Maris (1393) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - MAY 2, 2012
From a 330ml bottle on 2/5/2012 (batch no.176, bottled 5/12/2011). Pours a very dark amber with very little head. Has a biggish aroma of rum, brown sugar and caramel. In the mouth, it’s incredibly sweet, with more brown sugar, caramel, toffee and a hint of dark fruit. There’s curious little in the way of balancing bitterness though, just a dollop of rummy alcohol. The texture is quite thick and sticky, and the carbonation is on the high side. It actually reminds me more a Belgian Abbey ale than a big porter. I’m normally a sucker for big, sweet beers, and this certainly fits the bill, but it’s a bit too one dimensional and lacking in complexity for me to get too excited about it. Good but not great.

teorn88 (6742) - Out of the EU, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 29, 2012
On tap at Brewdog Camden, London. Pours a deep dark brown colour with a small beige head. Foam dissipates fairly quickly. Aroma is on the sweet side and extremely deep and complex. Booze, cooffee, toffee, caramel, wood, porto wine. Taste follows the nose: big cold complex sweet flavors. Vanilla, booze, caramel and coffee. Mouthfeel is medium to full, quite sticky, with soft carbonation. Overall, definitely great brew, even if I’d expect more bitter roasty notes coming out of a porter.

33cl bottle at Amundsen. Batch 176. Bottled on 2011-11-05. Bøack colour with a slight red hue and a small to non-existant head. Aroma is dark fruits, malts, oak and hints of rum. Some alcohol. Flavour is full and complex. Notes of fruits, leather, malts, syrup, molasses as well as some oak and rum. Some citrus. Suprisingly the alcohol is not noticable, even at 11.5% abv. Medium long aftertaste.

50belair (3427) - Florida, USA - APR 19, 2012
Bottle shared at Brasserie 4:20. I was pleasantly surprised by this beer after looking at the ratings. Clear amber pour with a fleeting white head. Big rum nose. A little thin in the body with decent carbonation. Lots of caramel, spiced rum, some vanilla, malts, and just a hint of Dr. Pepper. Really this porter is very good...

Mortlach (1966) - Rome, ITALY - APR 18, 2012
17/04/2012 330ml bottle, shared by Federico & Edo (Faber) @ Brasserie 4:20. Thank you! Nera, impenetrabile, riflessi color caffé, schiuma beige-cappuccino, non molto abbondante. Al naso intense note di malti tostati, frutta secca, vaniglia, rum, alcol bene in evidenza. In bocca è un po’ troppo sbilanciata sul dolce ma mostra un sorprendente equilibrio. A tratti ricorda un vino fortificato, a tratti un liquore dolce. Nonostante il corpo importante si lascia bere bene. Gran bella birra!

olsvammel (6293) - Örebro, SWEDEN - APR 15, 2012
Bottle from systembolaget. Chocolate, oak and sweet taste with a boozey rum finnish. A bit to thin and boozey for my taste but still nice to sip at.

Hermod (6493) - Vantaa, FINLAND - APR 14, 2012
Bottle @Viisi Penniä, Helsinki. Poured dark brown with a thin white head. Aroma has rum, portwine notes, raisin and wood. Flavor is similar, dark fruity, raisin, sweet dessert wine, St.John Commandaria coming to mind. Long sweet dark fruity finish. Alcohol well hidden. Smooth moutfheel, full bodied. The rum is more evident in the aroma.
