BeardedAvenger (209) - Addlestone, Surrey, ENGLAND - SEP 30, 2016
Bottle at home. Cheekily asked a colleague to get me some Latvian beer when they were on a hen weekend and they did. Bitter, anteseptic aroma. Very dark, a slight hint of red. Beige head soon fades away. Heavy bodied, smooth start with a sharp bitter peak, which initially becomes sour in the finish. Some sweetness flitting around. Can feel the alcohol at the top of my throat. However the sweetness then becomes more apparent given more time. A decent beer but not keen on the finish - I’ll go with ’anteseptic’ again.

(Bottle) Pours black with big tan head. Aroma is dark roast malt with hints of fruit and chocolate. Excellent mouthfeel - smooth creamy good carbonation. Taste is nice balance of sweet and bitter. Dark toffee with chocolate, port and burnt notes. A very nice sweet rich beer.

Bottle 0.5 l, EPI, Wrocław, Poland.
Ciemnobrązowe piwo z beżową, obfitą, puszystą, gęstą, sztywną i trwałą pianą oraz lekko owocowym i wyraziście palonym aromatem. W smaku gęste, początkowo lekko słodkawe i owocowe, następnie mocno palone z wytrawnym, kawowym finiszem.

Really really enjoyed this! Sweetish but not too much, loads of dark chocolate. Also quite Winey, almost Port Wine like; ripe dark cherries, roasted malts, a hint of alcohol. Great Baltic Porter!
