Bottle @ Assentoft tasting. Nice head with excellent duration. Color is amber. Aroma and taste are little lactose acid, citrus, caramel, malt and hops. A little off.

Porter? Ruby red. Irish ale with some hops? Ok, but a weird hybrid of styles

500ml bottle, LOT 1010, BB Feb 2015
Dark-brown in the glass with a more white-than-beige head. For a porter quite light in colour... The beer starts smooth, fruity and roasted-rich. The mainpart is smooth, long and intense. Dark fruit, roasted malt. But in total more a dark ale than a Porter (and on the lable it doesn’t specify its style). The aftertaste is roasted-dark, dry and nicely bittered.
In total a nice dark ale. Fruity-roasted and bitter. --> 12/11/12/12

Nice porter with some leaves and earthy moments. Quite a bit bitter and thin in the end. This one ist just a bit above average,

McTapps (6889) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - MAR 18, 2014
Pours out of the bottle (thank you Steve!) in a deep dark colour with low steady head and medium to smooth body. Nice aroma of malt and torf. Taste of dark coffee, woods, leaves, nuts, dark berries and malt. Quite earthy finish. Nice and smooth to drink, enjoyed it a lot.

Seaneh (6) - IRELAND - MAR 13, 2014 does not count
This, to me, is a perfect example of brewing beers not styles. It’s labeled as a "ruby porter" but could easily be called a brown ale, dark ale, or a number of other things. Lots of burnt caramel or muscovado sugar maltiness, little coffee bitterness, some spiciness from the hops to balance it out. One of my favourite Irish beers. Makes a fantastic base liquor for a beef or lamb stew too!

Scottishchris (723) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 15, 2014
Bottle from Tesco. Red brown, frothy white head. Sweet caramel malty notes. Medium body, low carbonation. Coffee ish. Fairly non-descript and not a porter!

Bu en bouteille de 50cl, une bière très brune et pas de mousse, en bouche c’est l’arôme du café qui prédomine sur tout le reste, c’est assez sympa et bien fait.
