Przywitał nas lekki gushing. Piana bardzo obfita, szybko się dziurawi, troszkę krazkuje na szklei pozostawia cieńką warstewkę na powierzchni. Barwa no prawie jak cocacola, olapizująca, z rubinowo brązowawymi prześwitami, ale bez bąbelków. Aromat wodnisty, palony, ciemne owoce, ogólnie słodycz. Bez rewelki. W smaku jest mocno palone, przez chwil bo potem czuć wodnistość, owocowe, trochę jakby karmelu i brązowego cukru. Wysycenie w stronę wysokiego, wodniste, goryczka jest ale jakaś taka z niesamowicie słodkawym posmakiem.

This beer introduces itself with an aroma infused with the scents of malt, dates, honey, caramel, hops, and toffee. It is a brown solution with an off-white head and good lacing. This sweet beer offers a flavor that has hints of dates, nuts, and biscuits. It fades leaving a mild nutty taste lingering.

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.

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!!

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.
