3.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: DEC 28, 2004 Bottled, thanks Rastacouere! Very black, no head. Lovely aroma of chocolate and grapefruit. Reasonably dry, full bodied, some moilasses and chocolate punch. Some bitterness. Complex, but confusing. Baltic porters are usually very bold, simple beers, this one shoots for finer details and complexity, and gets a bit lost somewhere on the way. An interesting experimental beer though.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottles, 2005 and 2006. Both poured thick and brown with strong, beige heads. Aroma of dark, roasted malts, coffee and bitter chocolate. Sweet flavor with lots of mocha, some tartness, and bits of smoke. Full bodied with soft, smooth carbonation. Finishes with lightly dry roast, chocolate sweetness and lingering smoke. The ’06 seemed a bit thinner and more tart, while the ’05 was more relaxed and attenuated. I give the ’05 a 4.3 and the ’06 a 3.9.

Opaque black, no head. Roasted nose with loads of licorice. Roasted barley, licorice with dry and almost metallic flavor. Long roasted aftertaste. A bit too simple to be great.
