Leighton (18034) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 16, 2016
Bottle shared in East Croydon - many thanks to Daniel. Pours rich brown with a creamy, tan head. Sugary, well toasted brown bready in the nose, faint cocoa. Medium sweet flavour, lightly metallic, with more cocoa, toast, caramel. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Sugary sweet finish, with more bread, toasted caramel. Not bad.

Koelschtrinker (16429) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 21, 2011
Malzig-milder Antrunk, ab dem Mittelteil erfolgt eine proportionale Malzsteigerung hin zu ansprechend wüürzig-malzigem Nachgeschmack, der mit seiner angedeuteten Schokoladennote auch noch süffig ist. Eins der besten Baltikas. Test vom 12.8.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 9,9,9,12,11,10 - 9,95

yngwie (16423) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 2, 2013
Bottle. A lightly reddish beer, dark brown to black in color, and with a dense, beige head on top. Coffee, roasted malts, some sweetness and some caramel in the arome. Medium to full body, soft on the palate, pleasant carbonation. Coffee, roasted malt and some dried fruits in the flavor, a touch of prunes. Lasting finish. A nice one, tasteful and pleasant. Well worth a revisit. 130202
