UPDATED: OCT 19, 2004 Rich flavor, the chocolate malts are definitely dominant. Reminds me of ice cream. If you're in the mood for a rich, dark beer, this goes down quite nicely.

UPDATED: MAR 31, 2004 Wow. Avery top notch porter. Does not get much better than this. Tons of flavor yet not as overpowering as a stout. Great brew

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 17, 2004
Very dark brown pour, borderline black. Rich and creamy tannish head, and sheets of fine lacing. Very pleasing aromas of chocolate, roast malts, a woody aroma as well, maybe oak, and the Fuggles come through a bit. A slight hint of caramel in there, too. Chocolate malts dominate the flavors followed by the caramel and roasted malts. There is almost a coffee like character there along with that oak that was in the aroma. Nice and creamy palate, thick, rich body and a wonderful chocolate filled bitter finish. This is a damn fine example of a porter, and I'm extremely happy it's available here again.

UPDATED: NOV 7, 2007 Thereís a dearth of Baltic porter in Canada now so I decided to try some of the British offerings so I got six Fullers at the local. I canít say I like it as much as the sweeter, fuller bodied, stronger Baltic porters but this is a very good example of the traditional British porter and a superbly produced beer with excellent quality. Iím quite satisfied with this as an interim substitute. This impressive embossed bottle had a freshness date and write up on the beerís awards. Poured a luxurious rich clear dark mahogany looks almost cola- ruby when glass held against a strong light. Large cascading puffy brown head that stayed for a while then dissipated to a beige lace that stayed to the end of the drink. It has a moderate amount of effervescence . Smells of chocolate and Caramel with hints of wine-like berry. Starts rather sharp to the tongue accented with dry hops and carbonation then builds into a creamy medium-full bodied mouth feel punctuated with a balance of musty chocolate semi sweetness and hops...finishes smooth with a pleasant dry-cocoa after taste that is not as tinny as dry stouts. All in all a very good drink and a fine porter.

Yet another that slipped under my radar - had this one SO many times. Solid product. Joe, why did you slight this one? Did it fuggle with your mind? Soft, luscious, and full of flavor. No problem drinking this one.

Very dark brown with a nice medium beige head. Strong roasted malt and coffee aroma. Nice coffee, malt, and chocolate flavors. Medium body, moderate carbonation. Very nice.

My favorite porter, by far, and one of my favorite beers of any style. Wonderful coffee- like taste, perfectly balanced. There is no better tasting beer that I can think of. Medium body, not as thin as many other porters. Sometimes hard to find fresh around here, but when I do, it's a joy to behold.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - MAR 5, 2004
DraftAlmost black pour with a minimal head. Kind of thin mouthfeel and not enough hoppiness to be a good porter. Sweet, sticky and chocolate all the way around. Nice lacing.

UPDATED: AUG 4, 2009 Wow, this was incredible. Aromas of chocolate and coffee from beginning to end. Head was a thick cocoa pillow of goodness. Flavours the same, with dark chocolate and espresso, with a bit of vanilla bean. Very creamy and smooth in the mouth. Body was an attractive dark brown. Go out and try this one!

sayravai (4667) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 27, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 19, 2007 (Bottled) Very dark reddish brown with a large, beige and foamy head. Quite strong, a bit earthy aroma of roasted malt, lots of coffee, salty licorice and hints of smoke. Burned-roasted-malty flavor with smooth dark coffee, and a sweetish-malty breeze in the middle. The finish is roasted and slightly ashy with medium bitterness. Very smooth, medium to full-bodied palate with soft carbonation. Definitely one of the best British brews. Truly excels in achieving a perfect balance between sweet maltiness and ashy burnedness, while being low-ABV and enough earthy-licoricey to be interesting flavorwise.
