Bought in the bottle from the excellent "Beers of Europe" shop near Kings Lynn. The bottle I bought was unfer the name of "Hoogstraten" Poorter. Beautiful clay bottle with flip top thingy. Mid / Dark brown colour. Not too fizzy. Very full bodied & tastey beer.

jcalbi (380) - Medford, New Jersey, USA - JUL 8, 2002
Chocolate brown color with a rather large coffee colored head. Aromas of chocolate and bread. Flavors of mocha and dried fruit with some bitter off-flavors and a slight gritty chalkiness as well. Came as part of a boxed set with Bokrijks Kruikenbier. Not as spectacular as the Kruikenbier but certainly worth the effort. The back label from All Saints Brands states that this is a ’Freeman Porter from Hoogstraten. A dark top-fermented Porter brewed according to the Purity Law of 1516.’ MJ says that the term Poorter has nothing to with the English style Porter, but rather this is a Belgian Stout. I say neither.

I thought the color was a little light and the texture was thin for a porter, but it was very good and enjoyable. And hey the bottle kicks ass!!

wingman333 (333) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - JUN 26, 2007
Dark red color with creamy bubbly head. I was expecting something porter-like based upon the name but what I got instead was one of the most refined and flavorful dubbel-style brews I’ve had. There were flavors of grape, dark fruits, and a delicate sweetness that was not overpowering. There was heavy carbonation, something I prefer. Plus the ceramic bottle was pretty cool, too.

Hoogstraten Poorter Pours dark Mahogany with a medium tan head. Good retention, but does not resemble its namesake. Aroma of raisins, a little metal, yeasty funk, and some some vanilla. Nice. Flavor is somewhat metallic. Very smooth flavor with a bubbly mouth. Notes of yeast, cried fruits and earthy malts.

redgold07 (308) - Irving, Texas, USA - FEB 19, 2008
Pours a pale, hazy golden-wheat color with a medium pure white head. There was a kind of sizzle sound when it poured... like from a soda. Flavor is light and of wheat, lemon, a little bitter, and some alcohol. 1 pt. 9.4 oz bottle.

the bottle is absolutely awesome. . a heavy solid ceramic cask with a stopper... it carries with it highexpectations that as much attention and creativity has been given to what is inside. Alas, such is not the case.

VALIS (229) - 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.

750cc bottle. Lovely dark brown and reddish colour. On the sweet side. Hints of molasses and maple syrup. A bit nutty also. Some bitterness in the end. Very pleasant.
