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

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Muddy brown with light brown head that fades quickly. Aroma is cocoa and hard lake water, grassy. Body is light, coarse, prickly carbonation, slightly syrupy. Mild aftertaste. pleasant but too much blah yeast/lake water aroma.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
I was expecting a baltic porter. Definitely not a baltic porter. Little head, and an alcohol nose. Very light, more like a bavarian dark lager,... a poor one,... with a strong taste of alcohol,... and not much behind it. BOOOOHISSSS!

3.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: OCT 5, 2013 That is another classic...Somehow I feared this could be as disappointing as the Baltika 6. Nice dark brown, with an incredibly thick creamy head. The nose is very sweet. Malzbier or Karamalz, cloying. But the flavours are much more agreeable, with salty licorice, Vegemite, some yogurt sourness and a nice bitterness that drives it all away from the cloying suggestion on the nose. This Saku porter is actually so well balanced that, with its rather thin body, it is refreshing even on a hot summer day.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
A strange smell of grape from this one, but good -- not so for a beer, but good. Tastes like dry grapey porter with hops mixed in. Worth a try, but nothing more.

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled. Dark brown colour. Small, very quickly diminishing head. Caramelly, strongly coffeish aroma. Toasted malts and heavy coffee flavour. Lasting medicine-bitter finish. Mediumbodied. Interesting beer, but the medicine bitterness somehow spoiled it for me.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Not bad, but definitely too pale for a porter. I would categorize this as a brown ale. The taste was very mild for a porter. Pretty good beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Brown, clear, with a light tan head that doesn't last long. Nose is slightly metallic, sweet and chocolatey. Flavor is surprisingly good, medium-sweet with notes of chocolate. Mouthfeel tends toward the fizzy/bitey end of the spectrum.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Clear, almost opaque dark brown porter has a licorice and syrupy malty aroma. Taste is sweet malts with chocolate and salty licorice. Full bodied porter with quite strong taste.
