Bue en bouteille de 75cl chez De Dolle à Esen, cadeau de Kris. Bouteille avec aucune mention de "Porter" Couleur ambrée opaque, pas de mousse et pointe d’effervescence. Nez pruneau, prune acidité et bois. Enorme attaque sur l’acidité avec une grosse pointe de bois, piquante elle est très portée sur le pruneau elle se marrie à merveille avec un vieux Comté.

Bottle @ De Dolle Brewery, Esen - BE. Color: clear dark brown beer with no carbonation and no foam. Smell: sour attack, sweet notes. Caramel and candied fruits. Barrel aged and wine barrel notes. Taste: medium body with caramel malt balanced with sourness. Fruity sourness, candied fruits. Red fruits as strawberry and raspberry. Good attenuation. High astringence with no alcohol finish. Quiet interesting but not common for De Dolle... Aftertaste: candied fruits, alcohol notes.

75cl bottle @ De Dolle. Shared with the UnPer100 crew, thank you Kris for sharing it. Autant ne pas aller par 4 chemins, cette bière reste plus sur un style oud bruin que porter. Le nez montre son age avec un côté renforcé niveau madérisé et un petit rappel de vieille colle à papier mais aussi un peu de vernis à ongle. Palais reste centré sur une levure sauvage, note aigrelette très prononcée qui verse vers son homologue plus contemporain de BFM. Rappel de fruit noire; prune, figue et date. Petite touche acétique qui accompagne cette sensation aigre. Comme dit plus haut, on est plu sur un style flamant de vieille brune que un porter. Ok, semble être partout sans vraiment arriver à être une chose précise en bouche - certainement pas un porter.

Alengrin (4529) - BELGIUM - AUG 10, 2014
One-off porter-like experiment for ZBF 2009. Light yellow beige head, very dark red brown colour, near to black. Complex fruity aroma, vinous with strong presence of lactic acid, sour cream, brambleberries, medium dry sherry, cassis, passion fruit, wine vinegar, coffee, white grapes. Smooth fruity taste, quite strong carbonation, sharp citrussy tartness almost like unsweetened orange juice, caramelly maltiness, dark ’forest fruits’, woody accent, ending in a lactically sourish dryness. Certainly something for those who appreciate Belgian-style sour beers but more of a very dark oud bruin than a porter to me.

Mortlach (1922) - Rome, ITALY - MAR 17, 2012
16/03/2012 Brasserie 4:20 (tap). Bruna con riflessi mogano/rubino, abbastanza limpida, schiuma quasi assente. Al naso bretta, note di ciliegie, caramello, acetone. In bocca è acetica da morire, con lievissimi sentori superstiti di ciliegie, frutta rossa, note dolciastre, maltate, finale aspro, molto astringente. Corpo medio, carbonazione corretta. Si salva al naso, ma in bocca è ai limiti dell’imbevibile.

RBESG 2010, draught at Brasserie 4:20
Dark brown color. Strange aroma, sweet, dusty caramel, good body strength; sweetish caramel flavor, with light fruitness and decent sourness. It lacks some freshness in character to be really appreciated.

Koelschtrinker (17299) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 30, 2011
Unangenehm saurer Geruch nach saurer Gurke, krass störend. Saurer Antrunk, der im ersten Moment fast so schlimm wieder Geruch ist. Im Mittelteil gibt es kaum eine Änderung, erst im Abgang wird die saure Note erträglich und fast angenehm. Wenig bis kaum malzig, die Säuerlichkeit wird holzig. Ein extrem eigenes Bier, dem ich nicht übermäßig viel abgewinnen kann. 12/9/6/7//8

Clear mahogany with a medium beige head. Sour aroma with sour berries, lacto, roasted malt and balsamico. Sour flavour with balsamico, lacto, sour berries and roasted malt. Finished sour.

At De Dolle, a treat sorted out by Chris I think it is? Whatever, a treat. Ta for the holiday Mes, Sim, Harrisoni. Dark brown with a small tan head. Great smell, fruity and sour and soy sauce. Unique, very unusual. To me anyway. Very tart and sour, fruit, almost a wine like quality. Thanks for the treat everyone. A special beer.

Deep ruby brown with a small tan head. Aroma of coffee, berries and funk. Dry and tart chocolate and roasted malt flavour, with a lasting aftertaste of coffee
