3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours clear amber with airy but stable off-white head. Clear aroma pf hops and malt. Malty, roasted flavour with clear notes of caramel. Nice, dry aftertaste. Decent, except for the fact that it looks and smells like a dunkler bock rather than a porter.. My 666th rating, hence the appropriate choice, given the name. Must finish it quickly, drinking it just a couple of hours before Easter...

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Dark brown, coffeeish and harsh. Quite harsh coffee character, followed by a soft body and some light sugars. OK brew, but nothing either complex or interesting.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
At House of Beer, Krakow, I think draft. Cola colored with playfully scattered lace. Aroma is malty. If i didnt know it was actually brewed with sunflower seeds I would not say roasted seeds but more roasted black licorice. the flavors develop nicely, and has a solid body delivering bitter herbs and ginseng.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: SEP 26, 2012 0.5 bottle. Pleasant aroma of dark roasted malts with very strong coffee tone and a bread addition, somewhat fruity. A nice dark brown color with few drops of scarlet. Clear liquid with an average, creamy, brownish head of rather mediocre retention. Taste is finely balanced between sweetness and bitterness with the latter becoming predominant as the finish proceeds. Medium body, full could be expected though, creamy texture and soft carbonation. Finish is quite long and sophisticated, seems to be not only a duplication of the taste but also an extension, adds clarity and basically saves the palate for me. A really good local beer which will always be remembered and bought at every occasion.
