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.

DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 18, 2006
Aroma is chocolate and roasted malts. Taste is similar with some grassyness coming through, finding it a bit thin and unintresting really, maybe grainy also.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 9, 2002
UPDATED: NOV 20, 2004 Cask@ The Prince of Wales, Richmond London. Really great on cask, less sweet than the bottle version, with a rich bitter dark chocolate flavour, smooth and then bitter mouthfeel, yummy. --------&# Excellent porter, but its quite thick at times, so one bottle is enough for me. Big rich chocolate sweetness, with hints of coffee and quite bitter on the finish, slightly spicy aswell, which adds something else to it.

SaintMatty (5380) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JAN 12, 2009
Cask (Guide Dog, Southampton) - Black in colour. The aroma features chocolate, coffee and some liquorice hints. The taste is unbelievably smooth and moreish with coffee and chocolate featuring prominently. Itís delicious and whilst the bottled version is good, this is so much better. Superb.

SilkTork (5229) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 16, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 7, 2010 Feb, 2007 William IV, Leyton. Soapy roasty dark beer. Quite dry and bitter, like a Guinness, but with some balancing red berry fruits and a hint of lactic sourness. Coffee emerges very late in the finish. The overall wild feel is very attractive, but the dry bitterness from what is clearly dry hopping is not to my taste. I much prefer Shepís Porter. Still, a decent enough drop.[3.4]
Nov, 2009 New Wheatsheaf, Southwark. Kookís crawl. Smooth. Hit of chocolate followed by wine and bitterness. Lovely drop. [3.4]

ThomasE (5176) - 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.
