ontario102 (794) - Boise, Idaho, USA - NOV 21, 2005
Pours with a sparse, rocky head; nice licorice, port, and burnt sugar nose; smooth roasty maltiness throughout, chocolatey grainy sweetness; viscous and sweet, a bit too sweet; fairly alcoholic finish

grant (842) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - NOV 19, 2005
Nearly opaque dark brown. Faint, surprisingly light head. This sounded like a crappy novelty beer from some shitty American brewery, but Im glad I decided to look at the label. Aroma is quite doppelbocky - with chocolate, figs, raisins and porto components. Some vanilla and glints of pipe tobacco. Flavor is initially quite nice - more vanilla and chocolate, but the alcohol quickly burns through that fog. Fades out to sweet instant coffee and a rather harsh roastiness. Palate is syrupy and rather flat, despite high-enough carbonation levels. Coffee with tootsie rolls and vanilla. Still, an interesting find.

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - NOV 18, 2005
Deep mahogany with a fleeting beige head. Notes of sweet caramel, prunes, dark chocolate, and port. Full and syrupy mouth. The flavor was on the sweet side. Lacked balance but wasnt bad.

ChazyRPh (583) - Chazy, New York, USA - OCT 21, 2005
bottle, filled almost to the top of the neck! Roasty malt aroma, some chocolate and some dark pit fruit presence also. Some booziness noted in the aroma also. Dark brown/deep garnet pour with a tan head that leaves a slight film on the surface of this beer. Thin mouthfeel. Rather fruity, in context of a porter, almost barleywineish to start, maybe an aged barleywine...no wait, I got it...Port wine. I taste port wine. The middle is where the roasted malts come to life, with a nice roastiness to finish. A very different baltic porter than what I have tried before. It is not offensive, but not as good as the others I have tried, most notably Koff Porter.

A fantastic beer and one worth coming back for. Nice aroma with a full, smooth flavor (just a slight chocolate) and the perfect acidity.

Nothing astonishing here. At %9.4 it gets the job done and is affordable, but, despite being fairly rich, doesnt have much character.

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - OCT 9, 2005
Raisins, walnut, chocolate and some dried cherries in the aroma. Reddish brown/black with a frothy, but thin head. Huge raisin blast in the fore followed by another huge blast of black licorice and then mild marzipan notes in the middle. Finish wafts on through with dry black licorice notes and a chalky raisin/licorice/burnt aftertaste. This is very nice.

Veer (362) - Landskrona, SWEDEN - SEP 28, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 8, 2005 Cherry black, extremely small yellowish white head. Smells of raisins, alcohol, malt and smoke. Is this raisin-ale? Extremely sweet, some bitterness. Quite good. Simple, fresh and slimy.
