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.

Decent for style--it’s a less cloying, if thinner, BP. Nice alcohol burn complements the caramel malt. Would say "great for Saku", but in fact it’s a Latvian beer in terms of production, so Estonia shouldn’t really claim this one

Almost black, slight reddish colour. Thick tan head. Sugary, acidic aroma with hints of resin, chocolate, coffee and dark fruits. Flavour is soy sauce, tar and tobacco. Long malty aftertaste. Some notes of liquorice is present in finish.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle 0,50L. Dark brown mahagony colour with small, light brown creamy head that sits down quickly, but doesn’t dissapear. Light malty aroma of caramel, chocolate and roasted malt. Light sweet, cacao taste with moderate bitter aftertaste with mild mouthfeel. Medium to full body, oily texture and light carbonation. Nicely balanced and lighter than Saku Puhade Porter. Very mild and drinkable.

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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
0.5 bottle. Enormous, brownish head topping a pitch-black liquid and leaving some thin lacing. Strong malty aroma; caramel, berries, metal and hints of molasses. Bittersweet taste, mostly malty with a lot of berries, light chocolate, hints of liquorice and a tad of alcohol. Full body, slick/thick texture and soft carbonation. Finish is relatively short, medium-long at most, follows the taste but there is more molasses in it. Overall the beer is really good and surprisingly drinkable for a porter, could have a bit stronger character especially in regards to the finish which seems rather watery for a porter.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle@ Rimi. BB 10.12.15. Pours dark brown with fluffy tan head, does not stay long. Aroma is sweet with some bitterness,roasted malts, coffee, dark chocolate. Taste is medium burnt bitter, malty, bit watery, hits of coffee. Medium to full body. Was that beer better before. Good beer but i think this batch is not so good what it used to be.

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.
