Sevenlee (1271) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - APR 19, 2012
Bottle no.342 of 2011 batch. Many thanks to Cuso for the trade. Pours totally black with an almost comically large off-white head. Aroma is roasted malt, chocolate with some caramel notes. Taste is also roasty with some light fruitiness and chocolate leading to a moderate bitter finish. Carbonation way over done. Enjoyable but a little disappointing from a brewery which is usually, from what I understand, top notch.

Borresteijn (4574) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAR 1, 2012
75cl Bottle from De Bierkoning, bought not too long ago, so don’t see why this is retired.. Dark reddish brown to black colour, light beige head. Aroma of brown malts, hard roasted malts, chocolate. Flavour is medium sweet, malty, hard roasted malts, chocolate, pipe tobacco, malty bitter finish. Medium bodied, overcarbonated. Nice flavours though.

’09 bottle. Clear, dark red pour with a fizzy tan head. Aroma is faded, watery malt, caramel, and perhaps some cardboard. Taste is sweet malt with some light bitterness and really bland mishmash of I’m not sure. No roast or meaningful character. Fizzy, slightly biting mouthfeel which does not suit the style. I could have bought a better porter at trader joes for 1/10th of the price.

Marheb (1970) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 1, 2012
Une porter très avec un penchant sauvage presque sur. Pas très attrayante au plan des saveurs, trop mince.

dEnk (3734) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - NOV 30, 2011
Bottle @ home. Aroma is lot’s of roast, some liquorice and a touch of red fruit. Flavour is medium bitterness, big in roast, quite dry. High carbonation. Easy drinking for a full flavoured porter. Nice.

AskForJenny (1020) - Ontario, New York, USA - NOV 28, 2011
0.75 l Bottle 040 of 2008 batch - Roasted notes and cocoa on nose, red color, tan head. Palate was like a fine cup of coffee with the watery finish I associate with the style.

Draught. Congregation Ale House calls this, "Jack the Ripper". I guess this is the one. Light, muddy brown body under persistent, brownish thin head and netting of lacing. There are musty basement aromas and notes of salty, bitter licorice. Taste is sour, sweet, and salty. Palate and mouth is abrased by any lengthy contact with the beer. So lively that it hurts. Maybe that’s why it’s called, "Jack the Ripper" as 1914 is a bit late. Overall, an excellent beer.
