Made in the style of the Victorian Age. This "Extra Stout Porter"is made with dark caramel & black malt delivering a delightfully smooth and rich flavor without a husky harsh finish at 5.9% ABV.

Black in color with an off-white head. Some roasted malt, dark chocolate, and a light floral note. Mild smoke, some coffee, and very mild burnt toast. There is a light sweetness to the flavor. A lot of roasted malt, some coffee, dark chocolate, and lots of green apple.

Tasted at the brewery while visiting the fam at Christmas. Nice malty sweetness with bitter behind. Drinkable for sure, but not my fave of the lot.

On tap at the brewery. This is the lighter version of their RIS. Pour is a murky brown with small head. Aromas of malt and a tinge of coffee. Flavor is watery with roasted malt. An o.k porter but could be much better.

On tap at the brew pub. Poured a nice deep brown color with an off-white head. Aroma was a bit of roasted malt. Nice roasty flavor but very smooth at the same time. This was a nice beer.

The pour is very good, nice dark brown that forms into a nice medium tan head. The smell is very good, sweet. The taste is lacking a little fo a london porter, not bad, just not as good as should be. Mouthfeel and drinkability are both good.

Full Circle is a very small brewery, and is finally starting to pick up a little. They are starting to bottle their somewhat standard "Cluster Fuggle" [which is interestingly not available on tap?] This Porter is perhaps even more of their standard. Nice typical porter, Dark brown color, fair head Nice malty balanced taste. Very drinkable, almost good enough for a session ale! Good Job Full Circle [ serving type: on-tap ]
