12 oz bottle. Dark ale, modest head, decent lacing. Roasted, dry, bitter beer, a little brother to Guiness. Silky finish.

RichardGretton (4377) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 28, 2004
Very dark body and head, and a stiff musty aroma with a very , very, very dry and slightly thick flavour. Overall OK, but slightly overrated.

elnadeau (786) - Laguna Niguel, California, USA - OCT 28, 2004
Dark appearance with ruby highlights, aroma of coffee and chocolate. Flavors of coffee, fruit, toffee and a hint of smoke are well balanced, making for a smooth experience and nice finish. One of the better porters Iíve tried, really gets good near the bottom of the glass as it warms.

leaparsons (8650) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 28, 2004
Bottled. Very dark with a fairly large beige head. Aromas are earthy, roasted malts, coffee with some licourice. You really have to get your nose to the beer to get the full aroma! Flavours are dry, oaty roast malts, earthy with some sweetness and chocolate. Fruity and dry on the finish. Porters can sometimes be a little thin - this isnít. Come on Fullers, make a bottle conditioned version.

nmoskop (79) - Arizona, USA - OCT 25, 2004
Pours very dark, but not quite as dark as Anchor or Stone porters with a roasted toffee aroma. Crisp on the tongue and in the mouth, with a lingering caramel, cafe aftertaste. This is my first try and Iíd say itís a toss up between Fullerís and Anchor for my top porter of choice. Iíll def. have to see what else fullers has to offer. Great Brew.

UPDATED: DEC 7, 2004 First, let me say that this is one badass looking bottle, mostly black and big. Poured into Samuel Smith Imperial pint glass. Pours black with red at the edges, thin creamy tan head that lasts on top. Smell is chocolate, coffee with cream, light hops and paper, similar to an Oatmeal stout. Very cream mouthfeel that feels excellent. Sour/bitter in the beginning. As it gets further along, there is chocolate, dirt, and a little sourness with a dry coffee finish. Easily the best porter Iíve had. (Iíve since had Alpha Klaus, though this is more to style...)

This was my first tasing of this beer. I have not had much from this company before. Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle the beer poured a dark black color with a large tan head. Barely any light shines through itís murky depths. The aroma is strong with chocolate. The texture is thick and oily. The flavor is heavy and thick with malt and chocolate. There is a light bitterness on the finish. The beer is overall much sweeter than I expected. I think that this helped endear it to me.

Well what can I say this porter is damn good, not quite as flavorful as MacTarnahans Bourban Cask BlackWatch porter but still really good, this will probabvly end up being my second highest rated Porter. Creamy Beige head and thick lacing. Sweet chocolatey aroma. Smooth and rich taste in mouth, lots of coffee and chocolate flavor, excellent.
