Ughsmash (7353) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 30, 2006
Bottled. Poured a clear, deep, translucent caramel brown with a fine looking cap of beige head. You could tell that this was a thick one from the nose... rich molasses, plums, prunes, brown sugar, chocolate, and a hefty dose of alcohol... very sweet overall. The flavor was dominated by soy sauce, tar, and prunes... with alcohol seeping through at all phases of the drink. Sweet and syrupy... this reminded me of S.A. Triple Bock at several points (not a good thing in this guy’s opinion). The sweetness, alcohol, and soy at the finish made the drink cloying and hard to finish. Big and not very pleasant.

rlgk (13178) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 21, 2006
Bottle. Dark amber, small offwhite head. Quite mild tar aroma with some chocolate malt. Sweet and oily flavor, notes from figs and mint. A bit too thin.

EithCubes (5215) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 15, 2006
Bottle. Sweet and malty aroma with alcohol and plums/prunes, brown sugar, and a touch of caramel. A little harsh, actually. Rubypitch with an aggressive brown head. Legs but no lace. Syrupy and alcoholic, super thick and sticky. Dark roast malt establishes itself quickly, slight nuttiness, spicey, overly sweet. Brown sugar, caramel, plums/prunes. Very vinous, tons of "structure," dry hot finish. A real battering ram...and that’s no compliment....

fiulijn (16395) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 23, 2006
Dark brown color. Pretty good doppelbock, malty enough, quite sweet; caramel; traces of roasted nuts. Balanced sweetness/bitterness and doesn’t show too much the alcohol content. Yet, not enough aromatic nor complex.

rickgordon (3846) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 8, 2006
[Bottled. Courtesy of gnoff.] Dark ruby colour. Marzipan, sweet malty nose, with a touch of alcohol. Ultra-sweet backbone, light roasty and a remarkable warming alcohol feel. The sweetness plays first, second and third violin, preventing other characteristics to step forward. Syrupy mouthfeel.

gnoff (8377) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - JUN 8, 2006
Bottle brought home from Prague, purchased at "Pivni Gallerie". Label sais "Primator Double 24% Tmavy Porter". Dark ruby red color, big lasting beige head. Strong alcoholic scent, sweet with some liquorice. Very big body. Sweet and a bit red wine in the taste. The sugary sweet is dominant in the taste. Low bitterness.

rpattinson (84) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 29, 2006
Near black colour, thick light tan head; roast, cream, black toffee, raisins aroma; very sweet/bitterish taste with black toffee, caramel, chocolate, dates and coffee aromas; bitter finish with liquorice, treacle, black toffee, raisins and coffee aromas. A wonderfully rich and malty beer, which is big and bold in a quite un-lagery way. The label proclaims it as "tmavý porter" or dark porter. I’m not sure that’s what it is, but who gives a fig - it’s still a great beer. Well worth seeking out.

500 ml bottle poured a clear very dark reddish brown with a lasting amber head. Aromas of plums, raisins, molasses and toffee. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of dark fruit, molasses and a bit of toffee with a warming lingering sweet finish.

joergen (23360) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 6, 2006
Bottle. Clear red brown coloured with a beige head. Aroma of malts, caramel and dried fruits. Very sweet flavour of malts, caramel and bread. Too sweet.
