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.

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.

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!

UPDATED: SEP 19, 2012 This was quite good, though I prefer their stouts. Aroma of roasted coffee, and a smooth taste of light spices and rich coffee. Better than middle-of-the-road but not exceptional.

An excellent porter. The smell reminds me of coffee, and the taste that follows reinforces that notion. The taste is full but dry, and seems to be missing something to me.

Color dark ruby red, stable brown yet a little bit foamy head. Sweet coffee aroma. Starts with spicy malt continues roasty with notes of bitter chocolate and licorice. Finishes drier with a hint of smoke. Impression sweet and good body.

I don’t know what it is I don’t really like about this beer but I don’t. It has a good roast malt flavor that I love, sweetness in just the right amount body is perfect but there is just something there. Go ahead and try it though most others don’t have my reaction
