COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Waar rook is, was vuur! Deze Porter krijgt zijn rokerig karakter door het gebruik van gerookte en gebrande mouten. Een donker bier om rustig voor te gaan zitten en lekker van te genieten.

Ok beer, smokyness comes through nicely. Minimal head, foam is sticky though. Taste is sweet with a lingering sweet and bittery finish. Quite a lot of carbonation, too much in my opinion. Also misses complexity.

Borresteijn (4678) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 5, 2014
33cl Bottle at Jopenkerk. So smoked porters are listed as porters, not as smoked anymore? Almost black colour, beige head. Aroma of soft campfire smoke, leather, earth, dark fruits, some roasted malts. Flavour is sweet, quite fruity, dark fruits, some red fruits, soft smoke, hint of leather and chocolate, soft bitter roast finish. Medium-bodied at best. Would have liked some more roast, but this was a tasty treat nonetheless.

A bit of smokiness, though not as much as I’d like. Some decent chocolate, some licorice, and a medium to weak body. Tried at the Burg Bierfeest with Nick in 2014.

Bottle. Deep dark Brown color, milk and smoke (smoked sausage and beechwood) in the aroma. Roasty smoky flavor, fat sausage mainly. Creamy mouthfeel. Well balanced.

caesar (5119) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUL 21, 2014
Bottled from Lekker Bier, BB 03 2015, medium sample, served in a tulip glass. Dark brown color, medium lasting creamy brown head. Aroma of some roasted malts, bit coffee, some smoke going towards peat, slight wood, dark chocolate. Bit sweet in taste, bit bitter. Chocolate and roasted malts are blended together nicely with the smoke, which is not too dominant and which didnt make the beer very dry. Plenty of sweetness left to compete with. Smooth and almost creamy mouthfeel. Soft carbonation, medium bodied. Wonderful beer!

henkjanwiegers (120) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 10, 2014
Pours a cloudy dark brown color with a foamy tan head. Scents of coffee and smoke fill the nose. Cacao and mocca. Tastes of ham and woodsmoke. Taste is a little thin, but after swalloing it gets stronger, filling the mouth with a pleasant porter taste. Not a beer I would finish in a couple of minutes, but it definitely has quality taste.

jmgreenuk (4339) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUL 3, 2014
Bottle from ABC Beers, Den Haag. Poured a clear dark brown with a frothy light tan head. The aroma is peaty malt, light fruit, light smoke. The flavour is medium bitter with a smooth caramel malt hop bitter palate. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Didn’t really get much smoke, but a smooth and very satisfying porter all the same. I would buy this again.
