Fuller's London Porter

I got an email this afternoon from an internet marketing blog that I like to read. In it, Jeremy Schoemaker (Shoemoney) tells his version of what a blog should be, and I can't help to completely agree all around 100%. And very funnily put.

Read the whole thing, it won't kill you and it is relatively short. But a few of my favorite excerpts. "People give me shit all the time for talking about my kids, strip clubs, getting drunk, losing weight, LOST. People say I need to stay on topic all the time. I guess they don’t know the topic of this blog is me."

Sound familiar to any of you readers who have been here before or actually (gulp!) subscribed to this site? I hope so, because Shoemoney is right on. I hope you enjoy my sarcasm and stories and that great beer is the reason to tell them over.

Fuller's London Porter brewed by the Fuller, Smith & Turner's Griffin Brewery in Chiswick, London, England is the topic of tonight's monologue. Nice aroma of coffee and chocolate malts. The flavors are decent, mainly tasting the same coffee and dark chocolate, but there is also an annoying burnt flavor everywhere. The aftertaste also has a good toffee flavor that lingers with that burnt sensation. I don't think this is even carbonated, but I could be wrong, and get ready, it is a little bit bitter too. (I know, how quite surprising for a British beer). Well, in the end, I wish the chocolate or something would've made this a little sweeter and that there was a little alcohol kick to it as well. Not nearly in the same class as favorite Young's Luxury Double Chocolate Stout (and yes, that's the closest comparison I have).
