Bottle in Baltimore. Roasty malts in the aroma, chocolate, caramel and some bready yeast. Flavor is quite sweet, sugary malts and with a decent body. Only a bit boring.

355ml bottle, trade with Skinnyviking. Spotty lacing from a slowly declining beige head. Clear dark brown coloured body. Sweet caramel aroma, slightly roasted. Rather sweet flavours of brown and black malts, chocolate and cocoa to the fore. Smooth ending. Tasty, gets a tad too sweet after a few sips (shared with Finn, Tromsø 08.04.2015).

Very good Baltic. Great aroma, especially when warming. Nothing special in color, but flavor was thick and it coats the mouth. I can have one due to the rich nature. Had in 12 oz bottle

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Some dark chocolate and light roast. Decently balanced, but very light on palate and overall aroma. Easy to drink but not a huge explosion of taste. Pours black with good mocha head and lacing. Finishes with light sweetness and some bitterness. Thick consistency. Bottle.

Shared 355 ml bottle at local tasting. Dark brown colour, moderate beige head. Caramel and chocolate in the aroma. Medium sweet flavour, plenty of caramel, also some chocolate, the roasty notes are very moderate. Fair enough.
