Bottle. Modest malty aroma. Lively beer with a thick head. Fresh taste of sweet malt and hops, has a subtle sourness and a bitter hoppy aftertaste. Porter-ish indeed.

Something between a porter and a sour. Not very tasty. Disappointing beer from De Molen.

33 cL bottle at home. Pours hazy brown with a large tan head. Aroma has some cacao, chocolate, dark fruits and tartness. Taste has some chocolate, malts, but again some tartness. Medium body and carbo. Something is not right.

30th August 2014
Opaque dark brown beer, small pale tan head. Palate starts smooth and slightly soft but develops a minerally crispness. Very mild dark malts are subsumed by a strong fruity tang. Touches of malt cream and dark chocolate before a light crisp finish. A very light and tangy porter.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
(De Molen Summer Porter) 330 ml bottle at home, poured into a small snifter. ABV 6.8%
Dark brown colour on the body, with a tall beige head, quite thick although bubbly, with good retention, leaving light lacing around the glass.
Aroma of chocolate and malts, light acidity in there, a bit peppery too.
Taste of oats, light chocolate, roasted malts, light soy sauce, more chocolate as it warms up.
Medium thin body, soft carbonation.
Overall okay, refreshing porter.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
bark brown colour, huge beige-ish head, which lasts for several minutes;aroma of roasted malts, some coffee, lemony notes, wood, and maybe sour cherry; taste of roasted malts and intensive acidic sourness...I don’t know, whether it is the result of an error, or they intended to brew a sourish porter, but, anyway the result is not really convincing...

Bottle. Deep dark brown color. Pours a huge head. Roast, chocolate and a hint of cherry in the shy aroma. Malty sweet flavor with hints of roast and cherry. Has some upcoming sourness. Nice.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Dark brown - black pour with rich frothy tan head. Aroma of burnt grain, lemony notes, liht funky aromas, leather, forest floor, mushroomy aromas, rotten grain. Not bad, but something seems fishy. Taste pretty much confirms an infection, very lactic, mushroomy, rotten grain, lemony acidity, light acetic notes. Blech. Reporting this because I don’t see the other raters commenting on this but for a beer that does not say "Black Sour" all over it, this is definitely a drain pour infection for me.
