TBone (12966) - Pori, FINLAND - NOV 17, 2014
Bottle 330ml (AIH40)
Dark brown color, medium-sized brownish head. Cellary, slightly tart, toasted aroma. Medium-bodied. Toasted maltyness but mostly tartish citrus. Bottled 06/2014 but certainly a bit infected.

oh6gdx (20883) - Vasa, FINLAND - NOV 17, 2014
Bottled@AIH40 (from biernavigator). More or less black colour, huge off-white head. Aroma is nutty, mild acidic wood, some toffee and a bit spicy. Flavour is acidic wood (quite lactic), mild toast and some slight nutty notes. Actually I’m not sure if this is intended to be slightly lactic, or of it’s an infection, as the tart/sour notes kind of does suit it.

fonefan (35735) - VestJylland, DENMARK - NOV 6, 2014

Bottle 330ml.

[ As De Molen Summer Porter ].
Clear dark black brown color with a large, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, off-white to light beige head. Aroma is moderate to heavy malty, roasted, burnt, dark roasted, moderate herbs - grass, sour matl - oat. Flavour is moderate sweet, light acidic and light to moderate bitter with a long duration, sour roasted, milk - lactic - oat, roasted, green hoos. Body is medium, texture is oily to watery, carbonation is soft - fizzy. Think infected but wright now it works okay ;D [20140929]

cattrall (15) - Midlevels, HONG KONG - NOV 2, 2014
Overall pleasant. Not the best porter I’ve had. Pours with a thick head that remains for a while. Dark coffee chocolate. Would drink again.

Vaiz (3531) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - OCT 30, 2014
Bottle at home. Black pour, off-white head. Aroma is funky, earthy, brett and quite roasty. Flavor is sour, metallic, roasted and messy. Unbalanced.

Benzai (8774) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - OCT 22, 2014
Bottle @ home. Opaque black color, medium to full sized beige head. Aroma is malts, earthy, leaves. Taste malts, lightly dusty, earthy, slightly metallic, leaves and unfortunately a slight sourish hint. Decent body and carbonation. I don’t like it. 5-3-4-3-10.

Theydon_Bois (9729) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - OCT 19, 2014
Bottle at Arendsnest, Amsterdam, 28/09/14. Extremely dark mahogany brown with a decent khaki covering. Nose is roast malt, lactic rinse, spice, toffee, brown bread. Taste carries more lactic twinges, cocoa rub, toffee, dark berries, pinch of spice. Medium bodied, light spritzy carbonation, semi drying close laced with dark berry tarteness. Ok sour-ish porter.

DSG (6261) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - OCT 12, 2014
[9/29/14] Bottle at Arendsnest in Amsterdam. Black with a light brown head. Aroma of roast, coffee, acidic fruitiness and a bit of “green” hops notes. Roasty fruity flavor with some acidity and some bitterness in the finish. Medium-bodied, over-carbonated. Quite easy-drinking. Seems a bit infected, but it works quite alright.

2.8
   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 11/20
Idiosynkrasie (4026) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - OCT 6, 2014
330ml bottle. Opaque, darkest brown colour with average to huge, firm, frothy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, beige head. Minimally sweet-ish, roasty, dark malty aroma, chocolately notes, burnt coffee, herbal hoppy overtones. Taste is dry, bitter, slightly tart, roasty dark malty, a touch of lactose, hints of herbal and bitter hop. Recalcitrant, in no way flattering, far from yummy; simultaneously not mediating a feeling of being worthy to be further scrutinised nor divulging hitherto unknown regions of taste necessitating acquisition - simply not good.

tderoeck (5054) - Gent, BELGIUM - OCT 1, 2014

Little cloudy dark purple brown beer, creamy huge beige irregular head, unstable, dissipates quickly. Aroma: bit metallic, sourish, some vinegar, infected? MF: lots of carbon, medium to light body. Taste: sourish start, roasted, some mocha, bit unpleasant. Aftertaste: sourish, metallic, bit of caramel, nutty, unpleasant sourness, vinegar. Yuck.
