Well known card play throughout the globe, famous black Swedish condom on the other hand, and now a Porter brewed for Jack Pano at Belgobaren. ""MOTVERKAR TRISTESS"" is Swedish for ""Prevent boredom"". After a lot of development trials, some even with the whole Monks crew next to the kettles, we finally launched this Porter aged on oak. Jack will happily propose this ale to friends, relatives, family & clients...

bottle... one of the few times Iíve wondered what the heck was De Struise thinking, this is really bad, train wreck territory... super thin beer to barrel age, it is infected... the aroma is burnt black licorice, sour, olive juice... taste is equally unappealing... skip this

Cloudy dark brown beer. Soft palate. Rich tangy porter, sourish malt. The oaking seems sublte - may have slightly rounded this beer off otherwise does not make itís prescense known. Low carbonation. Smooth.

[Trade by fonefan] Pours black with a small off-white head. Aroma has notes of roasted malt and dried fruits. Taste is light sweet and light bitter with a kind of dry fruity finish. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is flat.

Bottle. Thanks to Enjoyit. Pours a dark, murky brown with a small beige/light brown head. Aroma is tart and overly sweet; sweet liquorice and vanilla. Okay as such, but feels cloying and a bit unbalanced. Flavour is the same. Dusty, roasted finish with smoked/ashtray notes. Acidic and oily palate. Overall the tartness loosens up the heavy sweetness, but it still feels unbalanced. 17.02.11.

imdownthepub (13233) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 18, 2011
Bottled, 330ml, one of my anniversary beers from Sandra sourced by Fin, thank you. Dark brown to black with tan brown head. Rich fruity, tartish aroma on opening leading to a heavy, sweetish beer. There is a molasses taste, thick, burnt, with liquorice and a sour cherry character. The finish is long and rich. A very interesting beer, just the thing for curling up in front of the fire.
