Light Chocolate and cocoa aroma. Big chewy flavors. Dry at the end. The standard for the style.

Very tasty, neither the coffee or the chocolate overpowers the other. Wonderful malt/hops balance. Definitely worthy of its rating

UPDATED: JAN 15, 2003 Excellent porter. Creamy, chocolatey, coffeeish=delicious aroma. Good solid malty flavor in addition to the coffee and chocolate flavors. Finishes with a hefty dosing of hops; more than Iíve come to expect from an English beer. A little bit watery in the finish. Impressive stuff this is.

Ingevara (842) - SWEDEN - DEC 20, 2002
UPDATED: SEP 20, 2004 Warm darkness (eyh!?) A flavor of ash resting on a bed of roasty malt and sublime chocolate. Evident, but shy, bitterness, and just enough sugar to slip down easily. Good one.

UPDATED: JUN 23, 2004 Vinous and complex. Dark ruby brown. Don't even think about drinking this below about 55 degrees.

I like porters and this was a good one. A deep dark brown color, with a deep brown/black head, it hads hints of coffee in itís smell. But the taste was great. It was a dark smooth taste hint of coffee and a sort of nut flavor was detected in this great brew by Fuller, Smith & Turner.

This porter has a slighter chocolate taste compared to other Porters and Stouts and a stronger alcohol aftertaste that does not overpower. I had it on tap and it was extremely good.

Iím not a lover of Porters admittedly but even if you normally cannot tolerate Porters yourself, Iíd recommend trying this one. Thereís a nice balance in this I cannot articulate, but I will say that itís not too sweet. This category of beer will always be the preferred of a minority who, for some reason like syrupy, extremely fattening beer. A drink of obese English pigs in dark cellar bars.

Itís big and roasty and rich with an exquisite mouthfeel, but the undertones - charcoal/creosote and brandied raisons, seem at odds with each other and with the brew.

One of the finest porters that you can get. Wonderful chocolate malt taste.
