Another one of my favorites. This porter pours with a dark brown color (nearly black). Full of coffee and chocolate flavors. Wonderful aroma, and incredibly smooth.

Ample off-white head, very dark with some carbonation. Smells of roasted malt, barley. Taste strong of roasted malt and a little bit of chocolate. Not too sweet, creamy smooth, nice.

BeerViking (3607) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 6, 2016
Bottle from the Fullers brewery shop, black with a lacing head and a roasty nose with hints of coffee. Dry-bitter and burnt toasty, yet also creamy textured and faintly sweet, faint notes of liquorice, burnt treacle and red fruit. Delicious.

Eructoblaster (3543) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 6, 2016
Bottle - 355ml. Pours a very dark brown body with a thin off-white foamy head. Good malty/hoppy aroma with nutty and roasty hints. Its well balanced taste carries roasted coffee, earthy, and nutty notes. Ends with a decent roasty finish. Enjoyable.

Beerheart65 (1229) - Pori, FINLAND - FEB 4, 2016
Clear dark brown, huge frothy beige head, sticky lacing patches. Medium strong aroma, dry, lightly roasted malt, bit perfume(?). Light to medium body, thin feel, very light roast, dark caramel and fruit (dried), licorice, raspberry, low carbonation, quite short finish. Disappointed. Had this gone bad? Strange flavors, bit diluted. Have to re-taste some day.

KW92 (870) - ❤ WARSZAWA ❤, POLAND - JAN 30, 2016

WYGLĄD: Barwa czarna z rubinowymi refleksami. Piana drobna, wysoka, trwała, nieśmiało oblepia szkło.
AROMAT: Średnio intensywny. Wyczuwalne nuty kakao, orzechy laskowe, zboża. W tle nuty palone, kawowe.
SMAK: Ciemne słody. Wodniste. Posmak czekoladowo-kawowy. Wysokie nasycenie. Goryczka niska.
OGÓLNIE: Przeciętne. Wiele polskich Porter-ów smakuje dużo, dużo lepiej niż ten. Przynajmniej mam nowy kapsel do mojej kolekcji...

SB Lund flaska. Tuff konkurrens för all porter. Superb måttfull stadig.. Balanserad frisk. Var är ostronen. Fucking selendiarre...

5 oz pour at a tasting. Pours a thin and clear light brown. Looks more like a brown than a porter. Aroma of some caramel, light coffee notes, sweet malts. Flavor follows the nose. Not much going on for me here. Wasn’t a fan. Light and thin body, soft carbonation, and a slight bitter finish with some sweetness mixed in.

Poores black with a medium stable head. Smell and aroma with a malty coffee note with some caramel. Sweet start with some light bitterness in the end. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From Uvinum. In Teku glass. Good. More body than expected, probably because a good use of hops. Not a hoppy interpretation of the style however.
