500ml bottle. Pours a nice dark brown with a thick tan head that lingers. Light aroma of roasted malt sweetness. Taste has a nice roasted malt caramel and toffee flavor with a subtle coffee background that shows more as it warms. Mouthfeel has good carbonation with a medium body.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Milk chocolate nose, a certain bitterness to it, but pleasant. Brown with orange red highlights, frothy head that turns smooth. Palate is smooth, with cocoa, oily feel, minimum of booze. Not as full as most baltics but I liked it.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Am almost black beer that has a nice tan head. Good retention. A nice nose that is dark chocolate and is grainy. It has a nice feel. I also taste tobacco juice and soy. It goes from soggy to sour, odd though that be. This cannot be considered a great porter.

The temperature of beer was maybe a bit too high when I started drinking, quite good baltic porter anyway.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma wasnt very pleasant, it was little bit coffee and chocklate mixed. Taste was actually pretty good (in the right place) Cold winter night, oh very pleasant! Overall id like to said that it was pretty good beer, little bit sweet first taste, and bitterness after.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Nästan svart öl med smutsvitt skum. En söt doft av alkohol och jäst frukt. Alkoholsötma. Saknar de kraftiga smaker som jag associerar med en Baltic Porter.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
50 cl, bottled. Alc vol. 6.9 %. Pours clear dark red with a nice tan head. Aroma: Roasted sugar and coffee, malt, matured fruits. Taste: Sweetish, some pleasant salty compound. Nice mild supportive bitterness. Palate: Soft, quite light, yet not too watery. Noticeable soft carbonation. Pretty good but little too sweet/much caramel for my taste preference.
