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.

Klimaet (69) - Aarhus N, DENMARK - JUN 20, 2014
Tap @ Fermentoren, Aarhus. Pours a deep black with some brownred hues. Aromas of chocolate, coffee, burned malt, yeast, slight nutty and earthy. Taste is quite nutty, yeasty and quite sweet. It almost has some triple/quad-like hints to the sweetness. Not very roasted and finishes very sweet. Could use some more body and roastedness.

Osprey87 (1363) - WALES - JUN 15, 2014
Bottled Apr 2012. Opens with a ffft. Dark brown, forms a massive tan head, some short-lived lacing. Aroma is chocolate, sour caramel, yeasty, lightly metallic. Quite a strong smell, but not that inviting. Body is medium, smooth, low carbonation, a little foamy. Taste is soft malts, a little ash, redcurrent, coffee. Aftertaste is burnt coffee and salted butter. From the smell I thought something was amiss, but it tasted good.

rikstar (652) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 8, 2014
0,33L fles, do keer bruin met een bruinE kraag. Geur is typisch geroosterde mout koffie en cacao maar ook zoet stroop schriftuur. Smaak begint vol zoet met wederom de stoop. In de afdronk komt ook het hopbitter en alcholwarmte. Niet helemaal in balans en wat te zoet.
