arminjewell (8135) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 25, 2011
Pours black with thin off white head. $1.99 for a 500 ml, so overall this was a nice surprise. Aroma had notes of chocolate, some dark fruit, and a touch of coffee. Taste is some cocoa, dark fruit, some slight vinegar, and a slight sweet toffee notes. Good stuff!

deyholla (7638) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 24, 2011
Bottle. Pours black with a grayish brown head that dissipated quickly to the edges. Aroma is full of intense aromatic roasted malts with a bit of coffee and a hint of earthiness. Flavor was similar starting full of roasted malts with a bit of creamy coffee and just a tad of chocolate. Finish is a bit thin, but solid overall.

DSG (7623) - Tel Aviv, - NOV 7, 2013
Bottle. Clear dark amber to brown with light reddish hues and a big bubbly beige head. Aroma of mild roastiness, coffee, licorice, dark bread, smoky hints and light fruity notes. Sweet flavor, malty, caramelly, mildly roasty, with dark bread, chocolate, coffee, licorice, light fruitiness and a slightly drier, more roasty, and slightly alcoholic finish with a light smoky hint. Medium to full-bodied, kinda syrupy and sticky. Not bad, but too sweet and sugary for my liking.

DuffMan (7577) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 7, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 8, 2014 Bottle. Dark brown, but not quite inky, with a thin brown head. Aroma is sweet, but in a way that isnít entirely appealing, cola-ish with caramel and dark fruits. Tootsie Rolls! That;s what Iím getting here! And Iím not crazy about it. The palate is much the same, more caramel, very little roast, and with a dusty, flinty dryness in the finish. Just okay.

chriso (7482) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 1, 2006
Bottle at RBESG Grand Tasting, August 2005. Nearly black, with a ruby tinge. Strong Baltic Porter character, with licorice and tar, some tart fruit and very noticeable volatile alcohol in the aroma. But is shockingly sweet and, coupled with the alcohol burn, this makes for a very odd mouthfeel indeed. Like surgical spirit mixed with cassis and treacle - more like a medicinal tincture than a beer. Rather crude. Not really my thing.

BVery (7472) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - FEB 2, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Bottle. Very deep mahogany pour with a monster foamy tan head. Aroma and taste of chocolate, dark fruits, licorice - pretty sweet tasting. Medium slightly oily palate.

Ibrew2or3 (7344) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - SEP 25, 2008
Pours deep garnet with semi big bubbled tan head. The aroma has notes of dark fruity esters like prunes, figs and dates as well as licorice, burnt malts, some notes of earthiness and a faint hotness on the nostrils. The taste is nice with bold yet even with approachably smooth earthiness mixing with chocolate and burnt malts. Those flavors are followed by an under current of dark fruity esters that tie the taste together nicely. It ends with residual dark fruitiness but mostly roasty malts and fading earthiness. Very pleasing combination of notes creating a very tasty brew.

Ughsmash (7283) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 14, 2006
0.5L bottle. Poured a deep brown with garnet highlights. Tall, loose initial head receded to a thin film with patchy lacing. Nose was intriguing with dark chocolate, burnt molasses, licorice, and mild alcohol as it warmed. Flavor was of cocoa upfront, followed closely by a plethora of burnt, sticky dark malts (licorice, soy, and molasses come to mind)... there was an increasing alcohol presence as this warmed, progressing from warmth to texture to a major component of the flavor. Palate was light, considering the heavy flavor elements.. with only decent transition of flavors. Finish was warm and of moderate length, with burnt dark malts representing. Solid porter with some noticable rough spots.

marcus (7237) - Sacramento, California, USA - SEP 30, 2006
On tap at Oaktoberfest in Sacramento. This dark brown ale poured with a thin brown head. There is a slightly sweet treacle flavor with a nutty malt finish. A pretty good porter.
