My god! Fullers "Outstanding" was my favorite stout/porter for a long time, but was instantly run down by the Black Cab and took the spot. Black Cab though not strong on the ABV like I would have preferred. The overall taste and after taste are great. This mid-body brew is great to try. Fullers is by far my favorite brand brew, under is Clown Shoe’s.

corkyrory66 (1859) - BELGIUM - JAN 31, 2017
Stout avec 5 malts d’orge différents, dont certains très grillés, et de l’avoine. Niveau abv de 4,5 %, et extraits secs à 11,5 %. Mon exemplaire était à 6 mois après sa date. Couleur noir violacée profonde, à l’opacité quasi totale. Mousse brun moyen, en nappage soyeux de surface. Arômes de café, chocolat, cappuccino, tabac brun, ganache. 1ère bouche souple à la très belle entame malt torréfié, charbon de bois. Arrière-bouche avec chocolat noir, tabac, et une pointe fumée très délicate. 2ème bouche très prégnante avec de superbes nuances, groseilles noires entre autre. Arrière-bouche longue, complexe. La longueur va travailler une intégration quasi parfaite de ces valeurs. Jambes lisses, longues. Levure boisée, belle ligne. Alcool correct, il travaille bien l’ensemble. Finale qui résume le tout. CONCLUSION : pour un stout basique, c’est exceptionnel, parce que tout y est : boisé, fumé, torréfié, tabac, café, chocolat, amertume .. et même le taxi noir de Londres !! Fuller is a winner !!

I stumbled upon this at RSVP Liquors in Portland, ME and had to try it. Fullers always puts out great products and this is no exception. Very flavorful, dark roasted malts that are put together to be so smooth. There is just a tough of hop to dry it out a little and there is a slight fruitiness, though I can’t tell what it is. One of their best!

Poured from bottle to glass. Rich, dark, pitch-black in color. A beautiful creamy two-finger foamy head. Looks every bit of an English stout. Very heavy bodied ale, nice balance between hops and malt. Easy stout, the palate is treated to many sensations, finishing dry and bitter. Overall, this is a wonderful example of an English stout.

London Black Cab • Aroma (10/10): Miel, fuertes caramelos, suaves flores, café y chocolate; toques cítricos lejanos. • Apariencia 4/5: o Cabeza (color, consistencia y duración):  Cabeza escasa, café oscuro, cremosa. Desaparece fácilmente dejando una escasa nata. o Cuerpo (textura, carbonización, partículas y color):  Completamente oscura. Más que la coca cola. No se puede apreciar ni partículas ni burbujas. • Sabor 9/10 (inicio, final y duración): o Inicio: Inicio ligero. Sorprendentemente insípido. o Final: bastantes umamis y dulces en los dientes. Ligero amargor. • Paladar 4/5 (Cuerpo, textura, carbonización, final). o Cuerpo ligero, cremoso, sin burbujas. Final ligeramente amarga y de corta duración. Resumen 18/20: Un Sabor muy balanceado. Sin ser hiriente al paladar, nos presenta una rica complejidad de aromas. Una cerveza digna de catarse. Se las recomiendo.

Pours dark mahogany with ruby highlights and a fluffy beige head. Chocolate, custard and apple crumble on the nose full mouthfeel with medium carbonation, toast, roast barley, camp coffee and treacle toffee. Dry roasty and a touch of dark fruit in finish. Quaffable and complex.

wlajwl (6657) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - FEB 27, 2013
Aroma is roasted malts, along with earthy and nutty notes. The flavor is roasted malts, heavy earthy notes, mild fruit undertones and a mix of acidity and bitterness in the finish.

Erzengel (8495) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - NOV 4, 2013
Danke an Sean! Tiefschwarz mit beigem Schaum. Der Antrunk ist karamellig-malzig. Sehr vollmundig. Im Hauptteil entfaltet sich die tolle Röstmalznote mit karamelliger Süße und leichter Säuerlichkeit. Der Nachgeschmack ist lang anhaltend, vollmundig, schöne Stout-typische leicht trockene Aromatik mit ganz geringer Herbe, die von der Röstmalzigkeit leicht übertönt wird. --> Toll!

I swear this is near-perfect beer. Poured from cool-looking pint bottle into nonic pint glass. Opaque dark brown colour, reddish at the edges, with beige foam, long-lasting with lace. Tart, toasty, bready, nutty, faint orange marmalade, black pepper, charred wood. Definite tartness like plum skins or sour cherries. Medium body and carbonation, well-rounded mouthfeel, just the right amount of residual caramel sweetness, nice session-strength alcohol, exquisitely complex aftertaste. Another mesmerizingly delicious Fullers brew, I could drink gallons. My wife has never enjoyed a single stout I’ve handed her, even she liked this one. If a cask of this is even better as I suspect, you Londoners are lucky devils.
