KoNrRiI (1215) - Århus, DENMARK - JUN 24, 2015
0.5 bottle. Opening accompanied by a new-years-champage-like burst, dark brown color and a medium, (discounting the champagne effect), cream head. Sweet aroma of caramel, dark fruits, delicate molasses, and some wood. Taste is sweet, dark fruity, malty, a tad tart, prune, very well-balanced. Full body, creamy/thick texture, and a flat carbonation. Finish brings even more prunes, more dark fruits, and more unusual sweet and sour goodness. Overall the infrequent burst did not seem to influence the beer’s enjoyability at all and the brew is splendid; the unusual prune-like flavor works well in its favor.

Flaske 0,5 liter, en super dejlig og lækker porter, smager bedst ved de 8~10 grader ikke varmere.

probstblueribbon (3717) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 26, 2015
50 cl bottle from Bieropholie, served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass. BB 28-11-2013.

App.: Deep brown-black with a decent mocha head. Aroma: Lots of dark chocolate, a touch smoky, very deep, dark, sweet, rich and inviting, milk chocolate, molasses, that grape jelly aroma that I get a lot from big dark beers, a bit of bright berry-like fruitiness, this has held up well. Palate: Medium+ body, somewhat restrained carbonation. Flav.: Lots of slightly bright dark dried fruit (big prune/plum notes), dark chocolate, lightly tart, molasses, a bit of black licorice, so much “fresh” dark dried fruit; off-dry with moderate bitterness and a long, mouth-coating finish that has prune/plum as the main element with a bit of dark chocolate behind it.

1.5 years beyond shelf life and holding up nicely. I have a more recent bottle from LCBO...how will it fare?

Nice drinking porter. Not that long acquired. A residual bitterness but would have liked to get prime hop flavour.

martin00sr (2748) - Haderslev, DENMARK - MAR 6, 2015
Nearly black with frothy light tan head. Roasted aroma, coffee, licorice and chocolate. Flavour has more licorice with a little caramel sweetness and well balanced, lasting bitterness. I get a whiff of smoke or tar. Mouthfeel is creamy, finish gets a little rough. Nice one.

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!
