huge thanks to the man Mr. Dave. A lithuanian beer form a lithunian. Tastes like a dark rich plis, caramel malts and sweetness shine with the slightest noble hop character. Not too bad you rascals.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
.5L bottle served in a snifter at a temperature of about 50-55F.
Appearance: Pours a clear garnet-brown color; a bit lighter than average although the tan head is not. Leaves some sticky lacing.
Smell: Figs and other dark fruits with dark bread and a hint of brandy: nicely appealing.
Taste: Sweet all the way thru, bordering on cloying. Good mix of figs and dates in the fruity flavor but a bit lacking in roasted malts.
Mouthfeel: Light-medium body and light but adequate carbonation.
O: The sweet flavor has some appeal but would be improved with a bit more dark malt in the mix, as well as a touch more bittering hops.

500 ml bottle from Barley and Hops. A basic to style Baltic. Pours a deep red/brown color with a medium white head. A big nose of licorice and sweets. The flavor has a similar base of licorice, cocoa, chocolate, some metal, roast and caramel. Smooth. Good.

This stuff was extremely disapointing. I was excited to try a new porter and I ended up drinking a Kahlua flavored Heineken. No roasty taste or malty flavor. Just sour tasting, just awful. I can’t believe anyone would consider this a porter.

Svart i färgen med beige skum. Doftar rostad malt rågbröd, choklad. Smakar rostad malt, choklad, lite tunn i kroppen och alkoholsmaken tränger igenom. Kunde göras lite bättre.

Pours medium brown with only a slight off white head. Aroma is sharp burnt biscuit. Flavor is korea subdued more carmel than toasty not what americans would describe as a porter. Intersting though.

Bottle from Rasputin’s, Ipswich. Distinct treacle aroma on opening, pours a very deep ruby brown with a good head. Caramelised, quite thick and rich. Some carbonation, though head soon disappeared. Quite strong at 6.8% which comes through as you drink.

Decembet 31, 2012 - bottle from Famous. Brown pour with nice head and lacing. Aroma was roasted malt and strong caramel. Taste was caramel sweet, little bit roasty, grainy, watery and a dry alcohol finish. Not what I was expecting with a porter.
