Despite itís high rating, this porter completely surprised me. Dark with a thick, too thick creamy hot chocolate head that soon settles--the first whiff reveals that this is a robust porter--one with a sharp coffee and chocolate aroma that is perfect--absolute heaven--and concealing in a tantalizing manner the initmation of alcohol. The smoky, roasted flavor is amorphous and sharp (black patent malt proliferation??) The sharp flavor will take some getting used to, but this beer projects as a winner on camping/fishing expeditions. A pleasant surprise and a beer I will no doubt rate again in the not so distant future.

This classic porter is a stand-by when I want a good dark porter with a lot of body

Smells of chocolate, coffee and tobacco! Dark chocolate colour, a touch of garnet around the egde, almost no head. Chocolate, coffee and roasted malt flavour. Dry, rich and roasty(Yum!) So glad to finally try this Porter on tap at Smokeless Joeís.

Dark brown, coffee and chocolate flavours, nice long malty bitter finish. Outstanding.

Lighter, yet just as refreshing, as the smell of the first drippings of coffee on a sleepy morning. The deep copper browness blurs around the edges, laced with a light thin head. The taste is very mellow and deep, mellow and deep. The hint of milk chocolate, dark milk chocolate that fades to bitter sweet in the end, tells the tale of a splendid porter.

One fine brew. Pours out to a dark as night color in the glass with a minimal head. Smell is that of roasted fruit and malt. Taste is that of roasted malt, hops and as someone else said, licorice. I detected a plum-like taste as well. The finish is smooth and begs for another sip. One word: Delicious.

GermanBrews76 (679) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - NOV 5, 2002
DEEEP dark rich color coupled with a nice head on top. Complexity is right on, kind of sharp at first, sweet and maltylater on. Well roasted flavor with notes of chocolate and coffee. Lingering bittersweet finish. A VERY good porter

Now thatís good stuff. Great roasted malt and chocolate aroma. This is the most complex porter Iíve had ítil now. Chocolate, coffe and roasted malts notes that seem to go on forever.

This beer rocks. Aroma of cocoa and coffee, caramel and brown sugar. Beautiful, very dark, sparkling ruby hue. Medium sized, creamy, tan head. Mostly lasting with excellent lacing. Flavors of roasted nuts smothered in dark chocolate, toffee, buttery caramel. Perfectly balanced. Not sweet. Slighty salty, rich with hints of espresso on the backside. Lively carbonation. Full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel. Long, slightly bitter and salty, dry finish. Excellent Porter. Another triumph from Fullers.
