2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: DEC 25, 2013 Bottle 500 ml. Sweet fruits and caramel aroma. Too sweet taste, sugar-sugar baby, but where are rich taste? Baltic porter? Seriously? So sad.

24th September 2015
Pre Borefts Tasting at ABC Beers, Den Haag. Clear amber beer, small cream colour head. Airy palate, semi dry. Sweet malts, creamy caramel. Touch of paper. Decent tangy fruits. Airy finish brings mild spice. Appeals to my sweet beer tooth.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle @ Pre-Borefts Tasting, courtesy of the European Crew! Pours a reddish brown beer with a medium sized, off white head on top. Aroma is slightly tart, some coffee and roast. Flavor has light chocolate, milk and a nice malty, thick moutfheel. There is some buttery aftertaste here, which is unfortunate. Nice, but a bit strange.
