Bottle at home ... Thanks to Nightfall for this ... deep deep brown ... soft toffee roast malt nose ... soft gentle ... rich roast malt ... quite a lot of toffee ... burnt caramel ... liitle plums ... bit to much burnt sugers for me ... but tasty none the less.

MiP (13478) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - SEP 24, 2008
Bottle, 9.5%. Sweet and roasted aroma. Black colour. Big stable light brown head. The flavour is quite sweet, has a hint of metal. Roasted liquorice notes and a burning/warming alcohol finish. Why so much alcohol?

harrisoni (13153) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 2, 2005
33cl bottle, Albert, Warsaw. Very dark ruby colour. Good choc/coffee aroma with some freshness too. Velvety in the mouth with no dead feel. Malt has some sweetness, but there is a bit of dryness on the end to balance it. Very pleasant porter.

yngwie (13106) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 3, 2006
Bottled at RBESG-06, GTN. Dark brown, filtered porter with a tan head. Sweet and roasted nose with alcohol, chocolate, coffee and some licorice. Nice. The flavor and finish has too much alcohol, but after all it weighs in at 9.5%, so it is expected. The flavor is roasted and with coffee as well. Full body and a coffee-bitter finish. (060826)

TBone (12329) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 28, 2004
Bottled (BB 10/2004)
Very dark ruby, almost opaque. Good creamy expresso head. Aroma has licorice, dark choclate, molasses, wood. Full-bodied, smooth and sweetish palate: licorice, roasted coffee beans. Warming a bit alcoholic long finish, which brings some bitterish tones. Polish masterpiece!

Oakes (12167) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 2, 2001
Black, with a malty, vinuous nose. It is very dry, roasty and hoppy, with a big alcohol kick, some very burnt raisin flavours. The body is full and firm, and the finish is long and assertively dry.

(Bottle) Pours a black body with mahogany edges and tall beige head. Aroma of maple, toastiness, raisins, soy sauce, and caramel. Flavor of roasted malt, chocolate, and soy sauce. Alcohol is nicely hidden.

argo0 (11317) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 22, 2002
Cola appearance. Sweet raisiny aroma, malty complex. Malty sweet flavor that turns to raisin on swallow. Bitterness throughout, but as complement. Very good beer.
