Beerconnaiseur (155) - BELGIUM - MAR 2, 2015
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!

flip_soeperman (667) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 22, 2015
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.

Rune (8730) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 25, 2014
Draught, taster at the Gänstaller brewery, many thanks to Andreas. A beige head with big bubbles. Jet black coloured body. Roasted dark malty aroma added by dried fruits. Rich taste of grainy chocolate, nuts, coffee and prunes. Roasted malty, mid-sweet, finish with alcohol warmth. Full bodied. Lovely sipper (Hallerndorf 11.10.2014).

finol (2287) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 9, 2014
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.
