COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask: Seasonal - Winter and Spring.
Smooth and satisfying, this example of an historic style of beer derives its rich, chocolatey character from a blend of Brown and Chocolate malts in the brew. Its notable coffee notes and creamy finish make it a wonderful accompaniment to many sweet foods Ė especially chocolate pudding. 5.4% ABV.

NOTE: Most Fullerís beer in the US is served by handpump kegs and not a cask. Ask your server.

Cask at Mahars. Pours a nice dark brown with a great head. Extremely thick feel for a cask, flavor is mild and sweet, slightly tart.

reakt (950) - Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 2, 2007
UPDATED: FEB 5, 2010 In the past week Iíve had two bottles, a gravicask version @ St Albans Fest and also cask at JDW. I know JDW isnít exactly the best place for cask ales with all the sparkler business but I have to say it did look quite nice. I was not impressed with the gravicask at all, I found it quite thin and bland and gave it quite low scores, however the one at JDW was pretty good. Dark brown with a thick, lasting malty head. Nose of roasted malts, cocoa, yeast and coffee. Taste is much the same with some nutty caramel notes and hoppy finish. Decent texture in the mouth. Iíll prolly get caned for saying this on here but I actually prefer the bottled version. Will soon be on cask at my local Fullers pub so will re-rate at that point. (7,4,7,3,16)
Re-rate:
@ the Shooting Star, Liverpool St.
Was lovely this time around, Iíd say the best Iíve had to date. Poured jet black with a small beige head, the roastyness of the malts really stood out. Still had the cocoa and coffee notes but the mouthfeel was just sublime. In this condition, itís a world class beer!

Backlog. Fullerís beers are always iconic and the cask-version of london porter should stand as an example to all other beers in this category.

Pours clear, dark brown with no head or lacing. Aroma is chocolate and dark, lightly roasted malt. Light, juicey mouthfel. Fruit forward with a very roast flavor. Slightly nutty as wel with a full, wet finish.

Dark reddish brown colour with firm light brown head. Smell of roasted coffee and barley malts, with some caramel notes. Taste is similar with low carbonation and medium bitterness, little sweet/hoppy finish, but in comparison with bottle somehow watery. But still great porter.

Porter-like appearance with a good head. Chocolate and coffee in the scent. Watery with some dryness at the end. Berries and milk chocolate in the mouth. Good.
