Borresteijn (4686) - Amsterdam, - JAN 29, 2013
33cl Bottle from De Bierkoning. Almost black colour, creamy light-beige head. Aroma of loads of sweet milk chocolate, hint of coffee, as it warms some vanilla, light fruity, alcohol. Flavour is medium sweet, brown malts, roasted malts, full creamy chocolate, light vanilla, fruity and light bitter roast in the finish. Light to medium-bodied, smooth. Straightforward but very well executed porter.

aroma di vaniglia e liquirizia,caffč poco presente..scura/marrone con schiuma a grana media di color nocciola/panna,poco persistente..gusto dominato da liquirizia,troppo pronunciata..amaro nel finale ma ben bilanciato dal dolce del malto..porter strana,ma devo dire che č anche la prima volta che scelgo una porter vera e propria,quindi devo dedurre che mi sento piů da stout/imperial stout che da porter. nel complesso perň č una buona birra

BeerSkull (1307) - SWEDEN - AUG 24, 2014
(Bottle). Aroma of roasted malt with a slightly sour tone. Tastes roasted malt and some caramel. The finish is a little burnt and dry. Drinkable Porter but it does not impress, rather, a little dull.

Bottle. This is a nice beer, but you’re better off going for one of their stouts if you’re forced to choose.

adster (348) - HUNGARY - JUL 20, 2014
Elsőre kissé visszafogott illattal lep meg minket, melyhez talán hozzájárul az a vastag és krémes habpaplan, mely hosszasan időzik a főzet tetején, mintegy gátját szabva a molekulák áramlásának. Kis időt követően azonban egy rendkívül elegáns, pörkölt, kávés aroma tárul elénk, mely a folytatásban sem tűnik el nyomtalanul. Kellemesen telt, krémes állagú, szinte harapható. Jegeskávészerű zamata, a lágyan pörkölt maláta, az erősen karamellizált cukrok kerekded hatása egy, a címkén olvasható leíráson már előirányzott régmúltat idéző, klasszikus és igazán nemes ízélményt produkálnak. Hajlamosak vagyunk azt feltételezni, hogy az efféle alkotások a stílus alfái és omegái, a főbb jellemvonások ugyanis, melyeket egy ilyesfajta italtól várhat az ember igen remekül vannak illusztrálva e főzet személyében.

Alengrin (1746) - BELGIUM - JUL 18, 2014
Originally an occasional (’Vanilla Porter’) brewed for the North Bar in Leeds, but Brewdog apparently adopted this as a year-round brew in the meantime. Advertised as a Baltic porter, but clearly top-fermented and in that respect more of a ’typical’ porter (if such a thing exists altogether). Yellowish beige, creamy, near rocky head, colour a very opaque ruby brown, bordering on black. Complexely perfumed aroma of candi syrup, molasses, port wine, soy sauce, pear, dates, liquorice and tobacco, taste kicks off slightly acidic (with even a hint of citric acid), quickly overpowered by a well-rounded, ’dark’ fruitiness, bit syrupy and powdery mouthfeel, deeply malty foundation, in the finish lightly toasted bitter (some coffee), the drying acidity from the onset again appearing. Not the best beer I’ve had from this progressive micro, but an interesting porter nonetheless.

Lubiere (9999) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 25, 2014
A dark brown porter with a thin brown head. In aroma, sweet fruity chocolate malt with caramel, dark fruits, smooth resinous coffee, very nice. In mouth, a nice peated chocolate malt with light smokiness, dark fruits, light coffee, very nice. BB Dec 2012.
