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.

Stine (1744) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 26, 2006
Cask at the Euston Flyer, Clerkenwell, London. I was quite happy to finally find this on cask even in the summer....aroma packs in molasses, brown sugar, licorice, rye, and chocolate. Still, the roasted malt and chocolate malt balance the flavor beautifully, so there is only a hint of sweetness (a taste similar to port). Such a rich and full-bodied brew this is, but still so drinkable, even while I sweated in that hot pub.

ThomasE (5174) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 2, 2006
Cask at Charlies, Copenhagen. Deep brown beer with a small thin light brown head. Roasted malty aroma with a nice coffee bitterness. Roasted malty flavor with a light coffee note and a faint sweetness. Quite thin and watery finish.

skenward (4) - ENGLAND - APR 20, 2006 does not count
A good Porter, traditional in aroma and flavour. Good for those cold winter nights when you need to feel you have something of substance. Great as an ingredient in Beef & Oyster pie!

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 16, 2006
(On tap) Black and almost opaque with a vague reddish hue. Creamy, beige head leaving some laces. Lightly burned, malty nose. Rather full body, lightly burned malty flavours with some incredibly delicious almost vinous accents - port - and some accents of dried fruit. Discreet hoppy finish. 160406

harrisoni (16701) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 24, 2006
Cask handpull at Head of Steam, Euston. For some reason I have found this unbelievably difficult to find on draught this winter. Black beer with beige head. Lots of burnt malts. What is impressive is the mouth feel and the fruit. Velvety/grainy, full, intense flavours. Damsons, plums, prunes. Then a harsh, burnt finish, tempered by choc and more dark fruits. Stunning beer

Cask Stillage at the New Century Hall, Manchester 21/01/2006 Dark and strong in alcohol with fruit aroma and flavour. Smooth on the palate. Subtle slightly dry roast finish.
