Fuller’s London Porter, is widely regarded as the World’s 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.

What a wonderful aroma - dark chocolate/strong coffee, roasted/burnt malts. A little smoky with a hint of alcohol. Dark brown with light brown head. Creamy, full-bodied texture with soft carbonation. Slightly bitter finish but a really, really good porter. Highly recommend.

A rather sharp dry note accents the rich dark malts of this brew, running strongly through a slightly less than full body. A splash of hops in the close. I had this at a dinner party where unbelievably spectacular food predominated and it didn’t quite hold up to the challenge. A fine beer nonetheless.

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - APR 28, 2002
A very deep garnet, chocolate head that fades quickly, lace is adequate, the nose is that of toasted grains, caramel and semi sweet chocolate. Sweet front, the top light, the finish is dry, hop bitter, lightly acidic, robust and quite a treat for us ’Dark Lovers’ , when the ’World’ is turning to the ’Light’, I will maintain the ’Dark’.

Tom Servo (424) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - APR 26, 2002
Pretty good, but a little lacking in the flavor department. Not a bad brew, but the flavor is a bit too burnt for my tastes. The aroma is nice, but I’ve had better.

This rich drink has an initially thick head. Dark colour with a huge chocolate smell. Strong, complex flavours combined with good strength and excellent, lasting finish. Great deep flavours.

SJP (483) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 21, 2002
I thought this to be a nice full bodied poerter, but lacking of any significant flavor to set it apart from other porters.

ToadMan (559) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - APR 21, 2002
Not nearly as good as Samuel Smiths Taddy Porter, this is too smokey and not nearly as silky and smooth as Sammy Smith. That said it is still a good porter, good maltiness and strong flavor.

A good porter, but not one of Fullers better beers. Nice malt and flavor but lacks a finish.

ultraspank (867) - Alverca, Lisboa, PORTUGAL - APR 14, 2002
Had a few bottles of this tonight. This brew pours a dark red brown. The huge rocky light brown head is fully lasting and leaves fair lacing. The big rich nose is predominately strong roasted coffee, with hints of caramel, dark chocolate, flowers, grapefruit, spices, toffee, butterscotch, licorice, cola, and alcohol. The warm flowery flavor is of course heavily bittersweet (coffee, coffee, and coffee) with a pleasant citrus inspired acidic bite in the middle. The finish is long, rich and bitter. The full creamy/syrupy body has lively carbonation and finishes complex - dry, astringent, and alcoholic. Another really nice porter.
