3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught @ Oluttupa Viisi Penniš, Helsinki
Pours pitch black with a nice foamy brown head. Aroma of roasted malts, sweet licorice, soy sauce and hints of chocolate. Taste is sweet and slick with some roastiness and licorice notes, hints of molasses and soy sauce. Finish is smooth and slightly roasty with some hints of molasses, sweet licorice and warming alcohol. Okay, perhaps a bit too sweet and smooth for a baltic porter. Still quite a nice winter warmer.
