hmmm... Latvian Porter? This beer is a proof that Latvia belongs to beer belt, not vodka belt. Not So thick, not So porter-alike. But, a good beer With fantastic bitterness. Caramel and herbs...sage. I recommend, that this beer must be enjoyed quite warm to get all tastes up. However, entity is not freshest possible - a bit diesel-alike. But yes, definitely it won’t be my last alderis porter.

glacier (147) - Warszawa, POLAND - MAY 25, 2016
Kolor ciemnobrunatny. Piana duża. W zapachu trochę gorzka czekolada. Wysycenie trochę za duże. Smak trochę za płytki jak na porter bałtycki. Za mało alkoholu. W smaku trochę czekolady, lekka paloność. Słaby porter.

klu9 (353) - Kraków, POLAND - MAY 3, 2016
Barwa czarna, pod światło rubinowe przebłyski, piana gęsta długo się utrzymuje. W zapachu wiśnia, czekolada, lekko metaliczny zapach. W smaku wytrawne, czekolada, kakao, goryczka średnia w kierunku niskiej.

hvn (212) - Nuuk, GREENLAND - APR 30, 2016
Barwa niemalże czarna, rubinowe refleksy. Piana gęsta, beżowa, ładnie oblepia szkło. Aromat mało intensywny, czekolada, kawa i minimalny DMS, tj. gotowane warzywa. Bardzo gęste, niczym likier. W smaku dominuje gorzka czekolada, bombonierka, później kawa. Lekka metaliczność. Treściwe i przyjemne. Jeden z lepszych porterów bałtyckich.

Mad_Ferret (949) - SWEDEN - APR 20, 2016
Bottle. Clear dark brown/black with a red hue and a nice spongy two finger tanned head. Aroma: Sweet with some inky/rubbery roasted malts, cheap coffee and dark fruits like dried prunes. Taste: Sweet and rich with chocolate, caramel, coffee, licorice, some raisins and figs and an slight inky bitter finish. Medium to bigger body with soft round carbonation and oily thick texture. Pretty decent rich hearty porter. Maybe a tad too sweet and fatty. And I’m not too fond of the inky parts. Otherwise, ok.

this company is trying to win people back with good beers, they are slowly doing just that. This is quite good. Not too much carbonation, quite sweet for porter. Worth trying.

Aroma of coffee, chocolate and dried plums. Taste: medium sweet, coffee, wine, lightly metallic. Much lighter than polish examples of style, but doesn’t seem watery.
