Strong dark beer of the porter famili, characterised by a full taste and rich aroma. Perfect with gourmet desserts, and especially dark chocolate. 18.1 P

Bottle. It pours a clear, dark brown body with a reddish hue. It has a finger-thick beige head that leaves lacings. The aroma has a touch of diacetyl, with a good dash of coffee and dark chocolate. Slightly nutty, with hints of dried fruits, quite roasted. In the far back, a whiff of dms hides, but overall, a really pleasant aroma. It’s full-bodied, smooth and creamy in the mouth, with an appropriated level of carbonation. Some hoppy bitterness lingers, slowly wiping away the initial flavors of roasted malts, dried fruit, some nuts and chocolate. The alcohol is fairly detectable, that’s probably good, even though I like some to be found in the stronger beers. The low levels makes it a dangerously drinkable beer though, but maybe a bit on the sweet side. Overall; definately a beer to drink more of. 100305

The beer is almost black with a creamy tan head. Very nice sweetness with some mild roast, dark fruit, cola, and a bit of grain. The sweetness is excellent almost doppelbock-like. A bit of cola, some dark fruit, and like cocoa powder. Just a hint of bitterness to go with bread and toffee.

Oakes (15806) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 5, 2010
Dark brown. Decent head. Chewy aroma with molasses and other dark sugars. Very sweet, with some sugary notes, light raisin accent. Soft, interesting beer with good character.

bhensonb (14178) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 23, 2009
Bottle from Malt & Vine. Pours dark brown/black, but it has ruby notes when viewed against light. Three-finger foamy tan head. Aroma of really darkly roasted malt with perhaps anise and/or chocolate. The nose is a little complicated. Medium plus body with creamy carbonation. Flavor is smooth dark roasted malt. It is sweet. Nutty. Dark fruit. Cough syrup. Chocolate and dates or figs. Lots going on. Finishes dark, rather syrupy and sweet. Nice winter drink.

UPDATED: DEC 2, 2015 500ml bottle (Małe Piwo, Warsaw) - Shared with SRPOL - thanks! (6:5:6:4:13=3.4)
Soft sweet dark roast aroma. This is so much like Saku Porter from the olden days it’s not true. Absolutely classic Baltic porter. Lovely full roast, a bit sweet, and smooth in the palate. Not quite as much character as the previous two (Komes and Kormoran), but still great - really looks the part in particular.
Rerate: 500ml bottle (?, Poland) (6:5:6+:4:14=3.5+)
Sweet and rich, smooth, and full. Nice roast. Again, does remind me of the old Saku Porters. Dear Carlsberg, please drink one of these, and then get whichever facility brews your now-pathetic porter to do something like this. Maybe a bit too sweet, but truly a delicious baltic porter, great for the end of an evening or session.
500ml bottle - thanks ElviraS! (6:4:6:3:13=3.2)
Sweet. Caramelly, treacly. A bit yeasty, marmitey. A little slick and heavy for a 7.2% beer, but at least not boozy.

imdownthepub (13418) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 26, 2009
Bottled, 500ml at The Katedra Pub, Krakow. Black with tan head. Thick treacle tarry beer enjoyed in a distinctly odd pub, there is coffee, roasty notes with chocolate bitterness, alcohol and liquorice. Champagne Supernova by Oasis was being played and it seemed entirely in keeping, this seemed like a Supernova and took me ages to get through.
