4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
At a tasting in YK23 house in Haifa during brewing Brown Porter, 330ml bottle, pours black color with short ecru head, like espresso, coffee, toasted malt and bittersweet chocolate aroma, bittersweet chocolate and coffee taste, medium-light body, flows, feeling slightly bitter and lively carbonation palate, maybe a little too much lively, sweet and bitter aftertaste, overall a superb beer, although the taste is slightly disappointing relative to the aroma.

330 ml. bottle split with Beerlover_Ben. Obtained in the big Israeli trade. Blackish, little but solid mocha head. Nose is glue, earthly liquorish, light sweet coca-cola, lightly metallic. Taste is glue, sweetish plastic, liquorish, herbal, thin, plastic, berries, light bitterness,… Rather thin. Not very impressive but drinkable for sure.

AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 330ml. Pours black with a medium tall, short lasting foamy dark brownish head. Aroma is unique and pleasant: Strong dark malt, slight coffee, corn, roasted notes and somewhat fruity, slightly yeasty. Body is quite light and slightly watery, carbonation is quite soft. Tastes is mostly sweet with very little roasted grain bitterness. Taste of dark roasted malt, very obvious, yet subtle smokey notes - whiskey like. Some coffee, slight chocolate, some light fruity hop flavors. Flavors of corn, vanilla, bread, yeast, somewhat like a wheat beer.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
330ml bottle poured into a pint glass.
Hazy dark brown with a small dark tanned head.
Nose is full with dark chocolate and coffee, with pleasant roast and some milky notes.
Roasted malts flavors, with chocolate, cream and low bitterness.
Not very dry, lacks some hoppiness, round and too malty. OK.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bottle in Jerusalem. Exp date: 3/2014. Pours jet black with two-finger creamy head that sticks around a minute or two before dissipating. Yeast sediment at base of bottle, carbonation visible only when tilting the glass. Aroma dominated by Tuborg-like unpleasantness, with faint undercurrents of roasted malt, coffee and dark chocolate. Like all Dancing Camel beers, I find something about the taste disagreeable -- borderline skunky. The first half of the swig is rather nondescript, transitioning into bitter flavors of roasted malt, coffee, and dark chocolate. The skunkiness creeps in with the rest in the second half. No alcohol presence. Even as the beer warms, there’s little change. Mouthfeel is upper range of medium. For a stout, this fails to deliver and tastes like a cheap gimmick.

UPDATED: OCT 28, 2013 On-tap at the brewery. Pours deep brown almost black with a medium beige head, good lacing. Aroma of roasted malts, cocoa and coffee beans. Sweetish with roasted malts, caramel and dark chocolate notes. A bit too thin texture, but smooth and tasty. Nice stout.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, thnx to Tomer, cheers man!! Pours a very dark brown, almost headless beer with very little carbonation going on. Aroma of chocolate, molasses, some artificial sugars and lactose. Flavor is mildly sweet, a bit milky smooth and has a very flat, watery moutfheel. Would consider this as a sweet stout or a milk stout, or the flavor is just off. Not really impressed by this one.
