December 18, 2014. Bottle at home, best before september 2015. Received in a trade, thanks Beersiveknown!
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.

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.

ryanscourt (1567) - Latrobe, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 27, 2014
Porter? Ruby red. Irish ale with some hops? Ok, but a weird hybrid of styles

Erzengel (9751) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - APR 24, 2014
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

MichaelAwesome (6546) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - MAR 18, 2014
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 (6984) - 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.
