Bottle shared with HogTownHarry, tupalev & jerc -- courtesy of HogTownHarry. Vintage 1998. Pours a dark brown/black with a spare light brown head. Strong roasted and caramel malt aroma along with chocolate, alcohol and molasses. Roasty flavour also consisted of caramel and a touch of chocolate. Smooth and creamy, it hides the 7.2% quite well. I really liked it!

Pour opaque brown with a big brow head that lasts forever. Aroma is on the light side, but roast, prunes, and dark chocolate are noticable. Too drink it is like drinking carbonated chocolate milk. Quite smooth with subtle carbonation. Malt sweetness and hop bitterness are balance very well.

Dark brown with a brown head. Very roasty aroma, somewhat smoky. Lots of roasted barley flavor. Chocolate and some caramel sweetness present. Finishes with a good astringency on the tongue. Medium bodied.

Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 29, 2005
Bottle, thanks Harry. Black pour, small tan head. Mild acidity and chocolate in aroma. Thin mouthfeel. Really acidic taste, roasted as well - a nice porter balance. I found it even too thin for the style though. Strong lingering roasted chocolate in finish. A pretty decent but not mind blowing porter that aged decently.

UPDATED: AUG 24, 2005 Bottle (330ml - dated 1998) shared with blankboy, GregClow, jerc at tupalevs domicile - provided by me from my Premiere haul. Poured a sinister black, with a small medium-brown head. Aroma of dark roasted malt, strong coffee, a bit of sour milk, alcohol, essence of various nutmeats and a little wheat-beer ashiness. Flavour of prune juice, dark roasted malts - mustiness & old barrel fire ashes. Oily and creamy mouthfeel, but disappointingly weak-bodied, a little metallic harshness in the finish. Maybe a little stale? Still a nice porter.

UPDATED: DEC 7, 2005 1998 VintageRated December 2005. Black body, small creamy dark khaki head. Initial impression of the aroma is dry kitty litter, which thankfully does not return. Chocolate malted milk quality to it, with muted raisins and dark fruit. Flavour is moderatley vinuous but it dominates the whole flavour profile. Fruity flavour with a not quite sour acidity is mostly indecipherable from the vinuous nature of the beer as a whole. Second wave of prunes, figs, and date squares. Medium almost oily palate. Lots of nice underlying flavours are spoiled by off putting nature of the beer as a whole. 8/4/6/3/14<P> 1998 VintageRated July 2005. Dark black body, small milk chocolate coloured head. Aroma is malt, and muted chocolate. Similar flavour with mild roast coming into its element in the finish. Decent but not impressing me as much as I had hoped. Thinnish palate. 6/3/6/3/13

jimmack (1223) - Nutley, New Jersey, USA - JUL 21, 2005
Bottle. Black with a medium sized light brown head. Aroma of dark roasted malt, chocolate and smoke. The smokiness comes out more in the flavor. Big roasted malt flavor with some chocolate and a bit of coffee.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 18, 2005
Bottle. Really quite delicious. Really chocolatey and smooth, with a dark chocolate bitterness in the finish. Smooth, thickish mouthfeel, long finish. Its funny how some of the larger crappy lager breweries come up with gems like this. I was drinking this on a hot summers night and i still could have downed a couple more, its a shame i only had one.

SoLan (1550) - Florida, USA - JUL 15, 2005
Black. Creamy, grayish tan head. Roasted malt, chocolate, lactose nose. Very slight hops in the nose as well. Choclate malt character up front, roasted finsh with touches of hops and dried dark fruits. Not much lactic character to the taste. Well carbonated, a little too much, actually. Very good porter.
