3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Huge beige head on a murky brown body; Very special aroma that I am actually not sure is intended, beautiful special red berry aromas mixed with fine dark malts; Big and fitting carbonation on fruity acid balanced excellent body; Excellent big yeasty finish, more darker malt aromas and again the fruity very special touch. Very interesting very complex and very drinkable.
75cl. Dark red-brown with a nice fruity nose. The beer starts deep and fruity-sourish. Especially deep for the 5,5%. Fresh sourish with hints of wood and malt in the aftertaste, round and intense. Svesse (8613) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - JUN 21, 2014
(Bottle) Dark brown colour with firm, frothy, beige head. Malty, fruity nose with notes of dried fruit (prunes, raisins), caramel, dark bread, a touch of coffee, a slight oxidization and a mild lactic sourness. Fruity, malty, tart taste with dried fruit, prunes, sour cherries, caramel, dark bread, black-currant, hints of coffee and a sweet and sour finish with balanced bitterness and a certain sourness. Medium body, with a certain sweetness. This was a fairly old bottle (best before November 2013), and the sourness raises an eyebrow. But I suspect it’s supposed to be fairly sour, knowing the brewery and reading the early ratings. I wouldn’t classify this as a porter, it’s more like a black saison. And as such, it’s quite a nice one. AndreasJaeger (505) - Malmö, SWEDEN - FEB 12, 2013
Mörkt brun i färgen, litet vitt skum. Doftar unket sött syrligt, fel, illa, äckligt, fruktigt, kryddigt, avlopp. Smakar som det doftar, riktigt illa. tderoeck (9886) - Gent, BELGIUM - AUG 21, 2012

Cloudy beige brown beer, small off-white head, unstable, non adhesive. Aroma: urine, sourish, herbal, little bitter. MF: soft to no carbon, light body. Taste: nasty, that’s as far as I can get. Man I do not like this brew at all, it’s disgusting.
75cl Bottle @RBBSG, courtesy of Sebletitje. Dark brown coloured beer with some light carbonation, some yeast particles and a medium off white head. Fruity special, light sour malty hinted aroma. Medium to full fruity palate. Finish is sweet malty fruity and light sour sweet balanced with as trange hoppy fruity touch. Rather different brew, definitly not your regular Porter. But ok.

@ 2nd RBBSG, thx to Sebletitje 75cl Martinus (4610) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - AUG 16, 2012
Head: white, medium
Colour: black / dark brown
Smell: very sweet, lots of malts, little noticeable of coffee or porter, cloying
Taste: allong the line of the aroma, especially that colying feeling, too sticky, sweet, malts, sugar, caramel, and then the horrible sour notes in it ...
Sorry not my cup of tea ...
Dark brown colour, white head. Light sour aroma, malts, berries, ureum, light yeast. Light sour flavour, fruity. Hefty carbonation. Light sour finish, quite fresh.
