Rich mahogany brown tinged with ruby. London Porter isn't as dark as some porters; less than bright light travels through it fairly easily. The head is pale toffee in color and has a pitting surface. It deflates to a thin film and leaves better than average lace.

The nose features roasted malt with a great deal of black coffee and a modest amount of chocolate. Flavor mirrors aroma, but isn't very deep or rich. Things start out well enough, then fall just a little flat thanks to a thinner than expected mouthfeel that still manages a little light creaminess.

Fuller's London Porter is a solid English porter. Sure, it's much better than average, but it doesn't quite live up to the hype as far as I'm concerned. If you can manage it, get your hands on Great Lakes Edmund Fitzgerald Porter. Now *that* is an amazing brew.

3.54/5  rDev -15.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a bottle into a snifter at around 45°F

Appearance: Brown with a mahogany tent when put up to the light. Small off white head

Smell: Sweet caramel malt and toffee

Taste: Identical to the smell

Mouthfeel: Medium body; slight bitterness and goes down smooth

Overall: I shouldve known what I was getting into after trying Anchor Porter the other week. This was just too sweet with not enough coffee notes. I prefer American style porters all the way (Founders, Smuttynose, Eddy Fitz)
