Dorwart (2443) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - NOV 4, 2004
Decent sized head. Creamy on top. Light carbonation and decnt lacing. Rich aroma with coffee, dark chocolate, some hops and a hint of toasted marshmallow. Color is a very dark reddish black. Flavor is very roasty. Lots of roasted grains, more coffee. Flavor is a little thin. Dry palate. Finishis dry and bitter with a nice lingering roasted aftertaste. A good porter but I donít think that it should be rated as high as it is.

UPDATED: NOV 4, 2005 REVIEW #1. Very smooth, dark porter without an aggressive bite which can be a turn off. Nice bitter finish leaves you with nothing but satisfaction.

jzzbassman (1523) - New Albany, Mississippi, USA - NOV 1, 2004
Poured dark reddish black with a good looking tan head. Aroma of chocolate malt and coffee, which was evident in the flavor profile as well. Great mouthfeel, with a nice amount of bitterness in the end.

Bottled. Pours very dark, average sized light brown head. A roasty, faintly coffelike, pleasing aroma. Creamy and smooth; very smooth finish. Tasty.

pobenohne (504) - Northern Liberties, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 29, 2004
12 oz bottle. Dark ale, modest head, decent lacing. Roasted, dry, bitter beer, a little brother to Guiness. Silky finish.

RichardGretton (4423) - 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 (8837) - 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...)
