RAYBOY01 (2012) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 23, 2006
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.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 15, 2006
(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

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - AUG 8, 2006
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.

EithCubes (5430) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 14, 2006
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.

rpattinson (84) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUN 1, 2006
Very dark brown with an even tan head; toffee, roast and hop aroma; very sweet/bitter taste with roast, chicory, liquorice, caramel and dates aromas; bitter finish with liquorice, hop, raisins, toast, coffee, and cream aromas. A legendary beer and one that easily lives up to its reputation. A seamless fusion of sweetness and bitterness (from both malt and hops), it explodes with flavour in the mouth. It finishes with a roasty bitterness that lasts and lasts. I think this is the highest score I’ve ever given a bottom-fermented beer. Simply wonderful. Who gives a toss if it tastes like a "porter"? Call it a Doppelbock, call it a Baltic Porter, or even an Imperial Münchner. It still tastes great. What else matters?

Terminus (3489) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 11, 2006
bottle-chestnut brown with a fizzy off-white head. aroma os lightly oxidized dark malts-chocolate, dusty esters, wet cardboard, light saltiness, and metallic tones. flavors are chocolatey sweet, highly cardboardy, oxidized, and lightly husky with a major alcohol kick on the finish for an 8% beer. This beer didn’t age very well-seems too old by the malt profile, but then seems too young by the alcohol kick. an enigma if you ask me. the fizzy palate doesnt help matters either.

GRM (3587) - Aylmer, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 4, 2006
Brown bottle, 0,5 l, 8 %, gift from Marc Gratton purchased somewhere in the Czech Republic (maybe that explains why what I tasted differs from many of the comments read), received March 3, 2006, expiry date: 04 07 06; eye: black with burgundy reflcections, clear (as opposed to veiled), coffee head taht disappears rapidly, no ’effervescence, no lacing; nose: I had to change glass (from calice to tulip) as I could not smell that beer at all, after this incident, it smelt of roasted malt but of an unknown torrefaction process and of dark fruits (raisins); mouth: surpisingly thin in the mouth but "fattens" as it warmed up, it is like a kiddy roller-coaster, a bit of roasted malit in opening and then caramel and caramel again, and underneath a little carpet of alcohol, and then bitterness appears, and the return of caramel, the caramel and alcohol are amplified as the beer warmed up, average body, nice carbonation; overall: glad to have tasted it FRANÇAIS Bouteille brune, 0,5 l, cadeau de Marc Gratton acheté directement en Républiche tchèque (ce qui explique peut-être pourquoi mon évaluation différe beaucoup de celles des autres) reçu le 3 mars 2006, date de péremption : 04 07 06; oeil : noire avec des reflets bourgognes, clair (par opposition à voilée), mousse café au lait qui disparaît rapidement, pas d’effervescence, pas de dentelle; nez : j’ai dû changer mon verre (calice à tulipe) tellement je peinais à sentir cette bière, après cette mésaventure, ça sentait le malt rôti mais d’un type de torréfaction inconnue et les fruits foncés (raisin); bouche : surprenamment mince en bouche mais devient plus « épaisse » alors qu’elle se réchauffe, on est dans des montagnes russes pour enfants, un peu de malt rôti en ouverture et puis du caramel et du caramel encore, avec sous ce dernier un petit tapis d’alcool, un peu d’amerume apparaît, puis c’est le retour du caramel, l’aspect sucré et l’alcool s’amplifient avec le réchauffement de la bière, corps moyen, bonne carbonatation; content d’y avoir goûté
