COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask: Seasonal - Winter and Spring.
Smooth and satisfying, this example of an historic style of beer derives its rich, chocolatey character from a blend of Brown and Chocolate malts in the brew. Its notable coffee notes and creamy finish make it a wonderful accompaniment to many sweet foods Ė especially chocolate pudding. 5.4% ABV.

NOTE: Most Fullerís beer in the US is served by handpump kegs and not a cask. Ask your server.

Cask at Charlies. Black coloured with a beige head. Roasted aroma with notes of coffee and liquorice. Roasted flavour of coffee, liquorice and chocolate. Long dry finish of liquorice. The cask version is much better than the bottled version.

TheGrandMaster (2334) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 15, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 22, 2006 Poured at The White Horse in Parsons Green (London), a dark black with a brownish head. Coffee is strong in the aroma, with coffee and caramal in the flavour. As always, oh so smooth. Re-rated from the cask at Whistle & Flute in Putney, London (rather than keg above), still a great beer. From the cask more resembles the bottle - a good thing.

Tobias10 (99) - London, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 14, 2005
Cask : The Duke of Hamilton, Hampstead. A really black beer with a white foaming head just after its poured. Lots of dry hops in the mouth, rich coffee/chocolate hints. For its strength and style, its very easy to put a few away!

Sobchak (131) - Skagen, DENMARK - OCT 5, 2005
(Cask, The Wharf, Aalborg) - A very pleasent porter, and reasonably easy drinkable.- Potent coffee, liquorice and roasty, with a slightly hoppy dry aftertaste that hangs around your tastebuds for ages.

Hbie (133) - Essex, ENGLAND - JUL 19, 2005
Cask at Counting House, London. At last I have managed to try this beer. Almost black with cream head. Lots of flavour coffee, chocolate, roast malt, leather, sweet and dry with some hops. I tried this several times at this pub and each time the beer was different, when fresh farily sweet, when older alcohol is more noticable, but very enjoyable always. Yes a really good winter beer.

DeepBlack (386) - Derby, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - JUN 11, 2005
On handpump from The Alex in Derby on 22nd March 2005. Black in colour. Seems like a good porter sadly caught right at the end of the barrel

Cask. Sweet with a lot of liquorice flavour. The taste just seems to go on. Quite smooth and very drinkable in the good way. Very nice.

Softer and less heavy than the bottle version. Smooth finish. Excellent complexity. Some fruits in the aroma.
