DraftDodger (726) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 10, 2016
Copenhagen 10/2 2016. 50 cl bottle from Meny. A little golden man carrying a stick/pole on the label. A porter I presume. Pours clear reddish dark brown with small off-white head. Disappears quickly leaving only patches of foam. Aroma is dark roasted malts and chocolate. Fairly sweet but not overwhelmingly so. Soft carbonation and slightly thick palate. Taste is pretty rich. A bit on the sweet side without being too much. Caramel, chocolate, a touch of licorice. Pretty mild compared to many porters usually heavy with alcohol. Light bitterness in aftertaste. A very fine shot at the porter style from Fuller.

Beachmaster (293) - Oklahoma, USA - FEB 8, 2016
Bottle into a pint glass. Pours black, with a moderate tan head that fades quickly. Nose is dark roast malt, and the taste follows, with hints of cocoa and coffee. Very well balanced and extremely drinkable. One of the world’s best porters.

migwell (209) - Northampton, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 1, 2016
Poured into an English pub glass at cellar temperature. Smells roasty and chocolatey, has a solid brown porter look to it. Sure enough you get a bit of coffee and chocolate in this rather thin but smooth porter. If I had to pick a brew that defined this style, Fuller’s would do nicely. Easy drinking and pleasing, quite well balanced, this one’s a keeper.

ferryman72 (52) - NORWAY - JAN 25, 2016
Pours beautiful dark brown, black in the glass, with a nice airy head that disappears very quickly. Roasty aroma of coffee and chocolate, as advertised. Light bodied on the tongue. Not much happening but leave it resting in the mouth a couple of seconds and it gives a good, medium sweetness, with some hints of dark chocolate. Thin feel, average carbonation, abrupt finish. No aftertaste. Hyped up as "one of the best" but I beg to differ. Good value.

leghorn99 (193) - Livorno, ITALY - JAN 24, 2016
Marrone scurissimo, ai margini del nero, e schiuma beige chiaro a trama fine, cremosa e dalla buona persistenza. Al naso c’è l’essenziale, quanto basta, ovvero pulizia ed eleganza: caffè, cioccolato al latte e amaro, orzo tostato, cenere; a temperature ambiente emergono anche leggere suggestioni di caramello, vaniglia, cuoio. Ottimo l’arrivo al palato: poche bollicine, corpo tra il medio ed il leggero, perfettamente in equilibrio tra la volontà di essere scorrevole e quella di non risultare troppo acquosa, lasciando una sensazione morbida che avvolge il palato. C’è grande intensità, nonostante la modesta gradazione alcolica (5.4%), fatta di caffè, tostature eleganti, cioccolato amaro: l’acidità del caffè è la sfumatura conclusiva che dà un po’ di riposo al palato, permettendogli poi di assaporare il retrogusto, ugualmente intenso, fatto di raffinate tostature, cenere e caffè.

ryanhunter_4 (180) - La Crete, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 23, 2016
500 ml bottle poured at home. Pours a dark brown with a beige head that dies out quickly. Smells like chocolate and malts (I think...stuffy nose). Taste is smooth with notes of dark fruit, chocolate and malt. Good beer.
