4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Very deep brown color with a great aroma of chocolate and a full creamy head. Intense roasted black malt flavors dominate. Underlying sweetness leads up to a smoky, bitter chocolate character with a good hop finish. Outstanding.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pretty thin looking body for a porter, 55% opaque. Head is tall and fluffy. Aroma is heavenly with milk chocolate, malt, and maple syrup. Mouth feel is medium bodied. Taste starts with sweet cream, then grows more complex adding a variety of chocolate flavors (sweet, milk & bittersweet), then roastiness and coffee. Aftertaste is also delectable with more chocolate, coffee, pit fruits, hickory and nutmeg. This is a very complex beer, but never overwhelming. It drinks easily and directly allowing the brain and taste buds to just enjoy the flavor. Purchased in a 500ml bottle at Chevy Chase Wine & Liquors in Washington, DC.

Best porter I have ever had. Full flavor and a very nice mouth feel make it a very satifying brew. It tastes like a regular porter but with all of the best flavors turned up a few notches.

UPDATED: FEB 6, 2008 This is one of my favorite Fuller products and favorite styles of beer. Pours a nice deep amber color with a good head. The look of this beer with a lamp behind it was picture perfect. The flavor was a perfect blend of sweetness and bitter. I buy this one regularly.

Dark maple syrup in color with a lasting-splotchy off-white head. Fantastic slightly overdone chocolate-chip cookie and milk aroma. Earthiness comes out upon warmup. Slight sweet with burnt malt coming out on the chocolate finish. Great porter.

Bottled. It poured with a medium sized tan head which was long lasting and contributed to the good lacing. Lots of chocolate and coffee with some underlying hoppiness. Lots of chewy flavors in this beer. I will try this again.

haha wow, this is a really good brew. there seems to be too much carbonation in the beer at first, but that quickly disolves. this is a very rich porter that is one of the best porters ive ever had. there is a reason it has a 4.15/5.00 great beer.

A really robust porter. I poured a dark brown/amber color with a nice biege head. Aroma had hints of malty goodness and sweet chocolate and caramel notes. Initial taste was robustly malty and finshed with a creamy coffee taste with a mildly sweet maple syrup notes. This beer was fantastic.
