Swaroga (2127) - Gdańsk, 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.

laiti (8135) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 24, 2013
33 cl bottle @ home. Rated on 15.03.2010
Aroma has earthy notes, some herbs and slightly sour. Flavour is quite odd with herbs, spices, some licorice and some fruity notes. Weird and messy, why did Alko take this?

erickok (5520) - Leuven, BELGIUM - DEC 29, 2012
Nice looking dark, mostly clear body with tan lace. Roasted malts, sticky dark fruit and forest hops. Easily drinkable body, somewhat oily texture. Decent brew, but straightforward. (33cl bottle from De Bierwinkel Leiden)

JesseM (1158) - Margaritaville, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 15, 2012
UPDATED: SEP 30, 2012 33cl bottle from Cellier des Arcades, Arras. Pours an opaque dark brown, small tan head. Aroma: roasted malts, maple syrup, chocolate, smoke, quite nice. Flavour: prickly feel, smokey, chocolate malt, slightly nutty, again quite good. Rare to find porters or stouts made in France, but I have yet to come across a bad one. They get a lot of foreign imports of this style so I wonder if it’s something local brewers just don’t bother with much.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - MAR 27, 2012
330mL. Pours a deep brown, clear, to near black. More of a cola SRM. Larger brown larger bubbled head about 4 fingers high in the snifter tulip. No lace. Probably this glass specific glass refuses to take any lacing. Nose is mild red wine barrel. Taste is tangy and mildly dirty with some open fermentation oddities. Some earthen soil character. Palate is thin and tangy. Mild cinnamon character. Interesting. Odd tanginess with some cloven Christmas character but also iron rich soil unfortunately.

jaghana (5595) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - JAN 19, 2012
Botlte 33cl, a dark beer with medium head. This beer is very near a porter, properly done with bitter chocolate notes and toasted notes, good body, without acid and acrid notes, good beer near to an uk one.

HoppyPete (27) - AUSTRALIA - JAN 16, 2012
Highly carbonated. Wonderful appearance, dark brown, with lingering white head. No hop aroma, but lovely caramel flavours. A well balanced brew.

sebletitje (9553) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JAN 8, 2012
75cl bottle, gusher. Brune foncée, col épais moka. Arôme malté, grillé avec une pointe de chocolat amer, léger houblon herbacé. Palais est agréable, mais tient ce profile levure un peu aigre qui fait que tout le bon côté d’une bière proche du style porter s’en retrouve diminué par un palais lactique/aigre. Carbonnation est pétillante avec une levure trop active. Ressent un profile fruits noirs en retrait laissant ce fini aigre. En se réchauffant, le chocolat se fait plus présent et redonne donc un peu de caractère. Dommage car il y a un bon potentiel.
