Bottle at GBBF 2006. I hadnít realised the strength of this. Very deep ruby colour with some nice raisins and a bit of caramel. Bit milky. Amazing dark dried fruit in the mouth. Prunes, raisins, currants. Smooth and rather lovely. Some burntness. Rich. Like Christmas cake. Egon (478) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - JUL 22, 2006
A black liquid with a whitish foam. Tastes of chocolate and caramel. Alittle sweet from the alcohol? No strong alcohol taste for being over nine percent abv. Quite heavy. with a strong body. greenhorn1 (850) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - JUL 21, 2006
Pours a deep mahogany, with a very burnt chocolate aroma and high carbonation. It has the same flavor with lots of coffee aftertaste. A bit too sweet for me, but not a bad beer. Surprisingly, it is hard to notice the high alcohol. fishonmyplane (505) - Newington, Connecticut, USA - JUL 21, 2006
In my opinion this porter is far too sweet. It tastes like a homebrew that has too much unfermented sugar left in the bottle.
But as a positive, the beer has a good appearance. And you hardly taste the alcohol, despite the high ABV. Overall itís just average, and thatís probably why itís so inexpensive. $1.50 for a 16.9 oz, 9.4% ABV, imported beer... thatís bargain basement pricing right there. originalfatkid (3) - Washington, USA - JUL 14, 2006 does not count
Great roasted flavor - good, easy drinking porter. Not too sweet. Nice head with dark maroon color. Nice smooth finish.

This was a very sweet and dark beer and not perfect for the Pepporni pizza. This should have been more for a light food or a food like pasta with a cramy sauce. The beer was a dark borwn with a super sweet flavor and a high alochol content. Loved the flavors and the beer. blankboy (7662) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 2, 2006
Bottle shared with HogTownHarry & tupalev -- courtesy of Thaichile. Pours a clear dark ruby-brown with a large diminishing light-brown head. Aroma mostly of sweet malt with some nuts, dark fruit and cola. Sweet malty flavour, somewhat sugary with some roastiness and a burnt aftertaste. Bodyís a little thin. Not bad but it didnít do much for me. yngwie (17038) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 1, 2006
Bottled. Reddish, dark brown with a beige head. Roasted aroma with fruitiness, pear, and some alcohol. Quite weak aroma, and quite weak flavor, with chocolate and coffee dominating. It has some alcohol in the finish, but it is in general well hidden. Quite pleasant beer. (060616)
