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.

Black color. The aroma plays with caramel and roasted malt, the flavor with roasted malt and chocolate, oxidised; medium to strong body. Strong chocolate and roasted malt at the end. Light liquorice; alcohol warmth.

Dark color. Interesting aroma: caramel, nuts, roasted malt. And the taste goes along.... Thanks Jens (Ungstrup) for this bottle!

harrisoni (16931) - 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.

Koelschtrinker (16435) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 3, 2011
Süß röstmalziger Geruch. Übermäßig ist das Bier von Anfang an, eigentlich lecker, würde sich nicht permanent eine alkoholische Note einmischen. Auch die süße Note, die ab und an erscheint, gefällt weniger. Trotzdem ein recht leckeres Bier, das mich durch die ausgeprägte Malzigkeit bis in den späten Nachgeschmack überzeugt. Dabei ist die im Nachgeschmack auftretende Würze ebenfalls nicht zu verachten. Test vom 3.5.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 12,11,11,13,13,12

yngwie (16423) - 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)

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!

brokensail (15600) - Dublin, California, USA - MAY 18, 2011
A: The beer pours a very dark brown color with some reddish/amber notes to it and a finger of off-white head. S: Initial aromas are booze and metal, one might say pennies. A lot of dark roasted malts and a touch of dark, bitter chocolate. There are some dark fruit notes to the beer as it warms up, particularly prunes and raisins. T: The flavor is fairly harsh. Lots of bitterness and lots of roasted malts. A rather intense metallic flavor to the beer with a hint of cocoa powder and dark chocolate. Not much in the way of the dark fruits that were present on the nose. Alcohol comes through quite strongly as well. M: Medium in both body and carbonation. O: Too boozy and harsh to be all that enjoyable. The metal wasn’t doing much for me either.
