Excellent porter, one of the best, very little head, slight lacing around the glass, basically black in color, coffee & chocolate in the nose, very drinkable & smooth, medium-full body, flavors of coffee, dark chocolate & nuts, nicely balanced with a bit of a hop character, smooth finish with more coffee & chocolate notes, great porter

Rocky head, moderate lacing. A pleasant aroma of coffee and chocolate. Palate is pleasant with chocolate and nutty flavor, medium to full body. Subtle hop flavor at the end. Very nice beer.

UPDATED: JUL 24, 2004 Embarassed to say that this was my first porter I tried, but I’m glad. Awesome beer. Very strong coffee aroma. Dark appearance with smaller head. The taste of coffe was strong. A sort-of sweet malty flavor. Very good.

This is a fantastic porter. Richly satisfying flavors. roasted coffee, toffee, and molasses. Fuller makes good beer.

It reminds me of a stout with hints of chocolate and coffee. It is a great beer, smooth creamy, from beginning to end.

OK, yeah, it is a well made, tasty porter. I've had it before. I just can't for the life of me understand why it is held in such high regard here. Not that there is anything wrong with this beer, it is in fact quite good. But there are countless other examples of this familiar flavor profile that are nowhere close to sniffing Top 50 status. In any case, deep blackish ruby, nice head that faded almost completely. Nose is roasty, coffee and chocolate notes. Flavor is roasty, chocolate, and coffee, with a hint of fruitiness from the hops. Nice beer, exactly like countless others.

Thanks, Ig, for this one! My favorite porter yet...nicely balanced and more complex than other porters (not just the same old coffe, roasted malts, chocolate). I detected a faint bit of licorice?

Pretty good beer. I drank it really fast for some reason; I guess it was too good to wait on. Close to a chocolate stout, but I guess it's a porter. Who knows... Long lasting head. Nice and chocolately with that always present bitterness. Well done, and I believe it would be even better fresh out of the tap.

Very very nice - hard to believe I hadn't tried this one yet. Nice balance of sweetness and chocolately bitterness. Great medium body and deep ruby color. Mmmmm smells like sweet spirit.

I just looked this up under the best category. I've had this in the bottle (not cask) and its a nice chocolate stout, but it aint that great and it aint a porter for gawds sake. Nothing like it - just a soft chocolate stout.
