Fuller's London Porter

Fuller, Smith and Turner plc

England

It's been years since I had this beer, and I don't know why. Perhaps it's because it tends to be on the expensive side, and I'm a cheap bastard. But a guest on the forums recently wondered aloud why we hadn't reviewed it, so this last weekend I ponied up the ten bucks for a sixer. Man this was good! Jet black in the glass. Wonderful malty sweet aroma. Flavor was robust malts with just a hint of hoppiness. An absolutely splendid beer. It didn't hurt that we were gathered as a family putting up the Christmas tree as James Taylor's soothing voice caressed a few seasonal tunes on the stereo. If you like porters, do yourself a favor and try Fuller's. Absolutely outstanding.
