2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
From a half liter bottle this stuff has a rather alarming volatile malt aroma. Big puffy tan head. First taste is not over the top but fer sure you know there’s alky in there. Yes, boozy is the word for the feel of this drink. Does not hide the alky well. Not sure what to think of this. I like porter but this must be a kind of Baltic porter if you ask me. Wew, almost has a gag reflex here baby. Some co2 keeps this from being flat. Not impressed.
