19Oracolo78 (156) - ITALY - MAR 5, 2017
Birra dal colore marrone scurissimo. Schiuma color caffellatte fine e persistente. Al palato ben strutturata con note di malto torrefatto, cioccolato amaro e caffè. Finale amaro e lievemente secco. Una birra molto particolare e piacevole.

Vulgaris (21) - POLAND - MAR 2, 2017
Nalewa się czarne, z obfitą beżową pianą. W zapachu czuć palone słody i czarną kawę. Zdecydowanie kawowe, z nutami gorzkiej czekolady, lekko dymne, goryczka niewielka, przyjemna. Piwo wodniste, piję się szybko, smak ucieka, jednak pozostawia przyjemny posmak.

Cokemonkey11 (737) - - FEB 16, 2017
Bottle. Pours black with a thin rim. Scent is medium notes of toasted malt and some slightly undesirable notes like rubber. Taste is fairly plain Stout notes with some spices almost reminiscent of Christmas spices. Finish is peppery. Good.

Pallleon (270) - Budapest, HUNGARY - FEB 6, 2017
Étcsokoládés, pörkölt malátás könnyed száraz stout. Nem rossz, de ittam már sokkal jobbat is.

On-tap at Porter&Sons. Nitro. Pours deep brown black with a thick tan head, creamy and stable. Aroma of coffee, roasted grains, ash and dark chocolate. Moderately sweet, roasted, ash, coffee, a bit dry and bitter finish. Medium-full bodied, low carbonation, silky smooth. Great stout.

Draught at Porter& Sons, stable long lasting creamy head, opaque black color with some deep reddish taints, aroma of coffee with toasty and charred notes, flavor of chocolate and coffee with some charred notes, light bitterness, smooth and very nicely balanced. Very good and highly enjoyable.

corkyrory66 (1772) - BELGIUM - JAN 31, 2017
Stout avec 5 malts d’orge différents, dont certains très grillés, et de l’avoine. Niveau abv de 4,5 %, et extraits secs à 11,5 %. Mon exemplaire était à 6 mois après sa date. Couleur noir violacée profonde, à l’opacité quasi totale. Mousse brun moyen, en nappage soyeux de surface. Arômes de café, chocolat, cappuccino, tabac brun, ganache. 1ère bouche souple à la très belle entame malt torréfié, charbon de bois. Arrière-bouche avec chocolat noir, tabac, et une pointe fumée très délicate. 2ème bouche très prégnante avec de superbes nuances, groseilles noires entre autre. Arrière-bouche longue, complexe. La longueur va travailler une intégration quasi parfaite de ces valeurs. Jambes lisses, longues. Levure boisée, belle ligne. Alcool correct, il travaille bien l’ensemble. Finale qui résume le tout. CONCLUSION : pour un stout basique, c’est exceptionnel, parce que tout y est : boisé, fumé, torréfié, tabac, café, chocolat, amertume .. et même le taxi noir de Londres !! Fuller is a winner !!

punkska101 (1919) - Chambly, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 28, 2017
Bottle from Saq A: roasty, some toasted malt, just a touch of caramel, a touch of coffee. App: dark brown close to black sparing beige head t/p: med body with short bitter finish. Soft carbonation. O: Sessionable stout with a nice English feel. It doesn’t push the limit of style but hey, sometimes it’s fine to go back to the base
