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 Cockney Pub Ňrhus. Thin head, aroma and taste of bitter flat coffee. Served too warm for my tasting. Im just not into cask and especially not this one.

Black with a nice creamy head. Mild burned malty aroma with strong coffee notes and some liqourice. Flavour is sweet with a bitter finish. Soft mouthfeel. One more please!!!

Dark reddish brown colour with firm light brown head. Smell of roasted coffee and barley malts, with some caramel notes. Taste is similar with low carbonation and medium bitterness, little sweet/hoppy finish, but in comparison with bottle somehow watery. But still great porter.

Egon (478) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - OCT 17, 2007
Cask (obviously). Black with cream, brownish head. Thin bodied for a porter I think. Roasted malt. Some coffee notes? Not bad.

Dark light bodied, roasty malts and hops gives it a nice slightly nice bitter finish.

HarryFlashman (469) - Chatham, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2007
Pretty good this one. I agree that this has got a bitter, almost coffee like taste. It is a good porter, not too sweet, which spoils some of the other ones out there. Overall - good.

Jonb5 (432) - 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

Labove (427) - Rome, ITALY - JUL 12, 2012
Un poí sporca al naso, caffŤ e un aroma sanguigno-metallico poco attraente. Di facile beva ma non acquosa, Ť questo il suo maggior pregio.
