4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Cerveja escura espuma creme mas pouco persistente. Super bem balanceada nos aromas e sabores, tostado leve, malte muitíssimo saboroso e lúpulo na medida. Cremosa, saborosa e refrescante. Uma delícia quero mais!!!

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle from a local shop (plus € 1). Never had this before. Pours light brown with decent light beige head. Aroma is light caramel and boring malty wateriness, faint roasty notes. The foam extracts notes of alcohol. Taste is uninspiring watery caramel and grainy malts. Would like to say bittersweet but the sweet overpowers the very little bitterness. A hint of chocolate, but that’s really like bits of chocolate diluted in water. Body quite light, palate creamy smooth but also watery, finish very dry, grainy, dusty, minimal bitterness. Some metallic notes later on. Carbonation not present, perhaps only a tiny tingle when swallowing. Covers my teeth with a Cola-like coating, makes me wanna go brush my teeth. Overall a very watery and candy-like caramelly (makeshift of a proper) Baltic Porter. Not good. But not terrible enough to not finish the bottle.

Farven er dejlig sort men med lidt brunlig farve. Skummet er hurtigt væk igen og ikke så tæt som jeg kunne ønske det, så her mister den et par point ved mig. duft og smag er karamel, og det så rigeligt. God porter.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tumman viininpunainen väri, heikko vaahto. Tuoksusta ei saa kiinni. Maussa jotain makeaa marjaa. Suutuntuma vaahtoava, napakka, lievä alkoholin isku. Hajuton väritön mauton jälkimaku. Heikko esitys porteriksi.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
I got this bottle from Jinroh, thank you so much for that! Always wanted to try this beer that bears with its name and style a historical, almost iconic burden. Ratebeer opinion is not too excited about the current product, but I am. The beer is somewhat dark, but far from being black, just translucent dark cherrywood, with a soapy beige head that quiets down to a nice creamy film. Except for a faint skunky whiff when the crown pops, the aroma is mainly Karo and some Waldhonig. One would dread the taste from reading the ratings here, but it is quite nice. Innocuous, but nice. It is sweet, malty, with plenty of caramel and an abrupt finish. But pleasant. Given the rather tame, diluted flavours and the absence of a proper finish, one would be tempted to say it is thin, but I find that there is still a creamy sensation left over for a while after the beer has rolled down. Too classy of a presentation to be carrying such a mundane beer. A le Coq should put their act together and improve this product.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at home. Pours a deep brown to black colour with a big, ivory head. Aroma of coffee, roasted malt, brownies and leather. Roasted flavour as well but is sweeter with chocolate and rye bread. Pretty malty. Slick and soft mouth feel, and has a light bitterness. An okay baltic porter, balanced and a little sweet.
