Bottle 75 cl. BBE 1/12/2017. Sweet, more to the portwine in aroma. Quite strong and boozy on taste, some salty notes along with soya sauce in taste. Something wrong with the bottle? A bit weird in taste, some old coffee perhaps too. Some bitterness in aftertaste

Bottle from The Beer Stein back in 2008. This beer was infected, as there was some sourness to it...not like the other ratings here.

(750ml bottle best by 1/12/2017, brewed 11/12/2007) dark brown, soapy tan bubbles. Nose of honey, fudge, rich, oyster, so unique, liking the oxidation here. Smells so good. Taste of fudge, milk chocolate, dry, oyster or some other unique flavor, rich and awesome. Unique, rich and awesome.

Head appeance is impressive considering the age of this beer.
I cannot believe this is porter. It tastes closer to a ris rather than a porter. Pours black, thin tan colored head. The aroma is honey, chocolate malt and an aging funkiness. This beer tasts like it is on the brink of turning sour, however because it has yet to turn, the flavors are bold and delicious. The chocolate and booze are deceptive but blend perfectly with sweet flavors of honey and molasses.

Beer is from 2005 and i cannot believe it. It tastes more like an imperial stout than a porter. The differences between this beer and the standard porter (which i love ) is the honey and more bubbly mouth feel in this than the standard porter. Wonderful
