Porter, not really. Not the porter that I know .Maybe it is Belgian Porter (!) .Rich , sweet , juicy ale, plenty of sugars , fruit and yeast .Medium bodied ale , some bitterness , touch of alcohol . Friendly finish, alcohol keeps low key to the end .Thanks Doug!

(Bottle) Pours an amber-brown color with a thick, frothy (like a root beer float), long-lasting, beige head. Sweet malt and caramel aroma. Flavors of toffee and cola. Bitter palate.

Red-ish brown colour. Rich head. Sweet-ish liquorice aroma. Fruity, slightly roasty flavour. Interesting Belgian ale/Porter-hybrid.

Ruby amber with a beige head. Yeasty. Coffee nose. Sweet and fruity. Medium body, slightly astringent, creamy. Flavor was slighty sweet, nutty. Not at all impressive. Doesn’t rank with other porters I’ve had. Disappointing. Nice bottle, though.

Ya know for a porter this isnt that bad. I dont like porters and to me this wasnt everything that a porter is. First off, cool bottle, just for that it gets some points with me on this one. The colour is clear brown not too dark with a thin tan head that is long lasting. The nose is some malts and soy to it, just a hint of toffie to it. The taste is clean, thin and bland with malts and some soy. Interesting but not very good.

Bottle, DBF 2004. Deep chestnut, moderate white head and gentle condition. Low malt, roast barley and yeast aromas, sweet caramel and more roastiness in the mouth which also lingers into the finish.

Pours a light brown with a light caramel aroma. Seemed like a cross between as light brown ale and a bock. Not really a porter by any measure.. nonetheless... Flavors of caramel with minimal bitterness... Unique..

UPDATED: JUL 15, 2004 Bottle/jug into tulip glass. I might have found a porter I don’t like, mostly because it doesn’t taste like any porter I’ve ever had. At first, I thought that a "poorter" might be an entirely different beer, but Ratebeer tells me otherwise, so I have to believe it. The smell was outstanding: caramel malt and banana. It looked good too, ruby with some brown accents, a large foamy head that left beautiful large-bubble lacing on the glass. Downhill from there. The taste was dominated by a mint-like spiciness that overpowered the caramel malt and a tomato taste also present. When I say overpower, that’s not saying much though, because the flavor was pretty weak. Combined with the wateriness of it, I wasn’t sure if I was drinking beer at all. Carbonation was barely noticable, which was good, because any more of it would have masked the taste entirely. Disappointment in a fancy package.

Deep ruby in color with a large off-white head. Fruity aroma,yeast,malt and bread. Flavors of fruit and sweet toasted malt. A nice porter, but the packaging and price had my expectations higher.

Clear light brown/dark orange with a fluffy off-white head. Sweet malts in the nose with a hint of chocolate. Watery body. Lightly sweet fizzy ending. A light simple porter in a fancy bottle.
