Very small cream-coloured head over black beer. Liqueurish nose & sweet bread as bread soaked in wine and sweet soy sauce; liquorice. Lots of liquorice and drop in the taste - even salt drop. Bitterness made salty/mineral by the combination? Finish is quite dry, nearly ashy. Medium bodied, but very (grist)slick, slight oily feel. Yeah... somehow I fear the exotic hops don’t work well with the more traditional rest.

MrHangover (3055) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAR 13, 2015
Bottle as rail soda, courtesy of random stranger. Pours a pitch black beer with a small off white head on top. Aroma has loads of coffee, roasted malts, dark caramel. Flavor has loads of coffee, caramel, big sweetness. Nice in balance, long sweetish aftertaste. Good stuff.

bierkoning (10843) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - MAR 10, 2015
Bottle. Deep dark brown color. Malt, licorice, vegetable notes in the aroma. Seaweed. Malty sweet, roasty flavor with salted licorice. Sweetish, laurel. An odd mix of a doppelbock and a porter. Hard to rate this beer properly.

What a full and layered array of aromas! Draf, wort, grass, dark cane sugar, melasse, candi. Soft mouthfeel with at start the alpha acids kicking in some bitterness, slowly shifting to a malty taste and subtle aftertaste of hops and herbal flavours. The hops go from a subtle smell to an interesting taste. This baltic porter is a bit watery, which makes it very drinkable. It’s different + has has a stunning nose - even some pepper after some sniffs. Lovely!

flip_soeperman (690) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 22, 2015
Very complex beer. More on the side of a bock then a porter, not very roasted in flavour yet full bodied and viscous. Has some sweetness of a quadruple but with more bitterness. Very nice layered beer.

Rune (8919) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 25, 2014
Draught, taster at the Gänstaller brewery, many thanks to Andreas. A beige head with big bubbles. Jet black coloured body. Roasted dark malty aroma added by dried fruits. Rich taste of grainy chocolate, nuts, coffee and prunes. Roasted malty, mid-sweet, finish with alcohol warmth. Full bodied. Lovely sipper (Hallerndorf 11.10.2014).
