3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The black body is accompanied by a quickly fading light brown head that laces minimally. Nose is strong aromas of coffee, chokolate, roasted coffee beans and caramel. The taste is fairly intense and dominated by a soft sweet bitterness that leads to a long, dry finish. Carbonation is very soft and works well with the thick and syrupy palate. This is a very nice and well balanced one.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
0.5 bottle. Black in color, quite big, tanned head on top, leaves a nice lacing and has some retention too. Dark malts are the most prominent in the aroma, chocolaty notes, some berries. Sweet taste juxtaposed with an unusual acidity, very malty, a lot of caramel and sour forest fruit notes, earth, leather and raisins; it’s got quite a character. Full body, thick texture and flat carbonation. Finish is moderately long and exhibits increased fruitiness, balanced better than the taste. The beer can be overtly called a splendid, very satisfying brew.

Dark Brown, Almost Black, Huge Tan Head, Decent lacing. Sweet Malt, Light Toast, Caramel, Molasses. Medium Body, Hides ABV well. Easy to drink. Pretty Good. Considering that it is a Macro coming from a land dominated by Euro Pales, this is Even Better. Worth A Try...

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle from Beers of Europe - Near opaque black body with a tan head. Light on the nose with a touch of malts and not much else going on. Flavour is thick with character. Starts off nice and hearty with a touch of roasted quality to it, but it does not last long. Feel is nice and thick with a lot of body there and a decent carbonation.

Pours ruby red to brown with a thick lasting foamy head. Smells of tarte cherries, sugar and sweet malt. Tastes of chocolate, cherries and spices. Nice baltic porter

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
50cl bottle from Riga Airport. Pous clear, very dark brown, close to black, with a tan head. Malty aroma with licorice, dark dried fruits, caramel, some roasty notes and hints of chocolate. Sweet and malty with fruity and some roasty flavours and a light bitterness. Fairly well balanced, but a bit to much on the sweet side for my taste. Medium body with a slightly soft carbonation. Sweet and desserty, but quite delicious.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours dark, dark red - almost black. Thin tan head that hangs in there a while. Aroma is bready, with notes of molasses, cola, and soy - maybe a hint of prune juice. Flavor is sweetish, but the hop comes through. Medium body, moderate carbonation, caramely finish.
Rather nice brew, but not like any Baltic Porter I’ve had before.

Dark amber, medium head. Aroma malty sweet. Flavor is sweet mealtimes with alcohol and mild roastiness. Really tasty. Agree with comments about an atypical porter. Nice beer.
