A very smooth porter. I enjoyed it very much. The taste isnít overwhelming, and it has a hint of molasses. Very sweet, highly recommended.

Didnít care for this at all. Odd flavor, strange finish. Iím chalking up to just not getting the Baltic porter style.

It pours jet black intimidation, goes down like molasses, hitís you with a wicked 9.4 percent, then demands you thank it. Thank you Black Boss, may I have another?

pours with a head which quickly dissipates into a nice lace. smells bready with a touch of cocoa and sweetness. the 9.4 % alcohol is well hidden, heavy malt flavors are well pronounced. for $1.99/.5L bottle this is an excellent buy, and an outstanding example of baltic porter

Whoa! Nice and dark. Smoky taste. Very palatable for a 9.5% beer. A top-five lifetime beer for Mac; not quite there for me, but very good.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Okey dokey, so the P00tz procured this bottle for a number of reasons and being a fan of all things "black" and "boss" he thought it impossible not to enjoy this beer. Especially when one takes into account that it claims to be both "black" and "boss" whilst containing 9.5% alcohol.* So here P00tz is with this beer claiming to deliver all that P00tz values and what does the P00tz discover? P00tz finds out the hard way that this beer is able only to satisfy the P00tzís yearnings for sweet sweet alcohol. In short this beer is a boozy cascade of disappointments and as such is simultaneously reminiscent of P00tzís life past and his glorious release.
*Pootz is also a big fan of alcohol!

Sweet taste of molasses. Easy to drink. Little alcohol burn. Very good price point for a beer of such strength. Recommended

Pretty decent porter, a little watery in the mouth feel, and the head isnít as thick as I like to see in a porter.

Excellent Porter that has a wonerful smokey character yet goes down smooth and is very pleasing to the palate

Best bang for the buck! Got 1/2 liter for $2 (in a stagflation economy mind you). Smells a little like funky fish (but in a good way)? But when you taste it you will be pleasantly surprised by the coffee, brown sugar, raisins and malt flavors. Everything a Baltic Porter should be, love it or hate it brahsky! Iím stocking up!
