2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
(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.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
--My sample was expired by a month and a few days, so it may not be a just rating.--
Aroma: Sweet cherries and cola.
Mouthfeel: Very light and sticky. A few bubbles.
Taste: Very sweet and cherryish, but totaly uncomplicated. There’s really nothing else to it.
Finish: Sweet with some tartness.
Overall: Drinkable but unremarkable. If it were less sweet...

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Rating #699, bought in Berlin in some supermarket. It apperantly has an alias as Lausitzer Kirsch Porter, as well.
Okay, if this has anything to do with a porter, it a hell of light one. It is brown like a thin brown ale or something, and there is no stable head at all. Aroma is somewhat acceptable - a bunch of quite artificial cherries, but some malts as well. Flavor is sugary candy cherries, chocolate and a bit of roasted malts - the last part the only thing making this one just a bit porter-like. The finish is more acrid than bitter. This has nothing to do with craft brew, and maybe not even beer, but nontheless I am a sucker for artificial cherries and yes I like Coca Cola Cherry as well - which has excactly the same kind of cherry taste. A soft but bit thin palate. Somewhat tasteful beer in a weird candy like way.
