3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma was nice and malty. Taste of chocolate and a bit of coffee.
Palate was fruity and long.
Overall, not as rich as the Munchner Doppelbocks i prefer, but it was very good and tasty.
Alcohol was just right and warming.

Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth and moderately creamy mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is well hidden with only a light warming present after the finish. Overall this is a good Baltic porter. Good balance and solid complexity of dark/roasted malt and yeast ester flavors; and very smooth to sip on for the ABV. A pleasantly enjoyable offering.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Buena porter con poco aroma pero con un sabor impactante aunque adolece de cuerpo, el cual se echa un poco de menos. Repetiría sin problemas.

Bottle from Triangle Wine, Morrisville. Ok aroma, sweet. Malty, earthy peaty, yeasty. Dark reddish brown color, small to no head, no lace. Sweet flavor. Medium body, smooth creamy mouthfeel, short sweet finish. It’s ok, not making me want to finish this, but I’m giving some doubt as far as how far this beer has to travel.
