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 : 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.

Ungstrup (29223) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 27, 2005
[Cask at Charlieís Bar, Copenhagen] An opaque red-brown beer with a small brown head. The aroma is sweet roasted with notes of caramel and hints of coffee - the flavor is like the aroma, but combined with notes of berries. The mouthfeel is smooth.
