Pitch black no head and full bodied. Roasted malts are obvious. Only 9.5% I swear it’s a lie. Goes down a little harsh and I can feel it in my chest.

While I still prefer a good English porter over a Baltic, this was fantastic. I really enjoyed the body and first impression. My problem with Baltic porters is that I typically get a strange finish. Not sweet or nutty, but like metal or booze. Anyway, as good as this was it still had that unsavory finish. Not my favorite style, but a good beer and one worth trying.

Flavor is full of dark malt sweetness and fruit, with notes of cocoa, licorice, prune, roasty coffee, burnt sugars and faint cream. Light-moderate bitterness towards the finish, a slight alcholic presence is felt here, as well. Mouthfeel is smoothly effervescent and coating, body is full.

Mork skum som varer. Masse malt smak. Antydning av kaffe og sjokolade. Litt smør smak. Veldig god

Dark black/brown with an off tan head. Molasses and burnt toffee aroma. Black malt and molasses taste, very full, slight subdued alchoholic taste towards the end. Excellent beer!

UPDATED: FEB 25, 2004 Pours dark black/ruby with a thin tan head that quickly disappears. The sweet malt aroma presents a great roasted coffee note, with red apple, plum, molasses and maple. Medium watery lightly syrupy body with soft carbonation. The flavor is sweet, with coffee, chocolate, roast, licorice, black cherry, smoke, apple and molasses notes. Hints of astringency and alcohol dart in and out. Excellent. This one is always appealing.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
(Bottle BB 15/06/06) Aroma of roasted malty, coffee and light alcohol. Black colour and light brown, small size, rapidly almost fully diminishing head with fair lacing. Heavily roasted malty (almost burned), moderately bitter, licorice, coffee and fruity flavour. Softly carbonated, dry and light alcoholic (warming) palate. This is very delicious beer, which is a perfect late night drink! 13/05/06

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JAN 24, 2010 Now I was really looking forward to try this beer, and luckily found it in almost every grocery store in Poland. A dark brown, almost black colour with a beige head that leaves a nice lacing on the glass. The aroma is strong and pungent - dark malts, milk chocolate, dark caramel and fruity plum/cherry liquor. A lovely sweet coffee flavour with a not-so-pleasant metallic note. Really pronounced maltiness mingles with complex alcohol flavours. Coats your mouth and leaves a fine nutty aftertaste. The alcohol is well integrated with the sweetness and a pretty rough bitterness, that dries the finish when you wouldn’t expect it. Superb beer, I’m glad I still have a six-pack in the cellar. Re-rate: With a little age on it, the fruity notes become a lot more evident, the alcohol seems more aggressive and medicinal, overall a sharp impression. The carbonation dropped of as well. Better consumed fresh. [Scores for the first tasting]
