3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Weak aroma of roasted, chocolatey malt. Good head and overall appearance. Flavor makes up for faint aroma for sure - silky, lingering cocoa malts with nuttiness, coffee roast, and something else I cannot quite describe. Classy beer. Can be savored or sessioned. Great example of the style.
Kawa, czekolada, karmel i trochę nut chlebowych w aromacie. W smaku sporo paloności, czekolada, kaswa, kakao. Jest lekki kawowy kwasek, trochę słodyczy, bardzo niska goryczka.
Bardzo wodniste i takie zwyczajne, proste... a mimo to bardzo fajnie i przy tym niesamowicie pijalne. SimonBlok (760) - GRONINGEN, NETHERLANDS - NOV 17, 2017
33cl bottle at home. Appearance: dark brown with medium, off-white head. Aroma: dark malts, butterscotch, caramel and chocolate. Taste: above medium sweetness and pretty high bitterness. Notes of dark malts, molasse, dark bread, chocolate and hops. Palate: medium bodied, oily texture and medium carbonation. MetalNHopHead (2182) - Lincoln, Nebraska, USA - NOV 14, 2017
English-style Porter is an oft-traveled road, and Fuller's London Porter was one of the breweries to pave that path. This brew is pretty, dark, and deep. Near-opaque brown pour. Caramel, toast, toffee, and milk chocolate character. Silky smooth, mildly bitter, and superbly balanced. sethichlaus (6) - Lawton, Oklahoma, USA - OCT 31, 2017 does not count
Poured into seidel.
L: Nice khaki head with little retention. Deep dark ruby brown.
S: A milky sweetness, roasted malt
T: Sweet dark malt, chocolate, roast, light hop spice.
F: Pretty smooth, dry finish
Pretty typical of a classic English porter. Good stuff. jobe977 (170) - Töreboda, SWEDEN - OCT 29, 2017
Can (5,4%) from Systembolaget. Black with no real head. Aroma is a mixture of coffee and chocolate. An ok taste, somewhat roasted. Decent finish. Classic Porter-style beer. Not the best, not the worst. Pleasant!

Bottle. I must say, I'm not sure I understand the hype. It is a decent porter, it is not very sweet, you can get the Fuggle hops in there and still that deep malty, sometimes smoky flavour as well as grassy caramel. But I think there are much smoother, more deep and flavourful porters out there. Bill Becker (1773) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - OCT 16, 2017
From Oct 2005
Served from the 18.6 oz bottle, best by date of Feb 14, 2005 so....I'll try to get a fresher sample next time(Have had fresh samples before) and do an update if needed.
Pours extremely dark brown with a medium sized head that shrunk until there was only a fine layer on the top. The smell was all coffee and chocolate to me.
The taste was the same as the smell only reinforced. Lovely malty, chocolaty, coffee thing going on that made drinking this a real pleasure. Time doesn't seem to have hurt this one too much at all.

A bottle from Jason's near NCCU, drunk at home. Aroma: caramel. Appearance: hazy cola, head dissipates to nothing. Palate: medium-bodied and slick, soft carbonation, sweet and flavoursome finish. Taste: medium sweet and bitter, lots of coffee, a bit of chocolate. Very nice beer. kraddel (8875) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - OCT 10, 2017
Pours dark, caramelly brown. Small white head. Smell is faded chocolate, caramel, mild intensity. roasty. Taste is mild smokey, burt ( ashy) malts. rather intense. Faded coffee, hidden cocoa. not bad at all. Erzengel (9467) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - OCT 6, 2017
Smooth mild with a nice chocolate malty aroma. Easy to drink, mild smooth with lots of chocolate and roast. Great.
