Angelmonster (188) - 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. Can’t quite put my finger on this one but it isn’t brilliant.

Pretty good porter, smokey and a little chocolatey, heavy booze doesn’t really show up when you drink it, not bad

Roasty, caramelly, aroma. Pours dark brown with an amber tint, and a thick tan head. Moderately sweet with a roasty bitterness. A little caramel taste with a slightly sharp acidic finish. Full body. Good beer

Classic Polish Porter, awesome! Zywiec is the best but the Black Boss is nice too and very smooth / melow flavoring.

dkingsella (152) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 8, 2009
Pours dark black with little to no head. Aromas of bitter dark chocolate and cherries. Flavor was sweet with more chocolate, coffee and nice roasty notes. Overall a pretty good beer. Would pick it up again.

apshah99 (147) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 27, 2008
Pours a deep brown, very small fizzy head which quickly dissipates. Sweet, lightly roasted, malty and alcoholic aroma, very pleasing. Coffee and fruit, ending with chocolate sweetness; very little bitterness. Starts out nice on the palate but the body quickly thins out. Very drinkable..

DiabolikDUB (147) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 13, 2009
Poured from Bottle into Pint glass. Pours a dense black that has some slight deep copper edging with a light cocoa colored head that quickly dissolves into a nice layer atop the glass. The aroma has mostly sweet chocolate and is accompanied by some roasted malts. The flavor has more roasted malts, a lot of milk chocolate and a very light bitterness. Its a very light bodied porter with the right amount of carbonation. This is a pretty watery porter that leaves you needing much more flavor and the aroma is a dominated by too much chocolate.
