From a bottle which was half a year past it’s date, however this probably didn’t affect the taste or appearance. O.K. brew, some chocolate, however a bit thin and the smoked flavours are only limited present. There are many better (smoked)porters available...

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle thanks to Ingo! Sampled on September 18, 2015.
Hazy dark brown to black color, smallish teal head. Cocoa, chocolate, smoked scent at first, goes somewhat towards "prickig korv" while warming up. Taste is chocolate, smoke, some toffee, "prickig korv". Medium mouthfeel, medium low bitterness.
Had half a bottle (shared one on two), enjoyed it at first, but after finishing my glass felt that was quite enough for me. The smoke goes more to lightly smoked sausage than that of wood and tar, which I personally would’ve enjoyed more.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
33 cl. bottle @ Uitspanning Boslust, Utrecht.
Dark brown with an off-white head. I think this bottle was a gusher because the whole of the neck held no beer anymore. Roasted malts aroma with of course lots of smoke. Taste is sweet with again (too much) smoke. After a few minutes however the smoke somewhat subdues, leaving a much more enjoyable beer. Quite thin bodied but decent nonetheless.

Mooiezwarte kleur met een goede lichtbruine kleur kraag. Ruikt niet zo sterk. Beetje chocolade. Smaakt chocolade, bitter, zoetig. Beetje dun.
