Every time I tried to find this, the date on the bottle/case was long expired. I was able to find a single fresh bottle in NJ, though, and I was pleasantly surprised. Very deep and complex flavors that go far beyond the usual porter. I would pick it up again.

Beautiful dark pour, nice creamy two finger head. Chocolate and coffee dominate the nose, with hints of raisins. Flavor is much the same, although I didn’t pick up the raisins in the flavor as much as I thought I would. Regardless, the balance of chocolate and coffee was right on. Nice complex palate makes for a great beer. And at $1.50 USD locally, probably one I will enjoy rather often.

500 ml. Initial sniff is of a doppelbock-ish Baltic Porter, but the taste reveals a strong roastiness. So its, raisins, licorice and coffee grounds, maybe. This is also a good looker, black with a big beige head. Fairly rich on the tongue with light carbonation. What Central Europeans do best.

Dark brown pour. Lots of roasted malt, raisins, prunes, burnt sugar and some milk chocolate. Flavor is sweet and has a lot of caramel and prunes. Chocolate, raisins and some port notes too. Nice.

corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 25, 2009
Pours a dark brown, almost black color with burgundy edges at the base and a thick foamy beige head. Roasted malty aroma with hazelnut, chocolate, caramel, toffee, syrup and alcohol notes. Roasted chocolate malty flavor with hints of toffee, caramel, nut and oatmeal with a nice dry, bitter finish.

Ratman197 (14674) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - AUG 24, 2009
500 ml bottle poured a clear dark brown with a lasting tan head. Aeomas of plum, raisin, dark chocolate, licorice and a hint of vanilla. Palate was light to medium bodied and crisp with a smooth dry finish. Flavors of dark fruit, dark chocolate, roasted malt, licorice and light vanilla with a smooth lingering roasty finish.

Avengedpoet (329) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - AUG 24, 2009
Pours an extremely dark brown/black with frothy coffee cream colored head. Aroma notes are roasted malts, alcohol, and some higher-temp fermentation phenols. Taste is better, with lots of roast and alcohol intermingling with yeast fruitiness. Some ash, chocolate, and coffee notes are present as well. A good bargain at $2.49 a bottle.

BeerChaser0078 (909) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - AUG 18, 2009
Bottle. Pours extremely dark brown, almost completely black with a tan head that leaves nice lacing. Roasted coffee beans dominate the aroma but there are also subtle hints of vanilla, chocolate and coal. A slight burnt taste meshes well with flavours of mocha, cocoa, malt and salty mixed nuts. A great porter with a complex flavour that is also excellent value.
