Thin porter-typical head, fishy aluminum aroma. Burnt malt flavor, tangy finish. Below average, despite appealing appearance.

Cerveja russa. Forte. Cheiro muito bom, torrado, suavemente adocicado, malte e chocolate, tons de alcool bem encaixado. Negra, com uma espuma cremosa de boa formao ambar. Aveludada, suave caramelo e chocolate no sabor. Gros torrados presente. Notas soltas de alcool. Retrogosto torrado e bom amargor.

Black pour, only lets hints of ruby show through good light. Huge light tan head. Aroma of dry chocolate and malts. Flavor is robust bitter chocolate, roasty malts, alcohol. Long bitter chocolate finish. Pretty decent brew.

Bottle. Very dark brown to nearly black with frothy off-white head. Aroma of dark malts and dark fruit with a bit of sweetness. Flavor of dark roasted malt, black cherries and raisins with that same sweetness. Good mouthfeel. Not too heavy and clean. I liked this a lot.

Appearance: A dark brown, possibly black color. Very opaque. No way of seeing through this one. Not much head, but I was trying to avoid it. Smell: Sweet and malty. No hops to speak of, but a very pleasing molasses aroma accompanies the malt. Taste: Molasses suspicions have been confirmed. Its sweet and caramel-y and not at all bitter. A slight toasty taste, but hidden behind the sweetness. Mouthfeel: Full-bodied, very smooth. Chewy and satisfying. Drinkability: Good, but I probably wouldnt have a whole lot in one sitting just because of the very strong flavors. That being said, I think its delicious.

Barely transparent, just light enough to let a ray of light through. Intense maltiness and smoke on the nose. Deep chocolate character in the flavor, along with residual sweetness and alcohol, with a long, anise finish. My first beer in the style but Im already impressed with the depth of flavor.

keoki182 (305) - West Bend, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 2, 2007
Pours a very dark brown with a dark tan/light brown head that soon dissappears to a mere brown lacing. Very artificial cocoa aroma. Flavor also pretty weak overall, tastes more like a brown ale than a porter. Definitely the type of beer I usually go for, but I really cant recommend it over others of its class.
