a - poors a dark black, nice head, not a very good retention but leaves a lacing all the way down.

s - the smells aren't coming through i get a bit of coffee and mostly a deep malt.

t - i like this quite a bit, smokey and sweet, hints of coffee and chocolate. a tad of bitter balance at the end and a huge finish that almost doesn't end in between drinks.

m - smooth all the way, solid

d - very good for one or two, but the sweetness of this doesn't make for a session or large serving for most, for a guy like me, i poor it into a two pint mug and get after it...so if you like sweet and rich this is the way to go

notes - easily full circles best beer, i hope they choose this for bottling if their cluster fuggle does well in bottles.

Full Circle is a very small brewery, and is finally starting to pick up a little.
They are starting to bottle their somewhat standard "Cluster Fuggle" [which is interestingly not available on tap?]

This Porter is perhaps even more of their standard.
Nice typical porter, Dark brown color, fair head

Nice malty balanced taste.

Very drinkable, almost good enough for a session ale!
Good Job Full Circle
