Sluskin (13) - Skokie, Alabama, USA - FEB 3, 2013
A quality bargain porter with true history and none of the over priced nonsense of a craft beer brewed in Indiana. Pours a dark coffee almost black color a one finger head with no lacing. Has a sweet chocolate and raisin taste. Good carbonation.

BeardedAvenger (264) - 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.
