3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap @ Copenhagen Beer Celebration. Tar black body, small white head. Nose is faint licorce and coffee notes, with hints of leather. Taste is leathery licorice, ashes, tar, hints of soy sauce and milk chocolate. Smooth and velvety body, mild carbonation. A fairly complex, yet straightforward and very drinkable Baltic porter indeed. I liked it a lot.

Tap @ CBC, 2012.
Pours all black with a small, staying, creamy, beige head. Aroma is roasted, dark chocolate, liqourice, softly metallic. Medium carbonation, lovely light and still creamy mouthfeel with some dryness. Flavour is elegant, dry, light ashy, roasted, some coffee. Only subdued viniousness. Very clean with only a tad of blackberries. Very good.
