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.

Ah, doesn’t it feel just great to drink a proper porter? Black pour with a frothy tan head. Wonderful nose of chocolate (running the spectrum from white to dark), vanilla, marzipan, oak, and roasted malts. I’d have given it a 10 if, ceteris paribus, it were a little stronger (meaning more obvious to the nose, not necessarily different in its constituent notes). Smooth, medium-to-heavy body with austere carbonation. Taste is sweet and only sufficiently bitter, with a mild boozy component, with an earthy but sweet finish.

thanatosti (1022) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 15, 2015
33 cl. bottle @ home, bought online @ Biernavigatie.nl. Clear dark brown with a very thin beige head. Aroma is mainly dark chocolate and some roasted malts. Taste is more alike chocolate than beer, but in a good way. Finish is bitter but without the mentioned hops.

WelshPL (24) - Poznań, POLAND - FEB 13, 2015
Pours black, opaque, Almost no head even poured from high, but what stays in glass is nice laced. Aroma full of roastiness, chocolate. Beer is quite sweet, body is full, but I drank it too young(Bottled in 2013) and alocol was too strong.

Bottle. Aroma: chocolate, coffee, pretty intense malts, dark fruits, noticeable alcohol both in aroma and taste. Hoppy finish. It seems that with rise of its temperature it become less sweet and more complex (from c.a. 14C to r.t.). When warmer – better balanced.

33cl teku. Pours a very thin, slow rising and big bubbled head, quite a particular one, seems like a veil of milk shake foam on top of the beer which is pitch black; strangely the head besides being thin is quite durable too. Smells cocoa, roasted, wooded, nutty, bit hoppy. Tastes again dark chocolatey, licorice, espresso notes, toast, herbs; swetness is arounf moderate, the bitterness is on a higher medium level, smooth and in place despite the generous hoppiness. Soft carbo, medium body, silky and oily very nice texture, slick. Great drinkability doesn’t seem at all 11%vol, huge balance, a great brew

GIJOE (730) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - JAN 26, 2015
Pours pitch black and opaque, like used motor oil. Thick, creamy, tan head that settles down to film within a minute or two. Copious lacing. Nose is huge dark-roasted malt, molasses, and chocolate. Taste is fairly sweet, but there's a good hop bite to balance it out. Full bodied and rich. Very tasty brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Deep brown colour. Aroma is sweet dominated by chocolate and caramel malt. Taste is very reach - chocolate, nuts, licorice, full body, very low bitterness of noble hops.

2009 Bottling
From notes. Tasted in early December 2012 from a 7oz nip bottle, shared with Curtis. Pours very dark brown with a minimal brown head that quickly disappears. The nose is dark and roasty with chocolate syrup, molasses, coffee and vanilla. The flavor very nicely balances bitter and sweet with roasted dark chocolate, coffee, molasses, chocolate syrup, and vanilla. The body is full with light carbonation and a long roasted and bitter coffee, chocolate, and vanilla finish.
