A flavor of ripe and real cherries, but with no connection to a "porter"

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
(3/2/08) Sample from a bottle (thanks to whoever brought this one) at the RB table at Zythos Bier Festival 2008 in Sint Niklaas. Amber color. A weird aroma with some cherry syrup and some artificial sweetener. Saccharine cherry flavor with hints of malt - really sweet. Light to medium body. Quite awful. Quite terrible and no hint of Porter character to be found.

Bottle shared by ? at ZBF2008 by - thanks!
Dark brown. Strong dry cherry aroma. Enormously sweet cherry taste. Sticky and unsubtle. Unsophisticated. Learner beer at best.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark brown which disguises what you get. Cherry flavour overpowers any other tastes that may be there. Its bit like drinking a cross between Cherry B and Newcastle Brown. Please do not spend too much time thinking about this-life is too short!

1.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle at ZBF 08. Chestnut with beige head. Sweet children’s sweet cherry. Like cough drops. That is pretty awful.

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
ZBF 2008 Brought by someone who’s name I forget: Color of over-brewed tea. Dark drown with a tan head. An odd muddy malt profile. Fruit compote that seems to have been smoked. A bit of fruitcake with its associated spices. Slight dirty cherry. Flavor is of cherry cough drops dissolved into tea with a bunch of sugar. A little caramel, some medicinal herbs and the cherry extract all covered in sugar substitute.. quite hard to swallow.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
bottle from friedrichstrasse railway station. sickly sweet, synthetic concoction that clearly hasn’t been within a mile of a cherry. dark brown, thick, syrupy, like flat cherry cola with added sugar. couldn’t finish the bottle. avoid like the plague

1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
UPDATED: APR 5, 2008 Dark Coca-Cola brown, with no head left. Woodstripper, mossy woodbark, plywood. Like cherry-cola? (as Lola in the song)? THIS is it. Slick, cloying, noxious. UGHH! whomever brought this, faugh!

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2013 Bottle, 4.2%. Metallic sour cherry aroma. Dark brown colour, looks a lot like cola with a small head. The flavour is mostly cherry with some softdrink-like sweetness. Quite low carbonation. Pleasant enough, but not really beery. Late beer bitterness. Tastes like a dark sweetish beer with cherry cola.
