lagermonkey (725) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JUN 6, 2010
Poured 12/2009 Pours black as night with a thin brown head that quickly evaporates to nothing at all. Smells of roasty malt, mixed with dark fruit and a just hint of smoke. No surprises in the mouth as it reflects the nose almost perfectly. Roasty and dark fruit (raisiny) with a fairly chewy body but creamy as well. The roasted malt and fruit mix nicely and the creamy texture makes it go down smooth. The alcohol sneaks up on you a bit since there’s nary a hint of booziness. Creamy, mocha-like finish and a lingering roastiness in the aftertaste. It’s as straightforward as a Baltic Porter can be, balanced the fruitiness and the roastiness well and is smooth as velvet. What’s not to like? Six years is a long time to wait between samples...but I think they have improved the recipe since then

The color is clear dark brown with tan head. Aroma chocolate, and hint of licorice. Taste is medium sweet, a bit smokey, notes of chocolate and licorice. Quite good porter, but not My favourite.

Bottle 35,5 cl. Pours a clear, warm reddish brown with a beige head. Sweet, dark, dried fruit aroma. Medium body, sweet and rich dark dried fruit, a little vanilla. Very little roastiness. Not much of a Baltic Porter. 080715

bkurtz (1018) - PERU - JUN 22, 2015
Bottle - Pours a dark, clear brown with a big creamy, mostly lasting head with some big carb bubbles. Aromas of sweet dried fruits and licorice. Velvet mouth feel with aromas continuing in the taste. A bit sweet, but a "full" 6% beer.
