Reminded me of a simple sweet stout. Not much complexity--gulpable. A good beginner's introduction to Porter, but not quite the real thing.

HerrBierkoenig (489) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUN 1, 2015
From 0,5l bottle, BBD: 31.07.15 Pours clear dark brown liquid, big frothy tan to brown head, fell down quickly, fizzy impression. Aroma: caramel, marzipan, malty, chocolate, coffee, Taste: medium sweet, medium bitter, light to medium sour, malty, chocolate, light espresso, plums, Palate: medium body, slick to oily texture, average to lively carbonation, medium long chocolate roasty finish. Overall: good, relatively drinkable for such big brewery. But still, would appreciate more complex notes, more refined body, lower carbonation, better mouthfeel...

pinkzambia (1618) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 26, 2015
Bottle: Not what I’m looking for when I want a Baltic porter. This is basicaly a dark lager. It wasn’t a nasty flavor, just super light and overly malty. Let me just say how happy I am that I live in America and not St. Petersburg.

bartzluke (217) - Oklahoma, USA - MAY 15, 2015
6 oz pour from chilled bottle into shaker pint. Black and opaque with a moderate tan head. Medium body. A bit dry with some caramel sweetness. Toffee, nuts, maybe a bit of dark fruit, a little earthy. Pretty good porter.

Zlotta (252) - Bonn, GERMANY - MAY 14, 2015
0,5 l bottle from Klein Rusland in Amersfoort, bottled on 31/10/2014. Clear, very dark red to black with a medium large, creamy, slowly diminishing, tan head. Pleasant aroma of dark chocolate, currant, plums and cherries. Sweetish-fruity taste of dark chocolate, currant, cherries and plums. Short, just slightly bitter, toasted finish. Medium body, slightly creamy mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Nice and easy to drink, could still be a bit more intense or full-bodied.

Werckmeister (701) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - MAY 9, 2015
bottle at home bought at random russian store in Vienna. BB 13.05.2015. black color, small coffee-colored head. smells malty roasty, but also some malty sweetness, coffee, light chocolate, bit dusty, some dried fruits, very light smoke notes. medium body, very lively carbonation, rather light body but kinda heavy on the finish. light smoke notes, lightly sour, some malty sweet and roastiness, licorize, caramel. roasty / sweet / light sticky finish. OK, a bit too bitter sweet for my liking. Also feels a bit heavy on the finish. Probably freshness plays a role here, as bottle is close to BB-date.

gripweed57 (917) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - MAY 2, 2015
500 ml bottle. Translucent redish brown color. Big foamy tan head. Sweet roasted malt nose, reminiscent of licorice and soy sauce. Flavor is more of the same. Licorice and soy sauce with additional notes of sweet dark coffee. Mid taste has notes of whiskey and spicy hops., Finish is smooth and chocolaty. Dry winey aftertaste. Quite good.
