"probably a bad bottle, but as it was my first time trying it, iíll have to rate it from the one time. upon opening, the beer exploded out of the heavy ceramic bottle, and continued to overflow for several minutes. i was able to pour it with two fingers of head. i wasnít expecting a traditional porter (which it is not), but i donít know if the funkiness was on purpose or if the beer was totally spoiled, as i had no frame of reference. i was looking forward to trying a belgian porter, but as we had it, it poured thin, smelled funky, if not spoiled, had a thin mouthfeel and a rather unique, but ultimately boring flavor...like a flanders/porter hybrid. maybe iíll try it again one day to see if what we had was a true representation of this beer, but at the price, it may be a while."

stevoj (2235) - Boise, Idaho, USA - SEP 10, 2014
Pours out dark with an oily skin of a head. Dried fruit aroma , hint of molasses. Taste is on the sweet side, fruit, sugar. Taste dissipated quickly, overall mouthful is slightly watery.

Bygers (788) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 31, 2014
Bottle 0,5l. A ceramic swing top bottle. Pours a deep amber brown colour with tan head and leaves a great lace. Aromas of toasty malt and chocolate. Tastes sweet and chocolatey up front, followed by some bitterness on the end. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Alengrin (2076) - BELGIUM - AUG 21, 2014
UPDATED: OCT 8, 2014 One of Sterkensís ípitcher beersí, tasted as Hoogstraten Poorter; dense, stable head and warm bronze colour; fruity and malty aroma, bit straightforward but enjoyable, with some roasted bitterness in the finish. A bit like a downtuned Scotch, still one of the better Sterkens beers I had.

Bottle in Santa Barbara

My father picked this one out; I donít think Iíve ever seen it in Washington state. Dark pour, very little head. Pretty nice nose, chocolate and just a touch of porter vinous sourness; a belgian yeast thing and more smoke than I would have expected. Flavor is just a little bit sweet, bakerís chocolate and again those vinous notes. A bit thin would be my main complaint. My wife was very impressed and stole my glass. I go a bit against the grain here and actually think this was nice.

turbothy (1102) - Bonn, GERMANY - JUL 25, 2014
Pours dark brown with a fairly large head that however dissipates quickly, leaving an uneven thin foam on top of the beer. Malt, roasted coffee aroma. Pleasantly roasted flavour, though the flavour seems a bit alcoholic for "only" 6Ĺ%. Decent enough, but not earth-shattering.

Swing top bomber bottle. Aroma is sweetly skunk with some darkness. Appearance is dark brown with a tan head. Taste is European sweet with some dark skunkiness. Palate is pretty neutral. Overall, a decent beer. Very European. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark amber colour, medium carbonation. Aroma of sweet caramel and dark fruit. Easy drinkable. Bit thin body.

jflopsu (580) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 17, 2014
Pours a dark black with fizzy light brown head. Aroma is a mix of toffee, prunes, and other dark fruits. Taste is watered down (but flavorful) with prunes, raisins, other dark fruits, and sweet malt.

Buongiorgio00 (779) - - JAN 12, 2014
Chiamiamola porter belga o dubbel molto originale, ma niente di eccezionale comunque. Gusto che riechegga i malti tostati, con note di frutta scura e una dolcezza pervasiva da canditi. Gradevole.
