4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Appearance: opaque deep brown /black with only the faintest hints of lighter brown around the margins, short, short-lived beige head diminishing rapidly to a thin ring, no lacing. (4/5) Aroma: dark chocolate, toffee, dark roasty grains, boozy cherries, hint of smoke and leather. (9/10) Taste: moderate-strong sweet, moderate bitter. (9/10) Palate: full oily body, soft carbonation, medium duration slightly boozy finish. (4/5)
I usually find baltic porters a bit too sweet for my preference, but this one has the body and presence to pull it off. Alcohol doesn’t significantly affect the flavour, but is definitely present in the finish and a pleasant warming. Definite slow sipper for savouring. (17/20)

355ml bottle pours black in color with a finger and a half of light brown head that leaves some spotty lacing behind. Aroma is chocolate and roasted grains with some alcohol. Taste is a roasted grain and citrus hop bitterness followed by a chocolate malty sweetness. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation leaving a pleasant sensation on the palate.

Bottle to tulip
Lots of caramel, licorice, soy, and molasses. Black with a tin tan ring. Dark chocolate, toasted malt, molasses and a hint of coffee and cherry. Very smooth for its alcohol content.

1100 rate! this beer has been on my WL forever! much thanks to springlicker (I think) for the bottle via trade. Favorite style and this is why.. aroma is roasted goodness; roasted cocoa, molasses? darrrk pour with brown lacing. Taste is smooth - toasted/roasted flavor with slight sweetness from molasses or dark fruit - some light alcohol burn at end (but no affect on taste). 2nd best Baltic! thx.
