Big thanks to Zeev for that one! Bottle looks really good. Beer in the glass deep black, nice head. Starts intense malty, roasty, some earthy-woody notes. Hints of bitter chocolate, some coffee. Dry-malty finish, but well balanced. A good one!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Barrack, all the way from the the holy land. Just a tad past its BB date. Black beer with large head that fades, not much lacing. Aroma has a lot of black unfermented syrup, sweetness, a little bit of mineral. Flavor is sweet, again a bit syrupy. Decent enough porter.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Alexander Black has a thick, foamy, beige head, a dark brown (with lighter brown highlights) appearance, visible tan chunks roiling about, and fairly substantial lacing left on the glass. The aroma is of dark, sweet, brown bread crust, and the flavor is of sweet, slightly charred, dark-roasted malt, balancing hop bitterness, and a touch of sugar and acid. Mouthfeel is medium to full, and Alexander Black finishes wet and sweet.

12 ounce bottle thanks to Barak. Pours a very dark almost jet black color with a small beige head. A nice nose of roast, berries and some ash. The flavor is very strong dark fruit, cocoa, vanilla, lingering roast. Very nice beer. Flavorful. Lighter coffee, dark chocolate. Maybe a tad bit thin. Cola. Solid beer.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Not merely a solid porter, this is an excellent one, with an ABV, flavor and aroma profile leaning toward an imperial porter or foreign Export Stout. Excellent balance and very good complexity. Higher ABV is hidden excepting some inevitable warming. The aroma (rting approaches 9) is fruitier and even more enjoyable than the fine flavor. There are dates, raisins and other dark fruits in the flavor, with hints of toffee, vanilla, and dark breads. In ends with dark roasted grains, light smoke, toast, and some dark fruits in the finish and aftertaste. Very smooth, near full body.
