Mad_Ferret (920) - 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.

Nurmis (180) - FINLAND - FEB 3, 2016
0,5l bottle from alko. Black coloured creamy liquid, big foamy tanned head, low carbonation. Aroma is mainly chocolate, some caramel and hops on the side. Taste is heavy sweetness, light bitterness. Too sweet for my personal liking, but a quality beer nonetheless.

subgrade (11) - LATVIA - JAN 28, 2016
0.5l bottle. Almost black colour, dark copper tone when viewed against a light source. Small off-white head, stays only on the sides, some lacing. Aroma is caramel, toffee, a touch of dried fruit and chocolate. Taste is rich, mostly sweet with some delicate roasted bitterness, slight notes of port wine. Very nicely rounded and balanced. Medium to full body, smooth texture with medium carbonation, long and slightly warming finish. Not quite as intense as some newer craft brewers’ takes on the style, still a classic and a great balance between rich taste and drinkability.
