Poured into a Due South Brewing Co. snifter. Back label says 05/04/12

A- Pours a 99% opaque black color with a 1/4 inch light brown head that retains a bit before becoming a thin ring around the edge of the glass and minimal surface foam.

S- Sweet, alcoholic aroma of dark roasted malt, caramel and molasses.

T- The sweetness continues with an almost brandy-like quality due to the high alcohol content. So smooth though as multiple sips are taken easily. The dark roasted malt brings notes of coffee, dark chocolate and even some raisin. A hint of oxidation actually complements the other flavors.

M- Slightly creamy with medium-low carbonation and a full body.

O- I feel like this was the perfect time to crack this one. Aged over 2 and a half years, it's snowing outside and I just got off work, so the warmth of the booze plus the tastiness really hits the spot. Cheers.

Bottle label data: Date of 05/04/12.

Dark ebony and garnet hues exhibited by the body; thick, fine foamed, luxurious head. Ripe plum and fig aroma. Soothing caramel and brown malt flavors; mild brown sugar flavors; subtle smokey tone; vanilla; cocoa. Heavy body with a very soft, smooth tone; medium residual sugar texture; semi-sweet finish.

A very sublime, smile-producing dark ale. Rich, robust, and balanced with an exquisite flavor complexity. A dark malt treasure with no distracting alcohol heat even with it's 11.0% ABV. An exceptional example of what a big beer can be...

Picked this up at the beer store at Brouwerij De Molen. Bottled 05/04/12. Dark brown, nearly black pour with a one finger beige head with good retention and lacing. The nose is dominated by dark fruit and brown bread along with hints of toffee, butterscotch, and coffee. The taste follows suit with huge brown bread, raisins, and dates, along with hints of molasses, licorice, subtle chocolate, booze, and coffee. The mouthfeel is thick and syrupy with a sweet, boozey finish. Overall, this is a little too sweet for my tastes and really lacks any kind of roast. More like a Barley Wine for me than a Porter. I remember having this on tap several years ago at ACBF and really liking it, but this was a bit disappointing...

Bottled on 05/04/12.Pours a deep dark cola color with a creamy half finger beige head atop.Aromas of dark roast coffee,raisin/prune,and earth with the alcohol being big but not in ur face.Wow alot going on flavor wise with dark fruit and dark roast intertwined with big earthy tones giving a great drying lager-like finish.This is a great Baltic porter with just enough sweetness and just enough drying earthiness,top notch.
