3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle 330 ml at home, poured into a snifter. ABV 7%
Pours a quite brown beer, not totally black but certainly dark. A very tall head on top, light beige in colour and somewhat thin, collapses slowly but steadily. Good lacing left around the glass.
Aroma is a nice combination of smoke and chocolate, along with some roasted malts, hints of alcohol and surprisingly, vanilla.
Taste has much more smoke in it than the aroma indicated. Again chocolate, lighter now. Coffee and light bitterness on the aftertaste.
Medium thin body, quite carbonated.
Overall very good, I was afraid it would be all smoke but itís nicely balanced, my only objection is the high carbonation.

Een aardige smoked porter, mist allen wat body. Ziet er wel mooi uit donker bruin met dikke schuimkraag, bezinksel en gist.

330ml bottle (shared by FatPhil, thanks). Pitch black color. Small size, brown head, stays. Roasted malts, sweet, milky notes in aroma. Salty roast and sweet notes in flavor at same time. Controversial, but still drinkable.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
330ml bottle (Bacchanalia, Cambridge)
Massive salty blue cheese aroma. Touch pf smokiness much later, in a wooly. Opened with a work of foam. Slightly fizzy dark reddy brown. In the palate itís a bit watery and fizzy, but really not saying 7% at all. Tastewise, itís kinda mellow in the mouth, just a little roast and smokiness, pretty nice from that aspect. Negatives spoil it a bit too much which is a shame.

Klein Duimpje is almost always good, this one is no exception. Itís a rich smokey porter, meant for advanced beer lovers.
