PhrankSlovacek (54) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - APR 5, 2004
Pours dark brown, with a thick tan head. Strong coffee, roasted aroma. Coffee, roasted malty, creamy flavor. This beer is excellent. One of my favorites.

kwoeltje (2233) - Manchester, Missouri, USA - APR 5, 2004
(bottle) Black with quickly fading tan head. Aroma of coffee. Flavor initially is coffee with hints of black chocolate. Finish is somewhat smokey and bitter with definite tobacco notes (like an expensive cigar). Excellent.

Rastacouere (6148) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 5, 2004
Dark brown body, almost no head, what is there is tan and leaves fast. You really have got to let this warm to appreciate the flavors. The nose is very chocolatey with vanilla and dark fruits. Palate is slightly grapey vinous with lots of plums, chocolate and a nice restrained roasty bitter finish. Hints of coffee and licorice in the finish. Smooth medium mouthfeel with friendly cleaning carbonation. Complex malt flavors as it warms and remarkably balanced.

Description by company is pretty accurate. Smooth,strong, rich and creamy, its very good. Poured out of bottle with no head. I like it.

MullMan (1099) - New York, USA - MAR 31, 2004
thinnish light tan head. nice strong coffee/espresso aroma. a little bit leather smell too. lacing has long hang time. black at center, amber only at the far corners. nice coffee start, then hop, then burnt malt. me likey.

Sven (229) - Lancaster, California, USA - MAR 30, 2004
Thick, black and chewy. Smells of strong black coffee from two feet away, upon closer inspection bakers chocolate is predominant. Tastes as good as (and just like) it smells. Coffe and chocolate dominate, hops claw and srcatch their way through but do not overpower. Mouthfeel is thick and complex, leaves the sensation of a good desert in its wake. Phenomal beer worthy of its praise.

rhapsouldize (174) - Phoenixville, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 27, 2004
UPDATED: APR 3, 2004 Pours a rich brown with a hint of red. Generous creamy tan head. Roasted coffee bean and chocolate aroma with a malty twinge. Medium-bodied and smooth on the palate. Mocha and chocolate malty overtones, but I think it would taste better with a little more hops.

Beer Snob (501) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 27, 2004
A nice brew - beautifully black, nice malty aroma good mouthfeel... but the taste was a bit weaker than expected. A fine porter, but doesn't deserve its high rating here.

Wheatsheaf (104) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 25, 2004
Bottle. Dark mahogany-brown, almost black. Chocolatey, roasted malt aroma. Medium-full body, moderately carbonated. Some caramel notes beside the more obvious roasty, dark chocolate flavours. Some hop bitterness at the finish, which could use more length. An enjoyable and tasty beer thatís quite good, but not great.

Christian (11421) - Odense, DENMARK - MAR 25, 2004
UPDATED: JUN 17, 2008 Black with rathershort lived, bubbly off-white head. Rich aroma dominated by caramel, licorice, malt and coffee. Flavour continues the coffee theme, with lots of bitterness, a hint of smoke and a long aftertaste of chocolate and coffee. Ratebeerwise this should be in the mid range, but I just love it so much thereís no way to rate it lower. I apologoze to the fine Englishmen who dislike Fullerís pub strategies (for good reasons), but when they put the porter in a bottle or can and send it abroad, they are onto something...
