Tap at the brewery. Pours black with a red tinge. Thick brown head that dissipates quickly and fades to a bubbly lacing. Chocolate and roasty aroma and flavour. Slight bitter coffee taste. Some raisin, stonefruit and nuts. Great.

4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
330ml bottle, probably about 4 months old.
Pours a dark brown (almost black) with a finger of tan head.
Nose is coffee, raisins, brandy, slight chocolate and some bitter orange. There’s also a kind of interesting slight vegemite yeast component to the nose which I like quite a bit.
My first baltic porter, and I really love the balance of flavours. You get some coffee on the attack, but it’s mingled with a sweet plum and raisin flavour, loads of toffee and a hint of something that’s a bit like orange marmalade. The finish brings back some of that roasted coffee, as well as some chocolate and a slight burnt toast bitterness.
Body is medium to heavy, and the mouthfeel is slightly oily and very mouth coating.
This is an amazing beer. 2 Brothers can do no wrong in my mind, and this just further cements it. It’s incredibly balanced, with some novel flavours and also some classic porter character.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The name is puzzling. But not to worry, as it is a good beer. The aroma is berries, chocolates, roast malts and a bit of a cigarette butt. However, initially it smells more like a cheap dunkel, very burpsy over charred roasts. It also looks like an ordinary dunkel, with a dark coca cola syrup colour and little head to brag about. The flavours are nice and round, basically chocolates and plums, woody, sweet, vanilla, Pumpernickel, a bit nutty, with a rather thin body. Best beer of a rather uneventful evening.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours black with a brown head. Aroma is malt, chocolate, coffee, roastiness, vanilla with some nutty notes. Taste is medium sweet leading to a sweet hoppy finish. Good stuff.
