Fules (1751) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - MAY 26, 2019
UPDATED: MAY 26, 2019 Szinte nincs habja, színe fekete. Csokis, kakaós, kávés, aszalt gyümölcsös illat. Csokis, kakaóporos, kávés ízek, aszalt szilvás, aszalt cseresznyés aromákkal. Könnyű, közepesen keserű, enyhén szénsavas. Kellemes, jól eltalált porter.

ibanlabestia (160) - - MAR 1, 2019
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2019 Muy rica Porter de color negro oscuro con destellos marrrones, buena espuma canela con retención decente. Gas moderado, cuerpo medio y textura cremosa. Aromas a café, cacao, regaliz, ciruela pasa y maltas tostadas. Gusto similar, con amargor moderado y final seco y algo avainillado. Muy disfrutable. Da gusto encontrar una Porter decente.

nathanvc (2131) - Gent, BELGIUM - DEC 28, 2018
UPDATED: DEC 28, 2018 20 December 2018. At Café Frappé, Maastricht. Shared with Anke. Pours hazy black with a lasting, small, frothy, beige head; little lacing. Aroma of fondant, chocolate powder, coffee roast, roasted nuts, earth, cream, cookie, toast. Taste is light malty sweet, some chocolate powder, cream & roasted nuts; medium roasted bitterness on top of that, pure coffee roast, mocha; sourish blackcurrant in the back. Dry, earthy hoppy finish, toasty, lingering fondant, mocha & nuts, all very subtle, perhaps a bit too subtle. Medium body, watery/slick texture, fizzy carbonation. Very straightforward coffee Porter, almost unadventurous despite its craft beer character, yet highly drinkable.

NeverBinge (327) - Cologne, GERMANY - DEC 8, 2018
UPDATED: DEC 8, 2018 Almost black, this porter pours a medium head. The aroma is rather interesting: deep, sweet and malty with a vague hint of rum (when freshly poured). Mocha? Yes, you could interpret the nose that way - but not the taste on your tongue, which is assertively (nicely) bitter and hardly sweet at all, leading into a vaguely coffee-style finish. But there is a hard-to-describe element of monotony compared to other stouts and porters in the low-to-medium ABV range, which tend to be a tad more complex. Perhaps there is also less 'coffeeness' than the name suggests.

Alengrin (7413) - BELGIUM - NOV 19, 2018
Classic Rogue ale, a porter with mocha as the name says, a concept innovative enough perhaps in Rogue’s early days – being one of those earlier names in the American craft beer movement – but now common enough; bottle from Geers in Oostakker (Ghent). Moussy, pale greyish beige head, lacing in shreds and quickly opening; very dark chocolate brown robe, blackish in general looks, with lightly hazy mahogany edges. Aroma of cappuccino and mocha powder indeed, black burnt toast, bitter chocolate, nutmeg, blood-like iron, toasted walnut shells, black peppercorns, hard caramel candy. Very restrained in sweetness, more sourish in a very dim and soft way, softish carb, slick but somewhat thinnish mouthfeel; toasted nuts and burnt toast with a light metallic edge, ending in soft roasted bitterness with a coffee grounds effect rather than the expressive, fragrant coffee aromatics I was hoping for; nut shell and herbal hop effects linger in the background along with a blood-like metallic ‘zing’. Decent enough for what it is, a simple, basic modern coffee porter, a bit too basic perhaps and a bit ‘outdated’ – but demanding respect for its historical position as one of the first modern coffee porters in the global craft beer world (let’s not forget that this beer has been around since 1994, when there were only around 530-540 craft breweries active in the States – less than ten per cent of the current number).

GoddamnNoise (398) - Pontevedra, SPAIN - SEP 15, 2018
355 ml. bottle @ home, served in a tulip glass. Due date: 02/2019. Aroma: quite intense aromas of roasted malts, black coffee, roasted coffee, mocha, black chocolate, cocoa. Appearance: dark brown color, almost black, with beige foam made of tiny to small sized bubbles and quite creamy. Low to medium head thickness with high retention and medium Brussels' lacing. Too dark to talk about haziness. A thin layer of foam remains on top of the beer. Taste: low sweetness, medium bitterness, low sourness. Very intense flavors of dark chocolate, roasted coffee, roasted malts, cocoa, mocha. Balance is slightly towards the bitterness, and the acidity from the black malts is too much noticeable, but quite well balanced overall. Palate: low to medium body, watery texture, medium to high carbonation, very long dry finish with medium bitterness and the same previously mentioned flavors. Alcohol is very well hidden, no alcohol sweetness, no mouth nor throat warming. Low astringency and low to medium acidity from the black malts, quite good job with those dark malts. Overall: very good appearance, aromas and flavors. Roasted malts, roasted coffee, black chocolate. Low astringency and low to medium acidity from the black malts, good job with the black malts' mashing. Probably it would be better with a little more body, less watery texture, less acidity and a little bit less carbonation. Even with those little flaws, probably one of the best porters I've tasted so far. Excellent.

jybi (966) - FRANCE - SEP 8, 2018
La plus grande qualité de ce porter est sans conteste son équilibre qui en fait une bonne bière. Avec ses 5,7 % d'alcool, l'intensité aromatique et la présence en bouche est de plus très respectable et l'amertume à 47 d'IBU bien mise en valeur. Côté arômes, ceux-ci sont agréables et francs. Pour réellement l'apprécier il vous faudra toutefois aimer les porter tournés vers le chocolat. Moi qui préfère ceux qui se portent davantage sur le café, j'étais moins à la fête donc. Mais ceux-ci sont appréciables et sur une belle alliance avec des arômes de caramel et de fruits rouges. Un complexité plus poussée aurait tout de même été appréciable. En verre, la robe est brun foncé, sans mousse, l'effervescence étant peu poussée. Le nez laisse apparaître des arômes de chocolat, de brownie et de noisette. A l'attaque, ce sont les fruits rouges (fraise, groseille notamment) qui apparaissent enrobés de caramel et de chocolat. L'équilibre malt/amertume y est très bien trouvé. La deuxième bouche relativement linéaire monte d'intensité à la fois en arôme et en amertume. L'arrière bouche manque quant à elle quelque peu d'ampleur (arômes identiques). La troisième, au maximum d'amertume laisse alors place à un final d'une bonne longueur, avec une petite dose d'épices en compléments. Belle bière dans l'efficacité.
