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.

UPDATED: DEC 17, 2016 Thanks Jan (from De Bierkoning) for hand delivering this Bottle #101. What an amazing porter; aroma was roasted malt with slight Smokey flavors, strong licorice, more alcohol aroma as it warmed. I had plenty of frothy brown head after the initial pour. Taste was outstanding for this porter; full-bodied with plenty of bitter chocolate, coffee, slight tobacco flavor with an oily feel; very drinkable considering how high the alcohol level. Can’t wait to get some more of this stuff!

Wygląd wyglądem - klasycznie, ciemno brunatne, piana jasnobeżowa. W aromacie bez szaleństw - owoce i trochę czekolady. Nie oszałamia, klasycznie porterowo. W smaku podobnie - głównie owoce, trochę kakao, dość gładko i słodko. Przyjemnie. Klasycznie, bez udziwnień. Bardzo dobre piwo, dość konkretne - w znaczeniu niewodniste.

Towey1989 (3438) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 20, 2018
Bottle at Den Engel, Leek. Pours a black colour with medium beige head. Aroma of dark chocolate, some roasted malts, leather, slight fig, raisin, plum, a little liquorice and subtle caramel. Taste of dark chocolate, roasted malts, some fig, raisin, slight plum, liquorice, a little coffee, biscuit, a hint of vanilla and subtle leather. Medium to full bodied and moderate carbonation. A dry, chocolate and liquorice bitterness in the finish. No trace of alcohol for me, dark chocolate and soft roasted malts with slight dark fruits and biscuit. Rich but extremely well made.

DonGregorio (619) - POLAND - DEC 21, 2017
Bottle. Very dark brown beer with small beige head. Aroma of dark chocolate, raisins, plums, roasted malts, light licorice and caramel. Taste is medium+ sweet and medium to heavy bitter, dark chocolate, raisins, plums, light licorice, roasty with long bitter finish. Medium to full body, oily texture, soft to average carbonation. Very good, flavourful, a bit too roasty.

Scol (22) - Chisinau, MOLDOVA - DEC 21, 2017
UPDATED: JAN 20, 2018 Dark brown, almost no head. Prunes, chocolate in aroma. Full body. Dark fruits, chocolate, roasted barley in taste. Sweet and at the same time bitter aftertaste - seems from both roasted barley and hops. Signs of alcohol, but not too much. Very good

kaserov (1110) - Oviedo, SPAIN - DEC 4, 2017
Color negro con capa de espuma marrón de tres dedos de grosor (grumosa y de buena retención). Carbonatación suave. Textura oleosa. Aroma a pasas, chocolate, chocolate con leche, recuerdos de vainilla y mantequilla, melaza, licor. En boca hay mucho chocolate, chocolate con leches, pasas, melaza, reminiscencias de café y vainilla, caramelo, frutos secos y licor al final del trago. Toques de algo similar a bourbon e incluso recuerdos de vino tinto por momentos. Postgusto licoroso, también chocolate y ceniza. Compleja y disfrutable hasta decir basta. He necesitado tres botellas para apañar algo similar a una crítica.

oberschlesier (216) - Kattowitz, UPPER SILESIA, - DEC 3, 2017
Aroma: anise, oxidation (dry fruits). Taste: the same as in the aroma and then bitterness. Average head, low carbonation. I don't like anise, but this beer is generally rather ok.

4.5
Evilkniamhel (1049) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 3, 2017
Flaske fra vinmonopolet. Ujennomsiktig mørk brun med rødt. Lukter av rosiner, sjokoladefudge, melasse, ristet brod, toffee, svart kirsebær. Smaker av mandelkake, mer rosiner, karamel, malt brød.

Icedwarf (1886) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - DEC 2, 2017
Fles 10.1 ABV. Ben niet zeker of dit hetzelfde is maar ik denk van wel. Etiket is iets gewijzigd. Zwart bier zonder schuim. Smaak is licht zoet en krachtig met iets van bittere chokolade, koffie en karamel. Erg goed.
