Maria (10158) - Thisted, DENMARK - MAR 1, 2008
Very dark ruby red with a small, creamy head. The aroma has a light sweetness, notes of malt and smoke. The flavour has a light sweetness, notes of roasted malt, smoke, fruit, syrup, light citrus and the finish is dry with a light bitterness and a rather pronounced smoky note. This nice brew has a rather full body!

FatPhil (9359) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 16, 2007
500ml bottle (Poseidon, Helsinki) Dark, almost black, tiny head.Salty liquorice aroma. Rich burnt taste, not too overpowering. Also good coffee and liquorice components. Full body, long burnt malty finish.

maeib (8726) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - NOV 18, 2007
Bottled. A black beer with very little head. The aroma is very smoky burnt. Like a winter fireside. The taste is roasty with deep dark fruits. Plenty of burnt malts. Very nice and a suitable beer with the snow falling outside.

leaparsons (8092) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 6, 2007
Bottle. Near black with a beige foam. Aromas are molasses and chocolate with sweetened coffee. Some soft spices and vanilla. Flavours are caramel and chocolate. Smooth with light berries. Suitably dark.

Rune (8065) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUN 23, 2008
A winter warmer for a cold summer day in the Arctic. Bottle shared at Charley’s post-birthday party in Tromsø. Off-white head over a dark brown body. Smoked aroma with hints of grain. Dark fruits and nutty malts in flavour. Smooth bitter ending. An easy drinking porter a bit out of tune (14.06.2008).

JorisPPattyn (7929) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - DEC 31, 2007
Small greige head, fed by well-carbonated black beer with a mauve shine. Very little aroma at first - wet cardboard. Then some roasted/burnt malts appear, as well as dried berries and old coffee powder. Very expressed (-o?) coffee taste, even aftertaste of stale coffee-and-cream. Quite bitter edge, faintly hoppy, and a bit smokey. Liquid brown sugar solution. Medium bodied at best, bit slick. Rather light porter, not very assertive.

gnoff (7844) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - DEC 17, 2008
50 cl bottle from Systembolaget. BB 021010. Slight hazy copper color, nice tan to light brown head. Acidic and smoke scent, perhaps some lemon. Acidic to sour taste, must be infected. Thin mouthfeel, low bitterness. Too bad. Heard this was a problem with part of this batch, since the batch of old smoked bock to Sweden was infected as well, sort of gives me the idea they have huge problems.

jercraigs (7812) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 13, 2011
2011-12-10. Crisp light brown body with a nice beige head. 3+ Lightly spicy, modest malt aroma, hints at caramel? Similar flavour, light spice, nice modest malt character has muted accents of caramel or toffee, perhaps chestnuts if you look for it. Average plus bodied palate. Its a touch light for a winter warmer, my overall impression is that this is better suited for a wintery English pub night on cask, but remains pretty enoyable. Bottle shared by Tuqueboy

Fin (7421) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 23, 2007
Bottle from Sainsbury, Heyford Hill, Oxford Poured looking every inch like a glass of coca cola, dark brown, bubbly and with beige head. Aroma a bit coppery like copper coins held in ones hand for a while, also I got a whiff of shandy bass. Tasted a bit smokey and sweetish but the coke similarities I mentioned earlier were in a way back again albeit another soft drink, as I got Dr Pepper, or sasparilla. I’m going against the grain I think with my review as beers go ok, as soft drinks go this is fine and a soft drink is all I thought about when I drank this.
