dark, coffee-like colour; brownish creamy head; aroma of roasted malt and sugar, with berries and some sourness; taste of roasted sugar and malts again, coffee and significand bitter aftertaste; correct porter; I really enjoyed it despite that I am not a porter-fan.

Aroma was a hint of dark fruit giving way to roast. Taste, is similarly powered by the roast, but giving way to coffee with a hing of vanilla, and a roast and cherry finish. Mouthfeel was a little watery given the style and weight. A nice beer I would have again.

Bottle from Amstein, Switzerland, missing batch info
Black color with medium sized beige head. The aroma is mild, some roasted malt, almost ashes, and luckily also some biscuit. Lean body, with some roasted malt flavor, light coffee, dry mouthfeel, some ashes, and ordinary bitterness; light sourness in the final.
Calling it a Porter is a bit stretchy. Correct beer, nothing exciting.

Pours light carbonated brownish black. Kind of malty smoking aroma. Not much taste on the finish but a good beer.

Unmistakably BrewDog, unmistakably Baltic. B B B. Black, burnt and a hint of cherry (bugger, berries would have been better). Ripper.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap @ Kaisla, Helsinki 14022013. Pours black with a stylish, dark latte-colored head. Aroma is roast and coffee, lightly sour, slight dark fruits. Taste is lightly sour and sweet. There’s roast and coffee and chocolate - the usual porter stuff. But also fruitiness, dark fruits, light yeast and lactose. Something that makes this its own beast. A bit cherry-like sourness that really brings this up a notch. Palate is light, a bit too light for the flavor. One of the better Brewdogs I’ve had though.
