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.

neongolden (415) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 8, 2012
(cask at Brydenís, Toronto Nov 29, 2012) Pours dark brown, head off-white with big bubbles and lots of lace left behind. Aroma of milk chocolate, roast malts, nuts, a bit of fruit sweetness. Flavours of roasted, bready malt, light coffee, chocolate, just a little nutty. Finishes mostly dry with a bit of fruit and light hop and roast bitterness. The mouthfeel from the cask is excellent: smooth, rich and creamy, full with light but active carb. This is a good beer in a can and the cask is even better. Worth noting that it wasnít quite as good two days later, glad I hit its sweet spot.

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

albertane (377) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUL 15, 2008
Cask at the Derby Beer Festival. I’d been eagerly looking forward to trying this dark brown beer with its appealing bubbly head. It was smooth on the palate with a rich, warming flavour of chocolate and toasty malts. More sweet than bitter, it had a slight smokiness.

Jonb5 (365) - Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 18, 2010
Half pint on tap at the Barrowboy and Banket, great dark mahogany colour. Could smell roasted coffee. The initial taste of toffee and coffee gave way to raisins. Smooth mouthfull, when in London try this beer

Pours dark ruby colour with a medium-sized head. Taste is roasty, malty, with some coffeeish notes mixed with dark chocolate. Notes of spices and dark fruits. A bit smoky and bitterish aftertaste. Alcohol is well hidden. Smooth and full bodied.
