UPDATED: APR 30, 2013 Dark opaque brown almost black with an orange tint and a frothy, brown, disappearing, non-lacy head. Deep smell of roasted malt and smoke, chocolate with butter and sweet dark caramel and toffee. Dark fruits – cherry, plum, prune. Full oily body. Sweet initial taste of caramel and milk chocolate, lots of roast ash and dark chocolate in the middle with a liquorish, fruity finish. From sweet to burnt bitter to sweet again in one sip. It would be amazing with a chocolate mousse. An excellent porter. Deep and delicious.

Dark, black colour, large brown head. Great aroma of roasted malts, chocolate and coffee. Taste is like aroma. Body is good, nice bitterness, not too much, lively carbonation, though still relatively soft. Good beer!

Hmmm, excellent Baltic Porter, forgot how much I enjoy this style. I don’t see it in Holland much. Slightly smokey and earthy but with enough red fruit and coffee to make this an excellent brew. Bottle from Burg Bieren in Ermelo.

Pours a beautiful black beer with a good brown head. Smells coffee, chocolate and a bit milkey and burn. I love the taste. Absolutely great. Heavy coffee. Burned. Thick body with a sticky texture. Good fitting carbo. Great beer!
