3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle 0.33l from De Bierkoning Amsterdam, The Netherlands. 19.06.2016. Taste with Ogi. Pour it brown color with small white head. Aroma some chocolate kind of spice. Taste caramel, some chocolate, malty feel, but quite flat at the end, soft carbonation, astringent. Ok not so perfect!

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Decent aroma, some caramel, toffee, chocolate and fig-like sweetness (special-B?), that also dominates the taste. Notes of roasted malt but on the whole the malts seem to lean more to a dubbel than a porter. Head is brownish grey and fairly thick. Colour is very dark brown. Lots of bitterness failing to counteract the sweetnes. Doesn’t really balance well, more combo of big tastes. Decent for its style, but even though it is a local, it won’t become a favourite. Too many better brews at this flavour point.

Bottle in Amsterdam. Nice dark brown body with medium head. Nose of chocolate, coffee and caramel. Taste similar of coffee and chocolate. Funky notes. Bitter in the finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Slight/medium aroma of malts, caramel, dried fruit, liquorice, chocolate and roasted malts.
Turbid/opaque ruby/dark brown beer with a slight/medium beige/brown head.
Starts medium sweet with malts, caramel, dried fruit, liquorice and chocolate; ends slightly bitter and dry with roasted malts.
This beer is rather intense, complex and balanced. Overall; it is decent, but it got nothing going for it though. A rather simple Porter by the books.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
33cl bottle, served in snifter glass. Poured a dark brown with a two finger tan head. Aromas of dark chocolate, licorice, caramel, roasted coffee beans. Taste: pretty much a continuation of the aromas, with notes of vanilla, dates, Haagse Hopjes, some herbal notes. Softly carbonated, a light to medium body with a long bittersweet finish. A very good Porter.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Had a bottle at Põrgu in Tallinn recently. Light brown, clear, small scattered head. Smelled and tasted very un-portery, more like a BIPA, pretty bitter, and more bready than roasty, dryish bready finish. Medium carbonation. Not impressed, but overall not bad. Pretty easy-drinking.
