Very dark appearance with a garnet edge. Toffeeish, roasted chocolate malt aroma shifting slightly to dark fruits. Exceptionally smooth, full bodied taste with subtle carbonation. Medium length finish.

UPDATED: JAN 11, 2005 Cask, hand-pump at the Swan in the Rushes, Loughborough. The best porter Iíve ever had, and one of the best beers, full stop. Malty, chocolatey aroma, with a superb, complex flavour of malts, caramel, chocolate, coffee and more. Full bodied, creamy. Fantastic. Bottle, 11/01/05 Question; Is the bottled version as good as the cask? Very close, but the cask has it by a nats.

Pours dark with a deep ruby shade when held to the a light. Light tan head with minimal retention (Possibly a bit colder than it should have been). Excellent aroma of chocolate with some hint of mocha and caramel. Full of body. Pleasant finish with minimal bitterness. An excellent porter!!

Well, what can I say? This is quite simply one of the best beers available on a regular basis in Ontario, and is a fantastic beer by any measure. Whatís even better is to be able to drink it on cask draft from Dora Keogh in Toronto. Itís an amazing multitude of flavours - nuts, coffee, chocolate, malt, caramel. Quite simply one of the best porters, and one of the best beers. Period.

UPDATED: JUN 12, 2014 Bottled. Thereís a lot of debate whether us British raters are more írealisticí when it comes to rating Fullersí products (and Sam Smiths) and that raters elsewhere think the beers are better than they are. I had this beer on cask many years ago and remember really enjoying it. Iíve looked for it on cask this Winter but to no avail, so I had to drink and rate the bottled version. Well in my opinion the US raters and others have got this right. It is a beautiful porter, full bodied, robust, call it what you want, but call it good (or even great). It is black as night and has a short-lived off-white head and leaves no lacing. The aroma is scrummy with loads of malts, lots of coffee and some chocolate. Those qualities are replicated to better definition in the taste. It is very full bodied, very flavoursome and very ídarkí tasting. Again coffee and burnt malts come through; together with a little chocloate. An excellent drinking experience. It doesnít matter that the beer is dead. Hell, I would wager that a BC version would not be as good, given the general quality of most English BCAs. This beer deserves its reputation on this site and its awards. I will continue to look for it on cask in my Fullers light part of England. Iíve heard it sells for a ridiculous price in the trade and therefore pubs have to sell it at inflated prices, but it may just be worth it. Score 4.4
Subsequent ratings scored 3.8, 4.1 and 3.8. Average becomes 4.0
