16 oz bottle. Pours a very dark brown, almost black with some mahogany highlights. Nice thick creamy one finger light brown head that left beautiful lacing. Aroma is mostly roast and chocolate malt, with some caramelized sugar, light alcohol, and a general fruitiness. Flavor has alot of chocolate malt and fruity characteristics, almost sweet, with a lightly lactic and alcoholic finish. Mouthfeel is maybe a little thin, but very creamy with fine carbonation, very soft. Not high on my list as far as Baltic Porters go, but a decent beer. The flavor just had a little too much fruitiness, and was a little lacking in aroma.

1pt .09oz bottle via trade with kramer17801- Thanks Jason! - Pours very deep brown with a nice tan head that faded back to a film and laced down the glass. Aromas of chocolate, caramel, coffee, and roasted malts. Flavor is like sweetened coffee, also notes of chocolate and caramel and some smoke. Soft, smooth creamy mouthfeel without much carbonation. An easy drinker for a baltic. And my first Latvian brew!

Seriously, I really wanted to enjoy this but as soon as it hit my tongue I thought I was drinking the juice from a thousand cigarette butts marinated in celery/coffee stock. Slight sweetness.

Bottle. Clear cola colour. Large beige head with fairly good retension. Aroma of roasted malt, bitter dark chocolate and hops. Flavour or lightly roasted malt, sweet caramel, alcohol, dark chocolate, and a hint of smokiness. Very smooth. Nice, but the bittersweet overshadows the roasted malts a bit too much for my taste.

a gift from my friend juha in finland. sweet caramel aroma, and some earthy smoky smells as well. some more chocolate and caramel and a little bit of smoke in the flavor as well. tangy malt finish which is just not quite sweet enough to make it sticky, but it’s still very enjoyable, even if a bit harsh. thanks juha!

Batch 1C062008: Sweet cola and cocoa aroma with some dusty attic notes; pours with a vibrant, stiff, perennial head; dobblebock sweetness with alot of carmelized sugars, no caraffe , dark malt or hoppy bitterness; visous and not particularly smooth; might be a good dessert beer, but not much more than that.
