This is very good ale. Creamy, smooth, chocolate goodness with hints of coffee. There are hints of hop but the malts are wonderful in this ale.

Very good porter. Black with very little dark tan head. Subtle aromas that included coffee, chocolate, and roasted malt. The aromas carried over nicely to the flavor. Rich coffee and chocolate flavors with a very smooth mouthfeel. It also has a good aftertaste for being a porter. This is a great beer.

Top Pick Porter. Looks, smells and tastes like a chocolate liquor, although a bit bitter, with some coffee. My daughters were almost tempted to try it. A rich taste, aroma and colour - worth every penny. The bottle suggests after a meal, but I was most pleased with it before one.

Excellent porter, one of the best, very little head, slight lacing around the glass, basically black in color, coffee & chocolate in the nose, very drinkable & smooth, medium-full body, flavors of coffee, dark chocolate & nuts, nicely balanced with a bit of a hop character, smooth finish with more coffee & chocolate notes, great porter

Rocky head, moderate lacing. A pleasant aroma of coffee and chocolate. Palate is pleasant with chocolate and nutty flavor, medium to full body. Subtle hop flavor at the end. Very nice beer.

UPDATED: JUL 24, 2004 Embarassed to say that this was my first porter I tried, but Iím glad. Awesome beer. Very strong coffee aroma. Dark appearance with smaller head. The taste of coffe was strong. A sort-of sweet malty flavor. Very good.

This is a fantastic porter. Richly satisfying flavors. roasted coffee, toffee, and molasses. Fuller makes good beer.

It reminds me of a stout with hints of chocolate and coffee. It is a great beer, smooth creamy, from beginning to end.

OK, yeah, it is a well made, tasty porter. I've had it before. I just can't for the life of me understand why it is held in such high regard here. Not that there is anything wrong with this beer, it is in fact quite good. But there are countless other examples of this familiar flavor profile that are nowhere close to sniffing Top 50 status. In any case, deep blackish ruby, nice head that faded almost completely. Nose is roasty, coffee and chocolate notes. Flavor is roasty, chocolate, and coffee, with a hint of fruitiness from the hops. Nice beer, exactly like countless others.

Thanks, Ig, for this one! My favorite porter yet...nicely balanced and more complex than other porters (not just the same old coffe, roasted malts, chocolate). I detected a faint bit of licorice?
