Watery black pour and receding tan head. Aroma of sweet bread or cookies, caramel, brown sugar. Maybe even bubble gum somewhere in there. Flavor doesnít quite live up to the aroma. Roasted malt, brown sugar, lightly bitter. A bit of lacing. Reminds me of a Lion Stout. Big alcohol for a great price from an under-celebrated country. Thumbs up for that.

For the price this is a great beer. This is a heavy hitter at 9.4%. Upon sipping this magnificent porter I was astonished by how well the alcohol was hidden. I would have guessed that this beer is around 6% if not for the label clearly stating the ABV. As others have stated, this beer does have a red hue to it. It looks very promising sitting in my tulip glass. The taste is a bit sweet for my liking but very palatable at the same time. This is a porter all beer geeks should try at least once. Keep in mind that I am rating this not only based on overall enjoyment but price.

Pours deep brown with a small white head. Smells strongly of roasted malts and licorice. Very strong taste of licorice in beer that covers up almost everything else, bitter aftertaste comes in afterwards.

It has a roasted malt smell with hints of coffee and syrup. The head is rather think with a brown color. It is birch beer colored. The taste is a little strong on the syrupy side, but it has a good taste.

Black boss is an incredible value and worth picking it up and keeping one or two on hand. The taste has some great roast malt character and a big dose of vanilla. The nose is toasted malt and lite oak/vanilla tones.

UPDATED: APR 25, 2007 Bottle- strong sweet nose. Strong sweet malty flavor. Develops increased character as temperature increases. Itís over the top sweetness...yeah...pretty much... Food pairing:Outstanding with bar-b-que. )

lagomswedish (213) - UmeŚ, SWEDEN - FEB 5, 2007
Bottle from Systembolaget. Pours a dark brown with reasonable tan head that fades quickly. No stand-out aromas, but low levels of bitter chocolate and sweet fruit. I also got some banana (paw paw?). Itís way to sweet for me, with sickly sweet fruit, treacle and vanilla dominating an otherwise quite watery beer, which tastes flat and filtered. Minimal bitterness as expected while the alcohol dissappears in the sweetness. Overpoweringly sugary for me, making it all a bit of an effort to finish the glass.

MarinaMarket (209) - POULSBO, Washington, USA - OCT 24, 2011
Aroma from the neck is a malt loverís dream come true! Caramel, alcohol notes, sugary goodness. Pours very dark amber and with some coaxing, a thin tan head. Huge aroma of malts and dark fruit, cherry, plum, and carmelized sugars. The head dissipates fairly quickly but leaves a nice set of legs clinging to the glass. Although very dark in the glass, a flashlight reveals this beer is essentially red. Wicked red. Flavors of toasted grain, a little smoke, malts, and virtually zero hop. The flavor is much more subdued than the aroma IMO. Body is medium, slightly viscous, and tart on the finish. I also get some notes of sherry. tasted @ 55F from the 330ml bottle.

Pours dark, dark brown. Aroma was syrupy and a bit of chocolate. I like the flavor, even though Iíve only had this type a few times now. Medium carbonation, oily, full mouthfeel. The 9.4% is hidden well. At 2.75 for a 16.9 oz. bottle, it is a great value. In fact, in terms of $ per alcohol-oz., this is the top beer I have found.

mesperon (205) - Hillsdale, New Jersey, USA - FEB 12, 2009
Almost opaque black, copper hues on edges, with thick tan head. Sweet on the nose with roasted coffee and dark chocolate. Thick chewy mouthfeel. Sweet and light at first, then roasted malt hits with a coffe bitterness that is obvious but very mellow and understated. A little sharpness of coffee leaves a nice aftertaste on the whole of the tongue. 9.4% is very well hidden. What a great porter.
