330 ml bottle into snifter, bottled on 1/7/2008. Pours hazy fairly pitch black color with brown edges, with a 1 finger dense tan head with goof retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of big raisin, plum, dark chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, coffee, toast, dark bread, molasses, light smoke, light licorice, herbal, and roasted earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good complexity of dark/roasted malt, light licorice, and yeast ester notes; with good strength. Taste of big dark chocolate, cocoa, toast, dark bread, roasted malt, coffee, raisin, molasses, light smoke, light licorice, herbal, and roasted earthiness. Slight roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of dark chocolate, cocoa, toast, dark bread, roasted malt, coffee, molasses, light smoke, light licorice, and roasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice complexity and balance of dark/roasted malt flavors, light licorice, and yeast ester flavors; with great robustness and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light-medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a very creamy and lightly slick/chalky mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent Baltic porter! All around great complexity and balance of dark/roasted malt, licorice, and yeast ester flavors; and very smooth to sip on. A very enjoyable offering.

On-tap at Oblivion in Orlando. Pours a dark black color with a tan head. The aroma is dark as smokey with licorice and chocolate. The taste is smooth up front and turns very roasty with a lot of smoke with bitter coffee and cocoa flavors in a bitter finish. Overall, I really enjoyed this one. Definitely recommended!

At The Birch Bar in Norfolk, they have it on tap. If you like Imperial Stouts drink this. The Licorice is not a overpowering flavor. It sit in the back to darken the brew and strengthen the Imperial presents. Don't know what it taste like from a bottle just draft is alway far mores balanced an reserve than is over carbonated cousin. Enjoy

330ml bottle, thanks to mulder1010, into a Mikkeller wine glass.

Black with brown around the edges. Nice light mocha foam on top that leaves spotty lacing and retains really well.

Really nice smell of licorice, ground coffee that isn't too dominant, chocolate too adds to it.

Nice mix of coffee and dairy chocolate and a little tinge of licorice as well. Complex enough to be interesting. Enjoyable.

Lower carbonation, softer at the front and then coffee and licorice bitterness builds. Drinks well.

Very nice beer. Satisfying, complex and all round well done.

330 ml bottle, it had a date on there but I don't remember what it was, poured into a tulip glass.

A- Pours black with a large khaki head, good retention and lacing.

S- Fruit, milk chocolate, bready malt, a bit of roast, very soft and rounded aroma.

T- Less sweet than the aroma, with heavier emphasis on milk chocolate, bread, a bit of roastiness. Some sweetness from dark fruit, molasses.

M- Medium-bodied, soft, creamy feel.

O- A really nice beer, very flavorful but nothing too aggressive, easy to drink and a great bargain at 15 kr (less than $3).

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: The dark chocolate colored liquid is covered by a film of tan that breaks apart into a ringlet; leaves a nice, webby pattern behind

Smell: More licorice, molasses and char than chocolate, though there is a sweet character underneath

Taste: Chocolate, up front, with licorice and char building by mid-palate; after the swallow, the molasses adds a bolder, sweeter dimension along with a hint of dark fruit; some smoke underneath, in the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation

Overall: A very nice beer (more Foreign Export Stout than Baltic Porter, but having elements of both styles) that has a range of subtle flavors
