TheCametron (1877) - CZECH REPUBLIC - DEC 7, 2014
Bottle. Not sure what makes this a ’summer’ porter. Pours Darkest Brown with a beige head. Chocolate, coffee and a sourish element that I didn’t enjoy at all. Not sure if that was the intention but it didn’t work for me. Poor.

Maakun (826) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - NOV 28, 2014
Bottle. Black with very big fluffy beige head. Massive sour berries and amarena cherries, yeast, wood, light ash and dry old coffee. Quite sour, with a hint of sweet malts and dry bitter finish. Medium bodied. Not sure if it's supposed to be such a sour beer but it's really not bad.

TBone (12998) - 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 (20919) - 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.

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 (17) - 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.

Benzai (8986) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - OCT 22, 2014

Theydon_Bois (9944) - 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 (6337) - 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.
