Black brown lamost dark redish colour with firm head. Smell of roasted coffee and malts. The bitterness tops the ending. Very good stuff.

500 ml bottle. Today I read "84, charing cross road" so I was in the mood for a british beer, specially if itís called "London Porter". Fantastic smell, chocolate, pepper, malt. Dark brown color with low cream colored head. Great taste has well, very balanced and moderated dark flavours. Fantastic! One of the best dark beers iíve ever had. Run to try this one, sir.

Wow, indeed a contender for the title of "World's finest porter" although probably would not get my vote in the end. Anyway, pours an excellent mahogany accented dark brown, fluffy khaki head. Rich roasty and earthy hop aroma, very fresh and pleasant. The flavor is impeccably classic porter, coffee, chocolate malt, bitter fuggle hops, strong with a caramel creamer espresso finish. Biggest downside is the thin mouthfeel, did not achieve the creamy full-bodied texture as advertised and as I would have preferred. A great beer, just needed more body to match the full flavor; mouthfeel is the only aspect keeping this beer from greatness.

Dark brown color with brown head. Aroma is clear roasty malt with some sweetness in it. Taste is light bitter and a bit sweet, and it has a perfekt balance. Body is tiny bit too thin, and thatís the only negative Think to say about this beer. Very enjoyable beer.

Nice and dark, smooth initially with a bit of a caramel finish. No wonder it had such a reputation, it if well earned.
