Bottle thanks to Colin. Shared with Jcwattsrugger. Pours brown with off white head. Nose and taste of toast, cocoa, nuts and toffee. Medium body.

stravale (3065) - Co. Westmeath, IRELAND - NOV 28, 2013
Bottle from Tesco [291113]
Ruby brown, frothy off white head that dissipates to thin layer, little lacing
Aroma of soft sweet caramel malts, soft fruits - raisin, hint of red berries, toasted malts, light aroma
Taste as aroma, some more light toasted malt, bit of tangy red fruits, light soft toffee
Palate - Medium carb, thinnish palate, light bitter. Finish - more bitter toasted malts and hops, slight coffee.
Overall - No way this is a porter, more a Irish red ale - brown bitter hybrid. Wasn’t overly keen on this initially but got better with the drinking. Probably better cask, this bottle was a bit thin and a tad fizzy....didn’t expect this to be in the high 70s

elbernays (1509) - Dublin, IRELAND - NOV 4, 2013
Strange porter this. Pours deep clear ruby red with off white head. Aroma is raspberry, red grape and cherries. Flavour is fresh sweet for rest fruits, toffee malts with sour bitter finish. I Medium carbonation, nice fresh feel. Nice.

culchiem (3978) - Berlin, GERMANY - OCT 23, 2013
Cask. Amber brown with a full head. Acidic fruit aroma. Flavour is soft fruit, sticky raspberry on a sour hop finish.

BlackHaddock (7346) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 18, 2013
500ml Bottle: BBD end of Jul 14, poured slowly into an ’Old Speckled Hen’ vase shaped pint at home on 18th Oct 13. Brought back from Northern Ireland by my Son-in-Law last week. Lovely looking brew: Mahogany, reddy brown body, clear and clean, on top a thin wispy off-white covering and collar. Plenty of carbonation bubbles rising through. Aroma is malted nuts and toffee with attitude. The taste is all malt flavours with caramel, toffee and candid fruits to the fore: behind comes an undertone of hop bitterness and woody notes. Certainly different and interesting: good depth of flavours within the body and overall a fine beer.

Dark amber pour. Got that De Molen carbonation thing going on. This whole style thing befuddles me. Porter? Horses.

ciaranc (1102) - Dublin, IRELAND - AUG 4, 2013
Light brown pour, thin white head. Dust, earth, nuts in the nose. Nuts and toasted malt in the flavour. Thin body, quite fizzy. Short finish.

Embrouille (2853) - SWITZERLAND - AUG 2, 2013
Bottled 50cl. Courtesy of jaghana- thanks a lot! Fruity, smooth. Nice malt profile. Balanced. Nice.

Dogbrick (13012) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 14, 2013
Dark brown pour with a medium khaki head that diminishes steadily to a film. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of malt and ripe fruit. Light body with flavors of earthy malt, roasted coffee and a touch of dark fruit. The finish is sweet with a malty aftertaste. Decent overall.
