stobbe74 (3789) - DENMARK - DEC 12, 2010
Bottle. Pours a clear and dark reddish/brown beer with an offwhite head. The aroma is malt, sweetness, fruit, notes of dried fruit and star anis. The flavor follows the nose. The palate is sweetness. Overall a good beer.

probstblueribbon (3722) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 23, 2008
33 cl bottle from Bieropholie, served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass. JN18/08.[br/][br/] App.: Very deep black with hints of brown, moderate tan head. Aroma: A bit of molasses and brown sugar, lots of ginger, black licorice, some clove and other warm spices, a bit of black coffee, slightly minty, tangy truly an odd and eclectic aroma Palate: Medium+ body, soft effervescence, slightly slick and astringent. Flav.: Tangy acidity, plenty of ginger, vinous, some molasses and licorice, a touch of leafy hops quite tart and slightly bitter, with a touch of coffee that lingers with the tartness.[br/][br/] A bizarre brew with very unexpected flavours and aromas. Unique, but not for me.

ShivanDragon (3509) - 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 !

bartlebier (3496) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - SEP 30, 2015
UPDATED: OCT 10, 2015 33cl bb12/2015, TDrinks Tilburg clearance. Nice opaque noir foincé pour with beige, organic crema. Smells like a pumpernickel/Schwarzbrot inflected Schwarzbier more than a porter: earthy nuts, char, black pepper, burnt breadcrust, some vanilla, bayleaf and berries. About the same in taste on just the right creamy-sessionable body, satisfying coffee-sour, woody roast with a hint of chocolate, hedgerow berry hops. Could as well be a an Alsatian "Schworz" (cf. Matten), as a more exotic "French-Flemish porter/des Flandres".

beerbuzzmontreal (3487) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 30, 2008
Pours a pitch black color with a thin light brown head. The aroma has roasted malt, some light tartness and sweetness. The flavor is acid with roasted malt and sweetness. The body is light with a creamy texture and gentle carbonation. I’m not too sure what to think of this beer, there are some interesting elements, but the acidity doesn’t really fit with the rest.

rederic (3256) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 3, 2008
330ml bottle, dark brown color, with a thick beige head, sweet toasted, roasted malt nose, with a hint of spicy licorice, gingerbread, with some winey, oaky accents, and a sourness note in the aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a yeasty, winey, oaky character, with some fieldberry sourness, hints of black chocolate and licorice spiciness with a faint roastiness, leading towards a fruity, winey, coffeeish finish.

JanLaursen (3227) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 26, 2011
Black with red-brown edge. Off-white large, stable foamy head. Aroma: Malt, a little sweetness, with hints of raisins and spices (cinnamon, licorice, cardamom). Taste is relative thin. Watery texture with fizzy carbonation. There is something almost medicinal in the flavor. Dry finish. Interestering, but lacks concentration..
