Bottle from Globus Lausanne. Copper with a small head. Sweet raisins and nuts aroma. The flavours are cloyingly sweet, though with the same raisins and nuts character. Not able to finish this "bock on speed". Sorry.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled 33cl. It pours a copper beer with a small white head. A lot of sediment detectable. Sweet nose of alcohol, walnuts, cherries, port, peaches and wood. An extremely interesting aroma. Maybe slightly salty? The first impression of the taste consists of an unpleasant metallic component. The beer reminds me of a malt liquor. Very alcoholic with some caramel showing up. Buttery with exotic fruits appearing. Nicely peppery. Some salty elements sneaking in. This beer really doesn’t look or taste like porter- Amber in color. A lot of marmite in the finish which is very pleasant, I must admit. All in all a very interesting beer. Good, light bodied and surprisingly easy drinkable. A lot of character to it. Better than the Samichlaus beer.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottle 33 cl) Courtesy of Thomas_E. Pours a cloudy, amber golden with tiny impurities. Small, rough, off-white head. Sweetish aroma of overripe fruit and alcohol. Quite full-bodied with a soft mouthfeel and a little low in carbonation. Sweetish, roasted malt accents and some overripe fruit. The finish is alcoholic with some bitternes. Nowhere close to being an Imperial Stout, as the back label claims. And actually closer to a Samichlaus-style Doppelbock than a Baltic Borter. But still quite an enjoyable beer. 281107
