KajII (800) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - AUG 17, 2009
UPDATED: FEB 21, 2012 Bottle. The pour was a very dark murky brown, almost black with an average sized (1-2 finger) medium brown frothy head that diminished slowly and had some really nice lacing. The aroma was of a cookie malt and a sweet leathery yeast with notes of chocolate, brown sugar, molasses and roasted coffee. The taste was good and roasty and extremely malty with hints of chocolate and brown sugar from the start, and then had a slight bitterness to it and a nice dose of coffee towards the end. The aftertaste was smooth and roasty with a nice creamy choco-coffee flavor and lasted quite a while, which I did not mind at all. Mouthfeel was extremely creamy in texture and full in body with a nice soft carbonation. Overall this was an EXCELLENT Porter with the flavors blended together so well that it created a very creamy and roasty brew that was a pleasure to drink...

Sarlacc83 (1610) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 13, 2016
Draft at the Oregon Highland Stillhouse. A: Pitch black with a thin off-white head. N: Intense milk chocolate with a good amount of coffee, toast, vanilla, toffee, and lactose underneath. T: Goodly sweet, lightly bitter. M: Medium body, crisp carbonation, no alcohol. O: This is really, almost surprisingly, delicious. There’s immense flavor here for such a light ABV.

DraftDodger (731) - 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 (211) - 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.
