UPDATED: JUL 8, 2016 Can in wine glass. Pours beautifully in a dark brownish red hue with a head that dances slowly as it grows. Aroma is milky chocolate and the taste is very balanced with chocolate and a fine tail of coffee. Blown away by the quality of such a commonly available beer. Excellent.

Pours dark brown, tan head. This is one of the best porters Iíve ever had. Great roasty chocolate aroma, sweet malty taste and chocolate finish. Well balanced and medium bodied. Just so good

Roasted malt aroma upfront.
Poured jet black with creamy head
Good bitterness with lovely roasted finish.
Also a touch of vegemite/marmite with a residual metallic note at the back.
All in all a very nice porter.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JUN 17, 2016 Pours almost completely black with a beautiful layer of thick foam. Looks magnificent. Aroma is rather fine and delicate - very roasty and chocolatey. Maybe some coffee. Medium body. Flavour is archetypical for a porter and delicious. Loads of chocolate and a well rounded roast flavour. Dark malts come out nicely, beer is quite sweet. Very well balanced with a medium long chocolatey and quite bitter finish. Classic and very good.

Iíll agree with the commercial desciptor - this is top shelf porter. Good weight and depth of flavour with plenty of chocolate and cola coming through. A clear pointer to the gains of pushing over 5% for porter. (Tesco 157 baht)

My favourite Fullerís beer but itís a shame that it isnít bottle conditioned. A dark brown, ruby colour with a thin head. Aroma of coffee and chocolate with a rich body. A faint liquorish taste with berry fruityness.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours an almost pitch black beer with some translucency and leaves a smallish cream coloured head that dissipates rather quickly. Aroma is dominated by roasted malts. Coffee, some chocolate, hints of caramel. Tastewise the beer is pretty similar to the aroma. Medium bitterness with strong coffee notes. Leaves a lasting aftertaste of roasted malts. Body is slightly weak compared to the taste, the beer doesnít really have a remarkable mouthfeel in it. Overall a nice strong flavoured porter, probably one of my favourites. The price (4Ä / 500ml bottle) is bit steep though.
