Draught. Seems towards the end of the keg. No head. Aroma is classic porter, fairly roasty and astringent. Flavor follows that. Feel is watery, still, scratchy roast. Good and drinkable. Not overwrought.

Tap at fiddlers.
This porter is sweet and chocolatey without being an obvious dessert; more like something from southern tier than from Fullers, I’m afraid. Mouthfeel a bit thic for the style.

Dark brown color/ tan head. Mild roasted nut, coffee, ash aromas. Light to medium bodied. Coffee, medium roast malt, ash, overly astringent flavors--just ok

The more I try this beer, the more I like it. It has a moderate body to it, but is full flavored and finishes nice and roasty with a dry feeling. More roasty that a typical Porter, which is probably why I like this. More flavorful as it warms up.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a dark brown body, almost black, with a minimal light brown head. Handbottle, via brewolf. The nose is roasty and chocolaty with some light roast coffee and some minimal hops. The flavor is on the sweeter side with some rich milk chocolate and roastiness. Some moderate bitterness comes out on the finish from the green leafy hoppiness. The body is a touch thin with light fine carbonation. Some lingering burnt and roasty maltiness along with some burnt caramel. Pretty decent Porter, though the hops don’t mix real well with the chocolate sweetness.

Dark brown in color, clear with a thin head. Good dark roasty malt aromas. The chocolate and coffee flavors along with the malt where very tasty. Very solid beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft, WA Brewer’s Fest. Deep brown pour, small light brown head. Roasty, mild espresso nose on this. Upon sipping, it’s dry and slightly ashy, but not excessively so. Nut, chocolate, and coffee notes appear as well. Hops are balancing but not dominate, and are sprucey and herbal. Slightly thin on the body, though not watery tasting. Nice roasty porter.

Rich dark toasted chocolate nose, very full. Dark brown, small tan head. Very rich and full flavored with lingering notes of espresso, surprisingly a bit thin in body for all of that character. Roast forward.

Growler from the brewery. Pitch black with decent tab head. Nice aroma of coffee and nutty cocoa. Flavor is big roasted malt and a bit of biscuit. Great body and I really like the over 6% alcohol because it really balances out the whole brew well. Really nice beer. Looking forward to new styles from them in the future.
