Een bijna zwart bier met een stevige, mokka schuimkraag. Aroma van geroosterde mouten, as, koffie. Doet wat hartig, bijna zoutig aan. Smaak is droog, bitter. Zacht in de mond, laag tot medium levendig koolzuur, medium body.

BeerRenter76 (303) - Texas, USA - JUL 13, 2015
A black body full of brownish yeast flakes,with a frothy tan head that stays around and leaves a good amount of lacing. The aroma is very nice, it smells like smoked meat, chocolate, and some burnt malt. Taste is similar to the aroma, but it’s not quite as smoky. It tastes like smoked malts/meat, bittersweet and milk chocolate, charred malt, and some coffee. There’s also a smoky and burnt/ashy bitter finish. Mouthfeel is on the thin side of medium, it’s smooth and slick with a fair amount of carbonation.

Flanfl (279) - Bordeaux, FRANCE - JUL 8, 2015
Ink black body. Medium beige head. Strong aroma of toasted malt, then smoke, coffee and chocolate notes. Flavour starts with caramel. The the toasted malt is taking most of the place bringing smoke with it. Light chocolate and coffee notes. Long finish, bitter it´a bitter then smoky. A good smoke aftertaste. Oily body, low carbo, nice mouthfeel. A good porter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

11.2 Bottle. Poured dark brown, minimal tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, fruit, smoked and some coffee. Taste is similar, some smoke, bacon like notes, coffee and certainly hoppy bitterness. Super interesting beer, quite enjoyable.

Aangeraden door Bert’s Bierhuis. Ik zou zelf niet zo snel een Porter van Belgische makelij kopen, maar fijn dat ik dat toch heb gedaan. Een heel geurige porter, gebrande mout, rook, chocola, koffie. Ook in de smaak komt dat terug, deze is vol en rond van smaak, fris door de koolzuur. Lekker complex en diep, heerlijk.
