Gromit (479) - Port Orchard, Washington, USA - JAN 27, 2005
Interesting... Pours black with a nice tan head that left quite a bit of lace. The aroma is odd; definate coffee and molasses, but thereís an odd alcohol scent there as well, as in, not just a typical one. Flavor definately improves as it warms. Cold it had some odd stuff going on, but as it warmed it smoothed out. Coffee, chocolate caramel, toffee, dark fruits... Palate is thicker than most Porters and perfectly carbonated. Overall, itís good and worth seeking out.

baobubba (454) - Starkville, Mississippi, USA - JAN 15, 2005
Dark brown with a fairly tall white head. Really sticky aroma; lots of caramel aromas strongly backed by roasted malts with a tinge of sourness on the nose. Quite sweet with a roasted finish. Good brew and relatively inexpensive.

This is an OK porter that looks and smells really good when you pour it but, but the taste is a bit of a disappointment. its on the thin side and not full bodied. you could do a lot worse, but also alot better

Holy crap! This is the best bargain ever. Cheap as nuts, tastes good and packs a punch. I assure you this stuff will replace the 40 oz as the favorite beverage of tramps and drifters once word gets out. It will make itís way into my regular rotation as well. No more forties for little Frank. Oh no. Iím a $1.29/.5L of Black Boss Porter man, yes I am.

Pours black like a boss. Held to the light, you can see itís actually dark brown like a boss. Nose is sweet and rich with a boss load of coffee. Palate it is slightly unbosslike in that it is somewhat but at least not fizzy. A bit of bossy sweetness, coffee and maybe some non-dairy creamer round things out. Lord, I do not want to know what went into making this stuff but it sure tastes alright aside from a dusty-bottle-on-a-shelf-in-a-Polish-liquor-store twang.

And for the record, this is one of the sweetest bottles ever. Something about it just says, "Drink me. I will fuck you up."

IndianaRed (3838) - Boise, Idaho, USA - NOV 24, 2004
Bottle Pours a dark but not opaque brown with a foamy light tan head and spotty lacing. Aroma is terrific. Chocolatey and dark roasted wioth some licorice and a touch of smoke. Flaovors, are of cocolate, brown sugar, caramel, and maybe a touch of maple syrup. Feel was a bit thinner than I was hoping and there was a slight bitter smokey trailer. Quite good! Thanks to Buck Dich for sharing this one.

Sham (1844) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 24, 2004
Dark brown, near black with a tannish head and spotty lacing. I love baltic porters. The caramel comes out oh so sweetly. Raisins and anise. Caramel is out moreso than in the aroma. Roasty. The licorice comes through, but is not overbearing. Bitter hops. Raisins again. Thick and complex. Very nice finish of caramel and licorice. Nice. Thanks goes to the BŁckster for toting this back from Seattle.

BŁckDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - NOV 24, 2004
Dark black, ruby hue, very light head. Nose of creamy roast, molasses & corn syrup, light licorice & sweet faint dark malts, like a milkyway @ Starbucks. Tastes sweet & roast, splenda sweetened iced coffee. Finishes smooth though for the alcohol. Watery carob?

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 Iíd never guess this stuff is 9.4% I wasnít expecting much from this stuff, since I got 3 pint bottles for $5 but itís not a bad deal at all. I could easily get used to this stuff. My favorite beer from Poland.

notalush (5732) - 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 itís been lagered, which doesnít 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.
