Metalhead (627) - Lake Zurich, Illinois, USA - AUG 2, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 26, 2004 Dark cola color,pretty dense tan head. Nose is sweet and chocolate. Taste is sweet,sticky,chocolate with a hint of malt. The finish was a tad dryish cold but disappeared as it warmed. Not sure why this is called a porter. Sure tastes like a chocolate stout to me. Good dessert beer. Fairly filling. The hi octane of this beer is well masked.

Jeppe (2631) - Ølbutikken, DENMARK - JUN 9, 2004
Pours a foamy tan head on a dark brown body - the head disappears after a while. Quite odd aroma of fruit, caramel and honey (I get association to a mead...). Flavor is very sweet and fruity and the roasted malt doesn’t show until the end. Some bitter hops in the finish as well. Hides the alcohol very well. A very different porter and I’m a little confused if I really like it or not.

larsniclas (5522) - Billdal, SWEDEN - FEB 14, 2004
Bottled. Dark brown/black. Chocolate and some coffee in the aroma. Sweet, too sweet, with sugary moutgfeel. A bit burnt chocolate-flavour with a nutty bitterness.

madsberg (10111) - Søborg, DENMARK - JAN 29, 2004
Bottled: Dark ruby red coloured. Thin chocolatish head. Malts, fruit and chocolate in the nose. Coffee, fruits and a very dominant sweetness in the flavour. Very light roasted. Alcahol is well hidden. As a Baltic Porter this is way too sweet for me. Totally lacs the sharp roasted malt flavour, that I seek in these beers.

Ungstrup (29022) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 15, 2004
A dark amber beer with a fine beige head though disappearing. The aroma is sweet with notes of caramel and straw. The flavor is sweet too with notes of cinnamon, caramel - to end on a slight sour note. It is way too sweet for a Porter - even though it holds 9.4% ABV. Thanks to Per (omhper) for trading this with me.

Bov (9245) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JAN 12, 2004
very dark brown colour, chaotic foam with big bubbles, aroma of dark chocolate and candy sugar, very sweet, robust maltiness and a sugary finish

Dark amber color. Light malt, malt and vegetables aroma. Sweet; caramel, nuts. Average, for the common drinker. Thanks Jens (Ungstrup) for this bottle.

Radek Kliber (6368) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - JAN 6, 2004
Dark brown, woody brown in look. Deep, lovely roast. Not o dark, hints of chocolate with walnut. Some plum. Sweet front followed with good roast feel. Superb Baltic only is it was a bit less sweet. I do wonder how Zywiec make 9 % porter and does avoid such sugary filling.

Oakes (12167) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 1, 2004
Dark burgundy brown. Rich malt aroma w/ almond cake, light molasses, raisin, plum, dark chocolate, peach. Sweet, silky malt flavours, vietnamese coffee, fruity (apricot, orange) notes. Quite sweet and sugary. Needs a bit more hop for balance, and maybe to be more thoroughly fermented, but a good example of the style nonetheless.
