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.

Sombeast (151) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 20, 2007
Ceramic swingtop 75cl bottle labeled Hoogstraten Poorter. Served in a snifter. Pours a crystal clear, dark red with a solid 1-finger, rapidly disappearing head. Aroma of lightly toasted malts and some caramel. Mouth-feel is medium, moderately creamy with some carbonation sting. Flavor is distinctly dry with a focus on roast malts. Finish is dry, slightly bitter, almost but not quite astringent.

mikenodak (150) - Fargo, North Dakota, USA - MAR 1, 2002
Seemed thin at first, but the flavor got fuller as it warmed up - more of a brown than a porter. Overpriced (nice bottle), but otherwise likeable.

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.

the one thing that stood out with this beer was that it was flat. i mean FLAT, like water. maybe it was old or something, but i found it very interesting. otherwise, i think it would have been awesone with some fizz. maybe next time...

Bottlle. This beer smells like RC Cola. I actually stopped rating it half way through. I didnít want to drink it, let alone concentrate on itís lack of flavor.

POOR is word all around for this beer. Flat and Plain from poor to sip to poor down the sink. AHHH never again

I agree with psychprof on this one itís alot like one of my homebrews that was intended to be a dubbel but I used a different yeast. This on is a very nice brew but not my idea of a porter maybe the monks had a few toomany themselves when they made labeled this one, but a cool bottle and I donít know the alcohol level but it is up there as most belgiums are.

nice tight bubbles in the head, great smell, somewhat typical belgian flavor but good none the less. lots of roast. i dont really see it as a porter.

Was a little shocked at the intense hopps aroma and flavor, but I enjoyed it a lot. found two bottles at a liquor store in Indy, havenít seen it since. After reading what everyone else had to say about this brew, I donít think we were drinking the same beer! I enjoyed it, a little pricey though.
