I thought this was a pretty darn good porter. It had a nice roasty taste. Molasses and coffee. Very thick. A little too sweet. Not all that complex.

Jwasciuk (198) - Lowell, Michigan, USA - MAR 6, 2007
pours muddy black with a creamy light brown head. Aroma is of cookies, roasted malts, dark chocolate, brothy with plum and smoke esters. Flavor is well balanced, roasted malts and coffee. Finishes on the sweeter side. Light to medium bodied, watery and oily, softly carbonated. Especially nice for only $1.99

WillieV (197) - Maryland, USA - MAY 25, 2008
Bottle: Poured a very dark brown color (not quite black but close). Nice light brown head that quickly disappeared. Very light lacing on the glass. Scent reminds me of burnt coffee and a sweet fruit. Taste is very surprising compared to the rest this company has made this one actually stands out. Burnt coffee/caramel taste with a light hint of alcohol.

Nice after taste, maybe some coffee, rather sweet, bu not overly. Flavor lingers in the palate.

beerhandy (195) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - JAN 4, 2005
Pub Glass, Dark light head, this porter pours a black/mahogany. The aroma is the delicious scent of a roasted heath bar. The taste is slightly bitter from the dark grains But notes of raisins and caramel round it out in the finish. A good beer

Nice baltic porter-I like porters a bit roastier, but its very smooth and great for the price.

e303 (194) - - JUN 23, 2014
Bottle to porter glass. Aroma is herbal and like some kind of green plant. Taste is mostly roasted malt with hop balance. Finish is decent. Good carbonation. Very different from European and American porters. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Fine beer from Russia. But Lithuanian or Polish proters are better.

green (186) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - APR 4, 2005
Cellar Temp. Opaque black with diminishing head. Very light aroma. Also lightly flavors. Has a bit of a cola note. Reasonably interesting roasted malt profile. Well balanced and drinkable.
