   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 10/20
tfredvik (1417) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 18, 2013
Hazy dark brown body with a red hue. A huge head forms way too easily (yep, it’s a de Molen beer alright!), it’s light-brown, creamy, very long-lived and it laces the glass well. The aroma is quite strong and quite boring. It’s roasted with coffee, light yeasty notes and dust, and some faint over-ripe fruits far in the back. Very light sweet taste with a moderate to light but sharp herbal bitter finish. A dryness sets in from the very start, and it ends unusually dry. The flavours are not very strong, again roasted notes, coffee and yeast. Light body, too lively carbonated and too dry. A bit too simple and uninspired porter.
[33 cl bottle, enjoyed 10 months after bottling/14 months before BB date, from Vinmonopolet Vika, Oslo]

wlajwl (4625) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JAN 17, 2013
Aroma is yeast, malts and a hint of citrus/lemon zest. The flavor is chocolate, coffee, fruit/berries/citrus and a mix of acidity and tartness in the finish.

larsga (6684) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 4, 2013
Huge brown head, far bigger than the body. Clear deep dark red body with strong carbonation. Earthy caramelly aroma with spicy notes. Dryish roasted sugar and caramel taste with spicy syrup and rye crisp bread notes. Mid-bodied. Mild mouthfeel. Dry spicy cinnamon and rye crisp bread aftertaste with chocolate and syrup notes. Nice, powerful, and interesting, especially for such a weak beer. (0.33l bottle, wine monopoly, Vika, Oslo.)

Finn (4710) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JAN 2, 2013
Flaske 0,33l spandert av Rune og delt under rateseanse i WCveien 4 Okt 12. Dyp mørkerød. Medium høyt, litt farget skum. God plomme-/ sviskearoma. Smaken er “lett”. Tørr sjokolade. Kakao. Ettersmaken det samme.

sonnycheeba (4251) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - DEC 26, 2012
Bottle. Pours deep dark brown with thick, frothy beige head; good retention and lacing. Aroma is roasted malts, smoke, coffee, chocolate, and light dates. Flavor is roast malt, dark fruit esters, milk chocolate, light smoke, and light earthy hops; dry, ashy finish. Medium body and low carbonation.

0,3 liter fles @home. Lekker biertje. Jammer dat er te veel koolzuur in zit.

obguthr (4601) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - DEC 16, 2012
Very weak maple syrup and walnut hints. Hazy brown, thick, tan head. Roasted malt and walnut dominated flavor, lightly sweet maple syrup undertones. Astringent

IlBevitorediLA (452) - ITALY - DEC 4, 2012
Ottima porter. Scura con un abbondante cappello di schiuma persistente. Aroma maltato di caffè ma via via che si riscalda vira verso note cioccolatose. Ingresso dolce. Si ripresentano le note di caffè e di cioccolato (più presente) con una leggera nota acida dovuta all’invecchiamento (che le dona maggior carattere). Si riquilibria alla fine con un bel amaro luppolato non eccessivo, che invita ai sorsi successivi.

WheatKing (1319) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 2, 2012
This is on the dry, chalky side of porters. Grainy thin mouthfeel, roasted hay. Overall, not really what I’m looking for in this style but still quite nice, worth drinking slowly and feeling it warm up, gets better as she grows.

jookos (3495) - FINLAND - DEC 2, 2012
Bottle. Black. Clear. Nose is very roasty. Salty licorice, some espresso, but overall very intensive and roasted. Body is flavourful, but a bit thin. Roasted malts, salty licorice. But a bit hard and thin. Loads of black, saltyness, but a bit of a harsh body.
