Bottle: Clear, ruby-amber coloured, almost no head; quite solid sweet fruity nose (dried berries and molasses included); robust sweet flavour with a very delicate bitterness, full bodied - what else; increasing sweetness in the caramelly finish, followed by a light touch of balsamico and a little bitterness in the aftertaste. Way too sweet......

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Beers of Europe, consumed 20-12-09 Pours black with a wonderful beige head standing proudly on top. The aroma is a little bitter toffee with roasted notes and coffee also showing. Really tasty porter with nice tangy edge. The coffee also shows in the mouth, there is a pleasant warmth from the alcohol and a light bitterness ripples across the tongue. Some dark sugars also show to complete matters, its a nice beer. A7 A5 F7 P4 Ov14 3.7

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle, 8.5%. Vinous and dusty aroma. Clear very dark brown colour. Big stable bubbly light brown head. The flavour has some sweet liquorice at first. Turns rather creamy and finishes a tad more roasted. This is one of the few beer styles where I can live with a little oxidation, but this is enough.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: NOV 11, 2009 Bottle under the "Czarny Boss" label. I can tell right away that this is going to be a "controversial" beer. Poured into a snifter: very black. with very thin off-white head. A very pruny beer. Prune is heavy in the nose and taste and liquorish notes too. Caramel malts and a little toffee in there. Smoky and finishes not that bitter.
Iím a fan, but Iím weird and I like prune. This beer isnít for everyone.
