UPDATED: MAR 19, 2005 Bottle. Coffee aromas with background smokiness. Slight acidity. Instead of the smooth balance of the cask a thin biting finish.

BrianO (138) - Ambler, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 14, 2003
UPDATED: NOV 20, 2003 Dark red in color when held up to light. Little head that fades. Aroma of chocolate. Mouthfeelis perfect - very soft, good carbonation, and expectionally smooth. Flavor is chocolate and caramel. Creamy and rich. Kinda like a snickers w/o the nuts. There is something in this porter that sets it apart from all others. My originial thought is the brown malt or maybe the blend between the grains is in perfect balance. I sure wish Fuller's would would share the recipe. Definately, my favorite porter to date.

LoveCaissa (873) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 12, 2003
A wonderful porter! Deep dark ruby colour. Excellent aroma and flavour with lots of chocolate and roasted malts. Pleasant long dry bitter finish and very smooth. Highly complex and drinkable at the same time; a greatly balanced beer.

Wiseblood (700) - Clarksville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 30, 2003
Very deep brown color with a great aroma of chocolate and a full creamy head. Intense roasted black malt flavors dominate. Underlying sweetness leads up to a smoky, bitter chocolate character with a good hop finish. Outstanding.

JonR888710 (999) - Cochabamba, BOLIVIA - SEP 25, 2003
Pretty thin looking body for a porter, 55% opaque. Head is tall and fluffy. Aroma is heavenly with milk chocolate, malt, and maple syrup. Mouth feel is medium bodied. Taste starts with sweet cream, then grows more complex adding a variety of chocolate flavors (sweet, milk & bittersweet), then roastiness and coffee. Aftertaste is also delectable with more chocolate, coffee, pit fruits, hickory and nutmeg. This is a very complex beer, but never overwhelming. It drinks easily and directly allowing the brain and taste buds to just enjoy the flavor. Purchased in a 500ml bottle at Chevy Chase Wine & Liquors in Washington, DC.

Best porter I have ever had. Full flavor and a very nice mouth feel make it a very satifying brew. It tastes like a regular porter but with all of the best flavors turned up a few notches.
