Moravius (747) - Berlin, GERMANY - FEB 11, 2015
Flasche (35 cl) von Töpper, Berlin-Moabit. - Tiefes Rotbraun, schwach trüb. - In der Nase kräftige Röstmalzaromen: Mokka, Bitterschokolade, Lakritz, dazu tiefgründige obergärige Fruchtigkeit und ein Hauch von Erde. - Antrunk unerwartet dünn mit kräftigem Röstmalz, etwas Rohrzucker und schwach säuerlichen Noten. Mild rezent, für ein Porter fast etwas wäßrig. Eher schwach gehopfter, leicht fruchtig-süßlicher Abgang ohne den kräftig erdigen Hopfen, den man von einem Porter erwartet. Im Nachtrunk mehr Mokka als Hopfen und ein Hauch von Vanille. - Angenehmes, sehr harmonisches aber vergleichsweise dünnes Porter.

lamas (1426) - Washington DC, USA - FEB 7, 2015
Bottle. Packaged on: 10/29/14. A hazy ruby/mahogany pour with a smallish khaki head. Roasted caramel maltiness, toasted bread, cocoa, coffee, dark chocolate, and some sour citrus in the aroma. Goes down thin to medium-bodied. Caramel and a toasted breadiness upfront taste-wise. Cocoa follows. Bitter dark chocolate and coffee at the tail-end. Solid for the style. I remember pounding these back in the day when the label was blue.

350ml bottle served at room temperature. Almost black with a red hue when held near light. Big, bubbly beige head. Smells mostly of sweet malt. Tastes of liquorice and coffee. Slight smoke then bitter finish. Rather good.

Vells (899) - Riga, LATVIA - FEB 1, 2015
Standard decent porter. Nothing overdone or undone here. Light roasted maltiness, green coffee beans. Moderate to light sweetness, light bitterness. Drinkable but too thin body for my liking

so less body as for porter, to much water. I don’t feel alcohol at all. Tasted from bottle in Vilnius, Lithuania.
