English: A dark and rich porter inspired by the Baltic porters traditionally made in Scandinavia. Roasted without being burned or bitter, with the flavor dominated by dried fruits and vinous notes. High amounts of residual sugars and a fruity aroma makes this beer the perfect companion for chocolate desserts, if served lightly chilled. Brewed on Maris Otter ale malt, British Brown Malt, chocolate malt, roasted barley, two types of caramel malt and brown sugar.

Bottle: Batch 306: BB 01/04/10: Original swing top bottle, nit sure who brought me this one... (Got 3 bottles from 3 differet people, or was it two....) Medium sized mocha coffee brown foamy head on top of black colored beer. Aromas of garbage bag, earth, walnut, plastic tint, some rotten fruit and a light chocolate tint. Flavours of chocolate, earth, hazlenuts, malts, cacoa, toast, some dried leaves, mocha, bitters, creamy coffee with coffee milk tints, some smoke and peated malts, grainy/nutty bitter and some dry tones. Aftertaste is a dry mix of bitters, chocolate, nuts, malt toast and some grains. Low carbo, creamy oily close to silky mouthfeel, full body and a light oily texture. Complex beer, just over the top? Still very good stuff!

Oily black body with airy tan head. Rich earthy aroma, cacao, some nuts. Taste adds some nutmeg and other spicy flavours. Slight metallic twange. Overal, a very well balanced beer with some unique, subtle flavours for the style

I must have had a bad bottle because this Porter didn;t wow me like it wowed others. In fact, I thought it was average at best as far as beer goes, and below average for a porter. The pour is nice dark brown (I matched it against some coal I have and it certainly failed to be jet black) with a brown head. The aroma was weak chocolate, weak coffee, and noticeable alcohol (a no-no in a 7.5% beer). Flavour is all over the place, a little coffee, a little chocolate, a little licorice, and a little vanilla, but nothing stood out as being supreme.

Ancient review, had this backlogged gem with Annie and Dad in August of 2010. Poured pitch black with medium sized beige head. Aromas were caramel, smoke, brown sugar, dark chocolate, honey and creamy malt. Flavor was most of the same with dark fruit and chocolate roast coming out. Body was medium to full. One of the best.

Scopey (6909) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 8, 2013
Bottle (which has crossed the Atlantic twice), shared @Bruces. It pours dark brown with a medium tan head. The nose is earth, roasted malt, caramel, toast, bubblegum, faint smoke and coffee. The taste is soft, roasty, smooth, ashy, salted caramel, toast, touch of oxidation, umami aspect, cocoa powder and earth with a dry, roasty finish. Medium-full body and fine carbonation. Smooth, well balanced and very drinkable indeed. Great stuff.

Humlenik (31) - DENMARK - APR 7, 2013
Aroma: Caramel, chocolate, coffee, liquorice and roasty malt. Also some hops is hiding in there and is most easily recognized just after pouring. Appearance: Dark brown/black color with a beautiful frothy, tanned head, which I’d wish lasted just a bit longer to enjoy :-) Taste: medium to heavy sweetness, lightly bitter, and a little salty. I don’t think it’s going too sweet in spite of it’s weighty sweetness. Palate: medium body, something in-between slick and thick. Average carbonation and a short bitter but long, salty and chocolate-like finish. Nice! A delicate beer to enjoy on it’s own or with some dessert like chocolate or ice cream.
