COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
OG 1108, FG 1026, Color 388.7 EBC, Chinook and Saaz hops. Bitterness 93.5 EBU.

Stronger version of a Baltic Porter. Comparable with an Imperial Stout but without the heavily roasted malt character. This created a soft beer with strong hops in the finish.

11.2 ounce bottle poured into a brandy snifter. Pours a thick, viscous black with a thinner head of khaki colored foam. Decent retention. The aroma has notes of caramel, creme brulé, milk chocolate. Fairly sweet and chocolaty. Thick mouthfeel and body. Very subtle carbonation. Nearly chewy and syrupy. An earthy sweetness lingers after the swallow.

De Molen ci lascia sbigottiti davanti a un calice pieno di un liquido scuro e molto denso, quasi cremoso. Il grado scivola via, liberandoci da qualsiasi sensazione di pesantezza, obliato dalle note torrefatte e cioccolatose, chiuse da un finale luppolato indimenticabile. Con una sacher, con una crostata di mirtilli, da sola: questa birra lascia il segno nella memoria. Superlativa!

Haslinger (909) - The World of Beer, Texas, USA - NOV 24, 2013
12 ounce bottle shared with kegbear, pours a dark dark brown almost black with zero head. Smells like sweet licorice. Good dark roasted malt mouthfeel with a bit of anise. Almost chocolatey finish. Very very delicious. Would buy again

Pours opaque black, slighty dark brown, very low carbonation. Thick light brown head that vanishes to around 5mm. Aroma : caramel,sugar, very nice. Taste is round with almost no bitterness. Palate is silky-smooth. A nice classic beer in the genre.

Pour out of 375 mL bottle, dark black pour with tan head, aroma brought notes of dark chocolate cardboard, hints of earth, coffee, slight earth, weird dark fruit. Taste is a mix of dark chocolate, dark fruit, hints of oak, vanilla, lots of cardboard, hints of earth. Ok.

Bottle @ Armin’s palace, ordered from craftShack recently. Pours a hazy reddish brown appearance with a light brown head. Cardboard, spicy grainy, caramel, light chocolate, super oxidized aroma. Goopy chocolate, vanilla, coconut, very oxidized flavor. Just ordered this and it tastes super fucken old.

Bottle. Deep dark pour with a white head. Amazing aroma of roasted malt and sweet chocolate and licorice. Moderate palate. Taste is dark fruit, semi-sweet. Great beer!

vadie (1231) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 20, 2013
Presque noir avec un petit col le couleur de café. L’arôme sucré de molasse, réglisse, un peu de chocolat, et un peu de fruits noir. D’abord le goût est un peu amer mais c’est bientôt de molasse sucré puis de chocolat, réglisse, et prunes. Un bon après goût assez sucré. Un peu huileux en bouche, épais avec carbonation faible, c’est aussi un peu vineux. Très bonne et aussi avec l’alcool très bien caché.

houblonchien (89) - CANADA - NOV 20, 2013
rich aroma - coffee,vanilla, banana, chocolate, alcohol. Complex flavour; sweet with a touch of bitterness with pine notes - chocolate, caramel. Mouth feel is almost buttery. Somewhat hot. This is a very distinctive porter.
