming of a silky smooth porter, with a milky soft finish. After Sam Smithís Taddy Porter didnít fill the bill last night, I picked a bottle of London Porter today. If only Iíd bought this yesterday! This is a great brew. Some might call this almost a milk stout. Call it what you wish. Its great and Iíd buy it again no problem.
