3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at home. Has a black colour with a light brown, big head. A bit careful aroma of roasted malt, coffee and some dark chocolate. The flavour is similar but feels more roasted. Has a slick and soft mouth feel, and a light bitterness. A light, balanced and easy-drinking baltic porter.

Pours a deep black color, topped with a decent tan colored head, retention is also fine.
There is a very pleasant chocolate aroma mixed with some raosted aroma as well.
The taste is slightly sweet and creamy, chocolate is dominant, followed by roasted feel and coffee. The finish is mildly bitter.
All in all a very enjoyable beer.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
@ John’s Grocery / Iowa City IA --- Clear dark ruby brown, tan head that is slow to recede to a cover, no lace. Taste is sweet caramel malt that becomes much bigger in the palate, then adds coffee with sugar in a mildly carbonated finish. A solid, classic sweet European Porter, worth a look.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Täysin tumma ja musta väri, viipyvä vaahto, tuoksusta ei jääkylmänä juuri saa mitään irti, maku lupailee tumman leivän tyyppistä aromia, pikkaisen lämmenneenä maku muistuttaa makeata leipää. Ulkonäyön puolesta ei moitittavaa, maku kyllä valitettavasti jää puolitiehen.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
500 ml bottle into a snifter, ABV 6.9%
Dark mahogany brown on the body, small beige head, a but thin, with good retention nevertheless. Foam islands left on the surface after it collapses along with light lacing around the glass.
Aroma has fruits, milky chocolate , light roasted malts.
Taste is refreshingly fruity with milky chocolate, a touch ofroasted malts on the finish, quite sweet in general.
Medium body with right amount of carbonation and a nice dryness on the palate.
This is surely a highly drinkable beer and it doesn’t show it’s alcohol at all, easy to get carried away with this one.

Yeah, here it goes. I have had this one more than 20 bottles this winter. This is the best Estonian Porter this season. Creamy, dark roasted, loads of caramel and still well balanced and drinkable. A huge surprise from mass brewery.
