Dark brown with a dark beige head. Very malty aroma with dark chocolate notes. A little caramel sweetness in the taste, followed by roasted coffee and medium bitterness at the end.

Poured with large light brown creamy head with some large bubbles in amont the tiny ones. It was mostly diminishing and exhibited some very nice lacing. Can only see through this brew if I hold it right up to a light source and then it has a very dark dark plum type of color. Looks very nice. Aroma is of coffee, raisin, chocolate, and licorice. Initial flavor was lightly dry and slightly bitter. Finish is moderately bitter and drying with a nice long duration. Great aftertaste. Body is full and texture is syrupy with soft carbonation. Finish has a very very light alcohol presence. I don’t taste a lot of complexity here. The beer is very up-front and candid about what it wants to taste like. Palate is exceptionally smooth. Very nice and well balanced porter.

UPDATED: JAN 11, 2006 Bottle. Dark brown, thick tan head. Malty aroma with coffee, chocolate and caramel notes. What I really enjoy about this is the awesome taste of English licorice. Excellent porter

BeerandBlues2 (12045) - Escondido, California, USA - NOV 3, 2005
Bottle. Pours deep brown, almost black with an edgy tan head and tiny fizzy bubbles on top. Fragrant floral hop and sweet caramel chocolate aroma, slightly roaste malt and molasses notes. Dark and bitter roasted coffee, chocolate malt, a bit smoky with fruit hops, chalky chocolate and a lingering bitter hop aftertaste. Dark and thin, silky and fizzy palate.

Robe noire aux reflets brun acajou surmontée d’une mousse blanche qui s’estompe. Arômes de café et de diacétyl. Saveurs de caramel, de beurre, de sirop d’érable et de chocolat.

Pours black with a large brown frothy head. Very chocolately aroma with caramel, coffee, vanilla, and floral hops. Excellent flavors of fudge, coffee, and licorice along with very well balanced hops bitterness. Extremely smooth and creamy on the palate with a very pleasurable mouthfeel, but it is a bit thin. Overall, I can tell why this porter is rated so high. I’ll have another!

Just so damn good. A wonderful session beer. The slight diacetyl yeast character is delightful, manifesting as a slightly butterscotchy finish. Incredibly balanced. Nice use of chocolate malt and fuggles to create a dryness to go with the malty yeasty sweetness. A classic.

DrBayern (1139) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - OCT 23, 2005
Pours a beautiful, almost opaque, dark mahogany with a tan head that clings to the glass with some nice lacing. Malty, roasted aroma with hints of coffee. Smooth, full mouthfeel, almost chewy. Flavors of roasted malts and coffee, fulfilling the promise of the aroma. Finish is refreshingly dry, with a lingering mild bitterness. Beautifully balanced, just a wonderful and classic porter.

There was an air of overwhelming when i saw this in sainsburies, being rated as the best beer in britain, is a high status to have. (actually i stand corrected not the best beer in britian). Aroma is smoked and roasted malt, with coffee and pale malt notes. Taste is very similar with a roasted long finish, drish too. Well to say im disapointed may be about right, this is a decent beer, but it lacks complexity, yeasiness and a good few other things that need to be had to make a good beer in my eyes.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 22, 2005
A Mes rate: Aroma of choclate milk and coffee with some slight vanilla. Almost black in the body with a rocky light brown head that lasts a little better than most of the other Fuller’s I have tried. Flavour is roasty chocolate malts and more coffee. Very creamy and drinkable. Well balanced but not overly complex but hey, it is pretty fine stuff.
