This 9.4% hides its alcohol well. Nice blend of chocolate raisins and coffee in the flavor. The finish is surprisingly mild and sweet. Seems to be missing that something in the finish. The sweetness lingers with some vanilla as I drink it more.

So I have to admit, this was recommended to me by a guy at the grocery store that looked like he had already had one too many. Its 9.4%, a big 500ml bottle, and only $1.99! If you like porters you cant go wrong. You know I am glad that I gave him a listen, because I dont know if I would have tried it on my own. Now I have tried it a few times. The alcohol really shines through here, making this a good one to wind down the night. All of the traditional porter flavors are here, although this one goes heavy on the sweetness, which is a plus for me.

Pours out very dark brown, almost black. Off-white colored head that leaves small amounts of spotty lacing. In the smell I get molasses, sweet caramel, toffee, a bit of nuttiness, licorice, and just a small amount of roastiness. Taste has much of the same elements as the nose, but has a very nice creamy, yet at the same time soft, roasty finish. Soft carbonation, about medium levels with a luscious full body to back it up. This is 9.4%? I didnt get an alcohol burn or unpleasant alcohol in any way; this is just a very well made porter that I intend on getting much more of.

Not a bad porter, maybe a little too thick. Pours black with a light tan head that clings to the side before disipating. Aroma is that of dark malt and a hint of alcohol. taste is all dark malt and alcohol. Coffee overtones. Aftertaste lingers and is nice.

See through dark caramal brown with thin bubbly head. Aroma is sweet chocolate. Flavor is chocolate, sweet cocoa. Palate is smooth.

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.

I didn't take any extra notes when I tried this beer for the first time but I'm gonna try it again and update my comments. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Black like the name teills you. Chocolate and coffee (as expected). Some acidity but more than that I wouold say sweetness. The alcohol comes through but never too much. The only real downside is that it felt a little bit thin.

16.9 oz. bottle from Woodmans Madison Ar: Cola-like aroma with some dark chocolate. Different for a porter, but pleasant. Ap: Pours a dark brown-red with a 1" light cinnamon head. Very light for a porter. A bit of lace. T: Cola and a bit of smoky wood up front. The finish is chocolatey. No alcohol burn. P: Medium body with soft carbonation. O: Different for a porter, but enjoyable.

500ml. color is dark brown black with ruby highlights. milk chocolate on the the nose with a mild lactic aroma, by that i mean a slight sourness is detected. sweet lightly roasted malt is also present. body is thinner than i anticipated but it does feel round on the tongue. the intermingling of chocolate and vanilla malt sweetness and mild sourness give it an almost barrel aged finish. a roasty malt flavor and mild but noticeable bitterness provide a fine conclusion. high alcohol goes unnoticed. reminds me more of a dopplebock but i see some porter elements to this brew.
