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 Ė especially chocolate pudding. 5.4% ABV.

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

JaBier (7146) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - JAN 10, 2010
On cask at Elephant & Castle. Darkest brown pour with a big tan head. Roasty chocolate malt aroma with hints of coffee. Roasty flavor up front with some nice chocolate sweetness before a dry coffee finish. Great beer, but I think I may like the bottle better.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 29, 2007
A Mes rate: Gravicask at St. Albans beer festival. Considering where I live I find it ridiculous that it has taken me so long to get hold of what is EASILY Fullers best beer. Sadly quality is pushed aside in the name of market control. Black / brown colour with a very slight head. Coffee, malt and dark chocolate with a lovely coffee finish that goes the full circle back to chocolate again. Strange watery yet creamy palate. Jolly good. Sort it out Fullers.

jackl (7093) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 23, 2012
Cask @ The Star Tavern. Another Fullers beer you donít often find on cask! The pourís deep brown with a medium tan head. Attractive. The nose is rich milk chocolate, roasted nuts. Rich, sweet malt flavors. The taste is more rich chocolate malts, caramel-coated nuts and toasted cereal. Hints of coffee. Light, dry finish. Medium body, lively and silky palate. Quite rich for the ABV. Overall, pretty excellent. Superior to the kegged version.

SaintMatty (6964) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JAN 12, 2009
Cask (Guide Dog, Southampton) - Black in colour. The aroma features chocolate, coffee and some liquorice hints. The taste is unbelievably smooth and moreish with coffee and chocolate featuring prominently. Itís delicious and whilst the bottled version is good, this is so much better. Superb.

Mar 2012 - Draught at the Ship Richmond - decent and drinkable porter.

Dec 2012 - draught on Fleet St. Tastes like sweet filter coffee or a floater coffee. Quite nice.

Cask at the Mad Bishop and Bear, Paddinton. Coffee, roasted malt, nuts, oat flakes. Velvety, tasty, lovely beer. They should have this on cask regularly.
