2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Butelka zakupiona w Tesco Ostrava. Piana obfita, drobna. W smaku: słodka czekolada, czarna kawa, ciemne owoce: śliwka, rodzynki oraz palony karmel. Goryczka słaba. Niestety wyczuwalne żelazo (potwierdził to test na skórze) Być może jeśli poleżakuje dłużej to będzie bardziej wytrawny, ale tak to niestety nie ujmuje się do pozostałych porterów bałtyckich.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very interesting aroma, mixture of coffee cocoa AND smoked sausage (which some people really hate). Very dark with some reddish hints, solid and lasting dark beige head. Light/medium sweet, medium bitter with bitter aftertaste. Hints of smokes sausage also noticeable in taste. Full bodied, bit oily, over-average carbonation, nice bitter-dry finish.
I like baItic porters, and I must admit I gave this one slightly bigger notes, after Ive noticed, what notes people give to "Baltika" 6. I find this one MUCH more interesting.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
24th Jan 2015: shared bottle at the Cotteridge Wine meet. Poured with a
slight haze to the deep ruby body, the head a tanned foam. The nose was a sweet Sunday Lunch sort of smell, meat and two veg! Taste strange too, some sweetness and coffee notes to add with the Lunch aroma to give this beer a funny feel. Most likely the weirdest Baltic Porter I have had so far.
