Very dark red and brown body. Head is a medium sized light tan. The aroma is malty with prunes, brandy and a touch of coffee. A nice creamy mouthfeel compliments the full flavors. It has a little red grape with some molasses. The caramel gets stronger as you drink it. Reminds me of eating a sweet bread, maybe banana bread? A fairly light bodied beer that does the style justice.

Slightly more alcohol and bitterness than I expected. I had hoped for a fairly flat, malty, thick porter with some sweetness. Chocolate present. Alcohol could have been better hidden if more sweetness was present. Not that impressed.

Very dark brown with a big brown head. Sweet chocolate aroma. Flavor is very sweet, too sweet, with notes of caramel, toffee and chocolate.

color is deep brown, clear, short-lived tan head. slight alcohol, chocolate in the nose. flavor is quite chocolatey, with a decent hop bitterness with each swish around the mouth. not a thirst quincher by any stretch. moderate mouthfeel. a quality beer.

TChrome (1447) - Bedford, Texas, USA - OCT 23, 2004
Dark brown color with a big thick creamy off white head that is very well retained. Aroma is lightly rich sweet malt, light chocolate, slight touch of smoke. Flavor is rich chocolate malt with a tiny bit of of hops. Very enjoyable beer from a far away country.

BeerAteHer (384) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - OCT 23, 2004
Pours a beautiful burgundy black color with a thick head that lasts as thick lacing to the end of the glass. Aroma is rather bland compared to similar European porters and has undertones of a tire factory. However, the complexity of the flavor holds its own, presenting a floral bouquet and rich, caramel malt undertones. Pleasant, thick body to this brew. Intense strawberry Pop Tart aftertaste. I’d say this Latvian outfit offers a great value at $1.99. Fix the aroma and other spiritous elements and it will become a classic brew.
