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.

At a tasting, many thanks Stas, been looking for this for a long time, very dark brown color,aroma of wood and chocolate with some nuttiness and just a hint of smoke, flavor of cocoa and dark bread, lingering earthy bitterness, quite smooth. Highly enjoyable.

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. Tomada en Jerlgava, enero de 2015, Letonia

Brownish foam thick. Sweet but thin taste can feel alcohol.otherwise balanced but after several sips feels too sweet!

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

Aroma of roasted malt, with bit of chocolate, coffee and trace of dark fruit. Taste of roasted malt, with chocolate, coffee and caramel. Mild bitterness ad the finish is quite dry. Fairly full body, witha smooth and creamy texture. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.
