Tried it yesterday, so not remeber more details, but rich nice light brown cap and full taste. I’m not big porter/stout lover, but this was among those porters wich I drink with pleasure.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Almost black cola-colored dark brown beer with little blonde tanned head. Aroma has chocolate, roasted malts and coffee. Flavor is chocolaty and sugary sweet and salty licoricy. Has a pretty nice amount of bitterness. Little fuller than medium full and creamy soft palate with a good amount of carbonation. Tasty and enjoyable baltic porter, nice opening for a new brewery.

30cl on tap at Pudel, Tallinn. Clear mahogany with a small off-white head. Roasty aroma with dark fruits, dark malt, chocolate, hints of licorice and spices.
Medium sweet with decent bitterness. Flavourful and warming but easy to drink. Nice one!

mokkainen vaahto joka pysyy pitkää. herkullisen näköistä. tuoksussa lakritsia ja jotain salmiakintapaista. tuoksu on hyvä mutta saisi olla voimakkaampi. ehkä lämmetessä voimistuisi, nyt tuli kiireessä juotua liian nopeasti. suutuntuma prosentteihin nähden kevyt.maussa samat komponentit kuin tuoksussa. ilahduttavasti makeus pysyy kurissa vaikka huulet tarttuvat lasinreunoihin. periaatteessa ainekset loistavaan olueen olisivat kasassa jos tuoksu ja maku saisi lisää voimaa.

Bottle. So glad they brewed it again. Having missed out on the first batch of this I was beginning to wonder if it was just a one time thing. Dark brown with a minimal head. Aroma has cocoa and licorice with lighter notes of coffee. Smooth palate with low carbonation. Rich body with smooth tastes of licorice and coffee. Finish has a bit of stout roastiness but it is carefully balanced. Good one, I hope they are finding ways to brew it more often.
