What the brewers say: this tasty dark beer, from London's only traditional brewery, will transport you to the days when porters and stouts were Londoners' drink of choice. Now being rediscovered by today's discerning drinker, this style of stout delivers a rich full flavour from the chocolate malts in the brew, giving way to a satisfying creamy finish.
I’m not a regular stout drinker but will try anything once – particularly if it’s from Fullers who produce one of my favourite ales (London Pride). Not only that, but anything with black in the title piques my interest! Procured from a Londis in Westow Hill in Crystal Palace which had an impressive number of bottled ales. Not as creamy as say a Guinness but enjoyable still 4.2% A.B.V.
