50cl bottle from "Lifesource" Salem.
Pours a dark brown with a nice sized tan head.
Dark chocolate,treacle and dark fruitiness abound in the nose.
Smooth treacle,molasses taste, some hints of elderberry and blackcurrant,slightly salty,finishes with alcohol.
Ok palate good but average for style
This is OK a good beer but sadly for me not a good Baltic.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
0.5L bottle. Soiled clothes first and then little coffe grounds aroma. Cool used motor oil color with brown hat. Very cool look. Taste is also fat oili. Correct porter feeling and taste. Remind little summer clove and herbs. Little vanilla and little coffee caramel. Everything is on balance. Finish is bit alcohol, but not disturb very much. Best baltic porter so far.

UPDATED: JAN 29, 2014 Reddish brown beer with smallish head. Roasted and smoky malts, little bit of grassy hop aromas. Mildly smoky, roasted malts and grassy hops in the end. Pretty thin for a porter, high carbonation.

Bottle from Urban Wine Cellars, Baltimore. Dark brown with a slight, off-white head. Sweet, dark fruits, rum and molasses aroma. Sweet caramel flavours, with more rum notes continuing to the finish. Not for me.

50cl bottle shared with Dutchdrebus. Very dark brown to black color with a nice deep dark red glare coming through. Full sized beige to light brown head that lasts for a decent while. Smell malts, dark malts, leaves and slightly sweet. Low to medium carbonation and body. Bit disappointing imo.

Bottle thx to benzai. Dark amber colour with a big, creamy off-white to light brown head. Smells slightly roasty, slightly earthy, slight dark chocolate. Tastes quite sweet, salty liquorice, earthy. Don’t really like the liquorice part. Medium body, soft carbo.
