The pour was a bit thin for a porter with such a great smell. Roasty, chocolate, and coffee came to mind while drinking this brew. The taste was similar with a hint of coffee and vanilla. Not bad, just not great. I really wish it was thicker for the mouthfeel. nearbeer (5373) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 28, 2009
500 ml. Nearly opaque mahogany with a small, lasting ring of creamy foam. Sweet aroma of caramel, butterscotch, graham cracker and chocolate. Flavor is a tad less sweet: graham cracker, caramel and chocolate with a light char and ash finish. Medium-heavy body is a bit watery and smoothly carbonated.

#2000 Cookout. Sample from a bottle shared by Suttree. Dark brown-black, tan head. Big roasty, fruity aroma. Taste is licorice, anise, burnt malt. dogfighter (5) - USA - JUN 26, 2010 does not count
Even though I’ve given this guy a low rating, these BOSS beers are still fun as hell in the long run. Tastes of bittersweet chocolate and some roast. I also detect rye malt, but that could all be in my head. The best Boss thus far.

16.9 oz. bottle from Woodman’s 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.

Half liter bottle from The Caboose. The porter poured a deep black with tan head. I tasted licorice and some sweetness. This porter was very smooth. The higher alcohol is well disguised. This may be my first polish beer. The medium body lager had soft carbonation. I was able to taste this on Christmas eve 2011 with #2 son. natejgood (508) - Bozeman, Montana, USA - APR 5, 2012
Pours a fairly clear dark brown with no head. Very dark, but not quite black. Aroma is of sweet licorice, barley and malt. Flavor of molasses, chocolate and wheat. A bit fuzzy in the mouth, but not too bad. Brewbie (479) - New York, USA - DEC 1, 2012
500 ml bottle. ruby colored pour, very thin tan head. dusty cocoa aroma, taste. wow very different first taste, heavy on the chocolate, sweet. very roasty finish chicagobears (469) - Elk Grove Village, Illinois, USA - DEC 20, 2013
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. monk191 (1959) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 10, 2015
A good, malty porter. Pours a deep red-black with a tan head. Smells malty, with some plum, marshmallow. Taste is quite malty, vanilla and plum, raisin. Sweet finish. Had in the bottle.
