kiwianer (3428) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 4, 2012
Robust white head, black body. Smell chocolate-bitter, a bit toasted bread. The taste is in the beginning sweet-sour, then sweet-malty, roasted-herb. The aftertaste is a bit bitter-roasty. A good one!

Dark reddish brown clear beer, thick biscuit coloured head. Crisp and light palate contrast with the soft head. Malty with a very light touch of smoke. Subtle hop in the dry frothy finish. Okay but just a little dull.

islay (1862) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 22, 2012
11.2 oz. bottle, purchased by my mom at the brewery during her trip to the Netherlands in the spring of 2008. This was before it was distributed in the U.S. (maybe it was being distributed only in New Jersey or something; I donít recall exactly). Thanks Mom! Labeled with a date of 3/11/10 (as I have Americanized it); presumably this is a best-by date, in which case, oops, missed it by a couple of years. Oh well. It definitely wasnít spoiled. Split three ways at a tasting on 4-20-12. Sweet smell features raisin, coffee with milk, and milk chocolate scents. Pours brown with an amber hue. Flavor matches the aroma. Medium body. Quite lively and sharp in the palate. Thereís something a little different about this beer on which I canít put my finger. Not memorable overall.

Quevillon (2749) - 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.
