.33l bottle at Belgrade tasting. Thanks Balkanlasse! Rich red-brown, smallish white head. Sweeter rich porter. Rich and middle body. Sweet milk chocolate. Red-amber alc, sweet full body. Nice! Would love to try an aged one of these some time. alexsdad06 (10817) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - JUN 18, 2014
Bottle at home from early backlog notes 07. Pours dark brown in color with a small creamy beige head. The aroma and flavor have mild roast, Bakers chocolate, a hint of dark fruit with mild nutty character, thin compared to American examples. KansaiBeerLvrs (5373) - Kyoto, JAPAN - NOV 2, 2014
Bottle picked up in Sweden, after having the excellent Synebrychoff Koff Porter I was expecting more from this. The color was pitch black but the body was a tad light. The flavor was solid but not as impressive as some other baltic porters I had during my 2013 trip around the Baltic. A good cheap(for Sweden) porter but nothing jaw-dropping. sturmthis (1195) - Bavaria, GERMANY - NOV 2, 2014
12oz bottle. Dark brown color with one finger white head. Roasted malt and slight cocoa aroma. Sweet taste of cocoa and dark fruits. Ends dry. Good. stevoj (5586) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 20, 2015
Bottle from Boise Coop. Right in the wheelhouse for a classic porter. Dark, sweet and malty, pour has nice fluffy head which leaves streaky lacing. Nose is sweet malt, leading into flavors of molasses, peat and sweet malts. Classic porter.

Supposed to be consumed at room temperature.
It just didn't do it for me. Cool bottle, tho. jonas (8035) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - JUL 29, 2004
Roasted nutty nose.
Opaque brown, big foamy brown head.
Coffee, sugar and nut flavors.
Creamy mouthfeel. wilkie (1208) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - AUG 16, 2004
Bottle. Very dark black appearance with a creamy tan head. Has roasty aroma of chocolate and coffee. Flavor is roasty. Has initial flavor of chocolate/coffee with a saccharin aftertaste that is a little too sweet. kujo9 (1095) - North Ridgeville, Ohio, USA - DEC 1, 2004
Bottle: Very disappointing almost non existant thin beige bubbles; dark brown body w/ some ruby highlights. Some toffee aroma with a strong sherry. Possibly past it’s prime. Light hints of chocolate, carmel, and vinous notes. Some brown sugary & more chocolate as it is chilled, like chocolate chip cookie dough. Maybe I’m goofy with this one, and I’m not bashing this beer, but it also smells like Purina dog food a little bit. Flavor is moderately roasty, chocolate and nutty toasty malts. Light winey vinous notes mid palate; toasty finish & aftertaste along w/ some sugary sweetness, molasses & hints of light rum. Lighter body, low carbonation w/ a dry m/f. I think this was a little past it’s prime as I seem to remember it being better the last time I had it a few years ago. I’ll re rate with a fresh bottle if it improves.

1997 vintage: Poured coffee brown, no head, and thin. Chocolate and roasted nuts in aroma and flavor...bitter long finish. Disappointed by its thin texture and feel in the mouth.
