   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 13/20
CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUL 6, 2005
Pours a rich, nearly opaque dark brown with a thick, frothy, and well-lacing light tan head. Has a mildly tart and roasty aroma with some dry caramel, but lacking that dark fruity complexity usually found in Baltic porters. Starts sugary and sweet without much complexity or balance for that matter. Sticky caramel and sugary, mild bitterness and chocolate throughout, leading to a slightly warming finish that hides the alcohol fairly well. This seems like it could use a little brewing finesse to give more complexity and less of a sugar-water character.

Sledutah (7027) - Utah, USA - FEB 15, 2010
500ml bottle from Brewforia
Appearance: Dark burgundy with virtually no head or lacing
Aroma: Dark fruits, caramel
Taste: Sweet malts, dark fruits & caramel. The finish is grainy and sweet
The alcohol is well hidden. Not bad, but I probably wouldn’t order a second pint if I was at a bar.

KnutAlbert (6712) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 2, 2007
50 cl bottle. Red black ale with milk chocoalte head. Rather sweet, with manilla and molasses. Some roasted bitterness, too, but too sweet for my liking. Some warming alcohol in the finish.

larsniclas (6698) - Billdal, SWEDEN - FEB 14, 2004
Bottled. Dark brown/black. Chocolate and some coffee in the aroma. Sweet, too sweet, with sugary moutgfeel. A bit burnt chocolate-flavour with a nutty bitterness.

BBB63 (6557) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - APR 4, 2005
Bottle: Deep reddish brown with a fizzy and mostly fading head and good lace. The aroma has notes of caramel, brown sugar, prune, molasses, grassy hops, and an earthy ester. The taste is very sweet and molasses like. So much so that the rest of malts and hops got subdued by the sweetness. The finish does display a fruity and coffee quality which saves the beer. The feel is quite strange, fizzy on one hand, syrupy on the other. Overall iit is okay but needs a bit more bitterness to back up all that sweet taste. Thanks for the bottle Joe.

ekstedt (6516) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - FEB 26, 2007
Bottle. Pours very dark brown with a reddish touch. The first impression in the nose reveals an overly sweet aroma with strong hint of figs and raisin. When sipping the first mouth, a cloying, sweet but also salty, and onedimensional raisin malt aroma overwhelms me, making it impossible to finish more than a few sips. Can’t believe this one is given a score of 3.5.

HogTownHarry (6375) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JUN 20, 2006
UPDATED: JUN 21, 2006 Bottle (500ml). Shared with blankboy and tupalev, blankboy’s bottle. Deep brown, average head. Roasty sweet oily aroma, nutty and a bit cola-like, grainy on warming. Taste is similar, oily, a little too extract-y- just okay. Light body, oily and bitter, burnt sugar aftertaste, nutty - decent, not great.
