Bottle from Vinmonopolet in Valkendorfsgate, Bergen. Pours a magnificent oily black body with a large, creamy caramel-colored, long-lasting head. Nose is dark chocolate, brandy, leather, coffee and hints of licorice, caramel and alcohol. Taste is coffee and brandy up front, then dark chocolate and sweet malts come in before a bit of leather and licorice in the finish. Smooth, velvety full body and soft to medium carbonation. A very nice Baltic Porter from Westbrook.

Bottle poured a black color with aromas of chocolate, roast, light earth, and some coffee. Flavors are the same with cbocolate, and roast. A very nice beer that did not have a boozy aftertaste. Another solid beer from Westbrook.

22oz bottle (from 2012) in a tulip. Pours black with a tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, some chocolate and coffee, some light sweet notes, and some dough. Flavor the same with a nice blend of everything you want from dark malts. Smoother texture. A solid beer.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Robust, smoky aroma has licorice, coffee, molasses, caramel and semi-sweet chocolate notes. Pours a rich, warm sable a flea’s eyebrow above black with a thick, fine-bubbled and rather persistent tan head. Hearty flavor has a strong smoky malt overtone that ushers in chocolate, coffee, caramel, nutty, earthy and subtle licorice notes that boogie on your tongue and stay long after the beer has gone down the pipes. Firm, smooth, oily texture is fairly fizzy, though the tingle does not persist the way the flavors do. Somewhat bitter hops make their appearance only in the final act, the bitterness nicely balancing the chocolaty sweetness. This is indeed a monster - monstrously delicious!
