2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Big half liter bottle for $2.50 at chalet. Black and thicker looking as it pours into the glass. Aroma is a little volatile. Somewhat silky on the palate but the alky impression is not as strong as I was expecting for a Baltic. Could be a little more behaved but overall its a pretty roasted burnt wood flavored beer for a 7% dark beer. Much better than most impy stouts. Yes, strong roasted wood flavors but overall not a bad beer experience.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled from a 50cl bottle. Pours almost black with a thin, tan head. The aroma is not strong, but the taste is very sweet, dominated by a thick caramel taste and roasted malt flavours of chocolate, figs, dried fruit and liquorice. the finish is sweet and rather fruity without much dryness. The mouthfeel is very oily. Not a bad beer, but a little thick and sweet.
