solidfunk (5924) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - APR 30, 2013
Heavy dose of smoked peat in the flavour here. Almost unbalances the rest of the beer, although it makes for an interesting drink. Pours cloudy brown with sediment. Finishes a little smoky bitter. Lots of malt and a little dark chocolate. Bottle.

KyotoLefty (8121) - Kyoto, JAPAN - APR 25, 2013
Bottle from Yamaichi. Roasty malt nose, coffee, dark chocolate / cocoa, berries, slightly meaty too. Solid nose. Shiny black with a tall, fine, tan head. Fruity, roasty flavor, lots of coffee, dry, burnt, woody finish. Meaty umami in there as well. Tangy, tart aspect to the finish. Rther stange. Dry, decent but far from great.

BVery (8656) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - APR 20, 2013
Bottle from Johns Grocery in Iowa City. Dark pour with an absolute monster of a carbonated head. Slightly a gusher. Ashy and slightly sour on aroma and taste. Medium palate.

NikkTwist (2135) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 17, 2013
Draft at Monks. Cloudy brown red with a foamy off-white head. Smells like a dark red. Taste is unexpected - sour and smoke off in the first sip. A sour ashy mix. Not bad, just not what I was prepared for. The sourness strikes first when cold. The smoke changes a bit to a rauche as it warms. Nothing wrong with any of it, just feels removed from its deScription and most reviews. Sticking with my instincts here.

bartlebier (2815) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - APR 15, 2013
33cl bottle, fresh. - pours a dark brown with great sticky beige head. Big fizz, combined with a rather light palate. Very full of taste for a porter this low on ABV: wood barrel, some chocolate, cold filter coffee acidity which in combination with the high carb and lightish mouthfeel oddly makes for less than easy drinking. Not entirely convincing.

PhillyCraft (4528) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 11, 2013
On tap at monks, pours reddish brown with large, thick, off white head with tiny bubbles. Good lacing. Aromas of roast, coffee grounds, fruity malts, and wood. Flavor is light coffee, roast, dark fruits, bready malt, and barrel. Body was a little thin for a porter. Enjoyable but nothing spectacular as far as De Molen goes.

DuffMan (8316) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 2, 2013
Bottle. Dark brown but still transparent, with amber highlights. Aroma is nicely roasty with some coffee. Straight shooting palate of roast, coffee, and with some nice bready yeast. A tad thin, but homey and pleasant.

The_Bish (1124) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 2, 2013
An average porter, I got a box of beer from my sister today. 18 bottles of chocolate and hops from Beer Merchant. 12 dupes. 12!! Who does she think she is???
