Bottle sample at a tasting at Max’ place. Thanks a lot Tom L.Clear brown with white film. Sweet and nutty aroma, a little chocolate as well. Nutty taste, slightly bitter and toasty, then sweet. Lightish body, chocolate and nutty finish. Nothing new but tasty and balanced. DSG (14784) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JUN 14, 2015
Bottle sample at a tasting at Max’s place. Thanks Tom L. Clear brown with a beige head. Aroma of malt, toast, nutty notes, a bit of caramel, a bit of fruitiness. Sweetish flavor with malt, toast, caramel, some nuts, a chocolate hint and a drier finish, slightly bitterish. Medium-bodied. OK. Not really a Porter. jamaty (2146) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 8, 2015

500ml bottle. Dark, ruby ale with light head that faded quickly. Toffee nose. Malt taste with bitter toffee aftertaste. Would go well with crisps or nuts. hackobock (4029) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 18, 2014

Ruby red with a quite large tan head. Aroma is malty with toffee and bread notes,some earthy and floral notes, faint notes of dark fruits and red berries. Taste is medium sweet toffee and berries, light nutty with coffee notes and light bitter. Finish is light to medium bitter. Medium bodied, average to fizzy carbonation.
Hazy amber color with a big tan head. Good looking ale. Nice lacing. Bready, malty and fruity aroma. Nice body. Tad sweet and a moderate bitterness. Maybe a bit rich carbonation. Oily texture. Bready, malty, fruity, plums and raisins in the flavor. When I rate this one, it is listed as a porter….hmmm more like a low alcohol Barley Wine. Tasty ale.Zita (6325) - Assentoft, DENMARK - MAY 16, 2014
