A very dark beer. Black in appearance, lots of roasted character. Chocolate, some licorice and toasted bread. krumbum (1109) - truckee, California, USA - AUG 30, 2013
Pitch black completely blocks out the light.. Smells like chocolate. Tastes like rich chocolate slight almost citrus and smoke. dwyerpg (6180) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - APR 10, 2014
Had quite awhile back, I guess I forgot to rate it. This is a thick beer with a nice roast and bite, and not too sweet. Really quite tasty. BrewGoblin (632) - Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - MAY 28, 2014
Maximum enjoyment. Set liver to high alert of AWESOME. Bubbling up from the ebony abyss this mocha headed sea-beast, she beckons. Heed her call b’ys, heed it well. Wood, cocoa, espresso, leather, whiskey, earth on the nose. Taste matches with caramel, vanilla, licorice, smoke and toasted marshmallows. Texture is divine, thick and syrupy but not at all hard to drink. Anchor’s aweigh, pound some more of this before ye ship off next! Zekada (427) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - JUL 11, 2014
Bottle from systembolaget. Aroma of roasted malts, liquorice, and dark chocolates and some subtle saltiness. Taste is smokey, liquorice with a creamy finish. The palate is full and tasteful, it lingers in a nice way but doesn’t stay unnecessary long. Overall a really nice beer. Not the best i’ve ever had but definitely one of the best porters I’ve had this far.

Dark brown with beige head. Aroma of roast malt, chocolate, vanilla and bread. Taste follows nose with noticeable alcohol. Very good, near great. BeerandBlues2 (13307) - Escondido, California, USA - DEC 29, 2012
Bottle. Pours opaque with a large, frothy tan head, long retention with very good lacing. Aroma is chocolate, roast, and dark caramel malt, dates and figs, earthy hops and fresh oak. Flavor is velvety and silky chocolate, lightly roasted and caramel malt, light hops and bitterness with dark fruity esters, and a clean, sweet finish. Full body and medium carbonation.

Chocolaty aromas. Pours black with a tan creamy head. Chocolaty, vanilla flavors. Overall a very very good porter. Nephilium (1817) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - APR 8, 2013
Bold aroma of chocolate and roast, with just a hint of bourbon. Pours an opaque black, with a huge milk chocolate colored head. The bourbon and oak come through a little further in the flavor, blending in with roasted flavors of the beer. There’s very little hop presence that I can detect. Very smooth and drinkable, with a full creamy mouthfeel. This is a very impressive beer, and I will be getting more of this. TimE (5816) - Tokyo, JAPAN - DEC 18, 2013
Pitch black color. Hazelnut dark fruit, chocolate and vanilla in the nose.
Very rich, lots if dark fruit, plums, port, vanilla beans, chocolate and a splash of brandy in the mouth. Very nice and rounded. Very warming finish that feels like taking down fudge soaked in vanilla. Fantastic beer, not sure if so authentic to style but totally awesome. Never had a Baltic porter like this.
