suurjuust (1788) - ESTONIA - NOV 8, 2014
Dark brown to black, small beige head. Nose is roast, malt, dried fruit, cocoa notes. Flavor is roast, malt, chocolate, sweet and bready notes, warm roasty bitterness and dark chocolate in the finish. Smooth palate, flavorful, easy to drink.

Kauge (691) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 4, 2014
Bottle from Špunka in Tallinn (€ 2,86). BB 10/05/2015. Label features a lone wolf, just strolling, not howling at the moon as depicted here. Pours dark brown, appears black, hm, or rather chestnut in the glass, clear ruby against light. Head light beige, fizzy, disappears after sticking around the edge for a few minutes. Nose - even straight from the fridge - strikes as intensely chocolaty, but then gets maltier, acquiring notes of dark fruits, thick caramel, red berries, faint smokiness (like smoked plums) - it’s quite deep and complex. Taste is similarily - pleasingly! - chocolaty, then caramel and dark fruits, some roasted malts. Nice! Palate ashy dry, body medium, carbonation perfect for the style, mouthfeel sticky, syrupy. Very modest bitterness in the finish. Alcohol only hintingly present. This is a superb Baltic Porter!

soolash (197) - POLAND - NOV 1, 2014
Butelka 0,5 l. Nowa odsłona w postaci nowej butelki z nową etykietą (nie taka jak na załączonym obrazku). Szczerze mówiąc, rozczarowałem się nieco, bo znam tego portera doskonale i wydaje mi się, że poprzednie odsłony były o niebo lepsze. Zaliczałem go do 3 najlepszych polskich porterów bałtyckich. A tu: aromat ładny, śliwka w czekoladzie. Piana beżowa, ale średnio pęcherzykowa, szybko zanikająca, brak lejsingu :-(. Kolor ciemny, brunatny z rubinowym odcieniem, przejrzysty. Smak lekko słodki z niewielką goryczką. Małe wysycenie, dobra pijalność. Alkohol ładnie ukryty. Porter bardzo dobry, ale mam obawy, ze gorszy niż wcześniejsze warki.

0,5L bottle, BB 23.11.2014. Pours black with tan head. The head stays for a moment. Aroma is roast, fruits, coffee. Flavor is sweet, roast, dark chocolate, fruits, apples, malt, slight alcohol, some smoky notes. Overall: great brew, very easy to drink.

gegwilson (2102) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 12, 2014
Bottle in the Lama Café, Gdansk. Pours deep brown with a thin tan head that fades to almost nothing. A nice sticky sweet start with a little spice goves way to a good coffee and liquorice finish. Good beer.

Pelzky (100) - Szczecin, POLAND - OCT 11, 2014
Very dark brown color & clear with small, beige head (which is only flaw about this beer when it comes to its appearance) and poor lacing. Very rich and complex aroma. There are chocolate, malts, loads of dried plums & raisins, some woody and smoked notes and a pleasant hint of alcohol. Taste has mostly the same notes also it’s very well balanced. Carbonation is just perfect. Mouthfeel is really velvety. Despite high abv and complex aroma and taste it’s quite drinkable. Great baltic porter.

didierlewallon (229) - ponferrada, SPAIN - OCT 11, 2014
Es una cerveza de color negra con destellos de rubí con una buena espuma de color beige. Aroma de malta tostada, caramelos, frutos secos y pasas. El sabor es como el aroma, toque de alcohol. Amargor medio y notable. Muy buena cerveza Porter.

Not bad. Coffee, malts, slightly bitter, Despite 9% ABV it’s drinkable. I’ve had better, but definitely there’s nothing wrong with this porter.

BagerPL (124) - - SEP 30, 2014
Aromat nic do zarzucenia slodowe karmelowe, delikatne cherry, tak samo w smaku plus suszone sliwki. Posmak goryczka alkoholowa, mogloby byc jej nieco mniej. Ogolne wrazenie pozytywne.
