One of the best porters ever! The beer is overflowing with flavor, just the right amount of bitterness, and a real smooth bitter finish. The taste is heavy. Lively to average carbonation A bit woody in a good way, and maybe some hints of clove.

Bottle. Bottles. Long time ago, rating from memory because I bloody drank this beer but for some reason never rated it. I recall it being a bit too tarty for my taste, passion fruit was apparent. Medium-bodied probably. חבל על דאבדין

Bottle, medium stable bubbly head, hazy very pale orange color, aroma of herbs bread and some vanila, quite lager like, grainy malty flavor with some fruitiness and medium to light bitterness, mellow but quite noticeable sweetness. Highly drinkable and good with food, but nothing to write home about.

Many thanks to Barak for this bottle. Smooth and fresh. Malty body with hints of sweetness. Fresh, malty, sweetish with a malty sweetness. No real bitterness, hints of floral hops. Smooth but for me a bit too sweetish and not deep enough.

Bottle, 330ml. Pours amber-orange with a green tint. Slightly hazy, with floating yeast but no residue on bottom. Dense, quite tall, off-white head. Aroma of strong yeast and malt, some fruit and herbal hops. Medium body with oily mouth feel and very light carbonation, unpleasantly so. Tastes sweet with some later light hop bitterness and lightly bitter hop finish with sticky candy sugar finish, as a Belgian beer. Flavors of sweet ripe fruit, fruity hops, slightly bitter herbal hops, candy sugar, caramel malt, light tropical fruit, yeast, some esters. Very light, slightly off balance but nicely flavored and just bitter and hoppy enough to keep up with the sweetness.

Bottle at ChrisO. It pours deep brown with a massive light tan head. The nose is bitter-sweet, malt-driven, cocoa, caramel, oak and cardboard. The taste is bitter, earthy, toasty, spice, malt-driven, wood, caramel, spice and dirt with a very dry finish. Medium body and high carbonation. Very underwhelming and rather drying.

Bottle share at ChrisO’s. Cola brown, small bubbly white head. Aroma is cola cubes, caramel, floral. Body is medium, foamy, spritzy carbonation. Taste is metallic malts, cola, light floral, resin, ashy finish. A bit strange - particularly in the body. Has some signs of infection, but it’s passable.

Copenhagen 4/4 2015. 33 cl bottle brought home from Tel Aviv. Nice label with vultures staking out beer drinking fellow enjoying the sun set. Pours hazy amber with white head. Settles into thin layer fairly fast. Quite sweet aroma. Candylike with toffee. Soft carbonation. Taste is sugary with a sharp sour edge. A little citrus goes with the sweetness in the aftertaste. Not terrible but I liked their Oasis beer better.

Bottle. Pours clear amber with a decent creamy head. Aroma of yeast, soap, candies, overripe fruits, caramel, nuts and grassy hops. Sweet fruity and malty flavors, not much bitterness to balance it, notes of caramel, nuts and tropical fruits, a bit alcoholic. Medium-bodied, lively carbonation, sticky mouthfeel. Ok but too sweet and not very interesting.

330 ml. bottle obtained in the big Israeli trade. Shared @ the “pre-Club 54 tasting”. Very murky orange, super-murky, lots of stuff floating. Little white bubbles. Looks like very murky juice. Nose is very lactic, sour, mineral,… surely this isn’t intentional. Taste is very mineral, weird lactic, exotic fruit juice, thick lactic, very mineral, almost flat,…. Didn’t seem even remotely intentional. Drinkable – bland sour? Weird.

Copenhagen 20/3 2015. 33 cl bottle bought in Tel Aviv. Drawn label with sand dunes and other desert effects. Pours heavily hazy yellow with large white head. Diminishes rather quickly. Aroma is mostly citrus and a little sweetness. Rather fresh. Fizzy carbonation. Taste is lemonadelike with a little sweetness and a lot of citrus. A pretty simple but refreshing beer.

Draught at Beer Bazaar. Dark brown with a beige head. Aroma of malt, toast, a chocolate note, light hoppy notes, yeast and some olives. Sweetish and mildly sourish flavor with malt, toast, some roast, yeast, a chocolate note, a hoppy hint and a mildly bitterish finish. Light to medium-bodied. Too yeasty and seems like an infection is starting but still pretty drinkable.

Przygód z izraelskim piwem ciąg dalszy. Dębowy porter brzmiał zachęcająco. Zachęcająco również wyglądał - czarne, ze średnią, nieco dziurawą, ale przyjemną dla oka pianą. Nawet pachniał zachęcająco... Paloność, kawa, suszone śliwki. Czar jednak prysł po spróbowaniu - metaliczne, wodniste, kwaskowate. A miało być tak pięknie...

O piwach z Izraela wiadomo raczej niewiele. Po kolejnej próbie wyrobu z tego kraju stwierdzam, że nie mam ochoty zgłębiać tej wiedzy. Nie są to piwa do wylania, ale przyjemności dostarczają bardzo niewiele. Nieco mętne, w kolorze bursztynu, z pianą pod postacią wąskiego pierścienia nie zachęcało do picia... W aromacie lekko karmelowe, nieco metaliczne. W smaku również metal wyczuwalny, słodkawe, goryczka bardzo niska. Słabiutko...
