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.

maneliquor (3482) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 7, 2013
Bottle from City Beverage Co Shoreditch. Pours very dark brown with light only coming through on the very edges. A small light tan head is produced which quickly disappears to a small ring around the top. Nose is quite subdued. As it warms it opens up a fair bit. Reminds me of chocolate covered sultanas. Heavy dark fruits with sharp vanilla, chocolate, liquorice as it warms. Some odd black cherry tones which work nicely. Taste showcases the dark fruits, coats the palate in milk chocolate. Some heavy vanilla gives it a sharp bitter sweet note on the finish. Slightly dry. Carbonation is a little spritzy but helps it flow. 11% is hid very well. Good stuff without being spectacular

Bottle. Pours black with a thin tan head. Nose is chocolate and dark fruit. Taste is dominated by chocolate, but also has some sweet bourbon like notes but finishes with some smoke/char notes and some hop bitterness. Palate is thick and creamy. This is one of the best porters I've had in a while. Complex and delicious. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jmgreenuk (6733) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - MAY 14, 2013
Tap at De Molen. Poured a dark mahogany colour with a thin broken tan head. The aroma is fruity, a little malt and some alcohol. The flavour is medium bitter with a little liquorice, roasted malt and some resin too. Considering the ABV, the bitterness was well controlled and the palate was smooth and sweet.

esox (1226) - Oulu, FINLAND - MAY 1, 2013
Bottled. Really dark stuff, almost black with a reddish hue. Thin creamy head. Aroma has loads of malt, charred barley and fruity nectars, slight alcoholic touch. Malty flavor has salty licorice, some soy sauce. Slightly worty and sugary finish, but it has rather nice bitterness. Medium to full body, rather oily and low carbonated texture. Good, but somehow boring,
