4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
One of the top baltic porters, brewed with 5 malts and single american hop, variety of noble European hops.
Pours black color, clear, with stable beige foamy head, with good lasting. Aroma: rich malt aroma, with notes of toffee, hint of caramel, dark chocolate, biscuit, espresso coffee, hint of peat, supported with note of dark fruits, especially prunes, plums...flavor: very similar to aroma: intense malt flavor, with notes of biscuit, toffee, hint of caramel, espresso coffee, dark chocolate, hint of licorice and peat in first half, but then steps back and leave room for fruity wave of prunes, plums and other resins. Before the end steps forward gentle note which reminds on port wine with hint of whisky. Hop flavors are mostly hidden and move forward in finish. Finish is dry , slightly bitter, with slightly spicy notes. Body is medium to high, texture is smooth, carbonation is moderate medium.

Roasted bitter malts. Nutty, bitter chocolate, tasty. Finish is more dry malts and a tiny hops. Really cool just there’s a funky lactose aroma in it. Otherwise really cool, thanks kapusil!
