A decent Baltic porter. Balanced, I would like a bit more bitterness edge but still a good drinkable porter. Dark coloured, fizzy disappearing head. Middling mouthfeel. Lots of chocolate.
An extra in a trade, I think Beerenberger. Hophead22 (2879) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - MAR 30, 2013
12oz bottle. Rating #95. Pretty damn good beer, nice meld of flavors. It wasn’t quite as thick as I would of personally liked, but a quality effort. (2617) TH28 (470) - - MAR 23, 2013
UPDATED: APR 12, 2013 Appearance is deep brown with a nice tan foam cap. Licorice and raisin are dominant on the aroma, with a bit of molasses and brown sugar. Taste starts with a sweet deep caramel malt, with hints of chocolate, molasses and brown sugar on the back end. Body is medium to light for some porters. Finishes with the slightest hint of chocolate, and some warmth from the alcohol. jebert (500) - Watertown, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 21, 2013
Pours a deep dark mahogany with a small caramel colored head. Aroma is malt with a hint of chocolate. Very creamy with thick viscosity on the palate. The taste is chock full of malt, chocolate, coffee with a hint of sweet molasses. Not hoppy. This is a quality beer full of flavor that can be enjoyed alone or paired with nuts and/or cheeses.

This pours a dark brown color with a slight light brown head. The aroma gives it that scent like it’s been aged in a sherry barrel with a mild fruitiness of plums. The texture is smooth and creamy. There are lots of complex roasted and smoky flavors. Finishes ever so crisp. Not too bad but there’s also room for improvement.

Pours a dark brown with small head. Aroma of raisin, plum, and sherry. Flavors include some toffee, caramel, fruit (aforementioned raisin), some chocolate and licorice. Nice, warming beer; a good winter choice. hfmejias (1283) - Marshall, Minnesota, USA - MAR 5, 2013
12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Dark brown with little white head. Aroma of raisins, roasted malts and caramel. Taste of malts nice bitterness (just enough) well balanced with hints of chocolate and caramel. It starts quite sweet but it gets this nice bitterness towards the end which makes it very drinkable and enjoyable. Very decent. calebrum (40) - Saint cloud, Minnesota, USA - MAR 2, 2013
Very heavy and fruity. The best way I can describe it is... it’s like drinking raisin beer. Mittenator (1612) - Michigan, USA - FEB 27, 2013
Bottle. Dark copper with tan head. Strawberry, raspberry and caramel aromas. Berry fruits with a slightly sour finish. fiulijn (20993) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 22, 2013
Dark brown color, close to black. Aroma of dark caramel and animal, light phenol. Dark caramel flavor, some oxidization, cabbage, light malt sourness; correct bitterness; roasted nuts in the end.
