3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
pours almost black with garnet highlights and a huge tan head which lingers. Interesting aroma ... with alcohol and some roast coming thru when cool, replaced with raisins, figs some higher alcohols like a port. Flows very lightly on the tongue. Sweet, alcohol warmth, some fleeting dry fruits some dark malt complexity, with a nice soft long dry finish balanced by the hop bitterness. While on the lower end of the scale of strength a very good Baltic porter. Definitely enjoyable on a rainy California night. For a beer of this strength a little age will help heighten the malt complexity and raisiny character

Bottle. Pour was dark brown, little head. Very sweet, tons of malts and slightly dark fruits. This is almost like drinking a flat can of soda.

Nice malt smell; dark black-brown as you would expect in a Porter; the feel is a bit thinner than I would have expected; nice malt/coffee taste but with slightly too much bitterness in the aftertaste

Bottle to porter glass. Aroma is herbal and like some kind of green plant. Taste is mostly roasted malt with hop balance. Finish is decent. Good carbonation. Very different from European and American porters.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle-Memphis. Ink Black collor with shallow dark tan head. Full malt flavor but somehow finishes crisp. Subtle but apparent hop aroma and a bitterness that balances the malt perfectly!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Black, tiny brown head. Sweetish aroma, slightly chocolatey. Smooth flavor, a little sweet for a porter. Slightly roasted notes towards the end. A little dryness in the finish. Felt a bit light. All in all, easy to drink.

UPDATED: DEC 29, 2007 Bottle in Berlin.One of the better porters I had in my life, really dark and beautiful black color, standard malty, caramel and chocolate flavors. I was quite surprised how easy it was to drink this beer, considering the style and the alcohol level.Great!

Pours a deep opaque brown, medium sized head. Aroma is toasted malts, with a bit of sweetness. Taste is burned malts, with a big sweet aftertaste. Definitely an after dinner beer.

This beer was pretty bad. I couldn’t finish it. While it looks great, brown colour with tan head, it tastes quite awful. It has a very sweet flavor. It has quite bad aftertaste as well.
