From the bottle, it pours a clear reddish brown with a nice off white/light tan head that lasts and leaves lacing. In the nose, it has a touch of caramel and malt. In the mouth, the same - a tad sweet, but perhaps that is the way of the Hanseatic Porter?? I think so as there is a listing for sugar in the ingredient list. Hmmm.

I thought I love all Störtebeker beers. The Weizen is awsome, the Pale Ale is nice, but the Porter is just...... sweet. Very disappointing. The label says it has alcohol. It doesn't really taste like a real beer. More like a soda or German Malzbier.
Smells sweet, drinks sticky and makes you longing for a real beer to get the sweetness out of your month.

Too sweet, not enough else...
EDIT// There's actually a bit going on there but the sugar does overwhelm -- it had added sugar!!!

Pours a clear brown coloration with an amber hue and a medium, fizzy head. Smells of sweet malt, brown sugar, caramel and molasses. Taste is dominated by a mellow malt sweetness with notes of brown sugar, caramel, molasses and a hint of dark fruit and nuttyness. This might make for a pretty decent alcoholic Malzbier, but a terrible, terrible Porter. Then again, if I wanted a Malzbier, I would buy one. Drainpoured half of this, way too sweet, very little roastiness, no bitterness at all.

L: purs a nice brown color, a small top of head are there as well. Some lacings on the side of the glass.

A: strong aroma of roasted malts and bread, with some hints of caramel and dark fruits.

T&F: very very sweet and sugary. Roasted malts and caramel in the back, but it get very dominated by the sweetness.some bitterness in the finish.

O: This beer was way to sweet for my taste, and for how I like the porters. I have no problem finish the beer, but I would not buy it again for sure.

-pours a clear dark ruby with a small beige-brown head,which quickly disipates
-brown bread,caramel,syrup,molasses
-caramel,syrup with a bready and slightly roasty finish
-disgustingly sweet
-low carbonation,light-medium body
1.The Label specifically mentions this is a lager,not an ale,which would make it a Schwarzbier.
2.The Beer is sickeningly sweet,i had to pour it down the drain,first time ive ever done that with a beer

Appearance: dark brown, with a nice hazel foam that disappears quickly.

Smell: sweet and spicy, liquorice, tar, coffee and caramel.

Taste: very sweet, burnt brown sugar, malt, liquorice and coffee. Almost no bitterness. The finish is clean and sweet.

Mouthfeel: sticky, but light.

Overall: this was not a beer in my taste. Far too sweet for my taste. It's an alright porter, at the end of the day.

The beer pours with a fizzing sound. The clear liquid is brown (50 EBC), the two finger off-white compact head slowly sinks down to a thin lid leaving no lacing.

The smell is semi-dry with (qute a lot of) roasted malts, some tartness, some wort-like sweetness.

The taste is aggressively sweet, almost to the saccharine-sweetnes of Swedish Svagdricka small beer. Some roasted malts, light clean bitter notes. Light to medium body. The aftertaste adds wort-like sweet flavours, some light malt sourness and notes of German Pumpernickel. The finish is clean and sweet.

The carbonation is strong, the mid-sized fresh bubbles shortlived. The liquid is thin and somewhat sticky.

Waaay to sweet, but besides that an OK porter.

Stoertbeker sampler six pack from Toom. Deep brown color, taste of smoke and peat. Some sweetness comes through the mustiness, with a little coffee bitterness. Not too bad.

Had never had a beer from Störtebeker before so I was excited to find a mixed six pack at my local drink store. I was even a little more excited when I saw the porter, a very rare style for German breweries.

The appearance was kind of a coke brown with a light head, kind of reminded me of a glass of coke. Disappointing because I was expecting an english/american-esk blackness. Smell was the best part, with the chocolatey malts really standing out. Unfortunately all that didn't translate well into taste, the sweetness of the malts were really overpowering. Some hops to balance that out would have been greatly appreciated.

It was not really hard to drink, but I can't picture myself intentionally buying another one.
