500 ml. bottle shared. Purchased @ ABC Beers. Black, patchy moldy-looking mocha head. Nose is light licorice, syrup, dash molasses, engine oil & thick honey sweetness, quite syrupy, slick, sweet in a strongly herbal way. Taste is light herbal bitterness coupled with huge herbal, slightly industrial, slick syrupy sweetness, burned herbs, light anise, black licorice, honey sweet, quite a bit of molasses. Slick, touch industrial goopy & strongly syrupy body. Herbal, licorice, anise qualities of these are potentially divisive. Overal this is a surprisingly nice industrial offering, there seem to be a few surprisingly nice Baltic Porters floating around still in that part of the world from industrialized breweries. One can do little wrong with this one, quite pleasant. BlackBeerPG (898) - Darien, Illinois, USA - NOV 10, 2015
Taste has coffee and chocolate malt.
Very dark brown, semi opaque, complex bold coffee bean semi sweet.
Full body, thick tan head with little lace. A bit of a kick. Turtles (2968) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 17, 2015

Bottle: Deep brown pour with a large, foamy brown head. It’s sweet, lots of dark fruit and molasses fill the air. Some dark chocolate and a little bit fruity. Taste is distinctly sweet... plenty of dark pitted fruits, more molasses, and chocolate. If there was a little more roasted malt to balance out the heavy sweetness this would be a winner for sure. As is a little too sweet for my taste. Maakun (6453) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - AUG 26, 2015

Bottle 50cl, a brown beer with low off white head. Nose is on caramel and toasted caramel, with touch of plum. Aroma is on a creamy toasted caramel, biscuit and chocolate, quite sweet, blond caramel notes too, light spaces, plum notes at the finish, light vanilla notes.
