madscotsman (147) - Fairview Heights, Illinois, USA - MAY 20, 2008
tap, poured a dark brown color, with a creamy khaki head. The aroma was awesome with some roasted malts, coffee and chocolate. Had a great creamy balance on the palate and a perfect finish. This is a great porter.

akoeninger (642) - Wisconsin, USA - JUN 24, 2016
Pours dark brown, tan head. This is one of the best porters I’ve ever had. Great roasty chocolate aroma, sweet malty taste and chocolate finish. Well balanced and medium bodied. Just so good

Skarecrow (45) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 19, 2016
500ml can BB 31/8/2016 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.

BenL8 (38) - SWITZERLAND - JUN 17, 2016
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.

Stew41 (1904) - Phuket, THAILAND - JUN 17, 2016
I’ll 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)

peponi (1326) - Mainz, GERMANY - JUN 16, 2016
Aroma: roasted dark malts (even smoky), burnt malt, caramel, sweet. Appearance: deep amber color and beige head. Taste: low bitterness, burnt malt, roasted caramel, semi-sweet Palate: medium body and medium carbonation, roasted finish. Overall: That’s ok, not outstanding beer.

Kebabman (7) - Devon, ENGLAND - JUN 13, 2016 does not count
My favourite Fuller’s beer but it’s a shame that it isn’t 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.

batupata (23) - FINLAND - JUN 10, 2016
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 doesn’t really have a remarkable mouthfeel in it. Overall a nice strong flavoured porter, probably one of my favourites. The price (4€ / 500ml bottle) is bit steep though.

ryecatcher (1291) - Bridgeport, Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 9, 2016
Bottle. Dark chestnut brown pour, essentially opaque with a medium beige head, decent retention. Nose is coffee, caramel, chocolatey, somewhat diacetyl butterscotch, but in an acceptable English way. Mouth is medium bodied, mild creaminess, light sweetness, coffee, candy, subtle bitterness. Very nice.

Fules (495) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - JUN 6, 2016
Finom gyümölcsös illat, pörkölt jegyekkel. Erős, pörkölt kávés íz, a háttérben egy kis gyümölcsösséggel, és némi komlós mellékízzel. Utóízében a kávés jegyek dominálnak. Közepesen testes.

pgliszczu (4) - - JUN 5, 2016 does not count
Bottle 500ml. Aroma: Roasty and a little bit of soy sauce and chocolate. Brown almost Black with a midium, tan head. Taste’s slightly bitter and sour with a light body and fizzy carbonation. Finish is long, mostly coffee like. Overall: Light beer, with strong influence of dark malts. Nice break between IPAs on hot days.
