BOTTLE 50CL from rosenbergh. Thank you, Jan! Look: deep brown with red highlights, big beige head with poor retention. Aroma: burnt sugar, light toast/roast, grain and husk. Taste: starts rather bizarre light salty, then burnt sugar, some very light dark fruit, light peppery bitter finish. The finish has some light harsh phenolic notes.

Dark cola brown beer with beige big head dissolving soon, leaving lacing on the glass. Aroma has bready and roasted malts and caramelly sweetness. Flavor is sweet with salty licorice and roasted malts. Palate is full and soft. Finishes with a medium bite of bitterness, leaving a syrupy salty licoricy aftertaste. Good for a Baltic Porter. A bit on the sweet side but still enjoyable and well balanced.

Splitenz (329) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 6, 2014
A Baltic take on the Baltic Porter. My first Latvian beer, I had this in Helsinki, Finland. It is a very fine beer, the kind I had once in Croatia, and wish they would make more of in the Balkans. Good caramel malt meets roast flavor with a nice ash finish (yes, I like it when my porters have an ashy aftertaste). I’d buy this in Norway, and I recommend it to those going across the Baltic for beer.

ectuohy27 (570) - ESTONIA - APR 30, 2014
Strong and sweet,usually my far-and-away preference when it comes to alcoholic drinks, but yet I don’t like it--too much caramel malt, aroma isn’t pleasant, palate isn’t balanced at all...too hoppy a finish as well! weighs the tongue down instead of enlivening it. (TGIF, RIX)

hawthorne00 (2399) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAR 23, 2014
Bottle. Very dark brown with a beige head. Aroma of dark, slightly smoky caramel, stewed prunes, grass. Full bodied, creamy, just short of syrupy. Medium carbonation. Rich caramel, some chocolate, dark fruits, vanilla. Bitterness creeps up. Some spices come the fore at the end along with licorice. The finish is not dry, but the richness does not linger unduly. Comes across as a Dunkelbock and perhaps not one as strong as 6.8%. Rock solid beer.

Vighals (1083) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - MAR 20, 2014
Sort med høyt beige skum som legger seg til et tynt lag etter minuttet. Kaffe, malt og mørk sjokoladelukt. Over i karamell i smak, men kjenner fortsatt kaffen og sjokoladen fra lukten. Lite kullsyre, kjenner alkoholen også.

edsspoon (368) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAR 3, 2014
Pours deep red/dark brown with a thick light brown head. Aroma of alcohol (I found it a bit overpowering), roasted malt, chocolate and caramel with a hint of vanilla. Taste of chocolate malt, some bitterness, mild sweetness and again, quite a lot of alcohol. It’s fairly good.

Very dark brown color and aromas of caramel with strong maltiness and notes of coffee and chocolate. Full body and there is an alcohol flavor there as well. This is a good beer! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
