Bottle @ RG 20. Brown with little head. Smells like grass, cherries, coffee and lemon. Light roasty and dry flavor.

Richmond 20th. Dark brown, but clear. Little head. Aroma is lightly chocolate, a touch tart. Flavor is quite nice, lots of chocolate, some dark fruit. Pretty good.

Drake (8563) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JUN 9, 2013
750 mL bottle shared by Kinz at the 20th Richmond Gathering. Thanks! Pours a dark reddish brown color with a thin tan head. Fair head retention. Aroma of dry roast, nuts, mild tart fruity notes. The taste is chocolate, nutty notes, sweet malts, herbal hops. Medium bodied. Nice.

Lukaduke (2194) - Portland, Maine, USA - JUN 2, 2013
Draft at Pro Pig. Pours a deep brown umber color with a finger of khaki foam. Lots of roasty malts and burnt chocolate. Sweet molasses, caramel, fig and a pretty thin body. Decent but nothing to special.

dandeman (508) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 25, 2013
Aroma: Chocolate, roasted, nuts and coffee but on a very weak intensity. Appearance: Intense black with a café-creme head, average thickness, dense, with a very nice lacing. Taste: Attack is sweet with notes of milk chocolate, caramel, malted milk and honey. It is surprising how the roasted accents are not sticking out and by the same fact leaving a very weak roasted bitterness. Everything happens in sugars. Almost no wood, roast and smoke accents. Deceiving a bit.

PhillyCraft (3228) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 24, 2013
Sample from bill at Prohibition Pig, dark pour with creamy head. Notes are a little thin compared to the bourbon barrel version I had a month ago but not bad. Notes of smoke, roasty malt or grain, dark fruit, sweet figs, and some rust in the finish. Not bad.

Des arômes de café, de chocolat et de réglisse noire. Des saveurs de chocolat et de malt rôti avec des notes de café et de vanille et très peu d’amertume. Un délicieux porter qui se boit facilement. Un autre produit Hopfenstark à découvrir.

lesifflebiere (1271) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 12, 2013
Liquide d’un noir bien opaque, avec reflets bruns à la lumière, elle est assez épaisse et la mousse se fait rare. Au nez et en bouche, saveurs convenues : café, chocolat au lait, notes de vanille, et discrète finale de petits fruits confits. L’effervescence, comme la plupart des produits Hopfenstark, est plutôt limitée, mais dans ce cas-ci ça laisse toute la place à la saveur, comme le veut le style. Pas le meilleur porter baltique sur le marché, mais une belle tentative et une réussite en générale.

pr_montreal (3) - Montréal, CANADA - MAR 10, 2013 does not count
Cette Porter de 8%est brun foncé. La mousse beige qui s’attarde à apparaître et qui ne dure pas très longtemps laisse voir une mince dentelle sur le bord du verre. Son arôme laisse en bouche un goût subtile de fruits et une amertume légèrement fumé. Cette bière ce bois facilement et on y goutte davantage lorsqu’elle est aux alentours de 10 degrés. À boire dans un verre ballon.
