Bottled bought in Den Haag. Brown color with a very fluffy tan head, keeps a nice lacing until the end. Aroma is sweet roasted malt, hints of caramel. Flavor is roasted malt and bitter. Mouthfeel is long bitterness. I really liked this beer.

330ml bottle (Alus Celle, Riga)
Pleasant grainy aroma, nice level of roast, but good husks too. Nice deep red, brief head. Lovely rich roasty taste, tons of husks, lots of barley. Nice to see a porter just being a porter and not attempting to be stout. Hint of coffee too. Quite soapy hops. Finish drying, and bitter. Interesting one.

330ml bottle. Clear dark copper color. Medium size, yellowish brown head, stays. Looks bit light for a porter. Roasted malts, sweet, cocoa, bit dusty notes in aroma. Nice roast, spicy hops, grainy, dusty, herbal in taste. Lovely spicy hops in aftertaste. Alcohol is very well hidden. Drinkability is very high. Well done!

Black, medium white head. Sweet toffee and roasty nuts on the nose. Full-bodied, sweet yet not too much so. Roasty, nutty, with loads of caramel. Some residual sourness. Finishes smooth, sweet and roasty. Lovely.

Bottle 33cl. Ruby red, near brown with an off white head that fades a little. Aroma of hops, little IPA like. There’s also a sour touch to it. The beer is not very syruppy. There’s a smoky taste to it at first which turns to another IPA like bitterness. Good beer, but not my taste.

well this is most likable porter aroma wise, but the taste is so plane for the aroma. A lot of chocolate malt but that is it, nothing complex

Zwart bier met veel schuim. Smaak is zoet en rokerig met caramel, chokolade en port. Erg goed bier wat mij betreft.

A dubbel-porter, eh? Caramel and spice. Higher than normal carbonation than your average porter. It works, I reckon.
