COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask: Seasonal - Winter and Spring.
Smooth and satisfying, this example of an historic style of beer derives its rich, chocolatey character from a blend of Brown and Chocolate malts in the brew. Its notable coffee notes and creamy finish make it a wonderful accompaniment to many sweet foods – especially chocolate pudding. 5.4% ABV.

NOTE: Most Fuller’s beer in the US is served by handpump kegs and not a cask. Ask your server.

MiP (15972) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUN 10, 2005
Cask. Sweet with a lot of liquorice flavour. The taste just seems to go on. Quite smooth and very drinkable in the good way. Very nice.

Scopey (15663) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 13, 2013
Cask at The Antelope, Sloane Sq. It pours very dark brown with a small beige head. The nose is coffee, light roast, caramel and cooking chocolate. The taste is roasted malt, coffee, nut, toast, plain chocolate, touch of dark fruit with a dry, roasty finish. Medium body and soft carbonation. A solid porter, but nothing particularly special.

imdownthepub (15325) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 25, 2007
Cask conditioned at The Joint Stock, Birmingham. Dark brown with ruby hints and white head. At last, how many years have I sought this one out in cask, I just new they would have it on in here. Full fruity and sweetish, maybe not true to the original London Porter style where there would have been an acidic sourness, but pretty good all the same. Some coffee husk and background hazelnuts, very good and well worth the search.

DSG (15237) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JAN 19, 2016
Cask at Benny’s Cask Ale Pub in Kfar Saba. Clear reddish brown. Aroma of malt, chocolate, nuts, caramel, toast, buttery hint. Bittersweet flavor, with chocolate, roast, toast, nuts, caramel, bitter finish. Medium-bodied, rounded, flat. Good.

Cask at ØLbaren. Dark dark brown - light brown head. Licorice, english licorice, bread, roasted, light burned notes, berries. A bit watery thin body and finish.

kermis (14553) - The Hague / Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - APR 19, 2012
Cask at the Fullers pub in Birmingham. Dark brown pour with an off white head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate and roasted malts. Coffee, caramel, chocolate and roasted malt in the flavour. So easily drinkable and tasty!

3.7
Christian (13814) - Odense, DENMARK - JAN 17, 2008
UPDATED: OCT 2, 2008 Black with rather short-lived, bubbly light brown head. Rich aroma dominated by caramel, licorice, chocolate and coffee. True porter flavour of chocolate and charcoal. Dry with low carbonation, giving the impression of a thin body

3.9
Rune (13503) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 12, 2009
Half pint, cask well-kept at Doric Arch, Euston, London. Black, ruby tinged body under a thin, beige head. Inviting roasted aroma of sweet malts. Prunes and plums in flavour sustained by roasted malts and balanced by a lingering, smooth bitter end. Full bodied, but still with fine drinkability. A well made, mid-sweet porter (05.05.2009).

mR_fr0g (13475) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 1, 2013
Cask at the moon under water JDW. Dark ruby red brown small beige head. Big choc dry coffee aroma. Soft coronation and full bodied. Flavour is more choc and coffee. Some earthy hop bitterness in the finish. Nice lingering coffee flavour. Very good porter.
