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.

Pours a very dark brown/black with huge light brown head that quickly dissipates and forms a small ring around the glass. Aromas of toast, caramel, toffee, dark fruit, licorice, malty sweetness, and some dark coco. Flavours of rich malty sweetness, dark fruits, roasted malts, nutty, toffee, caramel, hint of coffee bitterness, licorice and some light alcohol.

Bue à quelques reprises, probablement trop chaud pour la fixer sur ratebeer, voilà je le fais. Noix de coco, chocolat, caramel et autres sucres accostent massivement dans ma bouche. Les houblons ne sont que spectre, la chaleur d’alcool volcanique, j’aime bien ce monstre.

rxeight (1376) - Illinois, USA - OCT 26, 2014
12 oz bottle dated 05/04/12. Pitch black with a touch of sand color head. Aroma is a tonne of euro malt. Taste is licorice and molasses. Very roasty. Hides the 11% pretty well. Decent, but not as impressive as all the barrel aged ones I’ve had from them.

Drucken på Norrlands Nation, Uppsala. Mycket fin och lagom tunn. Lite lätt kaffe, tunn kropp med tanke på alkoholstyrkan. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I am not the huge fan of porters but this one didn’t taste like one and was more like a smoked stout

Kavu (2300) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 27, 2014
0,33l bottle from Bierkoning, Amsterdam. Aged for 2,5 years. Pours very dark brown with a low tan head. Aroma is sweet roasted malts with some alcohol. Deep flavor is sweet roasted malts, cherries, madeira, alcohol and some hops. Exquisite.

wiosna (205) - - SEP 27, 2014
0,33 pullo@ Hermanna. Ei kovin samea, punaiseen taittava tummanruskea. Tuoksussa ihan hento savuisuus, sherryä, alkoholia, ylikypsää kirsikkaa. Maku pehmeän täyteläinen, suklainen, tummaa punaista marjaa ja säilöttyä kirsikkaa.

PawelD (214) - Gdańsk, POLAND - SEP 22, 2014
Piwo z kranu. W zapachu słony sos sojowy dominuje, poza tym lekkie nuty czekolady i kawy. Kolor czarna smoła, nieklar, piękna beżowa pianka cudnie lepi szkło i trzyma się do ostatniego łyczka, wysycenie średnie. W smaku ziemistość, rodzynki, lekko słone, nuty karmelowe, kawowe i likier śliwkowy, lekko wędzone(?). Bardzo przyjemna i dobrze ułożona chmielowa gorycz na finiszu. Z minusów mogę jedynie powiedzieć że czułem lekkiego gwoździa a poza tym super piwo.

vipinvelp (2260) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - SEP 19, 2014
Dark brown/black small light brown little lacing foam head. Aroma is stark bitter coffee. Bitter coffee taste, some roasted bread tones. Smooth still. Bitter aftertaste. (Velp 201409)

Elwood (3311) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - SEP 17, 2014
Serving: Small bottle. Black pour with a decent tan head. Powerful nose full of port, coffee, raisin, dates, and earth notes. Certainly warming at 11% with a nice forward sweetness followed by coffee liqueur, slight anise, and a little earthy bitterness. Well balanced for what it is. Rather tasty.
