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.

MrTipple (4321) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 22, 2017
Intense dark chocolate, cacao, filter coffee, dark, toasted malts, slightly burnt. Black, small, frothy, beige head. Medium sweet. More dark chocolate, toasted malts, coffee, light bitterness coming up, more roast, liquorice, flat carbonation, medium bodied, dark malts on the finish. Very nice Porter, intense but well-balanced. Quite a hunt to chase down this beast. Cask at The Harp, Charing Cross.

BeardedAvenger (597) - Addlestone, Surrey, ENGLAND - JAN 9, 2017
Cask at Prince of Wales, Farnborough. Malty choc aroma, with sour overtones. Dark, but let down by the thin beige head. Sweet with a medium bitterness. Some sourness in the finish. Fruit & nut dark chocolate. The fruits eventually come to the fore. Light. Smooth, although also found it somewhat chalky in to the long finish. Enjoyable taste, just not 100% on the palate.

caribou43 (902) - Lausanne, SWITZERLAND - JUL 10, 2016
I drank this beer yesterday at Lausanne, during a barbecue with friends. It is a safe value, roasted malt, chocolate, hop, bitterness and dry finish, overall well balanced and nice black body with brown and white foam. I love this porter and the price is correct regarding the qualitym

Beerxellos (113) - POLAND - JUN 19, 2016
Very deep dark color with nice head. Coffee and dark chocolate dominates both in taste and aroma, but much more noticeable in taste. Pleasant toast and bitter in the finish. Medium carbonation, nice body, very drinkable beer.

Marduk (7173) - Reval, ESTONIA - JAN 19, 2016
Cask @Black Door, Helsinki. Deep brown-ruby red color. Medium size, firm dusty tan head, stays forever (I mean literally when I take last sip the head is still there!). Chocolate, roast, sweetish, tiny bit of grain in aroma. Dark chocolate, deep roast, coffee, very mild hops and grain in taste. Long lasting roasted chocolate malts in aftertaste. So smooth and tender on tongue. Absolutely mind blowing quality! Orgasmatron!
