beautiful in the glass, a deep brown almost black colour with a nice bubbly tan head. aroma is mostly smooth caramel malts. chocolate and caramel malts in the flavor with a slight taste of the distinctive fuggles hop flavor. nice full body without being too stickily sweet and syrupy. smoked finish. excellent example of a porter.

UPDATED: OCT 29, 2011 Original Rating, 3/25/2003: Looks wonderful, nice and black with just a little head. Chocolate and coffee aroma. Lemme taste the goods... oh yeah... thatís the stuff. Heavy on the malt, definite chocolate. Wow, this is THE porter. I must find a place that sells large quantities of this. Truly a marvelous beer. 9/5/8/5/18

Re-rating, 10/29/2011: "THE porter... Truly a marvelous beer." Sweet Loki... This is why itís important to go back and revisit those beers from your early experiences. Dark reddish brown color with a medium head. Light coffee and fruity aroma. Bitter chocolate/cocoa flavor. Light roast notes. Slightly chalky. Medium mouthfeel. Nowhere near the Nirvana I initially thought this was, but better than I expected the downfall to be. 6/5/7/3/14

UPDATED: MAR 15, 2004 good porter. it's very rich and complex, and I've managed to drink it at the proper temperature purely by accident. Brown to red brown color, no opacity although very dark, with a nice aroma, perfect body, more than pleasant smoky finish. I need a fine piece of prime rib to go with this beer. Tried it again comparing against Sam Smiths, and Fullers is far better IMO

Suttree (5186) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 18, 2003
Smelled a little alcohol when I first opened it, but mostly got an aroma of rosted nuts. Almost like a chocolate milk flavor, and in texture as well. The alcohol in the nose is not at all present in the taste. Very, very rich.

rauchbier (3616) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - MAR 13, 2003
Bottled. Almost black with red brown highlights. Moderate beige head and good condition. Big booming aromas of licorice and chocolate. Complex and ever evolving in the mouth, starts with licorice and chocolate, moves on to a woody tartness and finally a tinny roast barley note. Leaves the mouth with an oily coat and a chalky throat. Licorice when you burp.

iguanatom (24) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - MAR 12, 2003
Overrated. This average porter is malty and bland. Not that great, but easy to drink. Maybe I had a bad batch or an old bottle, but I doubt it.

mrkimchee (1414) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 11, 2003
deep brownish red. roasty, toffee-ish mocha aroma. lots of roasty flavour with raisins, toffee, bitter chocolate, coffee and a balanced finish between roast and hop. very nice.

Silphium (3173) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAR 10, 2003
A solid dry porter dominated by chocolate and roasted flavors. Very smooth. Allow this one to warm, as the flavors are better pronounced at these temperatures. This is an excellent porter.

Outstanding. Flavor is full and rich, very complex. Chocolate and coffee dominate. Relatively low bitterness.

My favorite porter. Taste of chocolate and coffee all around. Well rounded. Gets better with every sip. Don't serve chilled!
