COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
OG 1108, FG 1026, Color 388.7 EBC, Chinook and Saaz hops. Bitterness 93.5 EBU.

Stronger version of a Baltic Porter. Comparable with an Imperial Stout but without the heavily roasted malt character. This created a soft beer with strong hops in the finish.

De Molen ci lascia sbigottiti davanti a un calice pieno di un liquido scuro e molto denso, quasi cremoso. Il grado scivola via, liberandoci da qualsiasi sensazione di pesantezza, obliato dalle note torrefatte e cioccolatose, chiuse da un finale luppolato indimenticabile. Con una sacher, con una crostata di mirtilli, da sola: questa birra lascia il segno nella memoria. Superlativa!

Haslinger (916) - The World of Beer, Texas, USA - NOV 24, 2013
12 ounce bottle shared with kegbear, pours a dark dark brown almost black with zero head. Smells like sweet licorice. Good dark roasted malt mouthfeel with a bit of anise. Almost chocolatey finish. Very very delicious. Would buy again

Pours opaque black, slighty dark brown, very low carbonation. Thick light brown head that vanishes to around 5mm. Aroma : caramel,sugar, very nice. Taste is round with almost no bitterness. Palate is silky-smooth. A nice classic beer in the genre.

Taste is Cooked vegetables, bready, wet cardboard, caramel, toffee, and bready. Light mouthfeel with soft carbonation. Bleh.

Pour out of 375 mL bottle, dark black pour with tan head, aroma brought notes of dark chocolate cardboard, hints of earth, coffee, slight earth, weird dark fruit. Taste is a mix of dark chocolate, dark fruit, hints of oak, vanilla, lots of cardboard, hints of earth. Ok.

Un peu huileux en bouche, pais avec carbonation faible, cest aussi un peu vineux. Trs bonne et aussi avec lalcool trs bien cach.

houblonchien (89) - CANADA - NOV 20, 2013
rich aroma - coffee,vanilla, banana, chocolate, alcohol. Complex flavour; sweet with a touch of bitterness with pine notes - chocolate, caramel. Mouth feel is almost buttery. Somewhat hot. This is a very distinctive porter.

morri (277) - NORWAY - NOV 20, 2013
330ml bottle from Vinmonopolet. Pours a big light brown head which turns into a creamy upper layer. Medium lacing. Opaque dark brown body, almost black. Aroma is complex. I sense coffee, liquorice, dark chocolate, soy sauce, toffee and toasted bread. Quite sweet in the nose. Sharp and bitter on the tongue at first, then becomes sugar-like. The sweet aftertaste lasts a loooong time. Excellent palate, very creamy. Im not usually into porters, but this is one is fantastic!
