Dar beer with a good, lively head. Smell was smoky and chocolatey, taste followed suit but had some fruity malt in there as well. Rich, smooth porter. Very nice indeed.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Max’s place. Thanks Stas. Dark brown to black with a beige head. Aroma of caramel, licorice, some roast. Sweet flavor with caramel, some roast, a chocolate note and a bit of licorice. Medium-bodied. A decent Baltic Porter, quite classic for the style.

Muy dulce, se siente mucho el sabor a caramelo. Olor ahumado agradable, pero el gusto dulzon deja un resabio en boca que disminuye la potabilidad.

Drank from a bottle. Quite nice, slightly sweet and a bit smoky. I think this is one of the better traditional Baltic porters.

I had this at Yia-yia’s downtown because I had never had a Baltic porter before and was interested in trying one. Unfortunately, my first experience will probably be my last. Very malty and thick it struck me as having a cough-syrup flavor that really put me off and it just didn’t go away and I couldn’t get used to it.
