Thanks to xmarcnolanx for sharing this rarity. Pours dark brown with no head. The aroma has soy, cream, vanilla and dark caramel. It has a thicky chewy smooth body with no carbonation to be found. The flavor starts with soy and warming alcohol along with some vanilla, very roasted malt and a touch of oak. The finish is quite hot and has more soy. The alcohol gets in the way for me. As it warms some spice and fennel start showing up. Sammy (13013) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 28, 2009
Bottle from madmitch76 and his store and cellar in the U.K. Pours jet black with some reddish hue, virtually no head no lace. Aroma of a rich chocolate and spices, maybe coffee. An imperial porter more than a baltic porter. A tad above average mouthfeel. Declicious to the last drop,a very rich porter with chocolate, good coffee, and taste a bit aged. no sign of 16%.

Sampled at DØE Beerfestival 2009, Valby. Pours a black beer with no head. The aroma is licorice, chocolate and coffee. The flavor follows the nose. The palate leaves a bold body, and overall a good bold beer. omhper (25956) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - SEP 27, 2009
Bottled at Stockholm Beer Festival. Cloudy dark brown, minimal head. Meaty soy sauce aroma. Takes full bodied to the extreme. Very sweet withlots of caramel. Thick with lots of power and even more molasses. Syrupy finish. Too thick and raw. Needs a century or so to mature. oh6gdx (26485) - Vasa, FINLAND - SEP 27, 2009

Flavour is wood, sweet liquorices, ashes, burnt wet wood and some slight notes of dark fruits. Big liquorice, herbs and ashes in the finish. Very wellbalanced and hides the alcohol really well.
