MichaelAwesome (4082) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JAN 29, 2014
A thick and sweetish one with caramel, chocolate, some sugar. Full bodied with a bit of malt and nuts in the back. Perfect one for a cold day in January.

McTapps (4083) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JAN 28, 2014
Bottle from Douberd - many thanks! The beer pours out in a deep dark brown colour with steady low head and medium to smooth body. Aroma of malt and wine. Taste of intense malt, port wine, dark grapes, yeast, nuts and torf. Very sweet finish of brown sugar and caramel. Had this beer to a dessert of dark chocolate cake and it accompanied it perfectly. Nice beer!

Bottle 330ml @ Geokkjer
Pours clear brown with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, chocolate, licorice and alcohol. Taste is medium sweet and light bitter with a long warm, caramel finish. Body is medium, texture is thin to oily, carbonation is soft.

yngwie (13567) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 11, 2014
Bottle. As Double Port. It pours a clear, dark reddish brown body under a dense, finger-thick dark beige head. The aroma is roasted and cellarish, with prunes and dried figs, some alcohol too. Almost vinous. The flavor isn’t equally interesting and complex, but still quite nice. Prunes and dried figs and some alcohol warmth. Full body and a pleasant carbonation, with a little warming touch. Some dms in the finish, where it’s mostly dried fruits showing up. A bit short finish. Pity the flavor isn’t in the same league as the aroma, but it’s a nice one anyway. 140111

alethol (102) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 27, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 28, 2013 Pours very dark brown, alomst black. Aromas of molasses, raisins, bread, porto, alcohol. Taste is disappointing.Full, but unbalanced. Heavy, lacks refinement. Rather unpleasant after a while.

Trappist1 (495) - Diest, BELGIUM - DEC 27, 2013
Brown with a copper glance, brown head gone in 60 seconds. Sugar, candi sugar, distinct alcoholic, liqueur, dark fruits. Taste: caramelized malts, very sweet finish, alcoholic. well (over)carbonated. Body is less what you would expect/need from this brew. Overall: all seems good but mainly sweet & alcohol, can’t convince me. this beer is missing something.

Shaney (2428) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - DEC 18, 2013
Das "Dubbel Port" ist dunkelbraun, beinahe schwarz, leicht trüb mit schnell verflüchtigten Schaum - sieht dann unappetitlich abgestanden aus. Ein weiniges Aroma mit säuerlichem Einschlag ist vernehmbar. Ziemlich würziger Antrunk, gefolgt von leichter Säuerlichkeit mit brotig, bitter-süßen Abgang. Spritig, unsüffig, kantig, scharf und unkultiviert. Belgisches Geschmacks-Waterloo!

Bosbouw (1252) - Gemonde, NETHERLANDS - DEC 17, 2013
Bruine donkere kleur met een volle crème kraag. Ruikt, chocolade, kers, fruitig en zoetig. Smaakt zoetig en caramel en chocolade. Iets alcohol nasmaak.
