4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pitch black color. Hazelnut dark fruit, chocolate and vanilla in the nose.
Very rich, lots if dark fruit, plums, port, vanilla beans, chocolate and a splash of brandy in the mouth. Very nice and rounded. Very warming finish that feels like taking down fudge soaked in vanilla. Fantastic beer, not sure if so authentic to style but totally awesome. Never had a Baltic porter like this.
