3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Appearance is black with light mocha head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is anise, dark fruit, and roasted malts. Taste is roasted malts, coffee, and bitter dark chocolate. Medium mouthfeel. Really enjoyed this, more like a RIS than a Baltic as it is more toasty and bitter, then sweet dark fruit, but itís really tasty!

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Looks like the calendar had some really good beers in it - but i smartly stayed away from that massive money pit. Solid aroma of chocolate, some sweetness and coffee, raisins, dust, hint of raspberries. Pretty tasty with a bit of burnt aftertaste and probably alcohol - faint but there. Maybe itís more than faint but itís tied in well with the bitterness. Deep roast and truckloads of malts, toffee, light medicinal stuff, charcoal, hints of citrus. I didnít find this particularly smooth nor did I enjoy the hard bite. It did leave my mouth heavily coated with beer load - probably the thing I enjoyed the most here is the lasting feeling like I ate an entire chapstick. Thick bodied. I really donít think I was in the mood for this but, really, that just points towards a general ímehí despite what is here. Just look a massive swig of the bottom of my glass and it was freaking excellent! wtf. oh well. Appreciate? Sure. Second purchase? Not a chance. Les Trois Mousquetaires Baltic Porter kills this.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma is raisin, caramel, toffee and slight vanilla. Toasted bread and oat aswell. Taste is a deep and rich maltiness with caramel , toffee and chocolate. Fine light tartiness on the tip that rounds the beer out nicely.smooth finish given how full bodied it is. Aroma is a deep black with a thin beige head that retains fairly poorly.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from the Craft Beer Advent Calendar
Black color, small head. Some liquorice and dark malts in the aroma. Good body strength; chocolate flavor, a bit too much medicine (phenol?), moderately sweet, with some leather, and some alcohol warmth; a bit of roasted nuts too.
Quite good, a bit weird.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle, pours black with a small beige head. Aroma brings out notes of roasted malt, some light cocoa and earthy notes. Flavour brings out a very earthy roasted malt that dominates the whole palate. Secondary notes exist in terms of light cocoa and coffee, but this is mostly earthy roasted malt. Complex and rich, with low residual sweetness. An extremely high quality baltic porter - one of the best.
