33cl bottle, served in snifter glass. Poured a dark brown with a two finger tan head. Aromas of dark chocolate, licorice, caramel, roasted coffee beans. Taste: pretty much a continuation of the aromas, with notes of vanilla, dates, Haagse Hopjes, some herbal notes. Softly carbonated, a light to medium body with a long bittersweet finish. A very good Porter.

Had a bottle at Põrgu in Tallinn recently. Light brown, clear, small scattered head. Smelled and tasted very un-portery, more like a BIPA, pretty bitter, and more bready than roasty, dryish bready finish. Medium carbonation. Not impressed, but overall not bad. Pretty easy-drinking.

33cl bottle from Beerfox/Callous Alus, Riga. Warm up for the a-ha concert. Pours dark brown with a beige looking head. Mild roasty aroma with caramel, some ripe dark fruits and hints of licorice and wood. Sweet and round with moderate flavour intensity and a fairly light bitterness. Alcohol content not too obvious. Easy to drink and fairly tasty.
