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.

Vaiz (4052) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - AUG 26, 2011
Bottle. Dark brown pour, thick foamy off-white head that lasts forever. Aroma is roasty, sugary malts, very spicy, licorice and with typical De Molen yeast. Flavor is quite bitter, very spicy and roasted, with very lively carbonation. Slightly peppery and almost like there are some chilies hidden. Slightly off-balance though and a bit rough.

sebletitje (8116) - Enghien, BELGIUM - AUG 15, 2011
Bottle #1049/1182, 75cl corked. Brune claire, mousse est très active même après ouverture. Arôme est au début un peu faiblarde avec pas mal de houblon citronné, au fur et à mesure, un profile malt grillé commence a percé et vraiment donner à cette bière sa dimension de London Porter. En bouche, sec, houblon se fait bien présent avec une légère amertume,e citronnée. Le malt suit et ajoute un beau profile grillé, moka-café le tout restant bien léger en bouche, suffisamment pour ce volume. Malheureusement la levure reste un tantinet active et au final on obtient une bière qui arrive a bien jouer sur l’amertume de ce houblon avec tjrs un fini citronné qui vient se mélanger au malt.

2009 C&C 750 mL bottle from State Line Liquors. Bottle #423. Mild gusher. Pours very dark brown with a large creamy head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate and sour almost lactic notes. The taste is roasted malts, milky notes, tart notes and harsh acetone. Medium bodied. Too bad.

Koelschtrinker (14127) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 19, 2011
Scharf malziger Geruch, etwas schokoladig. Trocken malziger Antrunk mit wenig feststellbarer Hopfennote. Im Mittelteil findet eine aromatische Entbreitung statt, besonders das Malz wirkt voll und lecker. Herb im hinteren Teil und im Abgang, angenehm und knackig, zum Ende hin erst etwas milder, später röstig-süß. Danke an den Doppelbock für das Teilen des Bieres. Test vom 24.9.2008, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 11,11,11,12,13,11 - 11,25

bluebetty (1019) - AUSTRALIA - APR 22, 2011
Bottle. Cork blew out as soon as I released the cage. Pours a very dark brown with a huge beige coloured head. Head dies away very quickly leaving just the faintest of skin. Typical porter aromas. Roasted grain, light smoke, coffee and dark fruits. A little sourness comes through as it warms. Flavours are dominated by bitterness from the roasted grain. Some nutty sweetness. Sour fruity after taste. Medium mouthfeel. Not too bad.

The beer pours light for porter, a darkish brown but shows pretty light and clear held up to the light. There is a lot of carbonation, at least three full fingers of head with good retenino, not great lacing though. The aroma is on the lighter side with german style malts, light smoke, and coffee. The taste is watery coffee not very lasting and the feel is super light, like water again. Not a good beer.
