2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
330ml bottle pours a deep amber color with a small white head that leaves no lacing on the glass. Aroma is cherries and not much else. Taste is malty sweetness with cherries. No porter qualities at all in this brew, not at all what I was expecting.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle bought in a bordershop close to Heiligenhafen. Not sure how to rate this, it tasted like sparkled lemonade. As such it was quite tasty, but it didn’t resemble a beer at all.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle shared with McTapps. A strange feeling when you know that this one is just dark beer mixed with cherry sirup. It tastes like it sounds. A bit sweety with some cherry and beer aroma. That´s it.

Bottle shared with MichaelBruch. Dark brown-black in colour, low head. Taste of artificial cherry flavour like the one you may find in chewing gum. Very sweet.

(Bottle). Very distinct aroma and flavor of cherries. In the taste there is some flavor of malt but almost everything is about cherries and cherries again. Taste is not really bad but I would not call this a beer, it’s more like cherry juice. And for that matter, to call the beer "Porter", that’s an insult.

Halve liter fles in Berlijn. Donkerbruin, kraag is vrij snel weg. Ruikt wat muf en naar kersen. Smaakt zoetig, een beetje mout en kersen. Smaakt meer naar limonade dan naar bier maar best lekker.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
50cl Bottle at Klub Malých Pivovarů, Plzen. Due to the lack of dark beers I chose this, ignorantly thinking that Kirsch was the brand name. Hazy brown colour, soapy white head. Aroma of stale cherries, dusty malts, brown sugar. Flavour is very sweet, brown sugar, caramel, cherries, cherry cola, light malty. Porter..pff.. Anyhow, not undrinkable, just very sweet.

2.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Brown bodied, grey head. Cherry candy, white sugar. Full on sweetness, cherry and strawberry, balanced by only some carbonation. Strangely it’s not so bad. Aftertaste okay. Some malts.. Just really sweet but I can’t rate this very low.
