330 ml bottle from trade with kermis. Thanks Chris! Dark brown almost black color with beige head. Roasted malty aroma, dark dried fruits, caramel, bready, wood, licorice, light chocolate. Sweet and bitter taste like aroma. Medium oily body with soft carbonation.

pivnizub (10178) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - APR 16, 2016
Fläschchen: Very deep amber coloured, presumably hazy, smaller lacy off-white head; sweetish nose of dried fruits, leather and dried cèpes; solid sweet-bitter flavour, surely full bodied; lingering drier and more hoppy finish, dried fruits and leather detectable again. Very good, what else…

Samuel214 (603) - SWEDEN - MAR 22, 2016
UPDATED: MAY 14, 2016 Smakprov på Närke Kulturbryggeri. Söta toner från bränt socker, muscovado, kola och torkad frukt möter en något brändare, bittrare ton av mörkrostat kaffe, tjära, chark och soja i bakgrunden. Stor, men lättdrucken.

Swaroga (2111) - Gdańsk, POLAND - JAN 3, 2016
Baltic Porter in green bottle is a rare combination. The beer is dark brown with a very small head. It has a strong aroma of milk chocolate, light coffee with lots of sugar, some dark toffee and soy sauce. Flavor is mellow which makes this beer easy to drink. I was expecting some more dark profile out of it. Some liitle soy sauce and vegetables doesn’t make it a great porter but still it’s not at all dramatic. I’m beong a bit too picky. Cheers.

Bottle sample at a tasting at troubles’s place. Thanks DSG. Brownish with beige head. Aroma of dried fruits, raisin and date. Bittersweet flavor, a bit alcoholic, notes of date and soy sauce, a bit salty with some roastiness. Medium-bodied, smooth. Very nice.

33 cl bottle @ home
Aroma has licorice, smoke, leather shoes and some fruitiness. Somewhat smooth palate. Flavour has licorice, smoke, some sharp alcohol, hops and some minerals. The alcohol is a bit too strong here. Definitely not bad still.

Black with a medium, quickly diminishing, beige head. Aroma of yeast, roast malt, fruit. Taste is sweet with a bitter finish. Full body, thick oily texture, low carbonation. Nice beer.
