Thnx to phille. Pours dark brown. Ok white head. Fluffy and stable. Smell isbit sweet, rather full malty. Taste is caramelly ( sweet) some metallic notes. High carbo, not too much body but still in the ok zone. Meh... Not bad, but like the BA version, I have questions about why this would be called a porter...

Alengrin (4999) - BELGIUM - SEP 20, 2014
One of Montaigus first beers - and an attempt at porter, for that matter. Light beige, creamy head over a murky bronze beer showing an aroma of candied fruits, chocolate, hazelnuts but unfortunately some DMS (cooked cabbage) too. Sweetish taste of candied dates, esters, candi sugar, rich dark maltiness, some vague smokiness and light roasted bitterness in the end. Acceptable, but I had much better porters. It is clear this is a style Belgian brewers are not yet familiar with.

Een bier met een enorm uitgesproken smaak, maar spijtig genoeg absoluut niet mijn ding

Un porter belge titrant 8 % abv. Couleur brune trs fonce, et rousse en transparence. Lger trouble. Bulles fines en colonnes trs verticales dune range la fois. Mousse beige moyen bien crmeuse. Armes de chocolat au lait, fruits mrs, caramel, butterscotch, pointe de noisettes. 1re bouche douce et sur un caf doux, chocolat genre noir 50%, pointe dpices et prune. Arrire-bouche bien complte, avec malt et houblon. 2me bouche plus dense que la 1re, sur le caf, quasiment la limite du stout. Volume bien soyeux. 3me plus fondue avec du malt torrfi et un bon fond de levure. Arrire-bouche solidement charpente mais pas du tout ardue. La longueur est un peu linaire, douce et belle mais sans rel progrs. La levure est bien structure, adapte au genre. Lalcool est bien progressif et soutient bien. La finale pche de la mme faon que la longueur. CONCLUSION: belle bire assurment, mais qui pourrait tre plus dmonstrative sur la longueur. Il ny a pas de fausse note sauf une 2me bouche un peu dense pour un porter.

Very hazy dark brown with a large, creamy and lacy head. Slightly sweet, licoricey nose with lightly roasted malt and a touch of tartness.
