Poured into a beer mug.
A: Pours a very dark red body with a one-finger, mocha colored head that features decent retention and lacing.
S: Some roast, caramel, brown sugar, chocolate, and toffee. This smells amazing, to be honest.
T: Very roasty up front, featuring caramel and coffee sneaking up on the back end. I will say, the coffee finish is a little disagreeable with me, but otherwise, it's great tasting.
M: Nicely creamy, medium bodied, yet it features high carbonation, as well. Good combination. The finish isn't that dry, which helps keep the bitter aftertaste in check.
O: Though I can't justify buying this stuff everyday at $13 a six pack, this is still a great session porter overall. Thumbs up.

This is the best beer I've ever tasted. I love porters and Fuller's London Porter is the Porter all other Porter's want to live up to.
I know. You never want to say one beer is the best. You want to keep searching for the perfect beer. The fun is in the hunt. I'll say this is the Pest beer I've tasted so far. But just as I'm getting sick of the coffee and chocolate added flavoring, this one blends the tastes right without tasting like their just adding fake flavorings. Yes, you've got the tastes of chocolate and coffee and maybe a little dark honey or whatever, but what I really taste is a great heavy (as in rich), complex Porter without the heaving overpowering flavors added.
This Porter just blends the flavors together so they just flow over the palette to make a smooth, velvet flow of deliciousness.
