33 cL bottle at home. Pours pitch black with a medium tan head. Aroma has quite some licorice, dark chocolate, alcohol and some molasses. Taste has molasses, licorice, some alcohol and dark chocolate. Over medium body, medium carbo. Bit too sweet and alcoholic for me. eduardovl (1490) - SWITZERLAND - NOV 2, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 16, 2014 330ml bottle served in a snifter glass.
A: Pours a dark brown color forming a medium and thin bubbled tan head. Low retention but with a thin layer remains forever on the top of the liquid. A lot of spotty and molasses lacings are left in the glass.
S: Strong notes of roasted malts and wood. Whiskey. Dark dry fruits, caramel, dark chocolate and flowery hops.
T: Slightly sweet upfront. Roasted malts, dark dry fruits, oak, caramel, dark chocolate and coffee. A little bit sour. Balanced bitterness. It does not feel like 93 IBU.
M: Heavy molasses body. Medium to low carbonation. Roasted caramel aftertaste.
O: Great drinkability. De Molen’s masterpiece. k0mpsa (3160) - Tuusula, FINLAND - NOV 1, 2014
Bottle from öllepood nr2, pärnu. Black color, brown head. Aroma is roasty, coffee, chocolate. Taste is roasted malts, coffee, rye bread, sweet cognac notes. Prufrockstar (2259) - Moscow, Idaho, USA - NOV 1, 2014
Bottle thanks to bytemesis. Pours clear dark brown with short-lived frothy tan head. Aroma brings marshmallows, molasses, dark fruit. Initially there was a strong roast/borderline ashy undertone, but that was gone by the end of the glass. Taste is sweet, with soft roast bitterness in the finish. Palate: medium+ body, smooth texture, average carbonation. Overall: Tasty beer -- appropriately on the softer/sweeter side compared to the other big stouts I’ve had from them.

one I’ve wanted to try for a while but not quite as expected. Oxidised with some older fullers vintage notes. Fruity, weetabix, minty, cocoa. Sweet, heavy, definitely baltic porter based. Some metallic notes, long minty finish.
Bue à quelques reprises, probablement trop chaud pour la fixer sur ratebeer, voilà je le fais. Noix de coco, chocolat, caramel et autres sucres accostent massivement dans ma bouche. Les houblons ne sont que spectre, la chaleur d’alcool volcanique, j’aime bien ce monstre. rxeight (3319) - Illinois, USA - OCT 26, 2014
12 oz bottle dated 05/04/12. Pitch black with a touch of sand color head. Aroma is a tonne of euro malt. Taste is licorice and molasses. Very roasty. Hides the 11% pretty well. Decent, but not as impressive as all the barrel aged ones I’ve had from them. Zakoon (488) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 26, 2014
33cl bottle @ home. Pours black with a quick fading beige head. Aroma is roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, alcohol and molasses. Flavour is sweet and light bitter. Full bodied, soft carbonation. Finish is long, medium sweet with coffee and roasted malt. Bobhund (154) - - OCT 17, 2014
Drucken på Norrlands Nation, Uppsala. Mycket fin och lagom tunn. Lite lätt kaffe, tunn kropp med tanke på alkoholstyrkan.

I am not the huge fan of porters but this one didn’t taste like one and was more like a smoked stout
