3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark brown with a creamy tan head. Aroma is caramel, chocolate, toasted malts, vanilla, fruit. Medium bodied. Flavor is caramel, chocolate, light sour fruit, vanilla, dark fruit. Well hidden alcohol. Surprisingly tasty. A bargain at <$3 for a pint bottle. Not an intense baltic porter but a nice, easy going baltic. Good beer.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Wow. caramel, sweet malt, chocolate, molasses- The high alcohol is completely masked by the sweet satisfying flavor. This is a great drinking porter! Don’t let the price fool you! This is inexpensive excellence. And, a FULL PINT of easy drinking 9.4 ABV for a little over a buck and a half is really a "no-brainer".

500ml bottle. Pours dark brown, closer to a brown ale than stout. Small tan head dissipates quickly. Aroma is sweet, chocolate, coffee, prunes, liquorice. Taste is very much the same. Dry, but sweet with big liqourice hits. A little bit of alcohol burn, but very smooth drinking.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Head dissipated quickly with a dark black color. Carbonation is perfect for a porter. Just enough to add to the mild smooth taste. Has a very fine sweetness in the middle. Can taste a molasses in the middle. Very little if any IBUs detected. Almost a cola taste at the finish. Not sure if this can age well but going to try!!
