Serving: Bottle from State Line Liquors. It pours a dark brown with a small head. The nose has light caramel and nut notes. Thin and flabby on the tongue. There is a little bread, light caramel, and a light nuttiness with an odd, almost metallic bitterness. A bit weak for the style, but drinkable.

Utenos Porter has a thick, spongy, beige head, a clear, somewhat bubbly, orange-brown appearance, and some lacing left behind on the glass. The aroma is of sweet, brown bread, bread crust, bubble gum, and banana pudding. The flavor is of the same, with a background slightly elevated hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium and slimy, and Utenos Porter finishes wet, spread out, and fairly drinkable. Overall, this is a good, yet unusual porter. RJT

Very dark red brew with a thin tan head. Aroma is bread-like with a raisony hint. Taste is sweet and cola-like. Medium body, moderate carbs. Fairly bland Baltic Porter. Good, but by no means remarkable.

Had my eye on it for a while. I can’t remember when was the last time I had it. Nor do I remember what it tasted last time, so this is like clean slate new beginning. Pours Dark Brown, Medium Foamy Head that dissipates rather quickly leaving decent lacing. Slightly roasted, caramel, sweet malt, with slight alcohol zing. Slightly thinner than expected or remembered. Overall, quite good, no disappointments.

Hasselnötsbrun öl med lätt smutsvitt skum. Doft av mörkt bröd, bränt socker, fikon och mycket sötma. Även smaken är mycket söt. Saknar något som balanserar upp sötman.

Poured from a pint sized bottle into a trumpet glass to drink. The beer had a rusty, copper brown color and was a touch hazy with a modest, foamy, off-white head with average retention, lacing, and cling. Its aroma had a mix of caramel malt along with raisin and a light earthy tone, with touches of pine and yeast. The taste had a malty and deeply sweet fruity character with raisin, and a light earthy tone with touches of pine and caramel, and a somewhat sour finish. The beer was wet, watery, and a bit creamy, with low carbonation, and a heavy and thick mouthfeel.
