Werckmeister (3060) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - JAN 22, 2016
0,5l bottle at home from trade with Minutemat, big thanks. Bottled 13.08.2015, BB 13.08.2016. Hops: Columbus, Chinook, Motueka. almost black color, rather big coffee-colored head. smells of tropical fruits, some pines, a bit pukeish, some roast, lychee, some black currant, bit licorice, very light cocoa powder, nice smell. medium body, light carbonation, soft mouthfeel. tastes of tropical fruits, spices, peppery, even light chili, coffee, cocoa, light roast, light pines, a bit pukeish again, rather soapy. finishes lightly dry and a bit bitter with some roast with notes of black currant, lightly fruity and some licorice. good beer but maybe I had it a bit too long at home, the hops have some distracting qualities, its rather soapy, rather licoriceish. overall drinkable but was expecting quite a bit more.

Black with thick creamy head. Initially the roasted malts come through well but the finish is dominated by strong, bitter, piney hops.

Ysok02 (1450) - Mons, BELGIUM - JAN 16, 2016
Robe brune, mousse crmeuse, mais peu persistante. Nez qui allie des notes houblone frais, de gingembre, un cot lgrement torrfi et fum. Bouche lattaque frache dabord houblonne puis torrfie, la matire est imposante, lensemble est complexe et la finale frache et houblonne. Un porter "atypique" tant il es frais et complexe. un dlice boire et mme laisser vieillir.

Hopverdju (1116) - BELGIUM - DEC 26, 2015
Zwart bier met een kleine beige schuimkraag. Geur: geroosterde mout, chocolade, kruidig, aards. Smaak: lekker geroosterd! Als goed gebrande koffie. Aards als bittere chocolade, wat zoetigheid. Redelijk volmondig en goeie carbonatie. afdronk met bittere hop, koffie en donkere chocolade. Opmerkelijk, zeker gezien het alcohol gehalte!

Aroma:
Medium aroma of malts, caramel, dark fruit, chocolate, roasted malts and hops.

Appearance:
Opaque black beer with a medium brown head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts medium sweet with malts, caramel, dark fruit and chocolate; ends slightly bitter and dry with roasted malts and hops.

Overall:
This beer is intense, complex and balanced. Had a hoppy and liquorice one last time, but this one has the roasted malts shining through. I understand that they do not make a different entry every time they make this beer with different ingredients, but it is still a little shameful. Amazing beer nonetheless and will definitely try to get my hands on this one again and again.

Pitch black, light brownish head. Aroma kiwi, citrus, tangerine and coffee. Palate medium, medium carbonation. Taste meaty, tropical fruit zest with precisely balaced roasted bitter dry finish. It is details which make this beer so good.
