Theis (13801) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 16, 2007
Bottle (Lars). Dark brown (almost black) - offwhite head. Raisins, plums, coffee, licorice, brown sugar, butter. It could have been very good.

MiP (13798) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAR 15, 2006
Bottle. Sweet liquorice aroma. Almost black colour. Very small head. Quite sweet flavour, a lot of liquorice here too. Low bitterness. Maybe a bit too sweet, but quite nice.

TBone (12998) - Pori, FINLAND - JUN 12, 2005
Bottled (BB 10/2005)
Very dark ruby, creamy expresso head. Burnt malt aroma, slightly sugary - a bit similar to Zywiec Porter. Medium-bodied. Cold coffee, salted licorice powder. Soft palate - hides alcohol very well (actually some kick from alcohol would do good), good malty base but hop profile is weak. Far from complex and interesting Zywiec.

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 15/20
Oakes (12789) - 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.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 12/20
bu11zeye (11971) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - JAN 6, 2006
(Bottle) Pours a deep mahogany body with a moderate tan head. Aroma of raisins, dustiness, and alcohol. Flavor of malt and dark fruits. A bit thin of a body for a baltic porter.

3.4
   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 14/20
argo0 (11642) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 25, 2006
(50cl bottle) Healthy tan head atop clear red-black body. Aroma is medium sweet, cherry, raisin, coffee, caramel, light anise. Taste is moderately sweet, coffee, chocolate, raisin/plum, some caramel, almond, light anise. Alcohol warming. Creamy yet watery medium-full body, surprisingly drinkable.

2.7
   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 9/20
brokensail (11599) - Orange County, California, USA - APR 21, 2013
Black pour with a khaki head. Smells like burnt grains and popcorn. Acidic coffee, chocolate, and burnt sugar. Maybe a bit of bile. Bread and tons of overly roasted malt. The flavor is bitter, burnt, and grainy. Burnt popcorn, licorice, chocolate, and acidic coffee.

2.9
   AROMA 4/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 13/20
bhensonb (11526) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 10, 2007
Aroma of toasted dark malt. Nearly opaque dark brown color with a tan head that is substantial. A bit thin in body. Starts with coffee, followed by toffee. Definite toffee candy sweet. The finish is not dry, and the toffee flavor persists. Interesting, but something of a one note. Not that there might not be hidden complexity, just not obvious to me.

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 5/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 5/5   OVERALL 16/20
rlgk (11486) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 4, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 22, 2005 Bottle, stored for about 10 months. Dark amber, beautiful head. Smotth malty aroma with toffee, milk and chocolate. Just as malty flavor, and with a wonderful body. This beer changed alot to the better while being stored...

gunnfryd (11208) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 4, 2006
