yngwie (13214) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 30, 2012
Bottle. A reddish dark brown beer, looking clear, and it’s topped by a minimal sized dark beige head. The aroma has some butterscotch, as well as toffee and molasses. Sweetness, a solid dose of licorice, some roasted malts, a faint alcohol touch and molasses in the flavor. Full body, lightly sticky on the palate. Roasted end. Overall, certainly a nice Baltic porter. 110610

laiti (5572) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 2, 2012
UPDATED: JUL 13, 2013 50 cl bottle @ Gastropub Nordic, BBE 16.03.2013
Aroma is sweet with syrup, roasted notes, honey and cocoa. Also hints of metal. Flavour has well roasted malt, some dark chocolate. Very sweet, sugary finish with coffee. A bit too much on the sweet side but good anyway. Drinking big amounts this would be challenging though. 6+4+7+3+15=3.5

50 cl bottle @ HeBF’13, BBE 16.11.2013
Aroma has well roastiness, cocoa, grilled meat, smoke and distant spicy notes. Flavour has well roasted malt, some spicy notes, grilled meat with BBQ sauce, coffee and some cocoa. Smooth and nice, better than I remembered. Still too sweet though.
7+4+7+4+15=3.7

Skinnyviking (6793) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 19, 2013
Bottle. Small creamy light brown head. Pitch black body. Choccolate coffee liquorice roasted aroma and flavor with a surprisingly solid body. Well balanced with a nice hops bitterness. Low carbonation. Long bitter sweet finish. Alcohol level seemed just right.

derBreslauer (133) - Wroclaw, POLAND - SEP 28, 2013
Black body with rocky and creamy head. Very good looking beer. It smells also very good. Intensive aroma is dominated by roasted malts and caramel at the front. On the bottom there are some plum and sweet cherry notes. Tastes caramel and cherry. Alcohol is noticeable, but it’s pleasant. Very weak bitterness. Very good and solid porter. Really worth trying.

Idiosynkrasie (3636) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUL 28, 2014
500ml bottle [Tanja & Verena, thank you very much again, you have a knack for detecting a gem on every journey you take]. Darkest brown colour with late awakening, average to huge, thick, creamy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, tan head. Spicy dark malty aroma has notes of roast, dark chocolate, lovage, treacle, liquorice. Taste is moderately sweet dark malty, hints of treacle, dark chocolate, also a dry, roasty dark malty as well as a slightly nuttily touch, some liquorice; oily texture, sticky palate. Rich but not complex (in Luhmann definition: a system is complex iff not all components of the system are directly connected to each other), i.e. balanced and integrated.
