This is not a porter, but something like a malty lemonade drink.
Doesn't even taste like beer.

This is the only beer I poured out and did not finish, ever. Not worth the bytes it takes to write more.

I lived in Germany for 5 years and tried around 100 or so beers and I want to go on record saying that I love porters and this is no porter it tastes like a mixture of an average Pilsner coca cola and a twist of lemon with carbonation added very unGerman

This is one of the better porters I have tasted. I really must say that the Lausitzer "cherry" porter is one of my favorite beers but sadly enough said about a beer that you can only get in the Dresden Berlin area. Lausitzer porter is a wonderful beer that is of my taste. Most think it is too sweet but I feel it is just right. Don't drink porter if you don't like a bit of sweetness to your beer. I wonder if this should be under schwartzbier.
This beer has a rich malt taste and is way too drinkable.

Interesting for a German dark bier. Notice is not labelled as a dunkel, but does allude tot he darkness with the "Schwarzes" on the label. They call it porter, but it closest to a Dutch Brun/Oud style. Very sweet...Poured a overly frothy head, deep dark black/brown. The initial sweetness hits you right away, letting you know this is not a typical German beer. Different from any German beer I've had, but would be right at home in the Netherlands. Not bad, if you are prepared for it....

Brown 500ml bottle, brought home from Berlin earlier this year: poured into an Abbot Ale glass tankard a month before it's best before date. Never had a German Porter before, which is why it got bought.

Looked good, lovely ruby red, deep brown body with a huge bubbley head of off white. Good carbonisation, as you could clearly see the bubbles rising through the body.

The smell was of sweet molasses, too sweet in fact, that sweetness carried on into the taste, this is a fizzy malty nasty brew and a big let down.

Behind the sweetness and fizz is a watery body without complexity or strength.

Not at all what I was expecting, a waste of money and luggage space on the flight home!

500ml bottle into Guinness pint glass in North Berlin, Germany. Reviewed live.

A: Three finger head of nice cream and thickness, with far above average (four minute) retention. Very dark red amber colour.

Sm: Very light amber hop scent. Difficult to detect individual notes with me broken nose.

T: Generic amber hops mixed with slight cream and maybe some nuts. Complex enough, featuring a biased battle betwixt nutty hops and esters, resulting in nuts as the ultimate victor. That said, most notes are subtle and pleasant. Built nicely, albeit a bit lightly, for a schwarzbier.

Mf: Quite coarse - especially on the curtail - and surprisingly dry on the climax in spite of its wet open. Not at all brewed to match the body, which is assuredly unfortunate.

Dr: Low ABV is concealed; surprise surfuckingprise. Slides down easy enough. The esters are quite pleasant. Give it a go, but don't expect the world.
