3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
[At Stockholm Beer Festival 2005] An almost opaque brown beer with a nice brown head. The aroma is sweet with lots of notes of roasted malt. The flavor is sweet roasted giving it notes of chocolate, but the alcohol is also present. The roastiness gives it a dry end, with an aftertaste of coffee.

Keg @ Stockholm Beer Festival 2005 Rating # 600
Very dark and very aromatic with chocolate, (hard) toasted bread, some vanila, some red berries and other stuff. Rich head. Palate is full bodied, Flavours it got plenty. As with the aroma lots of stuf and a dry finnish even if the beer itself is on the sweet side. The alco content could not be tasted in most of the samples (some though, did have this off flavour for some unknown reason.) A new favourite from my favourite brewery. Hope they will continue this velvety Baltic Porter. (No plans at present)

This is not a baltic porter per se. Almost opaque black, creamy coffee head. Roasted, tobacco nose. Chocolaty, roasted with long roasted aftertaste. Well-balanced, enjoyable (imperial) stout.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught. Black colour, mediumsized brown head. Hoppy fruity roasted malt in aroma. Roasted malt and old coffee with caramellish hints in flavour. A bit wheat too. Dryness at one point but then turns into a bit full and sticky palate. Overall very good one. Warming finish (of alcohol).
