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

ciaranc (1306) - 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 (2854) - SWITZERLAND - AUG 2, 2013
Bottled 50cl. Courtesy of jaghana- thanks a lot! Fruity, smooth. Nice malt profile. Balanced. Nice.

Dogbrick (13777) - 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.

bytemesis (9233) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - MAY 1, 2013
Bottle - thanks Ben! Pours clear auburn with a large pillowy beige head that dissipates slowly with nice lacing. Aroma is caramel, roasted malts, toffee, cardboard. Flavor is the same, medium sweet, coffee, light finishing coffee bitterness and astringence. Medium body. I would have thought it was a brown ale, but perhaps it is a bit too hoppy for that.

BenH (3434) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 30, 2013
Bottle thanks to Beersiveknown. Pours a nice glowing red brown colour with short lasting off white head. Fruity caramel aroma, some sharp red apple and dried fruit, raisins toffee. Taste is kind of tangy caramel and toffee with dried fruit, raisins. Quite dry with a tangy finish. Not like any porter I’ve ever had and altogether a bit of a strange beer. Interesting though

3.3
Beermack (725) - London, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 29, 2013
Cask conditioned at Bull and Castle, Dublin. Deep murky ruby with thin crown of off-white froth. Aroma gives some red fruit (cherries), some very sweet toffee, and some light roasted malt. Taste gives a bit of slighty-too-sour fruit: cherries are there, but a bit weird - not necessarily bad though. Caramel and light roasted malt come through too. Some lightly astringent hoppiness to finish, with earthy and light citric notes staying on the palate. Not bad. A bit odd - ordering a porter, you won't expect this. Found it to be closer to an Irish red ale - not much of note going on, but tasty enough.

3.5
Creedence (314) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 29, 2013
500ml bottle at Bierhaus. Pours a hazy dark ruby with a pillowy off-white head. Strong chocolate, turkish delight, and slight liquorice on the nose. Med sweetness, light smoky bacon, light sourness. Quite grassy and chocalatey flavour. Smooth carbonation, medium body. Malty sweet aftertaste, quite dry. Very tasty and interesting, but a bit rough around the edges. Definitely worth a try though.

3.3
Deu (949) - Nantes, FRANCE - APR 25, 2013
UPDATED: SEP 4, 2013 On cask at the brew dock in Dublin. Colour of a red ale. Taste of caramel. Overall OK. Y
