Pours black with a tan head. Aroma is roast, cola and licorice. Taste is sweeter then expected with some mild acidic tartness. Medium bodied with the alcohol well hidden, thin texture and soft carbonation.

Surprisingly little aroma. Sweet and malty. Definitely an enjoyable sweet beer.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: MAR 8, 2014 Bottle. Dark brown, but not quite inky, with a thin brown head. Aroma is sweet, but in a way that isnít entirely appealing, cola-ish with caramel and dark fruits. Tootsie Rolls! That;s what Iím getting here! And Iím not crazy about it. The palate is much the same, more caramel, very little roast, and with a dusty, flinty dryness in the finish. Just okay.

This has a very distinct smell, like licorice or something else I canít quite name. The taste is interesting, I get the malt flavor as well as a sour note like black licorice, as well as other flavors I canít quite pinpoint. It does seem a bit thick on the palate, but enjoyable when sipped.

Bottle. Pours almost opaque amber, appears black in the glass. Light tan head, dissipates to the edges, which stick around. Smells like the sweeter end of the porter spectrum. Taste is sharp but not bitter, simple and to the point. Smoother than I expected. Nice sipping porter.

16.9 bottle shared poured a medium brown yet translucent with light brown head. The aroma is roasted malts and chocolate and coffee and licorice. Not necessarily in that order. The flavor is quite delicious. Itís sweet without over doing it. Roasted malts, lots of black licorice and chocolate. Blended together very well. Overall impressed with this porter. Donít let looks deceive you.

This is a nice, tradition baltic porter. Very dark, very sweet and licoricey. Lots of chocolate finish.

Pours dark brown, almost black. Thick, foamy, tan head that stays forever. Copious lacing. Nose is dark chocolate malt.Taste is nicely bitter chocolaty roast with rich, voluptuous sweetness underneath. Full body, lively carbonation, cocoa finish. This bottle must have aged nicely in transport. Delicious!
