4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
What a full and layered array of aromas! Draf, wort, grass, dark cane sugar, melasse, candi. Soft mouthfeel with at start the alpha acids kicking in some bitterness, slowly shifting to a malty taste and subtle aftertaste of hops and herbal flavours. The hops go from a subtle smell to an interesting taste. This baltic porter is a bit watery, which makes it very drinkable. It’s different + has has a stunning nose - even some pepper after some sniffs. Lovely!

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very complex beer. More on the side of a bock then a porter, not very roasted in flavour yet full bodied and viscous. Has some sweetness of a quadruple but with more bitterness. Very nice layered beer.

Bottle at Akkurat.
Heavy rather vinous aroma.
Wow, this is a complex blend between styles, tastes like a smoked, like a heavy bock or light barley wine and like a porter. Also some hop bitterness is present. Yet it holds toghether some how.
