Fullers : London Porter

LOOK: Pours a dark brown with amber hues.

SMELL: Roasted malt and toffee. Caramel.

TASTE: Nice caramelized malt flavor, a touch of peat like smoke. Dry English style noble hopping. Tea like hopping and toasty malts. Faint cocoa. Even balance.

FEEL: Medium bodied, good medium level of carbonation, lasting malty flavor with a suggestion of hop.

OVERALL: A classic beer. Maybe has lost a touch over the years, or it could be modern extreme beers stealing the spotlight, but there still is something to be said for simple, full flavored, modest ABV beers. I'd always be willing to include a few of these in a session.
