Trappist1 (646) - Diest, - APR 4, 2014
750ml bottle. Dark brown color, with a pinkish beige head. Nose: smokey, roasted, cherries, (wild?) yeast ver much present. bit sugarish, hint of sourishness. Taste gives brown chocolate, speculoos, some mocha. Lacks a bit of power though. carbonated and a gentle finish (which I did not expect). To me, it feels that the porter and the ’kriek’ just do not mix up together. Lacks a bit of punch from the ’kriek’ and the smoothness of the porter. Nevertheless a good effort, like this. Nice experiment.

rarbring (1959) - Linköping, SWEDEN - AUG 11, 2015
Aroma: Smelling of bread, cherries, chocolate and vinegar.
Appearance: A foggy brown-red colored beer. A small pink head with some lacing and good curtains.
Taste: Tasting sour red fruits, vinegar and bitter cherry peel.
Palate: Medium high carbonation, a sticky texture. A medium body with a dry finish.
Overall: Much more kriek than porter now, just a faint smell of chocolate.
Note: Bottle 750 ml at home. Reviewed 2015-08-11.

@Camping Ratebeer 2015, label zegt chocolade porter met krieken. schenkt rood met lichte kraag. aroma is zuur, krieken, chocolade. Smaken zijn licht en dun, fruitig van zure kersen, zwak bittertje, siroop, erg lichte chocolade, echter de porter eigenschappen zijn nauwelijks merkbaar.

Borresteijn (5662) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - JUL 27, 2015
At Camping Ratebeers. Reddish brown colour, pink head. Aroma of cherries, some light spices, leather, a bit weird but now I see this is a porter. Flavour is medium sweet, cherries, some marzipan, hint of roasted malts, some chocolate, tart finish. Light to medium bodied.

JorisPPattyn (8799) - Ursel, BELGIUM - JUL 26, 2015
Very good, thick, pinkish cream-coloured head, over very deep brownish ruby beer. Clear sour cherries nose, bit of chocolate, Mon Chéri à souhait. Bitterish, cacao powder, green leaves and cherries, red fruit, of course. Chocolate growing with time. Quite well-bodied, creamy slickness, relieved by the lively carbonation. A good, rare Be collab brew with a classical craft beer result.

PietS (82) - Bergen op Zoom, NETHERLANDS - APR 6, 2015
This beer tastes more like kriek than porter. The cherry flavor is quite good, but it had a strong minthy flavor as well (like the afther eight chocolates); that didn’t match very well in our opinion. I can imagine other people enjoying it though.
