Oh wow... my friend and I thought this was just going to be a cheap filler beer in the night. How wrong we were! Pitch black pour with a thin, lacing head. Aroma of malt, chocolate, and smoke. Taste is very bitterly chocolate. Quite a nice surprise!

Pitchblack, little layer, malt licorice taste and also nose. Malt and espressom, roasted coffee beans- long lasting. Nice

This is the only beer from this brewer that I’ve had that is worth drinking. Smells and tastes of chocolate and coffee. Nice blend within a fairly rich malt body. A quick but dry coffee finish, some licorice. The extra alcohol isn’t in the foreground but sets this apart from typical Schwarzbiers.

iwantalambic (1478) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 18, 2004
500 mL bottle: wonderful opaque black ruby body with a dark tan cream…large toasted rye aroma, with wisps of coffee, and lightly burnt hops. Roasted peanut flavours, mix with a distinct herbal quality to offer a unique porter taste. Slightly gritty palate, but smoothes out in the finish…decent, but I really wanted some more fruitiness instead of the sugary sweetness.

Head is initially average sized, frothy, light brown, mostly lasting. Body is dark brown to black. Aroma is moderately malty (roasted grain, caramel, dark chocolate, coffee), lightly hoppy (flowers), with a note of wet stone. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Medium to full body, creamy/velvety texture, lively carbonation. Wow, good quality evidenced here...looking forward to more traditionally German offerings from this brewery. This is very British in both aroma and flavor profile...like a cask porter, tart and seemingly made to quaff (despite the ABV, which is not at all British). I usually don’t like acid in porters, but somehow the Brit/Irish mineral character, matching bitterness, and rich mouthfeel work out. Very skilled hands made this beer, regardless, that much is crystal clear.

UPDATED: MAY 20, 2004 Aroma left something to be desired.. this bear really didn’t smell great and I’m not sure what the scent was yet. The beer had a fairly good head for a porter.. it looked great looking thick and black. Tasted great and came in a large highly alcoholic serving...

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAY 12, 2004
Pours a rich roasty black with a thin light tan head. Subtle caramel malty aroma with a lightly roasted lager profile, pretty typical of a baltic porter. Starts semi-thin and sweet with a touch of acidity before a more roasty and sweet finish. Hides the alcohol magnificently well and is quite good for a German porter.

HighGravity (926) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 4, 2004
Mettalic palate. Very Dark. Sweet. Coffe and chocolate, but mot much elese.

igneous1 (1503) - Davenport, Iowa, USA - MAY 4, 2004
almost opaque, a little ruby comes through when held up to the light. head is a tan and a bit creamy, somewhat lasting. malt in the aroma, but with a fair amount of vegetal notes. flavor is pretty sweet, medium roasty, alcohol is virtually non-detectable. moderately roasty and lightly hopped in the finish...pretty good.
