Frothmeister (627) - Ontario, - APR 6, 2010
500ml can. Pours a dark, dark brown with a beige head. Faint aromas of molasses, coffee, and smoke. Flavour is big on molasses / black licorice, with some coffee, and a little caramel. Lots of coffee in the bitter finish. Solid.

promontor (85) - HUNGARY - JUN 10, 2015
0.5l bottle from britishstore. Huge beige head, aroma is mild, chocolate, maybe a bit roasted. Foam is bittersweet, well, bitter. The beer is fluid chocolate. Mild carbonation, silky mouthfeel, maybe a bit watery. Bittersweet aftertaste, probably the best part of this beer. Altogether well balanced, moderate, harmonic, but I could not find the complexity for a higher score. Maybe it was too old (I opened the bottle two weeks after rhe Best Before date...).

Pours dark, very dark, with a white thin head. Aroma of caramel and chocolate, sweet ale, smooth with a medium bitter finish. Excellent.

jamaty (1148) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 7, 2015
Negra opaca, con 3-4 dedos de espuma ocre. Aroma marcado a chocolate. Cuerpo ligero-medio y baja de carbonatación, lo que la hace muy bebible. Ricas maltas le otorgan un sabor potente y rico. Dulce y cremosa en el primer contacto, para evolucionar a un amargor seco y largo de cacao y algo de café. Buen postgusto. Muy rica como norma de la casa. Otra buena Fuller. De las mejores porter.

Stoned99 (474) - Quebec, CANADA - JUN 4, 2015
500ml bottle shared with lots of people at Savori. Aroma: soya, chocolate, coffee, roasted malt. App: clear dark brown, minimal beige head,little lacing. Taste and palate: some cacao and dark chocolate in mouth, medium creamy body, slightly sweet, light bitter and smokey finish. Overall: good but prefer my porter more smokey.
