|I think that phpBB3 is a good choice: it's opensource, the development team has been around for long enough to prove that they are not dependent on one prima donna, and it's in active development i.e. security problems are fixed when found and the anti-spam war is being actively fought. I didn't much like the theme chosen for the Garritan site (purely my subjective feeling about it), but just about everything in phpBB3 is customisable - the look, the layout, everything, so that could change.|
I'm giving some links to various large BBs that use it, but look very different to each other - would be interested to hear other people's opinions about which they prefer.
The Audi TT Forum
Ars Technica Forums
Art of Problem Solving
Hope this post doesn't get blocked as spam because of all the links.

|What I like, is that -|
1) A forum looks “pleasant”, “inviting”, “friendly”, “not boring”.
This is mostly a matter of colour choices and layout (= dimensions), but perhaps also a matter of font choices.
2) A forum looks “unique” - not like hundreds of other forums.
This. too, is a matter of colours, layout and fonts.
It is definitely a matter of taste, but “Joomla Forum” and “Arts of Problem Solving” look best to me.
The other forums give me the feeling of “boring”, “looking like hundreds of other forums”.
