500ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Thought this might bring back memories of drinking in firkin pubs in the mid-to-late 90s.... it didn’t... but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. Dark brown pour, no head. Aromas of toast and raisins. Taste is strangely thin, but had more roast notes and toffee. Nice to have tried again.

Bottle from ABC Beers, Den Haag. Poured a deep black colour with a broken tan head and lots of broken lace. The aroma is peaty, but somewhat weak. The flavour is medium bitter with bags of liqourice, a little watery and a hint of sourness on the palate.

Pigs Ear! Clear dark brown beer. Light malty nose. Light semi dry palate. Sublte but bitter toffee. Hops provide mild fruit and not much bitterness.

JorgeLee (1572) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 7, 2012
Bottle from Kris Wines. Very deep black/brown colour, very small white head, looks quite carbonated. Chocolately malt aroma. Every so slightly watery and oily on palate. Dry bitterness very late on finish. Good solid porter.

GBZ59 (1217) - BARCELONA (Catalonia), SPAIN - MAY 23, 2012
Botella de 500ml. Vaso Tumbler. Saboreada en abr´12. Color rubí oscuro con tintes marrón rojizo a contraluz. Espuma bronceada de burbuja amplia. Capa fina con algunos collares. En nariz aromas de maltas torrefactas, frutos oscuros, levadura, notas de pan y lúpulos florales. Maltas torrefactas y fruta agria al primer sorbo, matices de caramelo de regaliz con notas de café. Los lúpulos reaccionan y liberan un refrescante amargor que lo inunda todo. Cuerpo medio y carbonatación suave. Paladar afrutado y lúpulizado con sensación aterciopelada. Ligeramente áspera en el intermedio redondeada por una leve astringencia en el final. Frutos oscuros en el retrogusto. Cerveza bien equilibrada: refrescante como una Weizen y sabrosa como una Oatmeal Stout es, sin embargo, una Porter que funciona como una perfecta cerveza para “ir de cañas”. 500ml bottle. Tumbler glass. Enjoyed on apr´12.Deep ruby in color, reddish brown to the light. Tan, large bubbled, froth. Thin crown with some collars left. To the nose roasted malts, dark fruits, yeast, bready notes & floral hops. Roasted malts & sour fruit at first sip, hints of fluid licorice candies & coffee notes. Hops react & liberate a refreshing bitterness all over. Medium body, soft carbonation. Palate is fruity & hoppy with a velvet sensation. Slightly harsh in the middle rounded with slightly astringent finish. Dark fruit on the aftertaste. Well balanced beer: refreshing as a Weizen & flavorful as an Oatmeal Stout but Porter in fact performing as a nice session beer.
