BeaverBrown (245) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 28, 2003
Dark brown with a small tan head. Smells like coffee and chocolate. Smell as if you were walking into a coffee store. Medium body. Taste sweet and coffee more like a stout.

One said "Smells like opening a bottle of chocolademilk". Pours with a fine lacing head. Flavor has first chokolade and later a little laqurice. Great bitterness.

Wow, this beer alone has made Porter high on my list. It had a great aroma of caramel, toasty, burnt sugar and coffee. In the flavor it had much of the same plus some nice fruitiness and a compexity that is hard to describe. I think burnt marshmallow was in there. It had enough roasted grain and hops to keep the sweeter tendencies under control. It was smooth and full of body and had a nice mouthfeel. It was a perfect balance of many flavors. This is one to try.

CapFlu (4916) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 6, 2003
(Bottle) Thin, beige head and deep red/balckis body. Slight aroma of sweet malt. Flavours of charcoal malt with botter smoked finish. Good.

xmandax (130) - Astoria, New York, USA - MAR 29, 2003
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 (5685) - 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 (3700) - 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.
