3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a dark brown colour with a creamy nutbrown head. Aroma of roasted malts, some coffee and leaves. Flavour is mainly dominated of the roasted malts, with some chocolate and coffee notes and some dough in the end. Slick mouthfeel, quite low carbonation for a baltic porter and a medium body. Overall a good beer, maybe a bit boring.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A pitch black body covered by a quickly settling brown head. Nose has heavy notes of chokolate, coffee, caramel and rye. Taste is quite sweet so much as to almost feel cloying. The finish is surprisingly lightly bitter and dry. Carbonation is fairly low and palate feels quite heavy. A nice, very rich baltic porter.

A really nice and flavourful porter. I really enjoy this style. Pours a dark cola colour. Crazy amounts of head on this. Aromas of dark malts, dark fruits, coffee, dark chocolate. Nice bitter and sweet flavours. Delicious.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Black with small, beige head. In aroma pumpernickel and bready notes, also low roastiness and fruitiness. In taste roasted malts, again pumpernickel and fruitiness (dried fruits). Soft carbonation, sweet in the end. Lacking a bit body in my opinion (it’s only 17,5 Plato). But in overall ok.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours black with a small head. Aroma is not very complex: mainly aroma of pumpernickel bread with some fruity notes. Taste of roasted malts, pumpernickel and more fruity than the aroma. Medium, soft carbonation, quite sweet finish. Not a bad beer, but in comparision to stronger baltic porters (>20 Plato) is not as good.

500 ml bottle. Earthy aroma, dark dried berries. Lovely sweet / bitter taste, it begins with sweet plums, figs, raisins and goes into chocolate, coffee, and tobacco. Very smooth and creamy taste. Well-balanced flavors.

Nothing fancy here, yet quite smooth and well balanced brew. Lovely roasted malt background, decent coffee impact, choco, light licorice, some light citrusy fruitiness lingering around, vanilla. Moderate sweet with moderate bitterness. Feels quite smooth. Lovely brew.
