- schöne dunkelbraune Farbe
- starke Schaumbildung welche dann relativ schnell zerfällt
- geruchstechnisch findet man leichte Frucht- bzw. Rauch-
- geschmacklich setzt sich dies dann auch fort, wobei dann
doch das Porter etwas die Oberhand gewinnt
- im Abgang hat man dann endgültig mehr das Gefühl ein
Porter zu trinken
Fazit: Interessantes und gutes Hybrid-Bier

0.75 l bottle from ’REWE Budnik & Homberg’, 2014 vintage, best before January 2016. Clear, dark ruby with a large, dense, almost stable, beige head. Sweetish, malty and fruity aroma of raisins, prunes, caramel, molasses and a touch of roast. Sweet, malty, fruity and a little yeasty taste of raisins, prunes, caramel, candied cherries, molasses and some port, followed by a medium long, minimally bitter, vinous, slightly roasty and a bit warming-alcoholic finish with notes of dark chocolate, coffee and port. Medium body, slightly creamy and a bit effervescent mouthfeel, soft to average carbonation. Not quite what I expected, it’s not as chocolaty or coffeish as I would have thought, but it’s very fruity and port-like (already). High complexity, well-balanced, could only have a bit more body. Still good though, very unique beer! Beersiveknown (5309) - NORTHERN IRELAND - JUL 30, 2016

Big, rich full bodied beer, moderate carbonation, weisse like spicey aroma with a hint of chocolate. Taste wise its a lot more porter than weisse - toasty, roasty barley, cocoa, dry and earthy, quite rich and aventinus like at times but I’d have liked more if the weisse character to come through in flavour.
Bottle at the Aaahhh...Øl!!! Julebord 2015. Dark brown body, staying beige head. Aroma is grainy with banana, roast and spices. Taste is spicy yeast, wood, sweet caramel, ghood body with a solid yeast and roast finish. Malty_MacHops (688) - Eastanollee, Georgia, USA - JUN 26, 2016
Deep and dark. Strong notes of bitter chocolate with molasses and a touch of dark dried fruit.
