Oily black pour with a 1-2 finger, creamy, caramel brown head. Aroma is huge on roast, some dark caramel, chocolate, wet granite, a little earth and grassy, light citrus and pine hops. Flavor starts of with a deep complex roastiness, nothing else to like it to at first, just a great application of roasted malt, after a little bit some other flavors come in dark chocolate, burnt sugar, sweet caramel malt, caramel malt grains (pre mashing), sweet, tree fruit esters, some sweet bread spice, molasses and pine hops. Heavy body with a creamy to syrupy entry, light carbonation and slightly more syrupy, but still creamy then off dry finish. Really fantastic stuff.

This lil’ B is a big ol’ porter. Bitter chocolate, dark fruit, molasses and essence of the depths of hell. Tasty.

rodenbach99 (4154) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 11, 2016
Style et résumé: Superbe porter imperial.
Comment: En fût au Saint-Bock finale Euro 2016.
Portrait: Une robe brune foncée presque noire avec une mousse collante beige. Un nez de mélasse, d’outils en bonbon, iodé, fumé et presque oxydé comme un xeres Pedro Ximenez. Une bouche ronde et enveloppante, une douce carasse pour le palais. Des saveurs intenses de caramel, mélasse, dattes et raisins secs. Superbe.
Note: 8+/10

Black, small brown head. Roasted aromas with chocolate and some sweet vanilla lingering in the nostrils. Taste is a nice chocolate bar, with some bitter dark roasted malt during the finish. Really good.

Scrumpy369 (398) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUN 3, 2016
On tap at eleszto importer. Pitch black colour small brown head disappears almost instantly. Nose is dried fruits with some soysuce in the background. Taste is medium high sweetness wih strong dried fruits and molasses. Almost too geil. Full creamy mouthfeel, well hidden alcohol. A little bit more bitterness could balace it out better imo.

Pours pitch black almost no foam. No nose! In mouth good chocolate and coffee, a touch (tiny) of licorice and dried black plums. Great beer, well balanced, easy drinking, very mild sweetness.

KarlPopper (64) - Krakow, POLAND - MAY 17, 2016
Intensive aroma with melanoidines, smoked plum, coffee, cocoa cake, great baltic porter notes. Mouthfeel is thick, full and sweet but this sweetness increases the experience of beer being full bodied. An extremely enjoyable beer with no hints of alcohol, complex and very well drinkable. One of best porters I have ever drunk
