Beer Review – Fuller’s London Porter

On a recent trip to my local purveyor, I picked up a bottle of Fuller’s London Porter as a part of a mixed six. From the Fuller’s site:

London Porter captures the flavors of the original entire brews perfectly, although you won’t find a cloudy pint these days! Smooth, rich, and strong (5.4% alcohol by volume), London Porter is brewed from a blend of Brown, Crystal and Chocolate malts for a creamy delivery balanced by traditional Fuggles hops. Definitely worth a sip if you fancy something stronger and darker than coffee!

I found the London Porter to have the following characteristics.

  • Appearance: Black with light foam and good lacing.
  • Aroma: Sweet malt, chocolate and coffee.
  • Taste: A little thinner than a Guinness with a really great blend of chocolate and coffee and a slightly burnt finish.
  • ABV: 5.4%

I had never had a Fuller’s and was pleasantly surprised by the London Porter. This was a very good beer.

    • If you are a fan of that rich chocolate & coffee flavor, you won’t be disappointed. It might not be as thick or heavy as other chocolate porters or stouts, but I really liked the London Porter.
