2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Earthy, sulphury aroma with some plum and blackberry on top of a brownish black syrupy baltic porter with a smallish tan head.Flavor is sweet and coffee-ish with a roasted bordering on burnt caramel aftertaste. Some diacetyl and not really my thang....

Deep brown, generous tan head.Strong metallic nose,not much else. Flavor is sickeningly sweet and sugary,light coffee.The overabundant sweetness makes it seem flat.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500ml bottle sampled at a drinking session in Tromsø. Opaque dark brown body colour. Off-white head containing lots of bubbles. Aroma has got a dark malty profile. Taste like a kind of mouth-filling chocolate milk shake developing into flavour accents of sweet dark malts. Much too sweet and rather one dimensional for a porter (18.04.2007).

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
A dark brown/ruby with a small light brown head that doesn’t last. Aroma is a sweet molasses and caramel with some dark fruit. Taste is way too sweet for me. Molasses, chocolate, maybe even some soy sauce. It was honestly hard to finish. Small credit giving for hiding the alcohol, but I would not recommend it.

500ml bottle. Certainly a scary one. Crazy eastern European dunkel chocolate and sugar aroma. Basically seems like they added extreme amounts of sugar to the mash. Pretty gross, some pungent chocolate syrup, wreaking of artificiality. Some sweet butterscotch caramel tones in the finish. An awkward, crappy beer...and I typically like Baltic Porters.

I must say that I was less than excited and much disappointed with this porter, not neqarly as good as some of the fabulous Polish Baltic Porters I have tried. Not much of an aroma, this felt malty, watery and charred on the tongue, like an ordinary Dunkel.

Bottle (Lars). Dark brown (almost black) - offwhite head. Raisins, plums, coffee, licorice, brown sugar, butter. It could have been 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 P00tz’s yearnings for sweet sweet alcohol. In short this beer is a boozy cascade of disappointments and as such is simultaneously reminiscent of P00tz’s life past and his glorious release.
*Pootz is also a big fan of alcohol!
