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.

Marduk (7598) - Reval, ESTONIA - JAN 19, 2016
Cask @Black Door, Helsinki. Deep brown-ruby red color. Medium size, firm dusty tan head, stays forever (I mean literally when I take last sip the head is still there!). Chocolate, roast, sweetish, tiny bit of grain in aroma. Dark chocolate, deep roast, coffee, very mild hops and grain in taste. Long lasting roasted chocolate malts in aftertaste. So smooth and tender on tongue. Absolutely mind blowing quality! Orgasmatron!

Iíve not always been the biggest fan of Fullers beers and Iím really a cask enthusiast at heart, so Iíd never gone out of my way to try Fullers London Porter from a pasteurised bottle. So, when Fullers released a cask version, for a sadly limited period, I was very keen to try it. And I was not disappointed. Itís rich and dark, and fruity, and chocolaty, and roast malty. Full bodied, but smooth. Even more impressive, it worked very well as a session beer. At least, I had four pints of it and they slipped down very easily indeed. It just goes to show that Fullers can make a hugely impressive beer when they put their mind to it. Just a shame that they release it on cask so infrequently. Wonderful stuff. Cask (handpump), at The Sanctuary, Westminster, London.

larsga (7509) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 18, 2007
Small beige head. Deep dark red body, barely translucent. Soft delicate roasty licorice aroma. Soft sweet chocolate and licorice taste with earthy delicate roasted almond notes. Soft, smooth mouthfeel. Some fruitiness, some coffee. Dry roasted almonds aftertaste lingers. Very delicate and clear. Nice! (0.5pt cask at Churchill Arms.)

SaintMatty (7300) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JAN 12, 2009
Cask (Guide Dog, Southampton) - Black in colour. The aroma features chocolate, coffee and some liquorice hints. The taste is unbelievably smooth and moreish with coffee and chocolate featuring prominently. Itís delicious and whilst the bottled version is good, this is so much better. Superb.
