Bottled @ RBESG 2013 Grand Tasting. Dark color. Lovely aroma of coffee, licorice, hint of tobacco. Bit dry in taste, some ashes. Lots of flavor in a low alcohol beer. Great job.

Bosbouw (1249) - 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.

Abijen (1477) - ’s-Hertogenbosch, NETHERLANDS - JUN 29, 2013
Pours a dark brown beer with a good white head. Smells lovely. Burn roasted and coffee. Tastes like coffee and dark chocolate. Palate is weak. Watery and very low on carbo.

ASColli (1) - - JUN 16, 2013 does not count
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.

Bottled 750ml. -Courtesy of heavy, shared with him and Marko. Black coloured, medium to big sized pale brown head, mild roasty nose with whiff of tobacco. Roasted malt, dark chocolate and slight acidic with light notes of tobacco. Rather bitter finish.

Marko (3933) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - MAY 27, 2013
Thanks heavy! He found it in Vrutak and shared with me and ogivlado. Actually had it before Drei Von Dänen... Anyway... Blackish body with a huge dark tan/grey/brown ead. Fresh herbal malty nose, light fruity notes, of apple, slightly sourish, slightly roasty. Light dry roasty taste, some chocolate, light bitterness too, herbal I guess. Balanced malty porter, though there was something about it I didn’t like.
