3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Black/brown, slightly transparent with a limited head, that leaves a nice lace. The aroma has notes of roasted malt and sweet licorice. The flavour is sweetish with brief sweet coffee notes, then more roasted malt, licorice and the sweet coffee returns in the rather long finish. A bit too sweet for me.... 1871

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

Sold as Czarny Boss Porter in Ermelo. Deep dark brown color, almost opague. Coffee aroma with a touch of caramel. Just below medium bodied. Roasted malt, coffee, molasses, hints of apple. Likeable but somewhat grainy and sweet. No first class quality.

500 mL bottle from jjpm74. Pours very near opaque with a patchy tan head. Aroma is sweet caramel malt (cookie, meal), milk chocolate and faint floral hops with a vinous nose. Medium sweet chocolate malt and caramel flavor, medium to low bitterness and acidity, smooth malt finish. Dark bodied and smooth palate.

500ml bottle - shared by Mark&Sarah - thanks!
Date and raisin aroma. Rich roast, dry burnt corners. Piles of raisin in the taste. finish has loads of grains as well as the roast. Good one. A touch heavy though.

4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle... This beer rocks!... Clear ruby lager with a mid-sized, frothy, khaki head. The aroma is of buttery, chocolate popcorn. Port-like flavor with big notes of coconut and dark fruit; lesser notes of chocolate. Leans just a hair on the sweet side of balance. Medium-bodied and watery with restrained carbonation. Sweet finish. Thanks to degarth for sharing!

Bottle. Poured a dark brown with a red tint to it and a smaller sized off white head. Aromas of roast, chocolate, lactose and a strong nuttiness to it. I’ll have to take Eric’s word for it about his Grandmother’s Nuts (maybe it was his Grandpa). Tastes of roast, light cocoa, and a lighter nuttiness to it. Thinner body.
