The first sip betrays my nose. The dominant flavors are chocolate malts with no hint of vinegary sourness. Any hops are in recession too in this full, unsweet chocolate body. As the liquid warms the chocolate sweetness becomes more pronounced and is almost syrupy at the finish.
I have long preferred Porters to Stouts and Fuller’s London Porter is a great one to prefer.
Grade: 4.9 out of 5 pints
Here's a funny photo I found while searching for London Porter images.
