tom10101 (6032) - Quebec, CANADA - AUG 28, 2013
Bottle (330 ml). Best before 06/2013. Extra from Yannick, thanks! Dark brown with a small beige head and little lacing. Aroma of dark fruits and light roasted malt along with light chocolate nose... mild, but not offensive. Taste is slightly to moderately sweet and about the same as aroma with an oak touch. Light body, a tad watery. Low to moderate carbonation. Not very complex, but not bad. Interesting fruitiness. Reminds me of a "poor man" Zwet.Be.

Un petit calice sur la rue Laurier. Une robe presque noire et un col monté pour permettre l’installation d’une dentelle. Un nez de choses noires et de fruits foncés avec des pointes de jus d’olives grecques. Le goût est particulièrement amélioré avec un fruité plus agréable et des malts nettement plus chocolatés. En bouche, le liquide montre un corps de faible densité avec une texture crémeuse et un pétillement qui tire vers le bas. En finale, ce porter me laisse une impression fruitée et une sensation presque épicée qui me fait penser à la racine de réglisse ou même à l’anis étoilé.

Bottle. Pours a thin dark brown beer with a big beige head on top. Aroma is coffee and roasted malts. Flavour has a lot of coffee influences, as well as some sweet notes. Very carbonated mouthfeel, short finish and quite watery texture.

DruncanVeasey (8225) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JUN 20, 2013
330ml from Beer Gonzo. Ruby-edged mahogany with a firm cream head. Nose of rust, coal smoke, grilled vegetables and redcurrant. The rust wins. Good, finely burnt taste with souring berry and bramble undercurrents reminiscent of an English stout. Hints of well-roasted nut and black cherry over that prevailing tang of dark berries and blackcurrant. Creamy mouthfeel. Pretty good.

Pikzwarte kleur, smaakt en ruikt naar zure koffie, mokka, rook, beetje chocolade, echt bah

johndoughty (5398) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 19, 2013
Bottle, Black with a medium head. Malty with a medium body which reminded me of a cross between a stout and a brown ale. Different and worth trying.

33 cl bottle.
Originally rated on 20100226.
Pours dark brown color with a small head. Aroma of roasted malts, some fruits and hints of chocolate. Flavor of malts, chocolate and fruits.

Swaroga (2213) - Warszawa, POLAND - FEB 17, 2013
33cl bottle. Dark brown with medium, lightly tanned head. Nose : cheese, yeast, smoke, black chocolate. Nuts. Sip : medium thick and creamy, low carbonation. Moderately sweet start collapses under delicate smoky flavour of black chocolate, clove and cooked fruits that develops a gentile dry ending. It’s a nice porter if one enjoys smoked, torrified malts and dry finish. OK.
