neuromatt (1097) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 13, 2013
33 cL bottle from Cervezorama 2.0 in Madrid, served in a stem glass. Pours hazy reddish brown with a small tan head that remains and leaves a small amount of lace. The nose has big brown sugar notes along with port, dark fruit, oak, sour fruit, flowers and a touch of spice. The flavour is quite sweet with port, brown sugar, caramel, flowers and a touch of oak. Spicy notes provide balance, but it is really all about the malts and port. The finish is long, malty, spicy and porty. On the palate, it is medium-full in body with a smooth, milky texture and average carbonation. Overall, a delicious port variant of an already nice brew. Smooth and complex, with an extra touch of port. The most complex of the three; very well done. 2013-05-03

EddyBeer1 (832) - Brussels, BELGIUM - DEC 12, 2013
Rouge cuivrée trouble avec un léger dépôt en suspension, effervescence moyenne, col beige épais sans être abondant. Après s’être imposé en prenant leur temps, les malts caramel laissent la place à une amertume légèrement réglissée qui n’essaient pour autant pas de prendre tout l’espace afin que le fruité d’abricot puisse s’installer à son aise, tout en donnant un peu d’espace à quelques notes de porto. Une merveille de plus de chez Sruise!

medusetl (11) - Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - DEC 9, 2013
Amber pour, thick head. Smells malty, slight caramel, hints of fruit. First taste is dramatic: expansive fruitiness, sweet finish, echoes of port at the end too. Tsjeeses indeed. Very nice beer.
