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.

gyllenbock (6285) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 11, 2015
On tap at Taproom Malmö. Black with a small tan head. Sweetish and vinous with chocolate, coffee, some hints of dark fruit and licorice. The body was full and the aftertaste long.

Rating #5100! Deep dark brown coloured body with a touch of clear golden brown coming through the sides, all with a very thin, fast-dying tan head. Aroma of oak, vanilla, alcohol, roasted malt, earth, raisins and bunches of caramelised sugars and pit fruits. Full-bodied; Rich roasted malt flavours with pit fruits, earth, vanilla, bourbon and maple syrup noticeable - pungent and very well-rounded. Aftertaste shows a good robust malt flavour with some anise, nutmeg, earth, smoke and even a bit of pungent yeast flavours coupled with a solid sweet finish from the pit fruits and caramel - very nice, as expected. Overall, a great beer, and a nice choice for a 100th rating (51 of them), and most likely even better, considering i’ve been keeping it around for a while and even going to Holland in the process while this is back home. I sampled this 33 cL bottle purchased from Olive Tree Market Place in San Diego, California on 07-June-2013 for US$9,99 sampled at home in Washington on 07-August-2015. Produced in The Netherlands on 05-April-2012. Produced: 05-April-2012 // Purchased: 07-June-2013 // Sampled: 07-August-2015

PabloZab (729) - Wroclaw, POLAND - AUG 5, 2015
Tap (Szynkarnia, Wroclaw). Piwo totalnie nieprzejrzyste o niemal czarnej barwie, bezowej pianie, calkiem obfitej o kremowej konsystencji oblepiajacej szklo w stu procentach. Aromat niezbyt intensywny z nutami porterowymi, slodkimi, sherry, delikatnie palonymi, sliwki, suszone owoce. Bardzo podobnie w smaku z delikatna palono-alkoholowa goryczka i slodkawym posmakiem. Piwo tresciwe ale jak na swoja moc lekkie w odczuciu i pijalne. Alkohol dobrze ukryty, jedynie po chwili trafia do glowy i delikatnie rozgrzewa od srodka.

(Bottle, 0.33 l - bottled 19/05/15 - BB 19/05/40!!, at Stadin Panimobaari, 20150724) The beer poured black. Its head was rather small and nearly white. Aroma had liquorice, sweetness, chocolate and coffee. Palate was full bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were liquorice, sweetness, chocolate, burnt malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was roasty and bitter. A very nice roasty brew. Balanced and hid alcohol very well.

Black beer with very inviting aroma of vanilla, chocolate, coffee and cream. The result is a beer with a heavy taste of milk chocolate and some coffee. There’s some gentle bitterness and the alcohol is very well hidden , making it vert easy to drink. All in all, a great beer, but reminds me more of a milk chocolate stout than a porter.

Great beer. Chocolate and strawberries on the aroma. Very smooth chocolate and red fruit flavours. Very drinkable for such a high alcohol beer.

Jabeerwocky, z kranu. ciemne, klarowne, z sympatyczna acz niewysoka i zostajaca tylko w obwodce piana. Aromaty ciemnych owocow (wisnie? sliwki ale swieze, nie suszone?) palonosci, troche karmelu, troche czekolady troche jakichs trawiastych nut... swiezo, zaskakujaco lekko w sumie. w smaku dosc analogicznie, kwaskowate w owocowy sposob, palonosc tez jest, goryczka wyczuwalna i wcale nie niska, taka roslinna, trawiasta. nie jest slodkie, ale specjalnie wytrawne tez nie - gdzies po srodku. malo ciala, na graniczy wodnistosci niemal jesli idzie od odczucie w ustach (mimo, ze smaki i aromaty intensywne), ale nieprzeszkadzajaco. czuc tez alkohol nieco na likierowa maniere - choc i tak przyzwoicie schowany za innymi rzeczami, zwlaszcza jak na 11%. Bardzo fajne piwo, choc zupelnie inne, niz mozna sie spodziewac po stylu, lekkie w odbiorze, fajne w smaku, zdradliwe jesli idzie o %.
