3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Pours black with a short-lived tan head. Aromas of boot polish, liquorice, tar, shellacs at 78rpm. Noisy carbonation. Taste is light sweet, more tar and memories. Watching Grandstand on a Saturday afternoon with a minute-steak sandwich. WWF in the last 1980s. Sweet, but thin finish.

33 cl bottle. Pours a dark brown with full tank head. Aroma of mulled berries and and fermenting fruit with a hint of soya sauce. Taste of sweet fruit. Palate is smooth with an acidic aftertaste. Overall a non typical porter, but decent.

UPDATED: AUG 12, 2014 Bottle at Brasserie Thiriez.
In my opinion this sits closer to Belgian Stout than a sort of Porter: Phenolic, roast-heavy, licorice / spice-accented. Slightly lactic in the way of milk stout. Medium body, off-dry, slightly herbal (roasted fennel) amid the core of burnt and astringent blackened grains.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma has plenty of roasted malts and also something herbal. Nettles, liquorice perhaps. Smooth and rich mouthfeel. Flavour has a solid bittersweet maltiness and some treacle.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Les Trois 8. Coffee-colored with foamy tan head. Aroma is espresso, grassy/spicy hops, bitter chocolate, esters, stone fruit. Taste is round and full with notes of dark chocolate, coffee, prunes, dried cherry, hops, and lingering bitterness. Sort of a farmhouse porter. Nice.
