   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 17/20
tseo (153) - Athens, - AUG 19, 2012
Aroma: A great, chocolate-oriented smell. Lesser creamy, earthy, coffeeish aromas emerge. A very nice combination of scents that brings to my mind of chocolate mousse and baileys. Also, some minor toffee and chestnut elements. Mouthfeel: Medium body, oily and foamy texture. Still. Taste: Mmmmmmmmmmm. Highly roasted and quite bitter. Chocolate dominates on the palate. Finish: Long, bitter and toasty. A nice, gentle tartness lingers at the edges. (I think fuggles hops impart a certain orangey quality to it) Overall: Great overall. Spot-on combination of flavours and aromas.

corkyrory66 (864) - BELGIUM - JUL 3, 2015
Voici donc un porter émanant de la Grèce antique …, et même actuelle grâce à cette micro. 5 malts au menu : pale ale, munich, coffee, crystal et choco. Houblonné au Fuggles. Sans doute un peu de miel dans la compo. Couleur noir soutenu, avec des reflets roux en transparence. Clarté nette. Mousse à flocons très fins, qui nappe un peu à la façon d’une quad. Arômes de malt café, pointe de porto, raisins secs, miel de romarin, candi brun, chocolat, noisette et du pain complet. 1ère bouche souple à l’entrée sur malt et café, mais la bouche ne vaut pas le nez. Arrière-bouche un rien grillée, avec des noisettes. 2ème à l’étrange mélange avec du café, miel, et une pointe de terreau … Arrière-bouche un peu aride, et sèche. 3ème qui vient doucement à un ensemble plus équilibré. Arrière-bouche agréable. La longueur retrouve un peu de porto (ce qui est très bien pour un porter …), des fruits mûrs, et toujours un superbe nez. Jambes très lisses. Levure douce, très en arrière des autres composants. Alcool correct, surtout avec 32° encore à 21h30’... Mais il soutient le tout sans rechigner. Finale bien dans la ligne. CONCLUSION : un porter bien agréable pour un pays qui est à cent lieues de nos préoccupations cervisiophiles … Bravo septem, qui est le chiffre symbole de la création, dixit (pardon, c’est du latin …) le brasseur. Si tous les politiciens grecs étaient comme ce brasseur, il y aurait moins de problèmes en Grèce (fin de la parenthèse …).

ShivanDragon (2135) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - JUN 3, 2015
zeer donker bruin met rode gloed en kleine bruine kraag. aroma van chocolade, vanille, zoet en koffie. Smaken zijn zwak zoet, zwak bitter, matig sterk, hoog koolzuurgehalte bij elke slok, iets aardse tonen, caramel, medium body, dun van textuur, tijdens het drinken krijg ik wat de ervaring van een caramel/vanille vla beleving.

mike_77 (3890) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - MAY 2, 2015
Black with thin head and fine carbonation. Nice and strong aroma of heavily roasted malts. Flavour also has strong, bitter roasted malts. Body is slightly thin but it’s only 5.5% and is very full flavoured.

Benzai (9934) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - APR 22, 2015
Bottle @ Van Moll Brewpub shared by Erwin Van Moll. Nice dark red-brown color with a dark red hue coming through, medium sized beige head that diminishes fairly quickly. Aroma is malts, roast, toasted malts, chocolate, a bit earthy. Tastes about the same: malts, roasted malts, toasted malts, bitter, earthy, some caramel and brown malts, earthy bitter. Medium body, medium a bit fizzy yet suitable carbonation. Good porter. Style wise this would score 4+ imo, but since that’s not the way we rate on RB my score is a little lower.

olio (7432) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 13, 2015
33 cl bottle as "Septem Saturday’s Seasonal Porter" @ Timo A. BBE 15.04.2015.
Pours dark ruby red color with a small head. Very malty and bready on the nose, some cocoa, dry wooden notes and manure. Dry cocoa flavor, faint coffee, dark berry notes and some nettle-like herbs. Better than I expected.
