thirstyrabbit (1065) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 6, 2014
Bottle. Dark brown body, medium to small creamy head. Aroma has a mix of all kind of exotic hops but no roast. This is not what I want in a porter. Thick sticky mouthfeel. Taste follows the aroma: very hoppy, malty and viscous like a DIPA. Oily finish with plenty of exotic hops. Well, it’s not a bad beer but right now I really wanted a porter not some hop wankery.

suurjuust (959) - ESTONIA - JUL 5, 2014
Dark brown beer, tan head. Nose is hops, dried fruit, slight warm alcohol note, Flavor is roasty, burned notes, smoke, hops, dark chocolate, hints of vanilla. Hops and roast in the finish. The sticky roasty-hoppy bitterness coats the mouth. Lingering roast and booze.Not overly sweet. Pretty well balanced.

znawca (47) - POLAND - JUL 4, 2014
bottle AROMA: hops in the first place (citrus, flowers, herbs) however somehow repressed, later comes a bit of chocolate, coffee and roastiness; APPEARANCE: clear black/dark brown, ruby under intensive light, spectacular beige head, no lacing; TASTE: notes characteristic for Baltic porter hidden under hoppy notes which connotes rather black IPA, unquestionably high sweetness firmly countered by considerable bitterness (very high for Baltic porter); PALATE: body seems medium, low carbonation, warming from alcohol, finish is quite long, bitter, not astringent; OVERALL: interesting attempt, but this Baltic porter enriched with aroma introduced by Amarillo etc. doesn’t speak to me. EXPIRATION DATE: 2014-11-20

UPDATED: JUL 8, 2014 330ml bottle (BeerGallery Kazimer, Krakow)
Smells roasty, dark, some marmite too. Taste also a deep deep deep roast, but not as astringent as you might fear from such potency. Palate smooth and full. That burnt roast gets everywhere, covers every surface of your mouth. A touch sticky, but only to the level you’d expect from a beer of this strength. A little bit over-the-top, but not too much.

0,33ml bootle. Piwo bardzo ciemne brązowe, z ładną utrzymującą się pianą, która ładnie zdobi szkło. Aromaty słodu, karmelu, paloność, owoce cytrusowe/żywica i gorzka czekolada. Słodki smak słodu karmelowego, czekolada, lekka paloność i owoce cytrusowe. Pełne ciało, długi słodki posmak z długą przyjemną i intensywną gorczyką.

martjoobolut (542) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 19, 2014
0,33L bottle, BB 20.11.2014. Pours very dark brown almost black with light brown head. The head stays. Aroma is roast, sour notes, coffee, and hints of smoke. Taste is sweet and bitter, coffee, roast, and dark chocolate. Finish is dark chocolate and roast bitter with some lingering sweetness. Feels creamy, alcohol is slightly noticeable. Overall: great brew.

kamwitsta (107) - POLAND - JUN 18, 2014
UPDATED: JUN 30, 2014 The aroma is both hoppy and malty: tropical fruits and roasting, coffee, caramel, a little chocolate. Pours very dark ruby with a big, beige head that stays there almost till the end. Bitter and sweet in taste, with just a tiny little bit of sourness to make the whole much more drinkable. Full body, soft carbonation, bitter-sweet finish. Much as I?m not in fact a fan of porters, this one is really nice, a celebration beer one could actually session if one so wished.
