Moggman (235) - Columbus, USA - NOV 24, 2010

Kauge (252) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 22, 2014
Bottle as a gift from Espoo. BB 07.08.2015. Pours a thick red-hued black with a tan head. Retains, laces. Nose is initially kind of sour, reminds me of "raw" bread and even sauerkraut, with roasty aspects way back there somewhere. Taste on the other hand is hop-driven at first, then roasted malts rise forward. Letting it warm for some time... Now, after some 20 minutes, the head’s dropped to a film, thicker around the edge, lacing still good. Aroma is very nice roasty ashy dry chocolaty cocoa bitter, coffee, figs and plums, seaweed and marmalade. Taste is roasted malts, dark fruits, nicely balanced sweet and bitter, black bread, molasses. Full body, thick syrupy palate backed up by the rather lively carbonation, texture smooth and only somewhat grainy. Expected it to be better but still good.

Deep dark brown colour, moderate sized quickly collapsing brown head; complex aroma of coffee, dried fruits, liqueur, some vanilla and spicy alcohol; taste of coffee, chocolate, herbal liqueur notes and some alcohol - excellent baltic porter

Erzengel (3439) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - NOV 10, 2014
Many thanks to rosenbergh. The beer starts intense malty-loqourice. Thick and smooth. Bitter-smooth, easy to drink and heavy malty. The aftertaste is smooth-malty, bitter with a nice sweetish-heavy malty body. On the tongue remains a sweetisg-malty, bitter aroma. Thick and intense, not too sweet. Great!

superspak (2778) - Michigan, USA - OCT 31, 2014
330 ml bottle into snifter, best before 11/4/2013. Pours pitch black color with a 1-2 finger dense brown head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big chocolate, cocoa, coffee, toast, dark bread, molasses, raisin, prune, fig, licorice, light smoke/char, and roasted earthiness. Incredible aromas with great balance and complexity of dark/roasted malt and dark fruit notes; with good strength. Taste of chocolate, cocoa, coffee, toast, dark bread, molasses, raisin, prune, fig, licorice, light smoke/char, and roasted earthiness. Fair amount of roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of chocolate, cocoa, coffee, toast, dark bread, molasses, raisin, prune, fig, licorice, light smoke/char, and roasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Incredible complexity, balance, and robustness of dark/roasted malt and dark fruit flavors; with a nice roasted bitterness/sweetness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light-medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a very smooth, creamy, and lightly slick/chalky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an incredible Baltic porter. All around awesome complexity and balance of dark/roasted malt and dark fruit flavors; and very smooth to drink. A highly enjoyable offering.
