Tan, creamy head, mostly diminishing. Fairly dark mahogoney, but so dark as most porters I've had. Wonderful aroma of coffee beans and chocolate. It makes my mouth water. So smooth drinking my jaw dropped after the first sip. Sweetness gives way to light coffee to acidic coffee finish. This stuff is fantastic. Not only that it is a bargain, it was only 2.79 at my local store. It is easy to see why this porter is rated so highly. For once this isn't a case of people being afraid to rate something poorly because everyone else has rated it well. This is a well crafted beer, one I'll drink many times in the future.

I thought this was overall a very good porter. A little flat and dry, with slightly choclately undertones, did not leave a bad aftertaste.

Run of the mill porter, no strong caramel or chocolate tones, but fuller bodied (hence the name!) and mild!

Nice roasted aroma. Roasted and chocolate malts throughout with a slight sweetness. Almost a light stout. One of the most enjoyable porters I have had, and I am not a big fan of the style.

microdyke (360) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 6, 2003
Oaty in aroma with a great deep dark black color with a brown head. Dark roasted malt flavors maybe a bit too dry in the finish for my taste that day.

I’d better have another bottle if I want to say anything that hasn’t been said below.

This lived up to the rating. Loved every drop. Good head. Great taste from the blends of malts. I will be attempting to home brew this soon.

This porter is wonderful. Very drinkable indeed. Nice dark brown with ruby edges. Excellent Roasty nose. Start is very malty/roasty. Good bitterness balance that is perfect. Clean dry finish with a nice roasty aftertaste that does not go away.
