kwoeltje (2232) - Manchester, Missouri, USA - FEB 10, 2004
Hazy light-medium brown with hints of red. Quickly fading head. As noted by others, this isn't really a porter. It is a Belgian brown ale. Slightly sweet malt flavors. Like many Belgian ales, a noticable yeast flavor. Overall OK.

DCopperfields (145) - Alabama, USA - JAN 14, 2004
Old style Belgium Brown. Not much head, what little ther is is brownish. Beautiful light brown, re-stoppable flip top porcelain bottle. Nose is mild and sweet, somewhat candylike. Taste is not too complex, with some malt sweetness dominating, and a sweet, candy like aftertaste. Good alcohol warmth finishes this brew.

Kinz (3347) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - DEC 14, 2003
This isn't even remotely a porter, so just judge on its own merits. Medium brown with some reddish highlights, thin head. Aroma focuses on toffee, sweet malts. A faint flavor of Belgian yeast, but flavors really center around caramel and toffee notes, maybe a faint, faint hint of molasses. A surprising alcohol warmth at the end. Enjoyable, but nothing special.

jercraigs (8006) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 14, 2003
Excellent fluffy head. Dark ruby colour. Flavour is malty with a bit of roasty bitterness, and a splash of caramel mixed in. Thanks for sharing Doug!

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 13, 2003
Caramel and toffee aromas, pours a clear ruby, with a medium sized toffee head, and some pretty lace. Tastes of caramel, toffee and roasted chicory. Quite well balanced, medium bodied, nicely bitter. Well done!

Shag (2623) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - DEC 13, 2003
Aroma is of raisins, caramel, and chocolate. A solid brown color and probably the lightest colored porter Ive encountered. Flavor is of slight alcohol, nuts, chocolate, caramel, raisins, and toffee. Wow! It has a very "Belgian" flavor if anyone knows what I mean. So why is this classified as a porter? I would say it's more of an Abbey Dubbel. But it's one fine beer regardless of its style.

CapFlu (4589) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 9, 2003
(75o ml bottle) Pours a thin, creamy beige head and a mahogany body. Nose of slight bananas, spice and toffee. Floral berry flavour with small malt and cask whiskey. Very Good!

Oakes (12777) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 9, 2003
Chestnut colour with a light tan head. Aroma shows toffee, caramel, nuts. Lean toffeeish malt notes in the body. Light walnut, almond hints as well. Sweetish and pleasant, but does not capture my imagination.

omhper (19805) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - NOV 23, 2003
Bottled. Dark ambe with creamy head. Roasty coffee aroma. Sweet, malty and fruity, notes of plums. Woody, salty and quite pleasant. I'm always suspicious on beers in too fancy or gimmicky bottles, but this does impress.

jazz88 (2562) - San Francisco, California, USA - SEP 19, 2003
Bottle. A ruby brown color with basically no head. Raisins and plums in the aroma. It doesn't resemble a porter I'm used to, although I do like the aroma. The body is very light, but the flavors reveal themselves early and finish well.
