Kavu (4102) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 15, 2011
Pours pitch black with a low brown head. Aroma is light with roasted malts. Flavor is roasted malts with a hoppy finish. Very well balanced. One if the best low ABV porters I’ve tried.

HogTownHarry (6375) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 23, 2011
August 15, 2011 - on draught at Porterhouse (Covent Garden). Deep clear ruby with a tan/light brown creamy head, doesn’t diminish at all - looks like it should be a dessert topping. Beautiful simple light porter aroma - non-acidic roast, dry, a bit of mineral and cocoa - vague . Taste follows - simple, smooth, light body, mild carbonation, quick-finishing with no real aftertaste, just some dry grainy roast and light herbal bitterness. So good, and I love how there is no sweetness or syrup to it. Nice one.

Sigmund (6719) - Tau, NORWAY - AUG 17, 2011
330 ml bottle with tear-off cap, from Ølkonsortiet, Aalborg. ABV is 5%. Very dark brown to black colour, large beige head. Roasty aroma with notes of mild coffee and dark chocolate, a hint of wood and bonfires, also hints of hops. Very nice roasty flavour, fairly dry, notes of coffee, hints of dark bitter chocolate and wood, decent hops throughout. Not extreme in any way, just well balanced and highly drinkable.

Dark brown, almost black. Clear. Has an off-white head, medium duration. Sweet aroma, malty, caramel, toffee, faint light chocolate. Sweet flavor, a bit too sweet, but still nice. Light syrupy texture and soft carbonation.

redlight (2318) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUL 25, 2011
draft @ redlight redlight. Hints of chocolate on the nose. Very thick mouthfeel with rich dark malt flavors, bitter dark chocolate, a hint of astringency from the black malts but the late edition hops seem to balance it out. Great session beer.

NobleSquirrel (3439) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 12, 2011
Nitro draft at Fountainhead. Pours a brownish black with a tan head. Nose is faintly roasty and charred. some grassy hop notes and charcoal seem to dominate. On tasting, it is creamy with cocoa and more of the acrid charcoal notes coming through. Soft on the palate and a bit thin bodied. Pretty one dimensional but also unoffensive. Okay.
