Keg at The Brewdog Bar, Birmingham. Dark brown, red with off white head. Very cold and heavily carbonated, tasting through burps. Quite fruity in nature with a glucose type sweetness, thinner on the palate than the colour suggests. Slightly strange.

This just goes to show how hard it really is to brew a decent porter. BrewDog makes many a world class beer, but the libertine Porter was is definitely not one of them. Itís almost like itís an unfinished brew, and thereís definitely something missing here. Itís rather thin at the pour, the color is not that inviting either and reminds me more of a cola softdrink than anything. There are some hints of caramel and rye in the aroma which arenít a scam, because thatís the main thing I taste too. Everything vanishes before you can really get a load of it though, from head to taste.. Thereís a reason why brewers more and more pull out porter of their production, as it is simply a timeconsuming science to make the perfect brew. The Libertine Porter is nowhere near being an interesting one..

TET (1602) - FINLAND - DEC 14, 2012
A colabrown beer with a medium but a weakening and brown head. Aroma is greatly balanced and pleasant, nice roastiness, chocolate and sweetness, liquirice. Taste of strong roastiness, coffee, some liquirice, herbal bitterness in the middle of taste, aftertaste is roasted and even slightly burned. Medium bodied, low carbonation, pleasant and quite smooth to drink. Powerfull, strongly roasted and clearly hopped beer, the personal Porter.

Tide (1756) - Espoo, FINLAND - DEC 6, 2012
Bottle from a friend. Black color, brown head. Strong, roasty taste with smoke, coffee and liquorice. Burnt taste dominates too much. Burnt finish with coffee. Mixed feelings about this one, but ok for an experiment.

CraftBeerNick (859) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2012
Keg at the PSBH 1st May 2012. Not bad standard bubblegum brewdog sweetness - they need to innovate ASAP starting to get samey and commercial -inevitable?
