alaskanwarren (286) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 28, 2008
Pours a dark red mahogany with a light tan head. Very minimal lacing. Aroma is toasty, hint of alcohol and plum. No spice or hops. Flavor is warm and toasty. Hop presence is all but absent. Only a hint of spice and citrus. Malt is dominant, with lots of coffee and cola vibes. Light bodied, mild cloying on the finish. Feels appropriate to a light bodied porter like this. Very enjoyable and drinkable porter. Much thanks to Doppelganger for sending this one my way.

Rastacouere (6174) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 17, 2008
Cask in Portree. Mostly clear dark brown with red reflections. A strange combination of butterscotch and chocolate mellow roastiness. Barely any fruitiness, but soft cerealic mouthfeel. Straight up roasted grain finish. Rather timid all throughout. The bar was not very crowded, I suspect the turnover is not that good.

thewolf (11931) - Kolding, DENMARK - JAN 19, 2008
Bottle @ YNWA, Kolding. Pours a great mahogany red with a giant creamy cóff white head - super lacing on my glass. Aroma is malrt, lightly roasted and with a fair amount of dried fruits. Quite low carbonation. Flavour is round, sweet, rather roasted with a heavy tone of berries and dried fruits. Nice porter.

A Mes rate: 50cl bottle from the Bottle Stop.
Opaque black brown with a good beige head. Sweet malt aroma with bread and yeast. Nice lightly sour flavour with nice malty notes and some very slight but welcome bitterness. Hints of toffee. Nice and tangy and sharp. Not amazing but interesting.
