Aromatisches dunkles Hoepfner Malz und eine Gabe feinsten Tettnanger Aromahopfens verleihen diesem Bier seinen einzigartigen Charakter.

UPDATED: MAY 1, 2015 Many thanks for this beer to kevnic2008. Piwo o ladnej pecherzykowatej piance. Rubinowej barwie. Zapach slodowo karmelowy. W smaku podobne wrazenia moze jeszcze nieco mlecznej czekolady oraz palonego karmelu. Chmielnosc jak na Portera niemieckiego dosc dobra.

BierTrinkerin (1) - SPAIN - JUL 21, 2014 does not count
Strong in flavour, but not so much in alcohol with 5,8%. Balanced taste, the dark colour is obtained only with dark malt. Balanced taste, aroma hopped. Perfect for a Dumpling dish at Mosquito, Barcelona.

Idiosynkrasie (5151) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUN 29, 2014
330ml bottle [courtesy of barlebier, thank you very much!]. Clear, ruby red glowing dark brown colour with average to huge, frothy to creamy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, beige head. Sweet-ish dark malty aroma, hints of malt lozenge, a touch of grassy hop. Taste is dry dark malty, subtle malt sweetness, slightly metallic and grassy hoppy overtones; moderately sweet dark malty finish, grassy and metallic hoppy overtones. Narrow, restricted, unpleasant metallic touch, more a Dunkel than a Porter for me.

Medium light brown head. Clear dark-red/black colour. Veeery sweet honey aroma with a slight roast note. Tastes a bit like smoked beer with a long, oaky finish with roasted coffee notes. A really good one!

bartlebier (2760) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - FEB 20, 2014
6x33cl bottles BB AUG 2014, Edeka Lukasiewicz, Karlsruhe. Pours a runny red-hued brown with small beige head. Aroma of bayleaf, Ricola and caramel. Wide array of tastes that take a while to come together: caramel, strong Tettnang fresh grass, Ricola herbal caramel, cocoa powder, Vitamalz lurking around the corner. Lingering floral-bitter aftertaste on a largely roast-dry palate. Yeast not doing that much to tie these all together - brewed according to the German bottom-fermenting (near-extinct) porter tradition? Anyway: a rare and not wholly convincing blend of styles, a rare occasion, this SW-German porter. Thanks to Cantabrian for putting this on my local radar, from halfway around the globe!
