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

Brewhemia (209) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 16, 2016
Dark brown with brown head. Sweet aroma of honey and dark sugar and a faint toasty aroma. Too sweet an aroma to my liking. The taste is less sweet than expected. Lots of sweetness but enough roasted maltiness to add some balance. Flavors of prunes and other dried fruits in the finish. Good taste. Carbonation quickly vanishes.
