Sold as Czarny Boss Porter in Ermelo. Deep dark brown color, almost opague. Coffee aroma with a touch of caramel. Just below medium bodied. Roasted malt, coffee, molasses, hints of apple. Likeable but somewhat grainy and sweet. No first class quality. kenb (1102) - Oregon, USA - AUG 14, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 4, 2006 16 oz bottle. Dark Brownish/black with a hint of red. Bubbly head that leaves a whole lotta lace. Fruity chocolate aroma. Mocha/chocolate and raisin flavor, lots of toasted caramel malt. Creamy and full bodied.
Sweet finish that is a bit fleeting but very nice while it lasts. Very little hint of the 9%+ alcohol. Very very smooth and very straightforward. Very easy drinking. 2 of these and you would be butt-faced. And it is so easy to drink, you could down 2 of them in a heartbeat, highly dangerous and highly tastey, so be careful and be responsible, lol...Man i love a great Porter. This is going to be a new favorite in my cellar! Smooth, smooth, smooth. Over the top hopheads need not apply, as this is for heavy malt lovers only, if you enjoy honey flavored espresso you will love this liquid meal. maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - AUG 9, 2006
Bottled – GBBF. A blackish beer with a red hue. The aroma is wonderful with lots of licquorice and caramel as well as alcohol and soy sauce. The taste is full and has all the characteristics of the aroma beautifully balanced. Very very drinkable and tasty. Truly delicious and my beer of the Festival. harrisoni (19341) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2006
Bottle at GBBF 2006. I hadn’t 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.

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 it’s just average, and that’s probably why it’s so inexpensive. $1.50 for a 16.9 oz, 9.4% ABV, imported beer... that’s bargain basement pricing right there. originalfatkid (3) - Washington, USA - JUL 14, 2006 does not count
