UPDATED: MAR 6, 2021 Aus der Flasche im 2021-03 getrunken. Diese Porter der Standard Range von Fullers startet überraschend mit bitten Röstaromen. Später kommt etwas Malz und Schokolade durch. Aber auch eine ganz leichte Hopfennote/-bitterkeit ist spürbar. Der Körper gibt nicht viel her und macht das Porter recht leicht trinkbar. Nichts besonderes aber ein ordentlicher Durstlöscher. one51 (1053) - - MAR 2, 2021
UPDATED: MAR 2, 2021 Bottle from an online shop. Dark brown, clear, with a moderate sized lasting head. Not too complex bitter-roasty nose with some cocoa notes. Flavor is smooth and rounded, chocolate malt and dark Cara goodness, really tasty. Not too bitter like some porters and stouts can be. Mid complexity. Extra point for being a classic of the style 😋 mountdad (295) - Mount Maunganui, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 22, 2021
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2021 550ml bottle. Pours a soft black with pale edges & a minimal & fast fading white head. Solid chocolate & coffee on the nose. Light to medium body with a very smooth mouth feel & solid malt base. Very easy to drink. Impressive malty chocolate flavour with enough hops to balance it out & not too sweet. The fuggles do linger & so the after taste is much more bitter than anything in the beer. Miles away from the Asahi Dry so well done. If you are in NZ do try an Emerson or Mcleods Porter to see the local craft competition. Good beer from a multi-national. nicio (9) - - FEB 12, 2021 does not count
UPDATED: FEB 12, 2021 Birra scura. A mio parere ricorda oliva nera. Buona da bere, leggera e beverina nonostante sia una porter. Sn
