JorisPPattyn (7885) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAR 19, 2009
Dirty yellow-beige head, fast disappearing over reddish brown beer, hazed. End of bottle UFO-laden. Coffee, slightly salty, alginate-like, and very faint chocolate; roasted, especially after some warming up. Very smoked, very ashy flavour, and arachide, like an abandonned bartable with cigarettebutts in the ashtray, and some leftover peanuts, and reeking beerstains. Warming up, gets more typically roasted. Not very well-bodied, very dry, rather dusty MF. Special, maybe a tad too ideosyncratic.

fata2683 (2176) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAR 18, 2009
bottle, pours redish brown with a tall tan head. Toffee, roasted malt, and light coffee aroma. Nut brown kindof flavors, dark malt, some coffee, and nutty bread notes. Carbonation is moderate to high. Very easy to drink porter.

joergen (20656) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 7, 2009
Bottle in a hotel room in Bruxelles at 6 AM on a saturday morning. Hazy brown coloured with a medium sized fast disappearing head. Roasted aroma of hay, smoke and liquorice. Light roasted flavourt of hay, smoke and liquorice with notes of fruits. Fruity and roasted finish.

Schroppfy (2360) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - FEB 23, 2009
Very drinkable porter. More of an earthy/vegetal/woodsy (and yes, slightly sour) maltiness rather than chocolate. This is a nonchocolatey porter. A good bit of fresh nut meat (hazelnut, almond) flavor. Aroma of the woods and brown, layered sweet malt.

altonbrownd (3722) - Brussels, BELGIUM - FEB 8, 2009
Cracked Kettle. Nice brown porter from De Molen. Aroma of malts, chocolate. Taste of malts, chocolate and even licorice. A bit of sourness in the finish. A bit too sour for me, esp. for a porter.

Borresteijn (4634) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JAN 9, 2009
75cl Bottle from The Cracked Kettle, 5,2% ABV. Dark brown colour, off white disappearing head. Nice aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, some coffee, and a hint of sourness. Flavour is roasted malts, a watery sourness, a hint of chocolate. Finish is roasted and sour. Don’t like sour flavours, and this one has too much of it.

yespr (30908) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - DEC 29, 2008
33 cL bottle. Pours clear, golden and dark brown with a fully gone head. Mild spiced and light yeasty with a nice roasted malt aroma, mild acidic/citric note too. Light spiced, mild liqourice and a nice roasted malt flavour. Again with a more flavourful malt base than just roasted. Smooth and malty finish with a mild spice flavour.

MiP (13596) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - DEC 11, 2008
Bottle, 5.2%. Roasted and slightly burnt malt aroma. A little spicy. Dark brown colour, hint of red. Small floaties. The flavour is roasted with a little burnt malt again. Faint hint of creamy coffee with some grain sourness in the finish.
