4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Beer Ritz, Leeds, drunk on Burns night with a plate of Haggis and Orkney Clapshot! Dark brown pour with a thin tan head. Enticingly full aroma with sweet malts, dark fruit and booze evident. Similar story in the flavour with some coffee and chocolate notes, really tasty stuff. Great balance overall with the alcohol well masked. Top class porter, would like more of this.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: JUN 23, 2013 Bottles from Peckhams & Alesela. Strong aroma of tar alcohol & malts. Almost black colour. Fruity toffee malt flavour. Lingering sweet aftertaste. A complex interesting ale which Iím sorry is not really to my taste.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask @ Bow Bar. Dark brown. Very rich, burnt fruitcake drizzled with molasses aroma. Very rich, fruity, burnt palate with lots of sweet malt. The body is a bit oily like there was diacetyl, but Iím not tasting any so Iíll let it slide. Rich, stinging notes. Definitely a Baltic character, but a little different too - unique. The palate, however, is all wrong on cask. Slick and slimey. 8-4-5-2-13 = 3.2
Bottle. Medium brown. Fairly assertive aroma is rich, with lots of dark sugars and a hint of fruitiness. Starts smooth, with dark sugars but then gets richly fruity with a shot of alcohol late. I think the body and palate are better in the bottle, and more suited to this beer. 7-3-7-4-15 = 3.6.
Score is an amalgam of cask and bottle.
