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.

Dark color with creamy beige head. Malty caramel aroma. Sweet caramel taste with syrup and burned malts. Creamy mouthfeel. Overall an enjoyable porter, maybe a little bit too sweet for my taste

cheap (4679) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 27, 2015
Big half liter bottle for $2.50 at chalet. Black and thicker looking as it pours into the glass. Aroma is a little volatile. Somewhat silky on the palate but the alky impression is not as strong as I was expecting for a Baltic. Could be a little more behaved but overall its a pretty roasted burnt wood flavored beer for a 7% dark beer. Much better than most impy stouts. Yes, strong roasted wood flavors but overall not a bad beer experience.

Ei ole kutsuva etiketti, mutta hullun hyvä olut. On tätä vältelty. Aivan suotta. Parhaita porttereita.

Cimbasso (408) - - SEP 9, 2015
Sampled from a 50cl bottle. Pours almost black with a thin, tan head. The aroma is not strong, but the taste is very sweet, dominated by a thick caramel taste and roasted malt flavours of chocolate, figs, dried fruit and liquorice. the finish is sweet and rather fruity without much dryness. The mouthfeel is very oily. Not a bad beer, but a little thick and sweet.

Quack-Duck (8862) - Down South, GERMANY - SEP 5, 2015
bottle from Baltic Branch Dover. Deep black, with a tall and cfreamy beige head, good aromas of chocolate. Full-bodied, malty with lots of roasetd malts and dark chocolate, a faint touch of coffee. Not too dry, not too sweet - perfectly balanced. Dark delight.

Martinsh (3) - Crewe, Cheshire, ENGLAND - SEP 4, 2015 does not count
I’ve been drinking this beer for over 20 years - ever since it was "brown dishwater". In recent years the bottles have been generally excellent. However, on tap it is something else - absolutely gorgeous ! Pours black with a bigger head than the bottle. Aroma of coffee and chocolate with tastes of liquorice and blackcurrant. Soft carbonation and a long finish to savour. Worth the wait !

Bottle 0,5ltr: Very dark brown colored brew with an dry bitter taste, hints of chocolate, coffee and roasted malts. True Baltic Porter classic.
