tomer (3416) - Rishon Le Zion, - NOV 17, 2012
Bottle, creamy beige head, opaque very dark brown to black colour, musty aeoma with cardcoard and some roastiness, flavour of dark chocolate, charred wood and hints of roasted cofee and smoke, suprisingly light bodied. Drinkable but not too good.

In Tel Aviv at Waffle shop on Ben Yehuda St. Pours black with white foam head that recedes quickly and leaves a thin film. Taste is roasted malt up front but is watery on the finish with an almost sour flavor. It's ok - nothing more. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle, thanks Eddan. Dark brownnish/red with a small creamy head. Aroma and taste of light roasted malt, some coffee, ham and salt. A bit tart with a dry finish. The body was on the weak side, still an ok beer.

@ Eddan: En ganska lätt rostat doft med toner av kaffe och lite bitter choklad. Smaken har även en liten sälta och små röktoner. Lite torr och bitter eftersmak. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

kerenmk (4664) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - OCT 24, 2012
Bottle. Pours brown-black with a big white soapy head. Smells sweet, wine, turpentine, ink and faintly roasty. Tastes sweet, a little woody, a little alcoholic. Light to medium body, overly fizzy, short, faint roasty and alcoholic finish.

DSG (13956) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - OCT 11, 2012
Bottle. Dark brown to black color, cola-like, with a cool-looking huge beige head that ends with a big round bulge that rises above the glass. Roasty aroma, a bit acidic, with a bit of coffee, yeasty notes and faint vegetal hints. Sweetish malt flavor, pretty roasty, with some toasted bread, a bit of chocolate, a "green" hint, light acidic notes and a dry finish with mild bitterness and some coffee. Medium-bodied, slightly over-carbonated at first. Not bad, very light and easy-drinking for a 7% Porter. Alcohol is really well-hidden.

330ml (tried to be) poured into a tulip glass. Half of the beer gushed out of the glass. The remaining half is clear purple-brown. Huge airy head, gone fast but left lace. Mild black cherries on the nose, with mellow roastiness and yeast. Chocolate flavors, mild coffee, low bitterness, yeast and some dark fruit tones. Alcohol is pretty hidden, medium bodied, creamy. Not potent but decent.

Stable big foamy head over opaque body with just a few red highlights (but you have to really look hard) Aroma of roast and coffee, pleasant, but a bit one-dimensional. Taste of heavy roast and coca-cola, very dry. This may be better characterized as a stout than a porter. Like the aroma, its pretty good, but one dimensional. Palate is roast bitterness. Decent beer, but could use some tweaking.
