4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: APR 30, 2013 Dark opaque brown almost black with an orange tint and a frothy, brown, disappearing, non-lacy head. Deep smell of roasted malt and smoke, chocolate with butter and sweet dark caramel and toffee. Dark fruits – cherry, plum, prune. Full oily body. Sweet initial taste of caramel and milk chocolate, lots of roast ash and dark chocolate in the middle with a liquorish, fruity finish. From sweet to burnt bitter to sweet again in one sip. It would be amazing with a chocolate mousse. An excellent porter. Deep and delicious.

Hmmm, excellent Baltic Porter, forgot how much I enjoy this style. I don’t see it in Holland much. Slightly smokey and earthy but with enough red fruit and coffee to make this an excellent brew. Bottle from Burg Bieren in Ermelo.
