Originating in London, this black ale owes it’s name to the porters who favored the robust brew. It evolved from the brown ales being brewed around London at the time and eventually gave rise to stout. London Fog pours into your glass like a murky Thames on a moonless night - jet black, capped with a tan head. This assertive ale is dominated by roasted flavors of black coffee and dark chocolate. It has a bracing bitterness from the combination of hops and roasted malts, with a dry bittersweet finish. The rich flavor can enliven a barbecue sauce or chili, and stands up well to strong cheeses such as aged cheddar or pungent Stilton.
