3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
355 ml bottle from my European Local Swap sender VastActiv. Thanks Janne!
Black body, with a big, dense, creamy, dark beige head.
Aroma of dark chocolate, liquorice, nuts, dried and dark fruits.
Satisfying, smooth taste of chocolate, cocoa powder, coffee, liquorice, slight ash, dark fruits.
Medium, creamy mouthfeel, with a soft carbonation.
Finishes roasty, a bit dry, a bit sweet, with dark chocolate, dry cocoa, some liquorice.
Tasty. Smooth and strong at the same time, with a great balance. Enjoyable dark chocolate and cocoa notes. I didn’t have many Baltic Porters before, but this is my favourite so far.

bottle kindly shared by Saeglopur, many thanks Thomas. black color, small dark coffee-colored head. smells caramel, coffee roast, lightly smoked, bitter chocolate. quite nice smell. full body, light carbonation, slick oily mouthfeel. taste of malty roastiness, coffee, light ash, some dried fruits, some chocolate. light roasty bitter / ashy finish. quite nice, looses a bit on the taste, taste and mouthfeel are a bit light, especially considering the ABV. overall nice though.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
9.11.2013. Hennon paahteinen, siirappinen tuoksu. Myös lakritsia/salmiakkia. Maussa paahteisuutta tulee lisää, mutta suutuntuma on kuitenkin siirappiseen makeuteen päin. Jostain jälkimausta ehkä huomaa paahteisuuden lisäksi mainostettua vaahterasiirappia. Kuiva jälkimaku.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle thanks to Santa! Pours opaque black with a medium brown head that dissipates fairly quickly leaving nice residual and decent lacing. Aroma is strong chocolate, roasty, some coffee, a bit of molasses and anise. Flavor follows, rich and creamy, medium sweet and light bitter, lots of chocolate, anise and molasses, hints of smoke. Fullish body, nice soft mouthfeel. Excellent.
