Bottle @ home. Aroma is lots of roast, some liquorice and a touch of red fruit. Flavour is medium bitterness, big in roast, quite dry. High carbonation. Easy drinking for a full flavoured porter. Nice.

0.75 l Bottle 040 of 2008 batch - Roasted notes and cocoa on nose, red color, tan head. Palate was like a fine cup of coffee with the watery finish I associate with the style.

Draught. Congregation Ale House calls this, "Jack the Ripper". I guess this is the one. Light, muddy brown body under persistent, brownish thin head and netting of lacing. There are musty basement aromas and notes of salty, bitter licorice. Taste is sour, sweet, and salty. Palate and mouth is abrased by any lengthy contact with the beer. So lively that it hurts. Maybe thats why its called, "Jack the Ripper" as 1914 is a bit late. Overall, an excellent beer.

Vaiz (4460) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - AUG 26, 2011
Bottle. Dark brown pour, thick foamy off-white head that lasts forever. Aroma is roasty, sugary malts, very spicy, licorice and with typical De Molen yeast. Flavor is quite bitter, very spicy and roasted, with very lively carbonation. Slightly peppery and almost like there are some chilies hidden. Slightly off-balance though and a bit rough.

Bottle #1049/1182, 75cl corked. Brune claire, mousse est trs active mme aprs ouverture. Arme est au dbut un peu faiblarde avec pas mal de houblon citronn, au fur et mesure, un profile malt grill commence a perc et vraiment donner cette bire sa dimension de London Porter. En bouche, sec, houblon se fait bien prsent avec une lgre amertume,e citronne. Le malt suit et ajoute un beau profile grill, moka-caf le tout restant bien lger en bouche, suffisamment pour ce volume. Malheureusement la levure reste un tantinet active et au final on obtient une bire qui arrive a bien jouer sur lamertume de ce houblon avec tjrs un fini citronn qui vient se mlanger au malt.

Koelschtrinker (18752) - Kln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 19, 2011
Scharf malziger Geruch, etwas schokoladig. Trocken malziger Antrunk mit wenig feststellbarer Hopfennote. Im Mittelteil findet eine aromatische Entbreitung statt, besonders das Malz wirkt voll und lecker. Herb im hinteren Teil und im Abgang, angenehm und knackig, zum Ende hin erst etwas milder, spter rstig-s. Danke an den Doppelbock fr das Teilen des Bieres. Test vom 24.9.2008, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 11,11,11,12,13,11 - 11,25

Bottle. Cork blew out as soon as I released the cage. Pours a very dark brown with a huge beige coloured head. Head dies away very quickly leaving just the faintest of skin. Typical porter aromas. Roasted grain, light smoke, coffee and dark fruits. A little sourness comes through as it warms. Flavours are dominated by bitterness from the roasted grain. Some nutty sweetness. Sour fruity after taste. Medium mouthfeel. Not too bad.
