DCopperfields (146) - New York, USA - JUN 24, 2004
Burnt amber to dark brown in color. Simple, froth and thck tan head. Ample lacing of the glass. Aroma is trifling at best. A hint of malt sweetness and a bit of fund. Taste is altogether better. Puckeringly slightly tart, backed by chocolate and roasted oats. Nice, medium palate makes this emminently drinkable.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 23, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 9, 2008 Medium brown hue with a tall, frothy, light tan head that has a scattering of larger bubbles. Licorice, earthy tones such as peat, near burnt popcorn and some butter all come across first and with great force. Oaky, dry, tannic as well. Oddly, I get some iodine as well. The hell? Is this a porter or an Islay single malt? OK, no, the similarities arenít strong to the point of confusion, but they are definitely present. Chocolate, light coffee, prunes and dates along the lines of more typical porter aromas. The flavour begins fairly sweet and tangy (like milk chocolate and salted butter mixed together) with a light nuttiness. Mid-palate finds a tinge of soft acidity and wanders into a still sweet finish with the illusion of dryness through roasted malts and perhaps some tannins. Buttery elements have all but disappeared at this point, but the odd peat and iodine aromas still lurk in the background. An unfortunate dose of soy sauce crops up with significant warmth. Perhaps itís a bit papery, too. The texture is a bit watery, carbonation soft...feels a little under medium-bodied. Somehow pleasant on the surface, but there are a lot of aromas sneaking around that Iím not to terribly fond of at the moment. 50cl bottle, bbe 17/08/08.

Pint bottle, goblet. Chocolate, coffee, wheat bread malt (M); dry, floral hops (L); oak, butter, smoke, prune aromas. Deep purple body with a creamy, tan, lasting head. Moderately sweet, moderately acidic flavor becomes a moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter finish. Lingering coffee aftertaste. Medium body, oily/watery texture, average carbonation. The bottom line is: a porter I enjoy?!? Wow, thatís a neat trick!

shadey (1987) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 21, 2004
Roast Roast and more Roast. Outstanding. Pours black wth a thin head. Rich and creamy with a smoked aroma and flavor that invades your senses. Plenty of coffee mixed in as well. I understand why everyone is so full of praise for this porter.

IndianaRed (2805) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 20, 2004
Dark, reddish brown. Little head that dissipates rather quickly. Very little lacing. Very nice sweet smell of plums, molassas. Stong smokey flavor, charcoal, dark roasted coffee comes through also. Very smooth feel, carbonation feels very fine. Slightly bitter but appropriate trailer. A justly highly rated Porter. Would be a regular in my fridge but for the $3.20 price.

HopsOrDie (687) - New Lenox, Illinois, USA - JUN 18, 2004
This beer didnít live up to the high rating it has been given. The flavors were very mellowed without any character standing out from the rest. Some roasted/burnt malty flavor with the balance of hops, some chocolate too. Faint leather smell in the nose. I would prefer Anchor or SN porters over this one.

crzybob77 (530) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUN 16, 2004
Dark blackish brown color. Rich roasted coffee aroma. Full, rich taste with some good hop flavor and roasted coffee and chocolate. This a great well balanced brew! Fullers makes one hell of a beer.

robertsreality (2460) - Minnesota, USA - JUN 15, 2004
Very Dark Coloring. Strong Beer. Heavy tastes of Chocolate and Coffee. Definitly worth trying this one.

jgentgesdo (681) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - JUN 13, 2004
Thick, tan head. Smells of coffee, chocolate, leather (in a good way). Wonderfully thick and complicated on the tongue, with vanilla, oak, and powerful coffee and chocolate flavors, quite bitter at the end. I can only drink one at a time but thatís enough.

tiggmtl (4545) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 13, 2004
UPDATED: JUN 16, 2004 Huge chocolate, roasty aroma. Clear dark ruby-brown with off-white head that diminishes to cover with some patchy lace. Chocolatey sweet upfront subsumed with roasted malts. Lingering mocha coffee in the finish. Perfect balance between sweet chocolate and roasty bitterness. Body is medium but feels fairly light and refreshing in the mouth perhaps due to low carbonation. Easy to drink. This may be the quitessential Porter. Bottle. Thanks OKBeer.
