maneliquor (3116) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JAN 30, 2011
Pours a dark brown with a medium off white head, the colour of brown sugar. Aromas of brown sugar with some burnt cocoa and coffee. The brown sugar is in the taste and gives it a sweetness throughout which seems to overcome a large bitterness from a large, very pronounced coffee flavour. Thick espresso like mouthfeel. Good, heavy porter all round but not my prefferred type of porter

poisoneddwarf (1716) - Rathdrum, Idaho, USA - JAN 22, 2011
16.9 oz bottle into English pint. Pours black with deep burgandy hues showing through when held up to the light. Has a medium light tan head that dissipates in a couple of minutes leaving a blanket of foam and some lace. Aroma is ripe black cherries, Whoppers, a hint of roasted coffee. Taste is bittesweet with a touch of sour. Has a milk chocolate taste. The coffee flavor is much more pronounced in flavor than aroma. Flavor is not as strong as the aroma. Carbonation and body are medium. Not bad ’tall.

Boliv (1149) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 7, 2011
UPDATED: JAN 30, 2011 16.9oz bottle, and the first (new) beer of 2011. Pours very deep reddish brown, opaque in the glass, with a 3-finger frothy brown head. Aromas of toffee, caramel, brown sugar and sugar cane, hazelnut, and vanilla. Flavors of toffee, caramel, sugar cane, mocha/latte, and milk chocolate. Low carbonation, creamy and smooth, and warming; the alcohol is well-hidden. This was quite the tasty beer, and for $2.50/bottle, a great deal; I’ll be getting a few more of these.

IndianaRed (2472) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 2, 2011
Bottle, into a snifter. Deep black color, full but rather quickly dissipating coarse dark tan head. Wonderful, rich chocolate and raisins some smoke and roasted malts are on the nose. Flavors are similar, some dark brown sugar and a little wet wood as well. fairly sweet, even for a Baltic. Lively carbonation and a rather lighter body than others of the style. Lingering smokey slightly bitter trailer.

ALLOVATE (2413) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - DEC 22, 2010
Produces a deepest, darkest cola brown and oily, viscous yet reserving of a mochaccino whipped-up pad of tannish foam. Along the glass fine beads of carbonation move hesitantly to the surface. A trail of fine lace adheres itself in webs as it wanes. Deeply nutty, heavily roasted, and savoury rich fruit cake nose (raisins, prunes, demerara sugar, caramelised butter, the list goes on..) layered, upon layered with hints of salty kecap manis and nori, wafts of oaked sherry, damp, mossed wood, leather and molasses, firkin yum!!! Thick, treacly, syrupy body. So rich, so sweet, so bitter, so balanced from first cold sip to last warm one. Huge smoky, charred wood, burnt sugar and molasses presence just fills the mouth so well with a viscosity of thick silken fluid. Hints of rich chocolate mudcake, fresh kilned bitter cacao beans, peaty wood, ash, vanilla beans, cherry khoulis, kecap manis and heavily aged port join the volley of flavour pronouncing wicked vibes on my taste buds. The alcohol well masked, subdued but would be a welcome addition to it’s substantial complexity. Velvety, smooth and oh so long finish leaves the mouth reeling. Just lasts and lasts, I loved it. A pint bottle was way more than adequate this would suit being sold in nip glasses. A dessert beer for its sweetness, a winter beer for its complexity and a night cap beer for its impact, Grand!!! (50cL, no date stamp, bought back in 2008 from the Beer Store Morley)

hawthorne00 (2439) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - DEC 15, 2010
Bottle 500ml. Very dark brown with a tan head. Aroma of dates, treacle, coffee. Taste is very sweet with dark sugars, dried and stewed fruits, soy sauce, sweet shop spices. Touches of Oloroso sherry are fine and are clearly part of the character of the beer. A little grassy bitterness struggles largely in vain against the sweetness. Pushing it on the sweetness for me, but worth it for the deep malt flavours.

BeerChaser0078 (909) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - DEC 10, 2010
Bottle. Very dark ruby pour, almost black, with a fluffy tan head that lasts a little while. Aroma is sweet and malty with notes of milk chocolate, toffee, molasses, dark fruit, and vanilla. Flavour is very similar to aroma with additional notes of honey, coffee and some noticeable alcohol. Mouthfeel is light for the style, almost watery, with moderate carbonation and a lingering roasty, sweet finish with very little bitterness. Quite a good porter if a little two-dimensional, easy to drink but a little too sweet to be sessionable.

dnoaksson (700) - , SWEDEN - DEC 4, 2010
En ganska traditionell porter med en porlande syrlighet som ger ölet en frisk och fruktig kvalitet. Lockar inte fram några wow-känslor, men ger ändå god ränta på tiden man investerar.
