JorisPPattyn (9532) - Ursel, BELGIUM - DEC 31, 2007
Small greige head, fed by well-carbonated black beer with a mauve shine. Very little aroma at first - wet cardboard. Then some roasted/burnt malts appear, as well as dried berries and old coffee powder. Very expressed (-o?) coffee taste, even aftertaste of stale coffee-and-cream. Quite bitter edge, faintly hoppy, and a bit smokey. Liquid brown sugar solution. Medium bodied at best, bit slick. Rather light porter, not very assertive.

Mungo (2470) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - DEC 29, 2007
Bottle from Sainsburys. Dry powdery chocolate and coffee flavours with pleasant earthy hops. Flavours combine well. Tasty but feels slightly light to be a Winter Warmer.

DownsouthGav (601) - Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 22, 2007
Roasted niose, distinct coffe. Pours a huge foaming head - quite uncontrolled. Bottle conditioned nose and pours a smooth black beer. Distinct hoppy notes and some spices also detected. Taste is predominantly raosted coffee, giving way to malt, some sweetness, spice and hops. Nicely balanced although the medium aftertaste is a touch ordinary. A quite enjoyable porter that leans more to a stout.

Grovlam (4208) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 20, 2007
Bottle. [Another great tasting session @ Papsoe] Small fizzy beige head that mostly diminished. Mahogany color. Spare lacework. Lovely roasted malt and smoke notes. Light grain and caramel with light fruity notes. Over the palate moderated roasted malt and smoke. Medium bodied with an average carbonation and light dry texture. Mix of light to moderated bitter and sweet flavor in balance. Smokey lingering finish. Quit nice. 6 / 3 / 7 / 3 / 14
