Ceramic bottle from old notes. Pours brown in color with a medium sized beige head. The aroma and flavor had roasted malts, a strong fruity character that showed some tartness and acidity, caramel, brown sugar, some earthy notes, interesting mix, but not my thing.

Big bottle as Hoogstraten Poorter (from beerExpress). Pours brown with beige head. The head stays for some time. Aroma is fruits, rotten apples, malt. Flavor is sweet, malt, caramel, fruits. Alcohol is well covered and body feels rather light. Overall: good.

Brown beer, tan head. Nose is fruity, slightly sweet and with malty notes, perfume. Flavor is floral hops and malt, perfume notes. Some hops in the finish. Definitely not a porter.

OK, maybe they got me with the ceramic bottle and flip-top.....but I really liked this beer. This was when I was first getting into Belgianís, but this resembles a porter more than a Belgian Ale. It does have that "Belgian" taste though, from the kind of yeast they use maybe? Is it worth $10 for a 750ml?....probably not, but I am not complaining b/c it was very tasty and a good experience. Donít know if Iíd buy again for that coin, but if you havenít tried yet and money isnít really an object, I would recommend at least sampling this beer.

750cc bottle. Lovely dark brown and reddish colour. On the sweet side. Hints of molasses and maple syrup. A bit nutty also. Some bitterness in the end. Very pleasant.

Natai (121) - Sacramento, California, USA - DEC 28, 2014
Pours a dark amber-red with a respectable but short-lived frothy head. Good lacing with a light aroma reminiscent of raspberry. Smooth flavor of light grains quickly transitioning to blackberry and raspberry. A liytle on the watery side. Not a true porter by any means, but not altogether bad either.

"probably a bad bottle, but as it was my first time trying it, iíll have to rate it from the one time. upon opening, the beer exploded out of the heavy ceramic bottle, and continued to overflow for several minutes. i was able to pour it with two fingers of head. i wasnít expecting a traditional porter (which it is not), but i donít know if the funkiness was on purpose or if the beer was totally spoiled, as i had no frame of reference. i was looking forward to trying a belgian porter, but as we had it, it poured thin, smelled funky, if not spoiled, had a thin mouthfeel and a rather unique, but ultimately boring flavor...like a flanders/porter hybrid. maybe iíll try it again one day to see if what we had was a true representation of this beer, but at the price, it may be a while."

Pours out dark with an oily skin of a head. Dried fruit aroma , hint of molasses. Taste is on the sweet side, fruit, sugar. Taste dissipated quickly, overall mouthful is slightly watery.
