4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a pitch black, with a billowy mocha head. The aroma has rich malt notes of coffee, espresso, and nuts. Also notes of smoke, vanilla, liquorice, leathery and spice. Upon tasting, I am blasted with a rich sweet sticky malts with notes of sweet chocolate, esters, woody tannins, spice, and lingering liquorice notes. The palate is slick and resinous, with a delicious linger of sweet tang. This is a spectacular Baltic, quite simply a masterpiece!!
