kerolasa (409) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 13, 2010
Dark chocolate brown color. Great, but quickly disappearing head. Very malty smell. Taste reminds a bit basement. Alcohol aroma is surprisingly strong considering what’s marked up on label. Taste is malty, woody and somewhat smoky. Heavy winter beer, but easy to drink especially if you wait a bit and let the beer get warm. Final note, cocoa taste nice.

Marko (4108) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - SEP 22, 2010
Draught at the new Bishops Arms in Malmö (huge thanks to Maja regarding this one!)
Poured an opaque brown body with a slightly off white head. Alcohol in the aroma (what the?), a little chocolate, sweet. Taste... multivitamin candy, fruity, sweet and again notes of alcohol. Some coffee too. Unbalanced maybe. Far from their best I’m afraid.

PotjeBier (1779) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 12, 2010
On tap @ In De Wildeman. Almost black color, lots of yeast. Off white head with big bubbles. Aroma of roasted/burned malt, fruity. Flavor is very roasted, almost burned, bitter, a bit acidic. Medium bodied. Lots of roast in the finish, bitter. No crowd pleaser, quite harsh.

pivnizub (9162) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - JUL 5, 2010
Bottle: Deep amber coloured, hazy, fluffy - slowly collapsing - tanned head; sweetish-fruity nose with a mineralic-roasty touch; light to moderate sweet-bitter flavour, medium-bodied, soft; drier fruity and toasty finish with a certain bitterness in the aftertaste. Good, but not overwhelming...

yngwie (14630) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 28, 2010
Bottle, 33cl. A dark reddish brown beer topped by a small beige head. Dark chocolate, coffee, pepper and canned peaches on the nose. The flavor has lots of cold coffee, and there’s also a touch of raw potatoes in the back. Medium body, heavy on the carbonation. A nice beer, but nothing more. It starts nice but turns out to be rather ordinary, even though there’s some unusual aromas and flavors in this porter. 100115

MoritzF (8677) - Bochum, GERMANY - JUN 23, 2010
(bottle, 75cl) Hazy, dark brown colour with a big but collapsing brown-coloured frothy head. Sweet and roasty malty aroma with notes of mocha beans, dark chocolate, also hints of liquorice and a distinctive touch of berry-fruits. Moderately sweet flavour with delicately roasty bitterness, medium bodied with a almost lively carbonation. Roasty malty taste with notes of chocolate, a tinge of coffee and an underlying fruitiness; dry-ish, slightly fruity and roasty bitter finish and noble, almost piney hops retronasally (rülps!). Uncommon Belgian-style Porter. 22.VI.10

Bottle. Dark amber colour with a beige head. Aroma is roasted alt, hop, caramel. Flavour is sweet, roasted malt, grain, hop, caramel, coffee. Medium body. OK beer.

thebeertourist (4973) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 23, 2010
Bottle from De Bierkoning. Dark brown with a lively tan head that quickly reduced to a film. Caramel with burnt coffee notes. Burnt flavours, caramel. Rather sweet. Quite fizzy for a porter, light body. Despite hints of originality, the end result is just drinkable.

Bov (9979) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - MAY 15, 2010
courtesy of Allen - dark black colour with a solid dark beige foam; roasted coffeeish aroma with notes of vanilla; effervescent and with a medium malt backbone, some sourness and a dry coffeeish aftertaste with more light sourish notes and undefined spices - a very interesting beer with a bit unusual profile

Countbeer (4910) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - MAY 14, 2010
Bottle: One finger light beige foamy head. Nice soft dark brown to blacker beer. Smell hops, spices, liquorice, coffee and roasted malts. Taste like an avarage porter, with low alcohol percentage and easy to drink. Dark ingredients (roased ingredients, coffee, chocolate, liquorice), spices, and hints of hop.
