2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Aroma of caramel, sugar, dark bread and a subtle note of roast. Very dunkel-ish. Light tart, rather watery for this style, very sweet. The upside - the finish, a combination of caramel, coffee and nuts. The downside - the watery texture and the solvent-like alcohol note that just doesn’t seem to fade off. Not a good beer certainly.

Bottle from Eldesmadre, thanks! Dark brown color. Chocolate, licorice and apple syrup in both aroma and flavor. Malty sweet, nutty flavor. Thinnish. Slightly alcoholic. Rather onedimensional.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
a big hitter on the alcohol front at a whopping 9.5%ABV! For a beer with so much booze in it, I was surprised at how easy it was to drink, very smooth and a treat for me was the distinct liquorice flavours that abound - yes Bertie Bassett is one of my best friends!

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Brown with ruby highlights, overall pretty clear in the glass. Nice head initially, lasts a bit. Aroma has roasted grain with a minimum of sugar notes - thankfully - and even a little woodiness. Again, thankfully. A little wet cardboard oxidation in the flavor. Definitely not as rich and fruity a Baltic porter as some, which is kinda nice. Reminds me just a little of the raisiny, slightly sour quality of the Southampton version, which also didn’t have an over-the-top body or dark color. Good. Doesn’t taste or seem like 9% at all.
OK, well, it doesn’t seem like 9% while cold. As it warms the alcohol is stronger, yet still OK - but it gets sticky in the mouth and acrid a bit.

Bottle. Brown color with creamy head. Caramel and roasted malt aroma. Flavor is little bit smoky, caramel and some like coffee. Nice bitter aftertaste. Good. And if you drink after it pils without flavor ...
