500ml, BB July 2015, 6.8%. Pitch black, big foamy brown head, lacing doesn’t stick. Aroma is gluey, a little yeast, toffee. Body is medium, smooth, low carbonation. Taste is rounded malts, light coffee, sour flower petals, quite dry and bitter towards the finish, touch of ash. Pretty good considering I only got this for the country tick.

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.

suribe (4) - Valdivia, CHILE - JAN 26, 2015 does not count
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

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