3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500 ml bottle from bursprak, thanks! Into a snifter, ABV 7.9%
The beer is totally black in colour, with a tall dark brown head, thick, with very good retention. After it has collapsed, well-formed rings of lacing are left behind.
Aroma has chocolate, light coffee, obvious alcohol. Nice but a bit faint.
Taste on the other hand comes full force on. Again chocolate, plenty of alcohol, some liquorice, raisins, roasted malts. Nice bitterness on the aftertaste.
Quite thick on the body, with nice carbonation.

Bottle 33cl from Henrik, a dark beer with low copper head. Nose is intense on burnt vegetables notes. Aroma is roasted with intense roasted notes, some rotten touch, smoked notes, roasted, spicy, personally not my cup of tea.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
330 ml bottle into snifter, bottled on 1/7/2008. Pours hazy fairly pitch black color with brown edges, with a 1 finger dense tan head with goof retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of big raisin, plum, dark chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, coffee, toast, dark bread, molasses, light smoke, light licorice, herbal, and roasted earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good complexity of dark/roasted malt, light licorice, and yeast ester notes; with good strength. Taste of big dark chocolate, cocoa, toast, dark bread, roasted malt, coffee, raisin, molasses, light smoke, light licorice, herbal, and roasted earthiness. Slight roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of dark chocolate, cocoa, toast, dark bread, roasted malt, coffee, molasses, light smoke, light licorice, and roasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice complexity and balance of dark/roasted malt flavors, light licorice, and yeast ester flavors; with great robustness and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light-medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a very creamy and lightly slick/chalky mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent Baltic porter! All around great complexity and balance of dark/roasted malt, licorice, and yeast ester flavors; and very smooth to sip on. A very enjoyable offering.

Bottle @ GT’s Cat Cabana. Thanks to Erik for this one. Just about black in color with a khaki head. Big roasted malt, some chocolate, and lots of coffee. A bit of cocoa powder and light vanilla. Mild to moderate bitterness of roasted malt and cocoa powder. Big time coffee and dark chocolate. A bit on the smokey side. Pretty solid.
