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".

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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!!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours black with a lite tan colored head that tried to stick to the sides of the glass. At first I had some faint hop aromas, but the caramel and toffee takes over. Toffee and molasses flavors, mild sweetness with some licorice. Mild sweetness with some bitterness balance. Clean finish, alcohol well hidden. Easy to drink.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours near black with a beige head. Sweet and lightly roasted malts, just a hint of soy sauce, and a quick roasty finish. Not bad.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a cola color with a tan head. Aroma of toffee, anise, some light roast. Mouthfeel is very thin... this one is easy to pound. No alcohol detected, even though the label says 9.8%. Very drinkable, if a bit simple. You can definitely tell this is a Baltic porter with a lager yeast. Very good. Fuck, I love me some Baltic porters.
