Rich, roasty and very full bodied. Neuzeller Porter is brewed in the grand tradition of Eastern European porters.

Kauge (342) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 22, 2014
Bottle from eDrinks in Tallinn (€ 1,86). BB 11.06.2015. Pours very dark brown, black coffee colour in the glass, weak hue of ruby against light. Head big but drops fast into a thin layer, light beige, leaves beautiful lacing. Nose is intense black bread crust, but also coffee and chocolate rich in cocoa, ash, and a tingle of spiciness. The roastiness kind of reminds me of fried vegetables, fried potatoes maybe. Taste semisweet - chocolaty-roasty-malty, dark fruits. Sweetens as it warms. Medium to full body, palate sticky and grainy, carbonation very much present but not dominant, mouthfeel smooth and soft. No alcohol detectable. Beautiful!

kaups (29) - ESTONIA - OCT 14, 2014
Bottle @ De Tolly joogipood, Tartu, Estonia. Pours with light brown head that reduces quickly. Aroma of raisins,malt, chocolate, vanilla, hint of coffee. Taste brings up the breadyness, burnt/roasted notes of malt, taste of slight alcohol. Aftertaste has some cherry in it, bready bitterness. Overall I think it´s a good porter.

nilsas (1717) - Bryne, NORWAY - JUN 18, 2014
Duft av røyk, vanilje, frukter og litt honning. Dyp sort farge. Dekkende brunt skum, noe heng langs kant. God litt fruktig smak med en anelse vanilje og mango.

500 ml bottle, clear dark brown color with thin toffee head. first taste are roast malt medium bitter chocolate and caramel notes. taste is medium bitter with espresso coffee and little sweetness from caramel. this one is a bit different baltic porter from eastern europe porters because the most aroma is light bitter roast malts with coffee and chocolate notes, no bread or other ingredients. tasty porter

martjoobolut (934) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 20, 2014
UPDATED: MAY 21, 2014 0,5L bottle, BB 14.01.15. Pours very dark brown with big tan head. The head stays for some time. Aroma is dark chocolate, roast, creamy, and sweet. Taste is sweet, mild bitter, roast, alcohol, and licorice. Overall: drinkable. Alcohol is slightly too noticeable and I would prefer more body.

thirstyrabbit (1143) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 3, 2014
Bottle. Dark brown body, small beige head. Aroma has soft roast with sweet molasses and honey. Smooth. Medium thick mouthfeel (as opposed to the heavier mouthfeel of some local Baltic Porters). Taste has sweet dark malts with toffee and cola. Good balance: I like this sweetness and prefer it to the more extreme "vinous burnt sugar" tastes that are found in some other Baltic Porters. Tasty and easily sessionable. Quite cheap too.
