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.

NWAF 25 Jan 13. Ekstremt mÝrkebrun / svart. Lavt film-skum. Innholdsrik aroma. Svisker. MÝrke plommer. Smaken er tunge, mÝrke frukter. Litt sherrypreg. Antydning til rÝyk som et bakteppe. TÝrr avslutning.

Cask at Keanes Head, Nottingham. Fantastic porter. How it should be. Looks great - black with thick tight brown head. Aroma is full rich chocolate. Taste is thick, well balanced between sweet first and bitter aftertaste. Bloody good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
