Reserve (indeed, it is not on the front lines like BLATZ), Black (true it is dark like a womans soul) Ale (not a lager). So truth in advertising, or WHAT? Could see pounding a few of these on the holidays and telling a few "truths" at the family dinner: like why is Uncle Mike such a lick knob?, or asking "Why is Blatz SO superior to EVERY OTHER BEVERAGE OF ALL TIME!?" It’s true, I am silly like that. So grab some Blatz for your old alcoholic self and let these sit in the icebox waiting your so-called "sophisticated" friends. Than you can relax in the knowledge of your own immense superiority and prepare to unleash your Blatz soaked WISDOM unto the unsuspecting rabble that you call your "friends"! Viva l’Blatz!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours very thick, with very little carbonation, little brown head, black liquid. Aroma is intensely malty, with caramel, chocolate, vanilla, coffee and clove. Full body, creamy thick mouthfeel, low carbonation, long bitter finish. Taste is initially sweet and turns into intensely bitter, with roasted coffee notes. Very complex and amazingly balanced.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very good porter, dressed in an imperial stout, with a marked character to roasted malts defined by the coffee and chocolate notes, both in nose and mouth. The best is their looking -that deep brown head!!- and the full body, strong but not aggressive. Great, nice porter, but I still prefer other ones, like Tsarina Esra.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle, sent from robloc303 (thanks a lot, Rob), pours a jet oily black with a small beige head. Aroma brings out toasted malt, earthy hops, and fruity sweet caramel - doesn’t strike me as a porter, but some fruity sweet black strong ale. Flavour is somewhere in between - certainly not a typical porter - brining out notes of dry cocoa, fruity notes, and caramel. Decent hopping as well. Quite robust and full-bodied. A bit too fruity and syrupy for my taste, but still enjoyable. Decent stuff, but way overrated.
