Pint on tap. Black pour with a big ’ol tan head, lots of froth. Opaque, with strong adhesion. Strong alcohol aroma, similar to other baltic porters. This beer has a ton of taste, and a very persistent aftertaste, medium-light carbonation. Overall a refreshing and strong winter warmer!

A giant bottle of beer from Z and Z. Pours an opaque dark black with tan colored head. Aroma of roasted malts and wood. Taste is pretty complex, with malts, chocolates, coffee, wood, and hints of booze.

pinkie (470) - New York, USA - AUG 24, 2014
Pours the color of burnt caramel with a frothy head of khaki foam that’s creamy and lays itself on top of the beer. When the glass is not too full you can see cola colored hues and honey golds. Lace is shimmering like sea foam in the bright moonlight.

Nose is lush caramel and a fainter molasses. Coffee, chocolate and roasty malt. A sultry whiff of sweet bourbon and a bit of vanilla. The malt is earthy and fragrant. Some elusive dark fruits seem to flash and fade but the one that lasts is a alight plum.

Taste is dry roasty malt with it’s sweet underpinnings. washes over the palate with a surprising milky sweetness. Strong bitter coffee, dry bittersweet chocolate, subtle vanilla and tempting bourbon. There is a wood so light on this that it seems to be literally afloat, weightless on the beer. A slight warmth from alcohol as this one finishes crisp, dry, thinnish to the palate but with a medium mouthfeel and with some hop bitter to linger alongside all that smooth caramel.

"Solid brew as are most of this crooked line. Barrel faint at first especially in the nose but it opens up well. Only fault is a little prickliness and slight overcarbonation. Dark fruits, roasted malt and barrel are well balanced and tasty. Nothing is really quite a 9, but there are a couple 8.5’s so there ya go."

Patrickctenchi (4538) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - NOV 14, 2014
Bottle: Black, with a large, foamy, dark tan head. Chocolate wine...bourbon aroma. Smoky, barrel and chocolate taste. Creamy, thick chocolate malt...roasted fudge and a trace of bourbon. Very rich...almost too sweet, but the smoke reins it back in. Excellent.

Flaska från SB. Svart brun färg med stor smutsbrun skumkrona. Doft av mörk choklad, vanilj och ekfat. Söt fyllig kropp med lite vinkaraktär. Framträdande smak av choklad och ekfat. Lite rökig avslutning.

Dark chocolate, cola and charred wood in the aroma. Although it appears black, it’s actually a beautiful crystal clear dark brown and mahogany color with a very foamy medium tan head. All of the aromas show up in the flavor with the cola being pronounced which is perfect for a porter. There’s a nice licorice bite and an acrid burnt bitterness that balances out a mild sugary vanilla sweetness. The body is appropriately on the thin side with a bit of creaminess around the edges. The dry bitterness lays down on the tongue and stays there but not in an overwhelming way. The 8% ABV here is almost completely hidden which makes this dangerous. Finishes light and dry with a lasting bitterness and bittersweet/dark chocolate flavor. Excellent Baltic porter.
