Bottle, 51F. Pint. Rich, very rich malty aroma. great dark appearance witht a great tan head, tons of lacing throughout. Really, really good porter, not too sweet, not too creamy. Just a fantastic winter time brew. Cheers. PorterCall (46) - (Formerly UK), DENMARK - DEC 19, 2006
50cl bottle. Beautifully dark. Toasted malt, nutty, chocolate, coffee. Such a bloody smooth full bodied brew. A great example of what a porter should be. Highly recommended. rdelljh (177) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 18, 2006
Tan head, very dark brown color, aroma of roasted chocolate. Taste is slightly bitter enhanced by a slight sweetness. Nice coffee notes in the body, some roast. Smooth, but finishes rather sweet and a bit thin. aarossell (151) - Grandville, Michigan, USA - DEC 18, 2006
bottle:...does NOT pour almost black...I don’t know what Rynoplasty (below) is seeing...
It pours light amberbrown, and settles a dark clear amber. Tastes like chocolate and mostly coffee. Not a lot going on otherwise...creamy, nice palate, sexy bottle, might be good with a steak or burger. Not my favorite porter....too bitter, not enough flavor.

Pours almost black, with a tad bit of red at the bottom you can see, but not much and with a little less than a finger of creamy head. Aroma is of roasted malts, coffee and toffee. Taste is all malty goodness with flavors of the roasted malts, chocolate and coffee flavors coming through. Delicious stuff.

Drunk at home, 10/12/06. Not sure what to make of this. The head was a little thin, and the body was also a little brackish and oatty for my taste. However, the taste lingered in the mouth well. Not my cup of tea, but it is well worth drinking. One for cold nights around the fire. petermadsen (390) - Vesterbronxxx, DENMARK - DEC 11, 2006
After quite a few drinks...
Black w/ a reddish hue. The aroma is burned with chocolate and a faint port-like quality.
The same goes for the taste, but a slight bitterness rounds it off. Overall a nice and very drinkable porter. TheJester (2543) - Cavan Monaghan, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 10, 2006
500 mL bottle. The colour of black cherries. One finger of brown, bubbly head, which dissipates into a film after a few minutes. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, and dust. Taste of roasted malt, chocolate, and something a little more tart. Can’t put my finger on it. Nicely balanced - not too sweet with bitterness in the finish. Very smooth. I often find Porters to be too sweet. This one is great. patrick767 (4474) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - DEC 9, 2006
500ml bottle - Pours very dark brown with a moderate head. It has a very good aroma of roasted malt, coffee, and a hint of chocolate. The flavor profile matches the aroma and throws in a good hops balance. Full bodied and smooth on the palate, this excellent porter finishes with some mild hops and lingering coffee flavor. wineandbrew (40) - Steilacoom, Washington, USA - DEC 8, 2006
Bought @ Steilacoom Wine and Brew. This beer has got to be the English porter that all English porters wish they were! Long been a favorite porter of mine... Fuller’s is an inovative brewery, with the origination of the E.S.B. and their take on the porter. Thanks!
