This beer has a mild aroma consisting of the fragrances of malt, yeast, and caramel. It is a brown solution with a light brown head and good lacing. This moderately thin bodied beer is dry and a tad bitter. The nutty caramel taste gives way to a sour nut finish. zhora (4) - Kyiv, UKRAINE - MAR 11, 2006 does not count
Excellent porter with brilliant aftertaste. Be sure to buy one that bottled in St. Petersburg. bmanning (142) - Holly Springs, North Carolina, USA - FEB 25, 2006
Pours a coca-cola brown with a large, light brown head. Has a strong, malty aroma with lots of molasses, dates, coffee, caramel, almond, and floral hops. The flavor is initially sweet and thin, but has a delicous bitter and smoky finish. The finish is by far the best feature of this beer - very complex with plenty of dark fruits, chocolate, and licorice. It feels too thin on the palate, and has a watery texture, although it is somewhat creamy. Overall, this is a pretty good porter, not great, but I’d try it again. maniac (3800) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - FEB 24, 2006
Dark black color with a medium light head. Aroma of molassas and roasted malt. Flavor of roasted malt with hints of coffee. Numenor (871) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - FEB 24, 2006
Deep brown body with a medium volume brown head. Nice dark fruit aroma in addition to the mollasses and malts. Heavy coffee and bacon flavors, malts are very accented. Clean ending, very nice porter.

Looked great, but this thing was an oxidized mess. Flavor was vegetably and not really very porter like at all after it warmed... only slight hints of coffee and molasses. Much more pepper (vegetable), rice, slight czech hopping. Magjayran (1379) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - FEB 14, 2006
From a bottle. Pours a rather attractive black color with a thick and fluffy tan head. Aroma reminds me of artificially sweetened molasses product. Watery start to this beer with a harsh, imitation molasses aftertaste that produces a cringe not unlike my first taste of cough syrup. Looks thick, feels thin. All around nasty.

Pours deep blackish/brown with light creamy tan head. Size wasn’t great on the head, and it did dissipate - a minus for porters/stouts in my opinion. Not much to smell, though mine was slightly colder than need be. The Best Before Date was exceeded by 4 months exactly (to the day). But the taste was quite good. Not so hoppy like the description offers, but quite smooth with light coffee, hazelnut, and cream/creamy chocolate flavors. Very nice for a mild/calm brew. anders37 (27658) - Malmö, SWEDEN - FEB 12, 2006
Bottle. Black colour with a tan head. Roasted malty flavor with some hints of coffee. Roasted flavor with molasses and hints of coffee and chocolate. A little thin roasted finish. ehhdayton (1188) - USA - FEB 10, 2006
The aroma is of roasted coffee and chocolate malts. The beer pours a deep black with a tan head. There is a slight coffee and chocolate flavor and the finish is fairly mild.
