2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, 8%. Dark brown colour, small light brown head. Smoky flavour, a little bacon. Too sweet and too smoky for me.

3.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: OCT 5, 2006 Almost black, has an amazing very clear dark copper colour, and a medium off-white head. Aroma is very faint, chocolate, some earthy hops and some light caramel and alcohol. The body is magnificently full, I have to idea where the aroma went, as the palate is beautifully balanced with only a small amount of roast malt coming though. There is a slightly buttery feel in the mouth, as well as some molasses. A toffee like sweetness comes out in the finish, the alcohol is non-existent. A great beer, not sure if I’d call it a standard porter though.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: AUG 24, 2006 Really interesting "porter"...strong roasted flavors of caramel, brown sugar, molasses, with definite smoky notes. Alcohol is very prominent, enjoyably so, though. I’m not particulary bothered by the incongruities to style that seem to trouble the other raters. This is a fine, drinkable porter/doppelbock, and I would seek these out again.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle 50 cl) Pours a clear, reddish mahogany with a small, off-white head. Sweetish, roasted malt aroma. A very solid body with roasted accents of malt. Sweetish with a bitter malt finish. Decent all right, but there isn’t much Porter about this. 130806

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Interesting porter. Very fruity, with something reminiscent of dark roasted nuts and fruit jamiiness mixed with some caramelized brown sugar. Very roasty, with strong hints of alcohol, and a mouthfeel that is almost juicelike. Reminiscent of a doppelbock, moreso than a porter.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Sweet roasty malty aroma with nice hopping, a little funk, and raisin/prune. Very dark brown with a medium-brown head. Taste is rasin, prune/plum, hops, funk, grape, roast malt - make that caramelized sugar. Brown sugar and...soy sauce? Very vinous, strong alcohol realized through almost cloying sweetness. Medium body and a sticky dry finish. Doesn’t blend well. Not a big fan of this.

Brown color, very dark, with medium sized head. Mild aroma of caramel, some vanilla, chestnut honey, light talc, light oxidization. The mouthfeel is smooth and soft, there is a good flavor of caramel and chocolate, with moderate residual sweetness; there is a light nutty presence; the bitterness is moderate too; the final shows a very light oxidization.
Mature, very good.
Dark brown color; generous head. The aroma is sweet, of malt, caramel and chestnut honey. Medium bodied, quite sweet taste, with a good balance of mellow caramel and burnt sugar, giving the right bitterness. The final has some burnt sugar and roasted nuts. Pleasant.
