Dark-chocolate brown with a giant cappuccino head. Oh, if only there were as many slang terms for parts of beer as there are for parts of the human body, then all my reviews would sound quite the same! Flavor is saucy mole, sweet chocolate caramel syrup. Aroma is rich and fills the nostrils. Medium body. Light touch of spiced hop bitterness, like a dab of whipped cream. Smooth. Great BP!

Drake (9251) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - NOV 18, 2011
500 mL bottle from Total Wine West Richmond, VA. Pours a dark brown color with a medium tan head. Good head retention. Aroma of roasted malts, raisins, chocolate, earthy notes. The taste is cherries, raisins, chocolate, roasted malts, anise and a faint hoppy finish. Medium-full bodied, soft carbonation and a faint bit of booze. Nice.

Reid (1968) - Salem, Oregon, USA - NOV 3, 2011
UPDATED: FEB 7, 2012 Euro style 500ml bottle from "Lifesource", S.Salem. $2.45 Very very classy bottle presentation. Deep deep black beer with a very nice frothy,bubbly tan head. Fine dark,deep dank coffee,toast,dark chocolate,fig aroams assault the nose,pickin up some cream, and slight funk..very nice. Sweet side of Baltic Porter here..sweet with creamy undertones and figs/date fruitiness,bitter coffee after taste. Ok on the tongue..slightly less than expected but that enhances drinkability. Good beer for a cheap price..thinking this would be an excellent Christmas dinner dessert beer.

Poured from the bottle. Right away I know this is not a regular porter. The aroma is weak even though this is an etched glass. Flavor is huge though and delicious. Dark chocolate, and coffee. Wow so delicious! Palate is thin and watery but finishes long and oily. This beer poured black with no head despite the etched glass. Overall this is delicious despite what it smells like.

mkel07 (3817) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - OCT 13, 2011
500ml bottle. Big thick coffee colour with a cloud of billowing foam that sits atop an oil black beer that looks strong and complex. Aromas of coffee, chocolate and malt invite you in. The flavour is thick, sweet and almost medicinal and sits in your mouth for a long time after the beer is gone.

auerbrau (3180) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - SEP 6, 2011
500mL Bottle, purchased from Westmere Beverage Center - Albany, NY. Camping backlog from notes. I was excited to score this and the Black Boss Porter for $2.50 each from Westemere. Baltic Porters for good prices. Unfortunately, this one was heavily oxidized, soft, and one-dimensional. Little dark porter character and lot of estery sweetness.

crossovert (8174) - Illinois, USA - AUG 17, 2011
500ml bottle. PO 3/5. A gusher. It pours a dark black with ruby on the edges and a foamy tan head. The smell is basically chocolate milk with some dark fruit. The flavor continues this flavor. I think this is a beer that would appeal to a large audience. It is mildly roasty and mostly just like a really decadent chocolate dessert or cake.

coldbrewky (1461) - Hippetown East, New York, USA - JUL 28, 2011
Finally, an imperial porter from Poland that does not smack of a pint of hard homemade hooch added to the secondary fermenting vessel. Silky smooth and packed full of malt flavor. Surprising how easily this was consumed. 8% was present but not unpleasant. Small graham cracker nose.

Palme (3606) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 18, 2011
0.5l bottle that pours a deep deep brown body with a small reddish hue and a big chocolate-tanned dense head. Aroma is light sweet and roasted with notes of thin chocolate and red caramel. Soft carbonation, quite full-bodied and it has a thick and oily mouthfeeling. Tasted quite nice. Light sweet, mild roasted, some chocolate and some licorice. Ends really caramel- and chocolate-sweet . Good porter!

Quack-Duck (8299) - Down South, GERMANY - JUN 9, 2011
bottle, kindly donated by Schroppfy - Thank you! Deep black colour, large and creamy beige head. Promising aroma of chocolate, cocoa powder and dark fruits. Full-bodied, intensiovely malty with loads and loads of bitter chocolate, cocoa powder, shy hints of caramel, nuts and raisins. Not sweet, yet very malty. Perfectly balanced, a delight!
