Bottle @ RBESG’13 Grand Tasting @ De Molen: Served in a Molen taster: Thanks for sharing DutchDrebus: Smaller sized creamy beige foamy head that changes quick into a lacing on top of a deep dark brown colored beer. Aromas of coffee, roast, candle wax, chocolate, raisin, spices and light chalk. Flavours of mocha, cacoa, caramel, marzepin, coffee, spices, bitters, barley roast and chocolate. Aftertaste is a mix of roast, mocha, light coffee and some spices. Low carbo, soft creamy silky mouthfeel, medium to full bodied and a creamy texture. Nice.

Bottle at RBESG ’13 Grand Tasting. Pours pitch black with a medium tanned head and particles floating in it. Aroma is quite roasty, coffee and only a little bot of chocolate. Taste has more chocolate, some roasted malts and coffee, soft to medium bitter finish. Bit too thin body.

Bosbouw (1123) - Gemonde, NETHERLANDS - JUN 29, 2013
Mooi donkerbruin bier. Weinig schuim. Ruikt, koffie, geroosterd. Smaakt wat zoetig, koffie, geroosterd, chocolade. Smaak valt wat tegen. Tikkeltje waterig ten opzichte van de geur.

Bottled 750ml, from Johnny’s off-licence in Rome. Not the strongest aroma, but this is a smooth porter with layers to its flavour. My bottle poured with a fine head, but this beer is only gently effervescent. I’m a big porter fan, so this was right up my street. And I liked that it was reasonably light, as most of the dark beers I enjoy tend to be quite heavy.
