Not a bad porter, maybe a little too thick. Pours black with a light tan head that clings to the side before disipating. Aroma is that of dark malt and a hint of alcohol. taste is all dark malt and alcohol. Coffee overtones. Aftertaste lingers and is nice.

See through dark caramal brown with thin bubbly head. Aroma is sweet chocolate. Flavor is chocolate, sweet cocoa. Palate is smooth.

Veer (362) - Landskrona, SWEDEN - SEP 28, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 8, 2005 Cherry black, extremely small yellowish white head. Smells of raisins, alcohol, malt and smoke. Is this raisin-ale? Extremely sweet, some bitterness. Quite good. Simple, fresh and slimy.

Black like the name teills you. Chocolate and coffee (as expected). Some acidity but more than that I wouold say sweetness. The alcohol comes through but never too much. The only real downside is that it felt a little bit thin.

spilledpint (352) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JAN 30, 2011
16.9 oz. bottle from Woodman’s Madison Ar: Cola-like aroma with some dark chocolate. Different for a porter, but pleasant. Ap: Pours a dark brown-red with a 1" light cinnamon head. Very light for a porter. A bit of lace. T: Cola and a bit of smoky wood up front. The finish is chocolatey. No alcohol burn. P: Medium body with soft carbonation. O: Different for a porter, but enjoyable.

500ml. color is dark brown black with ruby highlights. milk chocolate on the the nose with a mild lactic aroma, by that i mean a slight sourness is detected. sweet lightly roasted malt is also present. body is thinner than i anticipated but it does feel round on the tongue. the intermingling of chocolate and vanilla malt sweetness and mild sourness give it an almost barrel aged finish. a roasty malt flavor and mild but noticeable bitterness provide a fine conclusion. high alcohol goes unnoticed. reminds me more of a dopplebock but i see some porter elements to this brew.

Gurst (338) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - MAR 16, 2008
Deep brown color, slight head. Roasty toasty grain and a hint of pitted fruit. Tastes a lot like porridge, but delicious porridge. Hides the alcohol well.

NicerInPerson (337) - North of Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - DEC 30, 2007
The aroma was sweet fruity caramel coupled to a roasted and smokey character which housed chocolate and a moderate acidity. The aroma was fruity with some dark fruits of raisins and prunes. The beer poured into the glass crystal clear blackish brown with a ruby highlight and a short lived tannish head which traced a bit at the glass. The flavor was nicely smooth with chocolate and a bit of espresso coffee roast. The flavor was malty and smooth and never harsh or acidic on the palate. The dark fruits were presence, once again raisins and prunes. The finish ended fruity and dry with a lasting nice presence of chocolate and light roast into the aftertaste. The body was just above medium with a fairly low level of carbonation but a smoothness on the palate. A really nice Baltic with only a smidge of warming alcohol post consumption. 16.9 ounce bottle.

baggio (333) - norrtälje, SWEDEN - AUG 17, 2008
Bottle@home Apperance: Very black with a nice brown lace. Beautiful. Aroma: Raisins, Molasses, Bitter chocolate, Ripe fruit. Flavor: Espresso, Ripe fruit, Chocolate, Roasted grain, Caramel. Palate: Very smooth and quite thin liquid makes this an easy drink. Very little carbonation. This brew is just dangerously drinkable for a 9.4% ABV porter. It’s been sitting in my beerpantry for about a year and it has improved quite a bit. It feels alot smoother now. I could easily have a few of these in one evening. Recommended!
