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.

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

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.

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.

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.
