Black gold. I wish I could swim in a pool filled with Fullers Porter. The best porter Iíve ever had.

UPDATED: FEB 11, 2003 Re-rate February '03: There is something missing in this beer that I thought was there last fall. Although coffee and chocolate delightfully infiltrate the flavor, this beer seems less full-bodied to me than I once thought. The finish is more dry/bitter than I remember too. It's a really good beer, but not quite worthy of my original 4.5 rating. September '02: This is quickly becoming one of my favorite dark beers. Very dark color, very rich tastes, especially of black coffee. Not much head retention though.

UPDATED: JAN 30, 2004 Rerate- This beer, the second time around was much better than I had expected. As it warms more flavors of roasted coffee and chocolate come through with just the right amount of bitterness.

Heavy aroma of coffee, but not much of a head. Very smooth with a wonderful dark roasted coffee flavor. Like french roast as a beer.

I had my hopes up high for this beer but was disappointed;too much astringency from the roasted malts. Their ESB is stellar and should get this rating

Thick rich flavour, Roasty coffee flavors, apparent without being overbearing. A smooth perfectly balanced porter.

Uglyradio (791) - Greenville, South Carolina, USA - SEP 15, 2002
The best of its style that I have had. Thick and very rich, with coffeeish flavors. Probably the most flavorful porter around.

morty99 (371) - Maryland, USA - SEP 15, 2002
One of the best porters Iíve had. Thick, chewy, great mouthfeel. Coffee and chocoalate flavors melded perfectly. Porter Heaven!

A nice brown apperance, with little head. The aroma is like many other chocolatey beers. I did not taste this at optimal time -- eating Chineese food and Iím sick -- and though I can hardly taste anything esle, I can certainly taste this! This is the type of beer that will put hair on a manís chest. Very strong taste, still fairly smooth, and a little bitter finish. Youíll only drink one, :O).

Caramel dark chocolate, taosted grain nose. Deep mahogony hue. Yellowish tan head with slight lacing. Sweetness first, medium full bodied. Velvety smooth, chocolate, caramel, grains, and a nice hopped bitter finish. One hell of a beautiful example of a porter. Brilliantly balanced!Perhaps best of style!
