DrunkenWeasel (224) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 24, 2005
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.

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.

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.

metalhead0043 (207) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUL 27, 2013
500ml bottle for $3. A hidden little gem in the import section at my local beer store. Pours black with a slight amber hue to it. Head is sort of a creamy off white or khaki color. Smells like chocolate, malt and is slightly fruity. The alcohol can be detected a little bit in the aroma as well. Taste is sweet with some chocolate, fruit and alcohol flavors present. At 9.4% that can be expected. Does not mask the alcohol perfectly but it is hardly offensive. The body is a little thinner than I prefer but not light. Overall this is a really good porter that I recommend.

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.

Feinschmecker (202) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 15, 2007
Bottle. Dark brown color with a sweet molasses malty aroma. Flavor is one dimensional and too sweet. It seems the sweetness is there to make up for the lack of complexity. I do have to admit that the alcohol is not noticeable. I am not to into this style.

Angelmonster (185) - Colorado, USA - DEC 6, 2010
Pours a big finger of beige head. Body is a very dark brown with red highlights. Head retention was decent and lacing was minimal. Predominate smell is of dark fruits. Plums, figs, raisins and prunes. Caramel and roasted malts are also present. There is also a lingering hint of smokiness similar to a scotch ale at the end. Hops are not present at all and alcohol is very faint. Taste is pretty sweet, almost syrupy. Caramel, dulce de leche, smoky burnt malts are the first flavors that come through. Dried fruits like fig, prune, and plum are there as foretold in the smell. Some earthy hops are very faint in the background and for 9 percent abv, alcohol is well hidden. Palate is medium bodied, slightly syrupy. Carbonation levels are good but head doesnt contribute much to the feel. For such a strong dark ale it wasnt as heavy as some baltic porters, which has its pros and cons. Overall a good beer. Drinkability was very good, especially for such a strong beer. Not too heavy or filling, this beer can potentially become dangerous. Good flavors and reasonably priced, would definitely buy this one again

Dark beer with a thick and creamy head. Vanilla aroma. Odd taste and very creamy mouth feel. Canít quite put my finger on this one but it isnít brilliant.
