turbo (1271) - Arizona, USA - MAY 11, 2005
Bottle poured black with a medium sized off white head. Brown sugar and molasses aroma with a good medium body, sweet malty flavor is almost a bit to sweet for me. Became more roasty as it warmed..still to sweet.

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.

Dark brown colour with a small light brown head. Light roasted malty aroma with hints of a dark fruit sweetness. Bitter flavor with some dried fruit and a faint alcohol note.

footbalm (1219) - Western Minneapolis Suburbs, Minnesota, USA - MAR 12, 2006
Bottle from Riley’s in Madison. If I didn’t know I had beer under my nose I wooda’ thunk that I had just been offered a nice chocolate filled with coffee cream. Nose is very nice. It is black as hell with a little bit of creamy tan foam. Shit,too bad this did not taste like it smells. very muddled and non-descript.

fishonmyplane (505) - Newington, Connecticut, USA - JUL 21, 2006
In my opinion this porter is far too sweet. It tastes like a homebrew that has too much unfermented sugar left in the bottle. But as a positive, the beer has a good appearance. And you hardly taste the alcohol, despite the high ABV. Overall it’s just average, and that’s probably why it’s so inexpensive. $1.50 for a 16.9 oz, 9.4% ABV, imported beer... that’s bargain basement pricing right there.

RagallachMC (631) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - NOV 10, 2006
500ml bottle. Aroma: Dark fruit, mostly cherries and raisins. Molasses and light coffee. A bit of roasted nuts and licorice. Alcohol is a little boozy. Appearance: Dark brown with small ruby highlights. Medium beige head was full and rocky with good retention. Nice lacing. Flavor: Medium malt sweetness. Some dried cherries. Bit of a metallic twang. Coffee and licorice. Medium dry finish. Alcohol is up front but not unpleasant. Palate: Medium bodied and a bit watery. Medium carbonation. Alcohol warmth in back of mouth. Overall: A decent brew with some nice flavors, but not great. Mouthfeel was too light, and the metallic flavor was not very pleasant.

kseecs16 (1215) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - JAN 31, 2007
Bottle. The BOSS pours a nearly opaque dark brown with an inch tall tan head that wouldn’t lace much. Thick dark choclatey aroma, very sweet. Strongly malty with a dark chocolate character with hints of roasted charred malts. A slight bitter finish on this medium bodied beer.

holdenn (2110) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 17, 2007
Bottled thanks to drewbeerme. Pours a brown black with a beige head. Nose of brown sugar and alcohol. A little bready with chocolate and grain. Chocolate and brown sugar dominates the flavor, molasses, slightly burnt but overly sweet and doughy.

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.

JoeMcPhee (9267) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 24, 2009
Deep brown beer. Aroma is sweet, earthy and a little bit boozy There is a bit of soft cocoa and herbal character. Very sweet with caramel and light milk chocolate. Flavour is quite thin though... pretty boozy as well. Not really bad, but not great either.
