Kolaboracja duńskiego Midtfyns z holenderskim De Molenem po prostu nie może się nie udać. Z takim przekonaniem otwierałem butelkę X Porteru. Ładny, niemalże czarny kolor zwieńczony brązową pianą zapowiadał emocje. Już przy nalewaniu poczułem aromat czekolady. Po zbliżeniu nosa do piwa dotarły również karmel i trochę kawy! Pierwszy łyk był poezją! Gęsty nieco trunek o dość sporej zawartości alkoholu przyjemnie rozgrzał przełyk! Nie było to jednak natarczywe uderzenie alkoholu, ale szlachetne nuty! Karmel i czekolada, nieco słodka dominowały i sprawiały, że każdy łyk sprawiał wiele przyjemności! Świetne piwo, może nie na letnie klimaty, ale przy nieco chłodniejszych wieczorach będzie świetnym wyborem!

deepeary (304) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 19, 2014
500 ml bottle from the LCBO. BB 10-04-2015. Black with mocha head. Smells sweet, molasses, cocoa, cola, cherry, sugar. Taste is very sweet with similar notes. Syrupy mouthfeel. 106 IBU stated on the bottle, but doesn’t taste very bitter. This one was in the cellar for a year, I remember it being better fresh.

Lilja (2184) - Malmö, SWEDEN - NOV 14, 2014
En fyra år gammal flaska köpt på SB. Smak och doft av choklad, kaffe, torkad frukt, lakrits, portvin med brända toner och aska. Bra balans, rund och len, mycket smak med fin beska. Riktigt gott.

Vignale (2573) - Malmö, SWEDEN - NOV 9, 2014
En fyra år gammal flaska köpt på SB. Trots att det bara är en 8%-ig porter såå är det en riktigt tung pjäs som står sig bra i jämförelse med hel&verdoemenis. Ursprungligen nog ganska kärv men nu söt, med mörk torkad frukt, portvin, choklad, kaffe och bara i eftersmaken lite kärvare saltlakrit, aska och aningens brändbeska. Riktigt riktigt bra med stor kropp, stora smaker och bra balans.

Frothmeister (633) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 14, 2014
500ml bottle. Pours pitch black with a mocha head. Aromas of molasses, cocoa, raisin, dark rum, and a light note of red licorice. The taste has decent bitterness, coffee, red licorice, and dried dark fruits up front, medium sweetness, dark roasty malt notes, espresso, and a light citrusy streak that cuts through the heavy flavours with more date, and raisin. Solid.
