Otje (678) - Veendam, - DEC 3, 2010
Bottle 0.5l batch79. Red-black beer with a biege head. Sourrish in smell and taste, coffee and some chocolate in the nose. Lots of coffee and chocolate in the taste too, bitterish and some acidity. Typical porter althought its rather sourrish, its good, nice one. Strange combi of sour and hops, but very well balanced. MF is a bit sticky.

Bottle, shared during our epic gaming weekend. Dark brown, bubbly light brown head. Hearty roast, bitter chocolate with fruity undertones. Full bodied for its ABV. Really nice.

djoeye (2759) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JAN 15, 2015
Black beer with light rusty brown head. Sweet fruity crispy dark malts, syrup, sugared plums and green leaves to the nose. Fruity taste; plum peels, coffee cream, chocolate, dry apple, leading to a soft flourish finish. Nice feel and body. Good brew.

Bottle, 500ml, from a Vinmonopolet in Oslo. A black colour with a large brown head. Aroma of sweet chocolate malt, some yeast notes. Flavour of chocolate malt with honey and coffee. Some underlying hop notes. Low to moderate carbonation. A slightly bitter, hoppy finish. Really enjoyed this.

This beer is pretty cool. It has a fairly sweet taste of roast and chocolate upfront. It sort of peters off, then all of a sudden there is a huge dark coffee resurgence that lingers. It’s really good.

Patrickctenchi (5218) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - FEB 28, 2013
Bottle: Batch 138, 2008 vintage....best by Jan ’10... Pours deep brown with a huge, fountain-cola, slow gushing, dark head. Aroma is smoke, chocolate. Taste is sweet, dark chocolate, roast coffee, malt. A slightly tangy bit of dark fruit. Very, very, nice.

hotstuff (4532) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - JAN 22, 2013
Backlog rating 12-06-2008. Bottle and Batch NR 79. This beer pours a medium size tan frothy, fizzy head that mostly diminished, opaque body, no visible carbonation, and a fair amount of lacing. The aroma is malty, chocolate, coffee, and roasty. The flavor mimics the aroma. The palate is smooth, thin and watery. This is a thin bodied Porter. Overall, this beer is too thin and watery tasting given the style and the flavor just did not do this beer justice.

AirForceHops (5029) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 10, 2012
500 ml bottle, purchased @ Julio’s Liquors. (had in my cellar about 6 months) Intensely dark brown with large beige head. Bottle has a bit too much carbonation. Aroma of chocolate, mild coffee, some dark fruits. Dry roasted coffee, roasted grain, hints of licorice and a bit of a citrus hop. Although the citrus is barely noticeable. A bit of lactose sugar as well. Medium in body leaning on the full side. The texture is on the creamy side but the fizzy/ over-carbonation hurts it I feel. Still really tasty.
