Poured from the bottle, a rich brown color with a quickly-diminishing off-white head. Malty aroma with notes of toffee, chocolate, and some fruit. The flavor is malty and smooth. The flavors roasted malt, chocolate, and plum combine to create a rich lingering mouth feel. Perhaps the best porter I have ever had. Itís great that this is easily accesible.

zsb19 (168) - Cincinnati, Kentucky, USA - APR 24, 2006
UPDATED: MAY 1, 2006 Nice dark color with thin tan head that lingers for just a bit. Excellent aroma of coffee and chocolate. Bittersweet chocolate and coffee with a rich, full-bodied taste. Slightly sweet aftertaste that doesnít last long. Tastes like a thicker stout with a thinner mouthfeel that goes down very smooth. Best porter Iíve had so far.

wanderingman (54) - Guelph, Ontario, CANADA - APR 24, 2006
UPDATED: JUN 25, 2006 Rich dark colour similar to a stout, but not as thick. Strong taste with a hint of coffee and chocolate. Nice finish with no real lingering aftertaste. A decent porter.

A very dark brown color with a ruby tinge. Somewhat small, off-white head that diminishes rather quickly. Nose is raosted malt with chocolate backing it up. Flavor is a burnt chocolate and a roasted coffee flavor with a slight inappropriate acetic/vinegar taste. Hop bitterness really only a faint flavor in the profile. Palate is lively and mostly smooth with a slight watery texture. Finally it finishes with a short and bitter-sweetness. I really donít see the reall attractiion to this beer; it is a decent beer, but not overly interesting and not overly drinkable. The acetic flavor may be from oxidation from the long travel, but even without, Iíve had numerous porters that I prefer to this one.

Fullerís London Porter has a well deserved spot atop the competitive Porter category. Very bold malt balanced with hops and dark as sin, and the smoothness! Oh, the smoothness. An excellent porter, towards the top of my list, but the Sinebrichoff and Rogue Mocha are just a wee bit better. However, you can find Fullerís everywhere, and the other two are harder to get.

Bottle. Pours black with a nice tan head. Chocolate, malt, and coffee aromas. Very nice flavors. Lots of coffee and oatmeal overtones. A little nutty i found too. Finishes warm and smooth. Very good beer.

Excellent porter. Caramely malts with a very faint hint of hop bitterness. Mouthfeel was a bit watery though.

henrikb (1263) - Aarhus, DENMARK - APR 16, 2006
Black body, fast away creamy head leaving laces; Huge nose with character and depth: milk chocolate, smoked malt, dark roasted coffee beans and walnuts; A very full body again with loads of bitterness, great amount of carbonation; Very bitter finish with great length, loads of bitterness that grows with the length of the finish: Coffee, burnt chocolate, licorice, burnt nuts. Strange balance between nose and body.

Bottled. Dark ruby red colour, mediumsized brown head. Soapy, roasted caramellish malts in aroma, with dark chocolate and toffee in it also. Flavour is roasted malts, dark chocolate, while the aftertaste is like espresso coffee with hints of chocolate and caramel.

Had this at a beer tasting in Philadelphia and at least some of the tasters liked this best ... better than the 1845 or the 2005 Vintage. Big chocolate and coffee nose, dark almost black with a firm head that vanishes, leaving good lacing. Big taste for a porter ... chocolate, coffee, dark malt, and enough hops to provide a good bitter balance and a good bitter finish. Good mouth feel as well. Porter by far not my favorite style of British ale, but this one works very well.
