jamaty (1246) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 7, 2015
Negra opaca, con 3-4 dedos de espuma ocre. Aroma marcado a chocolate. Cuerpo ligero-medio y baja de carbonatación, lo que la hace muy bebible. Ricas maltas le otorgan un sabor potente y rico. Dulce y cremosa en el primer contacto, para evolucionar a un amargor seco y largo de cacao y algo de café. Buen postgusto. Muy rica como norma de la casa. Otra buena Fuller. De las mejores porter.

Pours dark, very dark, with a white thin head. Aroma of caramel and chocolate, sweet ale, smooth with a medium bitter finish. Excellent.

promontor (87) - HUNGARY - JUN 10, 2015
0.5l bottle from britishstore. Huge beige head, aroma is mild, chocolate, maybe a bit roasted. Foam is bittersweet, well, bitter. The beer is fluid chocolate. Mild carbonation, silky mouthfeel, maybe a bit watery. Bittersweet aftertaste, probably the best part of this beer. Altogether well balanced, moderate, harmonic, but I could not find the complexity for a higher score. Maybe it was too old (I opened the bottle two weeks after rhe Best Before date...).

500ml bottle shared with lots of people at Savori. Aroma: soya, chocolate, coffee, roasted malt. App: clear dark brown, minimal beige head,little lacing. Taste and palate: some cacao and dark chocolate in mouth, medium creamy body, slightly sweet, light bitter and smokey finish. Overall: good but prefer my porter more smokey.

From bottle. Doesn’t fail expectations. As advertised, silky creamy. Great body. Possibly the best porter around.

Bawelt (74) - Lyon, FRANCE - MAY 27, 2015
À mon avis surestimée. Une bonne porter, goût très chocolaté, peu amer. Un arrière bouche fumé. Et pas grand chose de plus. Plutôt agréable à boire, pas trop amère.

graziano85 (363) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 20, 2015
UPDATED: MAY 24, 2015 Dark brown color, with a small beige head. Smell is roasted malts, some coffee, earthy. Taste is first roasted malts, good ones, not at all too roasted but nicely balanced, coffee, some chocolate, even licorice and in the end it comes a nice bitterness from the hops. Good body, nice balance, very good dark ale.
