look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

A: Pours an opaque yet still clear extremely dark brown approaching jet black in color with moderate amounts of fine active visible carbonation rising along the edges of the glass and faint dark cola brown colored highlights. The beer has a three finger tall dense foamy dark tan head that slowly reduces to a medium to large sized patch of medium thick film surrounded by a large patch of very thin film covering the remainder of the surface of the beer and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of dark roasted malts + smoked malts with minimal amounts of sweetness as well as moderate aromas of licorice/anise and light aromas of earthy + spicy hops.

T: Upfront there are slightly stronger than moderate flavors of dark roasted malts + dark malts + smoked malts with minimal amounts of sweetness. That is followed by hints of dark chocolate + coffee as well as light to moderate flavors of licorice/anise. Finally there are light flavors of earthy + spicy hops. Moderate amounts of roasty bitterness which slowly fades away leaving a lingering smoked malt flavor.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Smooth.

O: Easy to drink with well hidden alcohol. Lots of complexity to the flavor and aroma to this beer makes it quite interesting and enjoyable.

Draft at Churchkey. Inky black with a one finger creamy beige head. Aroma seems on the money toasty, while the taste brings some smokey, ashy flavors, dark chocolate. Super smooth, lingering bitterness with a bit of heat.

Poured from fridge temp. Color is jet black - really attractive. Smell is wonderful licorice, roasted malt, and some subtle smoky notes. Taste is tobacco, chocolate, licorice, and some really nice dark fruit. This beer is nicely balanced but still complex. Mouthfeel is thick and creamy. Overall, this is a really great beer.

sensational beer, especially for the price. an exciting recipe, not with notes of licorice, but with actual licorice. pretty darn cool how they kept it an accent not an overtaking flavor, i love that. deep mocha brown color on this one, clear and shiny, with a tall tan head of tiny little bubbles that rise up like a slow erupting volcano on the pour from the bottle. big wafts of earthy dark cocoa and spice from the nose right away, almost fills the room, some anise there, the licorice is somewhat subtle here, rooty, woody, dry. the flavor is more of the same, licorice gives a cool spice complexion but its rad how not sweet this is, pretty dry all the way through, root beer, anise, subtle black pepper, dusty baking cocoa powder, a sturdy grain body but extraordinary carbonation, lingering finish without the sugar, some bitterness, and most interestingly, a cool european ale yeast thats not at all english in the way it manifests itself here, almost more classically german, but different, maybe some cool house strain they use, either way, i dig it! for under 8 bucks a bottle, you would be hard pressed to find a better or more interesting porter from anywhere. hope to see more of their beers for sale here soon! even if you dont like licorice, i think you still have a strong chance of enjoying this beer! also, i cant believe there is a mikkeller beer geek collaboration edition. if anyone has a lead on a bottle, hit me up!

Almost black color with brown head. Aroma has intense chocolate malt, fudge, caramel, roasted coffee beans, really complex. Taste starts with roasted chocolate malt and is followed by a weird, acrid flavor. It's something I found in multiple baltic porters. Finish is roasty and bitter. Medium body with medium to light carbonation. Baltic porter is not really one of my favorite styles but this one is quite good.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.25

(11.2 oz bottle, code 01 07 09... poured into a fat tulip)

L: nearly impenetrably black liquid, dark dark brown on the edges, splotch of khaki-colored spitty foam rests atop... no real foam retention or lacing of note, though the bubbly collar remains till the end... despite age, doesn't appear to have much sediment tumble out

S: vinous esters shoot out at cap removal... refined roast, espresso, dark boutique chocolate, little hint of olive on the edges... malt richness and depth suggests syrup-like consistency... absolutely sexy stouty aromas, excellent potency - the aging has been kind

T: dark chocolate milk, almost like a ribbon of espresso syrup in the middle, though only roasty fuzz on the outside... the licorice flavor may come out in the finish, but its bitter qualities seem to be what shows the most... aftertaste has low sweetness and bitterness, very subtle hints of ash, raisin, maybe some dark toffee... the booze has been time-polished down to a fine glow... the flavor qualities are fantastic though the vibrancy of the taste has lost some color

F: medium-full bodied at max, little bubbling... getting a faint heat from the booze, but not much more than what one'd get from a stout 1.5-2.0% less in abv... very subtle acidic (roast) twang at the end, lingering... substance, but luxuriously dry... overall - rich, smooth, understated - easy and pleasurable to drink, comforting

O: random find, and a good one - I could easily knock back 2-3 of these in one sitting, probably wouldn't get tired of it... curious to try a more recent bottling... I will be seeking out more of these

Very dark color, tan head, thick, mixed consistency, very good persistence.
Nice smell, clean, malty, cocoa.
Taste is on the mild side, initially quite bitter - licorice, cocoa. Then a more traditional roasty-bitter porter maltiness. Not an IPA bitterness.
Mouthfeel is spot-on. Rich but not thick. Nice carbonation.
Finish is not quite at the same level with the rest of the beer - not intense or long. Still, nice, consistent.

Black beer with a pillowy, tan head that leaves globs of lacing everywhere. Smells are chocolate, licorice, big roasted malt, char and a bit of smokiness. The taste is a big hit of salted black licorice, char, molasses and smoky malts. This beer reminds me of smoked, salty licorice I had from Sweden once. This beer is also decently carbed with a light and fluffy mouthfeel. Really great and unique beer and I am glad I took a chance on it.
