Bottle thanks to pabs311. Pours black with a medium dark brown heady that is thick but dissipates quite quickly. Aroma is full of roasted malts and coffe with hints of dark fruits and raisin. Flavor begins bitter with a roasted coffee note, but notes of dark fruits grown in to the finish. Palidor19 (3189) - Brandon, Florida, USA - APR 13, 2010
solid beer, with a mulitude of flavors with cocoa, coffe. everlasting bitterness. solid nick76 (4399) - Tampa, Florida, USA - APR 13, 2010
The aroma is very sweet and roasted with a bit of hops. The appearance is dark brown with a tan head that just keeps lasting. The taste is like the aroma with a fairly dry finish. The palate is thick, Overall this is good but not great. sunnyridge (222) - USA - APR 6, 2010
My favorite baltic porter- smutty nose nailed this beer. Delightful jet black color, thick, heavy body. nose has lots of dried fruit and a slight tart quality behind the big toasted malt. The taste has big chocolate, raisin, and toasted malt. Nephilium (1821) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - MAR 28, 2010
Aroma is of roast and dark fruits. Pours an opaque black, with a big tan head. Slick and smooth mouthfeel, with flavor notes of coffee, roast, cocoa, and a touch of molasses. An exceptional beer to drink on a chilly night.

Bottle - Deep and dark with a foamy tan head. Raisins and dark fruit, chocolaty malt with a touch of booze. Sweet malt, coffee grounds, a bit of nuttiness, with some espresso on the finish. Smooth and full-bodied--velvety and wonderful. tastybeer (1853) - Indiana, USA - MAR 15, 2010
Bottle. Pours motoroil black with a tan head. Flavor is coffee, chocolate, raisins. Not bad for $4. punkrkr27 (903) - Berkley, Michigan, USA - MAR 6, 2010
Black pour with a small brown head. Cocoa and coffe aroma with just a slight hint of dark fruit brown sugar. Milk chocolate flavor with some cold pressed coffee, a hint of plum, little burnt sbrown sugar, and some lingering hop bitterness. Creamy medium full body wit lots of carbonation.

Bottle 22 oz, thanks Blankboy. Powerful aroma. There is a lot of chocolate, some coffee, vanilla, anise and molasses. Flavor is chocolate, sweet malts and grape tannins. Palate is different than most baltic porters or imperial stouts. It is light in a positive way, it makes it more refreshing. Very enjoyable for its heavy taste.
