Wow! My first ever porter and its just great. Highly hopped nose. Rich dark creamy head and a gorgous dark, almost black hue, a great looker! Has an earthy, roasted taste of coffee and chocolate and is dry, full-bodied and wonderfully complex. Good balance, great ale.

Deep mohagany brown with a tan head that has a fluffy top. Dark roasted malt goodness in the nose. Dry grain flavors. A chocolate bittersweet finish round this one out.

BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 3, 2003
Nice frothy head. Smells of coffee with a smokey roast hint and subtle chocolate aroma to finish. Taste was too strong for my liking and the finish was bitter. I like Fuller's Porter much better.

Voivod (304) - Como, ITALY - FEB 2, 2003
Nice appereance with a deep brown colour and a brown, persistent foam. Coffee aroma and a roasty taste with light traces of chocolate. The aftertaste is bitter and reminded me coffee. Very good!
