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 wasn’t bad. stouby (4666) - Holbæk, DENMARK - JAN 22, 2006
Bottle, at Benny.
Dark brown with a light brown head. Aroma moderate malty (caramel, roasted). Flavor moderate to heavy sweet. Light to medium body, oily, soft carbonated (a thin body compared to the alcohol)! BeerandBlues2 (13323) - Escondido, California, USA - MAY 4, 2006
500 mL bottle from jjpm74. Pours very near opaque with a patchy tan head. Aroma is sweet caramel malt (cookie, meal), milk chocolate and faint floral hops with a vinous nose. Medium sweet chocolate malt and caramel flavor, medium to low bitterness and acidity, smooth malt finish. Dark bodied and smooth palate. KingpinIPA (841) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 12, 2006
Dark color. Smell of coffee and sweet chocolate. I am very surprised on the taste. It tastes like roasted coffee and chocolate with a nice bitterness at the end. This is a beer that I would drink again. yngwie (17053) - 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)

Bottle poured black with a medium sized off white head.
Brown sugar and molasses aroma with a good medium body, sweet malty flavor is almost a bit to sweet for me.
Became more roasty as it warmed..still to sweet. CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUL 6, 2005
Pours a rich, nearly opaque dark brown with a thick, frothy, and well-lacing light tan head. Has a mildly tart and roasty aroma with some dry caramel, but lacking that dark fruity complexity usually found in Baltic porters. Starts sugary and sweet without much complexity or balance for that matter. Sticky caramel and sugary, mild bitterness and chocolate throughout, leading to a slightly warming finish that hides the alcohol fairly well. This seems like it could use a little brewing finesse to give more complexity and less of a sugar-water character. ThomasE (5174) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 11, 2005
Dark brown colour with a small light brown head. Light roasted malty aroma with hints of a dark fruit sweetness. Bitter flavor with some dried fruit and a faint alcohol note. 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. 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 I’m 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.
