Strykzone (5072) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUN 8, 2013
Sampled at esbls. Medium brown with a ligjt tan head. This has the distinct flavor of a porter from that region. Grape jelly flavor with roasted notes. Not a gret porter.

Pours a clear dark ruby amber with a big frothy 4" head that slowly goes away, thick curving sheets of lace. Taste is lightly spiced sweet caramel malt with a twist of dark fruit and earthy bread. Slightly chalky on the roof of the mouth, but still drinks easily. The finish includes a carbonation edge that brings things back into balance. Slightly off the beaten path,...and quite good. Recommended.

llcooldave (1118) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - APR 5, 2013
Looks like a brown ale in the glass as opposed to a porter. Funky fruit and some leather aromas. Spicy yeast and toasted dark bread notes followed by a dryness on the palate. Overall, nice... I dig the large ceramic bottle too! Thanks to jmoore102 for bringing it to the tasting.

VALIS (228) - Nashua, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 31, 2013
Smell of dark fruit, candy, malt. Subdued taste, a fair amount of carbonation, combined with sweetness that gives this a vague cola quality.

Beerenberger (1538) - Fischer, Texas, USA - JUN 22, 2012
This Belgium porter poured a deep reddish brown with a short lived light tan head. No lacing seen. The aroma was somewhat of fruity with a hint of sweetness. The mouth feel was medium and smooth. Balance between malts and hops was in favor of the malt - no hippiness detected. The initial taste was much the same as the nose followed by a slight alcohol aftertaste and a pleasant burn. All-in-all, this was good beer that I would buy again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Damico (2684) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 28, 2012
Pours dark amber almost unclear with a huge frothy tan head. The aroma brings sweet matls and a bit of sweet fruit. The flavor brings spicy Belgian yeast, sweet ester banana notes, and some honey flavors that settle on the tongue. The body is medium, right on for the style.

ALLOVATE (2473) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JAN 5, 2012
Into its own snifter at just on cool. Big Belgian head is mostly lasting atop a bright ruby cola body. A rocky, loose, frothy off-white mess that laces well. There is a hint of Belgian yeast and sherry on the nose amongst layers of chocolate and dark, woody malts, raisins and dried dates, cocoa and lightly roasted coffee beans, yum. Creamy and full well rounded mouthfeel. Flavours of sweet sherry, madeira, oak, smoky charred wood, cola and a late hint of nutmeg spice. Nice, silky malty length only heightened by some sneaky alcohol warmth. A favourite of mine so I have a soft spot for this one. Lovely drinking, and better as it warms. Delicious.
