1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Dark brown body with small head. Weak alcohol and malt aroma. Tastes sweet, mostly caramel. But it’s watery. Weak and tasteless beer.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Weak aroma, nice color and robust head. Awful taste. Wet rag, artificial fruit and some skunky stuff. Down the drain.

Sehr fruchtiger Geruch, Geschmack dann süßlich mit Kirschenton. Dabei etwas wässrig. Den Zucker kann man deutlich schmecken.
Schmeckt extrem wie Radler ohne Zitrone.

0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
500ml bottle bought at Gorgeous Wing & Cigar in Yuen Long.
Clear blackish brown colour; One finger head and crumpety light beige foam which last for 2 minutes; Small sticky lacing and notable slight carbonation; Pungent nose of skunk and lager malt, with sugar, chocolate, cream, and strong straw; Plain sweet taste of light roasted malt, with sugar syrup, strong wet cardboard, chalk dust, coca cola, and hint of citrus / VERY strong straw; Light body, watery palate; Taste profile is cheap cola fused with sugar syrup and lightly roasted malt and disguises it as beer, let alone Baltic Porter. To add insult to injury, it also full of lasting wet cardboard and chalk dust. Terrible… Hoppiness is skunky hops with very strong straw nose, taste is no citrus and strong grass, and zero bitterness. Just plain sugar finish. Wet after taste, very sweet and chalky to mouth.
Comments: I thought I had a pretty bad sweet dark beer in Landskron Pupen - Schultzes Schwarzes last night, but this one take the top honour as THE WORST dark beer I have - cheap coca with plain sugar sweetness, skunk nose, loads of wet cardboard, and no bitterness. The salesperson at Gorgeous told me this one is very suited with ladies and casual drinkers who don’t like bitterness. How nice for an introduction and now you have been warned: a drain pours no-brainer!

1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle from GBBF 2013 at mR_fr0g’s. Didn’t make much in the way of tasting notes on this, just pure sweetness. Closer to root beer than porter, I’m not sure if this is some acquired taste that no one in the UK has, but this isn’t for me at all... yuck!

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
A sweeter darker porter with hints of cherries and an okay mouthfeel. Head could be larger but highly drinkable, hints of grape with a wet finish.

Bottle from gbbf 2013. Caramel ruby red colour with a reluctant white head. Aroma is stale salty malt. Flavout is sweet malt and cardboard. Really very bad. Reminds me of karmi.

Terrible beer... Nothing to do with a real porter, too sweet no roasted or bitter aroma or flavor!
