3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at Jan & Charlottes tasting, Ulfborg, Denmark 09.04.11 cheers Jan & Charlotte This is aged in port wine barrels apparently, however it’s quite subtle as I didn’t really pick this up too much especially not on the nose which yes showed some but not much. Pours dark brown with a tan head, as Craig mentioned this looks a little thin. Some bonfire toffee, warmth from the alcohol, chewy sweet. Not fantastic but a good label. A6 A4 T7 P4 Ov14 3.5

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber pours deep mahogany with tan head. The aroma is modest in strength offering up dark roasted malts, mild chocolate, a touch of molasses and crusty caramel followed by spicy oak. The taste is pretty smooth with even notes of prunes, figs, chocolate, mild tart red wine like notes and then a sense of wood into the finish.

Bouteille partagée avec Ibrew2or3.
couleur brune claire, mousse est fine et de ton beige.
Malt et caramel avec des notes de fruits noirs allant vers la figue et date. Garde une certaine douceur au palais et l’on peut y noter un peu l’usage du tonneau de Porto et donne à cette bière ce goût fruité.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle:   Cola in color, large foamy beige head, nice lacing.   Pale roasted malts, chocolate, cocoa,
and very slight vinous like aromas.   Not a strong roast, fairly soft.   Smidgen of cocoa or chocolate on the
tongue.   I am getting some raisin like presense, with some alcohol warming.   Fairly smooth, body and
mouthfeel are moderate.   Not a thick beer by any means, but its at least smooth.   Seems light in flavor for
a Baltic Porter.   A bit more alcohol is noticeable too as its warming on the back of the tongue.   Almost has
a slight sour aspect to it, well tart.   As it warms I get a little woodiness out of it.   Good, different,
but certainly not a heavy example.   Thanks Ron!

Dark brown with a fizzy tan head and soda-like carbonation. Aroma and taste of coffee and chocolate with a hint of vanilla but disappointingly almost no port barrel evident.
