Very good classic English Porter. Full, consistent flavor all the way through (the 6-pack). A bit expensive but worth the small investment.

Excellent. Dark roast coffee/ dark chocholate flavor. Soft and smooth just a slight hint of bitterness.

Walked into the kitchen, didnít turn on the light, I thought I grabbed a London Pride from the fridge - opened the bottle and was hit w. a burst of chocolate aroma. Jeez, this is a chocolate malt for adults. Great look, flavor, mouthfeel. Fans of bitterness will regret the lack of a bitter finish, but appropriately, the finish is sweet, tangy and clean. A fine after dinner beer, a whole pint is a bit more sweetness than I usually care to drink, but great nonetheless.

UPDATED: JUN 14, 2004 Wonderful elements. The head was enchanting, like a thick ice cream float, and the feel in the mouth an excellent combination of richness and subtle carbonation. Long finish. The taste is the usual suspects: coffee, chocolate, roasted nuts. The aroma is a bit understated. In the end, I think I prefer Fullers 1845. //Re-rate, June 2004. My wife bought a bottle to use in making an onion gravy, since she recalled that the recipe called for some kind of alcohol (it actually called for a sweet wine!). But the gravy turned out great (with sausage and over wide noodles), and there was over half a bottle left for me to enjoy, and it was much more than I had originally remembered.

Great porter. Wonderfully malty without being too filling. Tastes of dried fruits and burnt chocolate. Absolutely beautiful.

I loved the roasted malt flavor had a slight chocolare and roasted malt taste

VA Homebrewer (525) - Portsmouth, Virginia, USA - MAY 21, 2002
COmplex little porter here with an aroma of dark fruits, roasted malt, and cough medicine. Full bodied with dark fruits, bitter chocolate, roasted malt and alcohol all making an appearance. A little perplexing, as I thought it had alot in common with an imperial stout with regard to flavors and aroma. Clear cola color with a medium head that didnít last.

Bottle. A very smooth porter that does not overwhelm. Nice chocolate/coffee flavor in a robust wrapping.

Great porter, and the chocolate/coffee notes are not to strong as in many American porters. This is the model, along with Taddy Porter. Itís also a tremendous bargain, all Fullerís products are, you can get an Imperial pint (18.6 oz) bottle for around $2.50 or so...
