OK, something must have gone wrong with the batch (Lot A houdbaar tot einde 03, 2013). It’s so disappointing to buy a special beer and that you are looking forward to drinking -- and instead you get a mouthful of chlorophenolic scariness. Totally undrinkable. This could be due to bleach/chlorine or chloramines in the water (at a high rate) or, more likely, an infection, because I can’t imagine they over-dosed the porter with whole hops (another cause for strong chlorophenolic aroma and taste). Hmm, it could maybe be too much peat-smoked malt plus an infection. But in any case: undrinkable. A smoked porter should be porter first, full of malty goodness, with the rauch malt adding a little extra character and interest. This little brewery contracts out some of their beers, so maybe they can blame it on the contract brewery. But to be successful, you need to have consistent good quality. This is an unfortunate beer. Avoid it.
