MartinT (8328) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 9, 2011
My Bottom Line:
This complex Porter presents raisins, coffee beans, chocolate and licorice in an oily and sweet body which might get cumbersome after a while.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam circles the dark brown.
-The low carbonation makes the body feel heavier.
-Fruity angles don’t necessarily mesh with the bold coffee flavors.
-The complexity is impressive, but drinkability is too low for my tastes in the style.
-Fruitiness nears on being acetic at times.

Bottle.

Koelschtrinker (11753) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 11, 2011
Eher milder Antrunk, in dem die Malzigkeit nur bedingt durchdringt, andere Aromen sind leider ebenfalls rar. Zum Ende trocken, dafür intensiver, wenig fruchtig in eine blumige Hopfenrichtung. /9/8/8//8
