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.

Nice! Wondeful aroma with loads of dark berries and a slightly hoppy nose. Thick texture, roasted but in contrast to many other beers this dark, it has no astringency or harshness in the finish. Very complex and full of flavour, but easy to drink at the same time,

Bottle, recommended from Knightly. Poured like chocolate syrup; quick diminishing tan cap. Smelled like chocolate mousse and a hint of sweet fine tobacco. For such a robust flavor, it was incredibly smooth with a bit syrupy mouthfeel. What a gem of a porter!

Finally get to try this. Opaque black pour with a little bit of brown foam. Aroma is very much chocolate, coffee, malts, oats, dark fruits. I love the flavor, it is very roasted coffee, quality dark chocolate, slight alcohol burn. Very rich and full palate. I’m pretty impressed with this.

Jiffypark (31) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 9, 2007
Poured a very black brew with a rich head, smell was wonderfully thick. Roasty and hearty all the way down. A little too bitter for my taste, though.

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.

Pours jet black with a small tan head. Leaves minimal lacing. Aroma is nut, oat, chocolate and coffee. Taste is that of dark chocolate, dark fruit (plum? currant?), coffee and sweet cream. Very rich and enjoyable!

jrhammonds (29) - Lincoln, Nebraska, USA - AUG 14, 2007
Pours a dark brown opaque body with medium tan head that sticks around like the creme from an espresso. Aroma is crazy sweet with chocolate malt and nuttiness--a touch of wood. Tastes insanely smooth and creamy; a ton of chocolate malt, complex sugars, and some coffee notes to round it out. Low carbonation allows for the complexities to come through unscathed. Minimal hop; and alcohol presence almost non-existent. A lasting bitterness that comes in late and stays for a while. One of the best beers I have had to date.

MuertosPorter (24) - California, USA - MAR 7, 2008
UPDATED: AUG 7, 2009 Bottle. Pours a rich oily black with a velvety brown soft fluffy head. Permeating aromas of V.S.O.P. brandy, baking chocolate, and Guatemalan coffee. Creamy smoothness. Perfect amount of carbonation on the palate. Very rich pronounced flavors. Dark chocolate, fine muscat wine, black walnuts, small touch of ginger, black treacle, dried mission figs. Ultra rich, luxurious and thoroughly satisfying. Outstanding! Heartbreaking news of the new brewery ownership.
