This is going to be one of those posts, where I feel like I am stating the obvious.
Seriously why did it take me so long to try this? Hands down Fuller’s has to make the best Porter out there. Edmund Fitzgerald is great, as is Founders’ Porter, but man they have nothing on this one.
As Fuller’s Describes it: “London Porter, is brewed from a blend of Brown, Crystal and Chocolate malts giving it creamy delivery balanced by traditional Fuggles hops.”
Man, there is so much roast and chocolate notes going on. Not to mention how supremely balanced it is, sweet but not too much, bitter but in a coffee kind of way. Smooth and velvety sipping, pure elegance really. It leaves you wanting another, and given the ABV (5.4%)this is pretty sessionable if you wanted to do that. Though I would rather savor them one at a time.
If you haven’t had it yet, you need to try it. Fall is here, and there is no better time for a fantastic Porter.
