Roast Roast and more Roast. Outstanding. Pours black wth a thin head. Rich and creamy with a smoked aroma and flavor that invades your senses. Plenty of coffee mixed in as well. I understand why everyone is so full of praise for this porter. IndianaRed (4545) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 20, 2004
Dark, reddish brown. Little head that dissipates rather quickly. Very little lacing. Very nice sweet smell of plums, molassas. Stong smokey flavor, charcoal, dark roasted coffee comes through also.
Very smooth feel, carbonation feels very fine. Slightly bitter but appropriate trailer. A justly highly rated Porter.
Would be a regular in my fridge but for the $3.20 price. Sancho (245) - Da Bronx, New York, USA - JUN 20, 2004
Bottle, Brewtopia í04, Very dark black, Coffee and chocolate aroma and after taste. Good Rich beer HopsOrDie (687) - New Lenox, Illinois, USA - JUN 18, 2004
This beer didnít live up to the high rating it has been given. The flavors were very mellowed without any character standing out from the rest. Some roasted/burnt malty flavor with the balance of hops, some chocolate too. Faint leather smell in the nose. I would prefer Anchor or SN porters over this one. crzybob77 (530) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUN 16, 2004
Dark blackish brown color. Rich roasted coffee aroma. Full, rich taste with some good hop flavor and roasted coffee and chocolate. This a great well balanced brew! Fullers makes one hell of a beer.

Very Dark Coloring. Strong Beer. Heavy tastes of Chocolate and Coffee. Definitly worth trying this one. jgentgesdo (694) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - JUN 13, 2004
Thick, tan head. Smells of coffee, chocolate, leather (in a good way). Wonderfully thick and complicated on the tongue, with vanilla, oak, and powerful coffee and chocolate flavors, quite bitter at the end. I can only drink one at a time but thatís enough. tiggmtl (4545) - East York, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 13, 2004
UPDATED: JUN 16, 2004 Huge chocolate, roasty aroma. Clear dark ruby-brown with off-white head that diminishes to cover with some patchy lace. Chocolatey sweet upfront subsumed with roasted malts. Lingering mocha coffee in the finish. Perfect balance between sweet chocolate and roasty bitterness. Body is medium but feels fairly light and refreshing in the mouth perhaps due to low carbonation. Easy to drink. This may be the quitessential Porter. Bottle. Thanks OKBeer. beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - JUN 10, 2004
Pours a nice black color with a light tan head that leaves moderate lacing. Amazing aroma of chocolate and coffee. This brew has a great sweet start with chocolate tones and ends rather bitter. oli (108) - DENMARK - JUN 6, 2004
