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.

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.

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 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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

Cola black beer with a big mocha head. Aroma of ripe sweet dark fruits. Flavors of dark ripe fruits and red berries. Lovely sweetness typical to a baltic porter. Liquorice and mämmi. Medium body. I love sweet baltic porters and this is a good one.
