All hail Black Cab

Brewed with the knowledge of London's oldest family brewer, Fuller's Black Cab is a rich, dark stout that transports you to a time gone by. London was famous for stouts in the 19th century – and we're on a journey to make that the case again.

A pick-me-up pint

Inspired by tradition, Black Cab revives one of London's oldest beer styles while celebrating another of the capital's great icons. Black cabs are everywhere in London but this one is special; a deliciously complex brew that ranks as one of the world's finest stouts.

Brewer's notes

Black Cab pours a near jet-black colour with hints of coffee, chocolate and roasted malts on the nose. Dark in the glass, it's lighter on the palate – with red berry notes and mild hops meeting chocolatey, malty character on the way to a delicious dry finish.

Food pairing

Chocolate tart and the chocolate notes of Black Cab – total indulgence.

Chocolate tart: chocolate, coffee, roasted and burnt biscuit character of the beer perfectly mirror and complement the chocolate of the dessert. The sweet red berry notes will contrast the bitter chocolate, and there's a long and dry finish where you'll again enjoy coffee notes and a mild bitterness.
