Quevillon (2475) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - APR 11, 2012
Drank on tap (10 oz) at Le Cheval Blanc for the second Big Tuesday of Cheval Blancís 25th anniversary, April 10, 2012. Very dark brown, thin head. Aroma of malted barley slightly smoky, nutty notes. Taste of semi sweet barley and nuts, dry chocolate notes, sweet aftertaste. A good simple porter!

FaithHealer1 (358) - SCOTLAND - APR 7, 2012
Bottle at Danís. Pours a cola black. Aroma is coffee, malty, oaky, a little smokey. Taste is a bit treacley, with coffee grain, peaty maltness and a bit of lavender too. Decent finish, a touch watery mouthfeel but still flavourful. Nice one.

JorgeLee (1179) - Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 5, 2012
Bottle from Kris Wines. Pours very dark with orangey tan hint, and no head. Smell was heavily roasted malt and hint of creaminess. Taste is strong (very powerful for 5.1%), bitter roast and a little sweetish cream. Slightly oily palate. Finish is long and bitter with faint chocolate character. A nice beer, more of a beer at home than a porter for the pub though.

JEK69 (396) - FRANCE - MAR 30, 2012
Pours no foam, no carbonation, strange appearance. Maybe the bottle fermentation did not take place... Color is red. Nose is very neutral. First impression is like a classic porter and finally this is exactly what you should expect from a porter. I already drunk similar ones from draft in south of England, not so carbonated but well balanced. Roasted malt flavour, subtle acidity, nice bitterness, dry finish ... a Porter.

Not my favorite by De Molen, but a typical strong offering. Rich and roasted character. Some chocolate aroma and a sweet taste throughout.

75cl bottle - bottled 20/02/2010 - Pours marron brown with beige head. Nose is spicy (nuttmeg & cinnamon) . Very fresh in the beginning to medium sweet in the finish. Light body with crisp carbonation. Drinks easily for a porter...

sm89walt (1754) - Northern Beaches, Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 15, 2012
330ml bottle from Ales by Mail. Quite lively on the pour giving a large, dense & rocky, lasting orange-hued tan head topping off a near opaque burgundy coloured body. There are plenty of sweet & sour red & dark berry notes to the aroma with background touches of roasted malt, coffee & chocolate. Itís the coffee & roasted malt qualities that take the fore on the palate, however, yet retaining elements of the berry character. Quite a dry & bitter malt base. Finished with a lingering roasty, ashy, coffee bitterness. Medium body, firm, structured & fairly crisp & spritzy in the mouth.

dnstone (2137) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAR 12, 2012
Chocolatey, fruity aroma. Amber-brown with fluffy, sudsy off-white head. Lightly chocolatey taste. An excellent porter.

Black with a tan head. Roast malt, smoke, chocolate and hops on the nose. Nice roasted flavours.
