fletchfighters (1190) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 14, 2012
A-- Poured more dark brown than black. Settled Black but very opaque. Lots of reddish brown tints to this. Brown sugar colored head, settled at one finger, good head retention and no visible carbonation once all settled down. Pour showed medium carbonation. S-- Sweet chocolate, anise, and a boozy nose. Coffee is very faint and overpowered by the anise smell. Very anise and alcohol forward. T-- Very sweet and alcohol forward taste. Sweet chocolate, anise (lots of it) and a lot of booze. Just a faint bit of coffee in this. M-- Malts decide to show up in the mouth, as well as the coffee. Just a bit of a bitter coffee taste. Really thin for the smell. Very aggressive front (chocolate, booze, and anise) but weak back (coffee and roasted malt). Medium carbonation but needs a bit less. D-- Sipper. Big time sipper.

Salmoniform (1181) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - DEC 15, 2013
Poured from bottle to glass. Jet black with an off-white head that dissipated quickly to a thin ring arond the glass. Aroma is huge malts, roasty, sweet, nutty, bready, stone fruits, raisins, cola, yeast esthers. Full body and light carbonation provides for a great mouthfeel. Very sweet with a faint CO2 sharpness and an esthery finish with faint hop elements and slight ethanol. Overall, this is a really good super malt-forward imperial porter but almost bordering cloyingly sweet.

bvc (1178) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - DEC 15, 2009
500ml capped from M&V that has a PO.02.06.2/2 stamp on the back label. Looks fantastic in the glass. Deep dark cola brown with nice think light tan head. Right away the nose permeates the room with roasty carob malt, brown sugar, cola, raisins, and fig newtons. Nice creamy carbonated body with the right amount of viscosity for a Baltic in my opinion. Taste has most of what I got in the nose, but nothing really assertive and maybe just a bit bland and too much sweet bready malt going on. I would have liked to have more layers in the flavor of this one. Well made and very drinkable for sure.

martin00sr (1170) - Sřnderborg, DENMARK - APR 2, 2014
Dark brown, almost black. Small tan head. Aroma is dark malty and fruity. Lovely soft mouthfeel, nice bitterness, some chocolate, dark cherries. Alcohol in nice, long aftertaste.

Boliv (1150) - 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.

jonnyguns (1096) - AUSTRALIA - JAN 18, 2013
Bottle. Pours a pitch black with tanned head. Aromas of roasted chocolate, malts and molasses. Taste is heavy on the chewy maltiness and caramel with some chocolate. Really chewy! Better than I expected. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ComradeK (1060) - The Vale of Dundas, AUSTRALIA - JAN 5, 2013
500ml bottle. Pours an opaque black, with a medium-sized beige head, which fades rapidly and leaves no lacing. The aroma has some dark chocolate, but also cold coffee grounds and a slightly musty smell; on the whole it is not great. A flash of bitter cocoa up front is soon overcome, weirdly, by banana. This is followed by cold coffee in the mid-palate leading into a very overtly alcoholic finish. This is not a great beer. Both the aroma and flavour have some unpleasant and jarring notes, and it tastes every bit of 8% ABV, so it feels both unbalanced and unsubtle.

bluebetty (1019) - AUSTRALIA - OCT 15, 2009
Bottle. Pours black with nice tan head. Super sweet aromas of caramel & toffee. Also a little alcohol. Flavours are very sweet once again with heaps of caramel, toffee and treacle. Some alcohol to the finish. Mouthfeel is very syrupy,

PapaSkeetSkeet (983) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - NOV 19, 2011
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!
