JulienHuxley (2514) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - FEB 10, 2014
Bottle from the bierkoning. Black pour with bubbly brown head that recedes almost instantly. Looks all the world like Coke, even sizzles like coke. Aroma is roasty, light grassy hoppy notes, some licorice. Taste is disgusting, light root beer flavor, watery as hell, sweet like pop. Super thin palate, watery with prickly soda carbonation. Yuck, I hope this is an infection of some kind.

33cl Bottle from De Bierkoning. Black colour, beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, earth, dust, cocoa, burnt sugar, some chocolate. Flavour of roasted malts, earth, yeast, some chocolate, cocoa bitter finish. Light-bodied, faint taste.

ShivanDragon (1253) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - JAN 18, 2014
bruin/zwarte stout met matige bruine kraag aroma’s van geroosterde en gebrande mouten, aardse tonen, caramel, licht zuurtje, hout, zoet. de smaken zijn redelijk zoet, licht bitter, matig gemout, mooie chocolade en ’aardse’ tonen, het lichte zuurtje in de aroma is niet in de smaak terug te vinden. redelijk body, glad in de mond, laag van co2, afdronk is chocolade en zoetig. over het algemeen een goede smaakvolle porter, met lekkere chocolade, iets licht/dun in de mond maar kwalitatief een goed bier. vind hem erg lekker !

tlind2 (1068) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 16, 2013
Bottle, BB 2/2011. Very deep, reddish-brown color, wispy tan head. Vaguely sour aroma with hints of coffee. Slightly sour flavor with roasted malts, tart finish. Medium body, medium-high carbonation. Either this has not aged well or it wasn't particularly good to begin with.

rodenbach99 (2968) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 2, 2013
En fût au DDC. Une bière brune avec une mousse blanche collante. Un drôle de nez avec des notes de fruits confits et de chocolat avec des traces de levure belge. La bouche offre des saveurs discordantes de chocolat, de fruits noires, de bois et de levure. Une drôle de bière qui est loin d’être ma préférée. Je ne suis pas un fan des porter et stout belges.

tom10101 (2216) - Quebec, CANADA - AUG 28, 2013
Bottle (330 ml). Best before 06/2013. Extra from Yannick, thanks! Dark brown with a small beige head and little lacing. Aroma of dark fruits and light roasted malt along with light chocolate nose... mild, but not offensive. Taste is slightly to moderately sweet and about the same as aroma with an oak touch. Light body, a tad watery. Low to moderate carbonation. Not very complex, but not bad. Interesting fruitiness. Reminds me of a "poor man" Zwet.Be.

SlovakSniper (2807) - Candiac/Frelighsburg, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 26, 2013
Un petit calice sur la rue Laurier. Une robe presque noire et un col monté pour permettre l’installation d’une dentelle. Un nez de choses noires et de fruits foncés avec des pointes de jus d’olives grecques. Le goût est particulièrement amélioré avec un fruité plus agréable et des malts nettement plus chocolatés. En bouche, le liquide montre un corps de faible densité avec une texture crémeuse et un pétillement qui tire vers le bas. En finale, ce porter me laisse une impression fruitée et une sensation presque épicée qui me fait penser à la racine de réglisse ou même à l’anis étoilé.

MrHangover (2139) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - AUG 10, 2013
Bottle. Pours a thin dark brown beer with a big beige head on top. Aroma is coffee and roasted malts. Flavour has a lot of coffee influences, as well as some sweet notes. Very carbonated mouthfeel, short finish and quite watery texture.

DruncanVeasey (6950) - NUNEATON, Top 24, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JUN 20, 2013
330ml from Beer Gonzo. Ruby-edged mahogany with a firm cream head. Nose of rust, coal smoke, grilled vegetables and redcurrant. The rust wins. Good, finely burnt taste with souring berry and bramble undercurrents reminiscent of an English stout. Hints of well-roasted nut and black cherry over that prevailing tang of dark berries and blackcurrant. Creamy mouthfeel. Pretty good.
