At 4.5% ABV and 500 ml, this is a beer which shouldn't require you to call a cab after a bottle. But if you choose to do so anyway, call Fullers Black Cab. On to the beer:
The beer is black with ruby red hues along places as it sits in a glass. A decent head sits on top, okay retention and a few squirts of lacing. The aroma is soft, and at first is hard to get. The nose has a little molasses and a touch sweet. However, the beer is not as shy regarding its taste. It has a good overall flavor, complimented with molasses, unsweetened chocolate, raisins, and soft yeast. Furthering the joy is its light body and gentle carbonation.
No Black Cab for me to take me home after one of these, but I would tackle another bottle. A good lighter, easier drinking alternative to the brewery's London Porter.
