3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
500mL Can. My first Baltic Porter from a can! Dry, lightly spiced warm woodsy aroma. The carbonation on this beer is way too high, it’s really screwing with the body of the porter. The overcarbonation blows the spice and licorice (strong) all over the place. A hint of molasses and lots of dark malt round out the complexity. If they could tame the carbonation, this would be better, but it still wouldn’t deal with the fact that this is mostly a spice porter and that there’s not much Baltic about it.

Draft at Taps Beer Bar, Kuala Lumpur. Poured almost black with a frothy light tan head. The aroma is sweet roasty malt, light molasses. The flavour is moderate sweet with a rich, almost creamy, smoky malt, light liquorice palate. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Plenty going on and very refreshing even in the Asian heat.
