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.

This beer rocks. Aroma of cocoa and coffee, caramel and brown sugar. Beautiful, very dark, sparkling ruby hue. Medium sized, creamy, tan head. Mostly lasting with excellent lacing. Flavors of roasted nuts smothered in dark chocolate, toffee, buttery caramel. Perfectly balanced. Not sweet. Slighty salty, rich with hints of espresso on the backside. Lively carbonation. Full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel. Long, slightly bitter and salty, dry finish. Excellent Porter. Another triumph from Fullers.

Somewhat disappointed, given the ratebeer reputation of this one. I found the flavor to be rather thin. It had pleasant roasty chocolate malt notes, and hints of coffee flavor, but just not enough to make it really interesting. Also found it to have a slightly chalky aftertaste which wasnít terribly bad, but wasnít a good thing either.

Very dark and rich. Pours with a coffee-like roasted aroma and a thick tan head. The flavor is minimally sweet but plenty robust and smooth. This porter is very well rounded and a great example of the style.

UPDATED: FEB 16, 2005 Sweet and chewy nose is your first clue that this is going to be a tasty brew! Smooth & rich mouthfeel is very enjoyable on the tongue. Chocolate-caramel-coffee with a tinge of rich hoppiness. Sugary malts make it a little cloying, but the flavors that stick to your mouth counteract that negative. This beer is so damn flavorful, in all the right ways. Cask at Falling Rock: Smooth and nicely balanced. Rich and roasty. Big chocolate exudes throughout. Wholesome yeast note with a light fruitiness (prune and pear, perhaps).

Well, the commercial description says it all. This beer is full of flavor but light in body. Nice.

A very nice beer with lots of flavor. Excellent dark brown porter color with a nice aroma. Easy to drink as it is not overpowering. Crisp smooth and precise. I really enjoyed the draught version of this.

Roasty smell with coffee aroma,a deep brown like a high school freshmanís first dime bag it. A very light head. The fire department was too late, it is oh so burnt and i like it.
