Douberd (3712) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - NOV 18, 2015
(Mad Sød) 750 ml bottle at home, served into a shaker, ABV 6.7%% Very dark brown, almost black colour on the body, with a good sized and thick, brown head on top. Good retention. Faint aroma of chocolate and roasted malts. Great taste though, sweet, with light roasted malts and strong port wine notes, sweet chocolate on the finish. I don’t really get any of the popcorn, maybe at times but that’s more because I’ve read it as an ingredient. Medium body, soft carbonation. Quite good.

Bottle share from Jeremy. This one walked a fine line between porter and something a bit more potent. excellently captured the nature of the sweet/roasty style without overdoing, or undercutting, either.

Bottle, pours a dark brown with a thin beige cap. Nose is roasty, lightly sweet. Faint espresso. Taste is roasty, light cocoa, light mocha. I can imagine the popcorn, but its not obvious. Great stuff though.

750ml bottle pours out black topped with a tan head. Nose is roast malts bitter dark chocolate and some coffee notes. Taste is more of the dark roast malts chocolate coffee and a nice end.

Bue en bouteille de 75cl à la brasserie, couleur noire avec une mousse marron et une petite effervescence. Nez sur le café. Attaque sur le café et le chocolat et la caramel fin de bouche caramel du pop corn, très sucréé et donc mouelleuse en fin de bouche.

Barreras (1368) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - NOV 5, 2015
Pours a deep brown almost black color with a semi sweet chocolate aroma. Flavor is, coffee, chocolate with a slight silky butter popcorn finish. Aftertaste is smooth and enjoyable with little to no bitterness.

4oz on tap at Liberty’s for $4.50. In my notes I have this as "Mikkeller Popcorn Porter (Mad Sod)", I must have been a little buzzed. Really interesting flavor up front here. Some dark chocolate, coffee, nuttiness, and that confectionary sort of sweet-type desert popcorn. Hint of smoke. Moderate to bigger sweet taste, light bitterness. Bit of lingering sweet, bit of savory. Near-black color, slight red. Decent khaki head, good ridges of lace. Medium to bigger body. Good chewiness. Kind of slick, lighter carbonation. Nice kind of desert-like porter... Unique, complex, but a bit sweet for me.

Bue en bouteille de 75cl. Belle couleur moka foncé. Mousse beige. Nez café. Palais moka, café, sucre. Équilibre parfait. Certainement la meilleure porter que j'aie bue.
