Definitively my favorite porter. Chocolate, coffee, rich, creamy and delicious. On a cool fall evening, this beer is always at the top of my list.

fhoublon (66) - Lachine, Quebec, CANADA - APR 18, 2014
Canette de 500 ml achetée à la LCBO Rideau à Ottawa. Dégustée le 18 avril 2009 (pint). Bière noire opaque. Col épais biege crème assez durable. Assez effervescente, bulles moyennes. Légère odeur de café crème, de noix de Grenoble. Très douce, très sucrée, assez amère en finale. Goût de café prononcé, de sucre. Peut-être un peu trop douce, pas très complexe. Pas trop lourde, se boit bien.

R2k2 (306) - NETHERLANDS - APR 17, 2014
A nice, black beer with a firm stout-like layer of foam. Nice aroma of the roasted malt. Nice bitter taste where the malt is very present. It moves on into a bitter aftertaste. Een mooi, zwart bier met een stevige stout-achtige schuimkraag. Lekker stevige aroma van gebrande mout. Goede bittere smaak waar ook de gebrande mout weer naar boven komt, en dit gaat over in de nasmaak.

Brewhemia (12) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 17, 2014
I was surprised to see that this beer scores a 100. I tasted it in a blindtaste and really didn’t like it. Dark red color and watery palate. Aroma of mocca and caramel was ok. The taste is really dull though. Tasted to me like red wine with cola. That’s not what I’m looking for in a porter.

Shain (11) - ISRAEL - APR 13, 2014
Red wine aroma, malt aroma. Black body, light brown short head. Taste is complex, somewhat confusing. Citrus notes, roasted, wine, dark chocolate. Slight sour tang, bitterness. Some sweet fruit-malt notes, balancing the bitterness. Mouth fill is watery but full, carbonation is quite strong. After taste is slightly sweet with hints of malt and coffee.

Purchased at Binnys in Chicago, IL; enjoyed on a Saturday afternoon while listening to records and watching baseball. Appearance is a moderate pitch black with a thin tan head, looks nice. Aroma of nice chocolate and cocoa, light caramel. Taste goes down lightly bitter with great chocolate notes, light nut. Pretty good porter, happy to have had one of the most famous porters around!

beer-yum (357) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - APR 12, 2014
Another excellent beer by Fuller’s that is a benchmark of its breed. Has everything one would be looking for in a Porter - without any of the faults/tradeoffs found in many other brews.

Darn_it (15) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 11, 2014
God forbid you ever come across this beautiful bottle as it adds way too much to the price. Classy though. A wonderful mouth feel and a classic. Very simple but hits the nail in the head. The chocolate notes beat out other brews that have added chocolate. All the flavors you want in your porter and zero flaws. Find it in a can and it’s a steal. I really value complexity in a beer which this definitely does not have. I feel I may have over rated this but I am going to stick by it.

Niller (435) - Hammel, DENMARK - APR 8, 2014
Bottle from Bilka. Dark brown color with a tan head. Malty aroma with coffee notes. Flavor is malt, dark chocolate, coffee, hint of caramel. Good creamy texture. Nice smooth palate. Light bitter finish.

Dark brown body with a tan head. Malty aroma, some chocolate, some caramel. Sweet taste, notes of chocolate, coffee, some smokiness. Thick texture. Very soft carbonation. Really nice.
