Poured from a 33 cl bottle into a standard pint.
A: Very dark brown. Pours a 1 finger, foamy brown-white head. Rising effervescence and pockets of carbonation clinging to the sides of the glass are pervasive. Slight spiderweb lacing.
S: Coffee, plenty of oak, and bittersweet dark chocolate.
T: Coffee beans, tea leaf, wood chips, peat, black licorice, and unsweetened bitter dark chocolate.
M: Hearty and very roasty. Lightly bitter finish.
D: Sip and savor.
Atmosphere is excellent. Dark hue, nice head, lots of carbonation, and some fair lacing. Nose is great combination of coffee, wood, and bitter dark chocolate. Complex combination of coffee and tea, wood and peat, bitter chocolate and licorice. Has a very roasted character to it. Overall, this is a great quaff.

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.
