Bottle; Poured a jet-black color with a nice light brown head. The smell is of a great malt mix with caramel standing out. The flavor followed the same malt mix with chocolate, caramel and roasted nuts detected. Full bodied with a great creamy texture.

This is a classic. Well-balanced chocolate, smoky coffee, and some toffee. It got me through an otherwise boring summer, so it will always have a place in my heart.

Dark chocolate and roasted grain aroma. Huge light brown head with good lacing. Very dark brown colour. Flavour is slightly sweet with moderate bitterness. Soft, creamy texture with a long finish.

Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - AUG 15, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 24, 2006 Re-rate. Bottle from Waitroise in Bath, if memory serves me. Red-brown with a layer of dirty beige foam. Toast, coffee, and Cheeriosģ. Breakfast! A nice husky grainy aroma. A touch of sourness, but at a good level. Lots of chewy dark bread flavor--leaves a pleasant lingering dry toast flavor, mingled with a little bright sourness and earthy chocolate. Medium body, enough to feel hearty, but not thick. Quality and character within the framework of restraint.

(Rating from 8/15/2005, Falling Rock Taphouse, Denver) Very dark ruby with a smallish cap of head. Buttery-toffee aroma, with just a bit of roast. Buttery sweet flavor too, with a bit of sourness. Just a bit of burnt toast in the finish. A bit winey on the palate, but still fairly smooth. I had high hopes for this. Itís unique, but not in particularly good ways. I can tell my rating is way out of line for this beer. I will have to give it another shot sometime. (6,3,5,3: 13)

Quiver (140) - Augusta, Georgia, USA - AUG 15, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 9, 2006 Poors 1 hair above pitch black. Rich coffee malty body with a rich frothy head. Fantastic lace patterns. Somewhat sweet, very smooth and rich. Most porters get old after 1 or 2, this one keeps getting better. One of my top 3 favorite beers of all time.

Very dark red-brown, little head, just a ring of foam floating on still liquid. Aroma was strawberry, yeast, molasses and cocoa. Taste is chocolate, smoke, peat, malt, molasses, cherries and dark fruit. A wonderfully complex flavor. Mouth feel was flat but not too thin. Reminds me of St. Peterís Olde Style and Salopian Entire Butt, 2 porters I thoroughly enjoy. Because itís more of an old recipe style, meaning flat and sweet, it doesnít measure up to my Porter benchmark, Samuel Smithís Taddy, which is stronger, more carbonated, and fuller-bodied. As far as Fullerís goes, I still prefer their 1845 Ale.

Vanilla bean, sweet chocolate, bready malts and a slight hint of fruity esthers makeup the inviting aroma. The body has an almost nutty overtone that ties it together. The chocolate malt in this is just scrumptious, working nicely with the subtle roastiness and creamy mouthfeel. Very enjoyable from start to finish!

UPDATED: APR 30, 2009 Now this is what i like! Dark color but just enough to see through its dark ruby red color, beutiful red-brown head that laces through out the glass, and a sweet delicous taste that screams (yes, screams) LONDON PORTER!!! I like this beer alot!

rerate: if you can find this fresh on tap, almost untouchable...

Great porter, dark chocolate/coffee flavor, smooth and silky texture, very dark color (almost black), lingering finish that is almost too oily
