3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Near black colored with slight red hints, little brown head. Strongly sweet aroma is dominated totally by chocolate, mild smoke and alcohol also here. Near full bodied. Flavor is even more sweet with this same dominating chocolate, aftertaste is still sweet with vanilla, berries and thin smoke. Also medium alcohol comes up in aftertaste. Too sweet, still excellent full bodied brew.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: NOV 29, 2008 (Bottled, 0.75l) Dark, reddish brown with a very small, fading head. Tarry, sweetish-malty aroma with olives, raisins and other dried fruit. Dried-fruity, slightly sweet and licoricey-malty, pretty salty flavor with some anise. Quite full-bodied, smooth and medium-carbonated palate. A very nice and smooth Baltic Porter.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. High creamy and long llasting brown head. Pitch black body. A bit sharp and alcohol dominated aroma of coffee and cocoa. Powerful and somewhat bitter coffee cocoa flavor and alcohol as well, though not in a disturbing amount. Low carbonation and a long bitter aftertaste. Could not taste the honey but assume it is removing some of the bitterness.

Bottle, 75cl. DØE Porter/Stout tasting. The beer pours black, with a darkbrown head. The aroma is chocolate, with slight notes of earth/grass from the hops. The flavor is chocolate, with notes of alcohol. The mouthfeel is a rounded feeling, overall a great beer. This beer would gain a lot with ageing.
