3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Civic IGA, Canberra. i like the chocolate and coffee notes but this beer is very sweet and quickly becomes cloying. I struggled to get through a half bottle (250 ml) and needed something refreshing afterwards.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500ml bottle from WB. Clear, deep brown pour with red highlights and a persistent beige head leaving moderate lace. Nose is heavy on the molasses. Medium-light body and moderate carbonation. Sucrose, molasses and a touch of licorice, not much else. Finish is short and sweet, with a touch of roast malt creeping in. ABV is nicely concealed, but unfortunately it’s by sugar. Heaps of better Baltic Porters out there, have a look at Smuttynose’s offering (Americans) or Zywiec’s (Europe). Keep an eye out for more BPs from west coast breweries like American and Berryessa, this is a rising style. I’ve had samples from both of the latter and they’re quite good.

Poured into an English pint glass. Color is jet black with a thick, frothy tan head. Aroma is chocolate, nuts, some alcohol and some smoke. Flavor starts off sweet with caramel and chocolate and finishes with a slight roasty bitterness and some alcohol. Palate is smooth with a medium body. Overall this is a very nice porter that is very sweet and has really nice chocolate notes.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Deep brown with ruby highlights and small coffee coloured head. Aromas of sweet molasses, stewed plums, dark chocolate, a little coffee and some booze. The taste is quite sweet, with dark fruits, caramel, a little chocolate, some grassy hops. Very silky mouthfeel but could be a bit thicker. Good dessert beer.
