Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - NOV 10, 2004
Light black color with a dense tan head. Aromas of black licorice and burnt roasted coffee. Taste has the licorice right up front with some chocolate and vanilla. Body is creamy and smooth and I’d never guess this stuff is 9.4% I wasn’t expecting much from this stuff, since I got 3 pint bottles for $5 but it’s not a bad deal at all. I could easily get used to this stuff. My favorite beer from Poland.

notalush (5707) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 8, 2004
Semi-transparent brown in color - moderate lacing - nose and flavor are dominated by brown sugar and molassas - flavor also produces notes of over-sweetened, black coffee and a touch of chocolate - this tastes as if it’s been lagered, which doesn’t really have to be a bad thing, I guess - pretty flavorful, but a bit thin for the style - worth a try.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 19, 2004
Black opaque colored, little beige head vanished fastly. Very sweet chocolate aroma with notes of apple and alcohol. Full bodied porter, alcohol comes up very mildly in the end. Sweet chocolate and caramel flavor make taste to be very rich, chocolate lasts long. Ending is soft and round with mild alcohol, good porter. Leaves nice lace in glass.

bark (255) - Linköping, SWEDEN - OCT 2, 2004
Yes, colour is black. When you look closely against a bulb, you can see that the liquid really is deep, deep brown-red and clear. The brownish foam is made of big bubbles, and it dissolves quickly into a thin, white skin. The smell is quite complex; the dominant part is dark roasted coffee. There are also notes of yeast, dark chocolate, vanilla, rye bread and liquorice. The carbon dioxide is very, very gentle. The brew almost got a stale mouthfeel. The taste is at first very sweet and without any traces of bitterness or alcohol (surprising considering the high abv). The taste is overall quite velvety; the strongest taste is a roasted – burned taste, but there are also some hints of dark bread, raisins and gravy. The aftertastes got a fiery taste of alcohol, but there were also a blend of French roasted coffee, sweet liquorice, rye bread and boiled ham. The label says that this beer is made in collaboration between Boss Brewery in Poland and “Ölverket”, “the Beer Department” in Sweden. An organisation or company or whatever that I never before have heard about, although I can agree with their slogan, something like “drink easy – drink good”

JPDIPSO (5519) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 28, 2004
Dark brown color with hints of ruby through the light. Small stable dense head of mocha bubbles. Initial silage aromas are driven off quickly by light molasses, and a dark rum soaked fruit cake and hint of coffee. Corn sugar sweetened black coffee flavors. Alcohol is really only noticed in the exhale and then again about 3/4 of the wat through as you stomach starts to warm and head begins to swim. Not a lot of malt intensity in this one. An interesting rendition.

Bottled as Black Boss Porter: Black with ruby hints, huge tan head. Rubbery chocolate nose. Red licorice whip and chocolate taste, gets coffee notes as it warms.

Dark. Thick tan head. Some roasted, wood, slight plastic bag smell. Warms up to present a more coffee, bitter flavor. Kinda thick.

DYCSoccer17 (3612) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 28, 2004
Mildly fruity vinous aroma with notes of chocolate malts. Slightly hazy garnet mahogany with a small tan head. Wow--sweet chocolate in this one. Like chocolate syrup. Hints of smoke and some mild bitterness. Slight alcohol burn. One dimensional, but very tasty!

Metalhead (643) - 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.
