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.

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.

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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

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.

Smell of dark fruit, candy, malt. Subdued taste, a fair amount of carbonation, combined with sweetness that gives this a vague cola quality.

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.
