COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A.Le Coq Porter is a strong dark beer that can rightfully be considered to be the successor of the world-famous "Imperial Extra Double Stout." Its mature character and perfect taste are derived from sparkling spring water and extra dark caramel-malt.

0,5 l bottle, bought at Grüne Woche 2015, Berlin. Pours out in a dark red brown with a big head. Low sweet malt on the nose. Taste is malty, light toasted, mid sweetness, little bit alcoholic. Low carbonated. Not very complex, more a thin one.

jpkeskinen (302) - FINLAND - JAN 16, 2015
Drank from a bottle. Quite ok but there is not that much taste when you think it’s a porter. Slightly sweet and watery.

Fredxyz (22) - BRAZIL - DEC 11, 2014
Cerveja escura espuma creme mas pouco persistente. Super bem balanceada nos aromas e sabores, tostado leve, malte muitíssimo saboroso e lúpulo na medida. Cremosa, saborosa e refrescante. Uma delícia quero mais!!!

Kauge (445) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 22, 2014
Bottle from a local shop (plus € 1). Never had this before. Pours light brown with decent light beige head. Aroma is light caramel and boring malty wateriness, faint roasty notes. The foam extracts notes of alcohol. Taste is uninspiring watery caramel and grainy malts. Would like to say bittersweet but the sweet overpowers the very little bitterness. A hint of chocolate, but that’s really like bits of chocolate diluted in water. Body quite light, palate creamy smooth but also watery, finish very dry, grainy, dusty, minimal bitterness. Some metallic notes later on. Carbonation not present, perhaps only a tiny tingle when swallowing. Covers my teeth with a Cola-like coating, makes me wanna go brush my teeth. Overall a very watery and candy-like caramelly (makeshift of a proper) Baltic Porter. Not good. But not terrible enough to not finish the bottle.

Farven er dejlig sort men med lidt brunlig farve. Skummet er hurtigt væk igen og ikke så tæt som jeg kunne ønske det, så her mister den et par point ved mig. duft og smag er karamel, og det så rigeligt. God porter.
