durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - SEP 2, 2012
On tap at the Thirsty Monk in Asheville. Rich, nearly black pour with a tan head. Nose of toasted nuts, complex coffee, chocolate, toffee, huge fruits--plums, prunes, raisins. So much going on here. A big, big beer, but not boozy or overwhelming. Palate was lighter than expected for the ABV as well. So tasty.

YantarCoast (1068) - Moscow, RUSSIA - JAN 18, 2017
355ml bottle dated 14 September 2015, bought at Bliznetsy in Moscow. Pours pitch black with a small dark brown head. Aroma is cognac, dark sweet cherries, and roastiness. Taste is very liqueurish, like cognac, espresso and brown sugar. A very intense and complex beer, for sure.

MelvinKalksma (1237) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 17, 2017

Aroma:
Medium/heavy aroma of malts, caramel, dark fruit, chocolate, mocha and roasted malts.

Appearance:
Opaque black beer with a medium dark brown head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts medium/heavy sweet with malts, caramel, dark fruit, chocolate and mocha; ends slightly bitter and dry with roasted malts.

Overall:
This beer is intense, complex and balanced. Great roasted beer with some sort of brown sugar added to make it a Porter. Amazing appearance and flavour, together with a great aroma and palate. Has no really bad aspects.

minihame2 (536) - Oulu, FINLAND - JAN 13, 2017
Pours thick and black with a nice, creamy, dark tan head. Aroma is malty, some roastedness, raisins, a bit of coffee. Taste is slightly sweet in the beginning, more of bitterness towards end with roasted malts and coffee. Oily mouthfeel with above medium carbonation. It’s really good, thank you based god.

mjs (6739) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 13, 2017
(Bottle, 0.355 l - batch #013, from Alko Arkadia, 20170113) The beer poured black. Its head was medium sized and lightly brown. Aroma had burnt malts, dark chocolate, cocoa and sweetness. Palate was full bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were burnt malts, coffee, dark chocolate, ash, sweetness and bitterness. Aftertaste had burnt malts, chocolate and bitterness. A well done burnt brew that hid its high ABV and wasn’t too sweet.

Bulk_Carrier (4236) - Lake Champlain, Vermont, USA - JAN 7, 2017
Poured into a snifter, this had a black color with a thin finger’s worth of white to off white foamy head that quickly dies off. Moderate stringy lace. The aroma takes on a nice balance between the roast, the sweet and the bitter. Coffee beans, chocolate malts and some marshmallow riding in nicely. The flavor leans towards the roast first while bringing the sweetness in for a great balance. Sly roasty to bitter to semi-sweet aftertaste running into the finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fair sessionable to sipping quality about it. Mild carbonation. Some light slickness. Overall, damn nice beer for a cold Winter’s night. Definitely would have again.

Pullo @ Alko. Kaatuu snifteriin sysimustana ja noin sormen paksuisella katoavalla vaahdolla. Hyvin monipuolinen tuoksu tarjoilee tummia hedelmiä (pääasiassa luumua), vanilijaa, soijamaisuutta, lakritsia ja maamaisuutta, kaikkia tasaisesti hedelmäisyyden erottuessa hieman joukosta. Vaahtokarkkikin tulee hieman mieleen. Maku jatkaa monipuolista linjaa: lakritsia, puumaisuutta, vaahtokarkkia, luumua, soijaa ja maamaisuutta. Puu tulee nyt hyvin vahvana mukaan ja laittaa vanilijan kanssa miettimään, onkohan tätä pidetty tynnyrissäkin tai ainakin heitetty lastuja mukaan. Suutuntuma on hyvin paksu, makeahko sekä täyteläinen ja tuntuu melko humaloidulta. Upean monipuolinen imperial porter, jossa päällimmäisenä jää mieleen luumuisuus ja muu tumma hedelmä, vanilija sekä lakritsi. Mutta löytyy paljon muutakin, loistava tekele.

willisread (2950) - Owensboro, Kentucky, USA - JAN 5, 2017
Bottle from J’s. Pours a deep brown to light black with a half finger of head that dissipates quickly. Big marshmallow nose with milk chocolate, ovaltine and some treacle notes with a touch of peach. Fruity and vinous on the palate with more chocolate and marshmallow notes. Medium bodied with a smooth rich treacle flavor. Alcohol is hidden so well. Smooth finish that lingers.
