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.

Koelschtrinker (10514) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 29, 2011
Süßlicher, stark malziger Antrunk. Ein getreidiges Aroma steht kurz alleine da, wird dann aber süß-würzig und wirkt mit der Malzigkeit ausgewogen. Vollmundig, Hopfen und Malz spielen gut miteinander. Dabei sehr süffig. Gut! /12/12/13//12

GT2 (8380) - San Diego County, California, USA - MAY 9, 2011
UPDATED: JUL 14, 2011 180mL red wax 2010 ed bottle #555 with a big thanks to nickls for sharing! What a treat. Tsarina Esra pours a tepid to flat muddy brown with heavy opacity. Not super enticing. The aroma is very interesting: orange dark chocolate, potpourri, heavy clove and dried citrus peel, mild cognac/Grand Marnier, spiced rum, orange liquor. Taste is soft, spicy, dark chocolate bitter, big orange spice and cognac. Palate is rich, soft, oily, full. Would like some more! 5/9/2011 8/3/7/4/15=3.7

180mL 2009 ed bottle. The pour is a tawny deep ruby with a thick, brown head erupting (almost impossible to pour a bottle this small and generate a head- but it can be done). Sticky lace. Nose is red licorice but opens up into cinnamon and fudge. Taste is silky, milk chocolate, heavy fudge and brownies. Very rich and silky palate. 7/13/2011 8/4/7/5/15=3.9

phredrik (1010) - Copenhagen (formerly Aalborg), DENMARK - MAY 8, 2011
Bottle shared by Svend, consumed at 4 years of age. Pours deep, deep opaque brown, nice light brown head. Aroma has brown sugar, chocolate, fudge, caramel, sherry-like, hints of figs, dates and coffee. Taste has brown sugar, toffee, chocolate, sherry notes, figs, dates, coffee and roast, very sweet. Could use a bit more hoppiness to balance some of the sweetness. But really nice aside from that.
