4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
I am a sucker for this kinda beer. Here goes: Pours a clear dark reddish brown. Aroma consists of dark fruits, malt. Mouth feel is velvety, dry, yet full bodied. Flavor is extreme dark fruits, raisins, plums, dates dipped in dark chocolate-- roasted nuts, malt. This beer seems to have thrown most people on this site for a loop because they don’t seem to be able to separate a Baltic porter from a regular porter.

Bottle. 0,5L Price: ~0,66 €. Labai "sunkus". Galėtu pilstyti į mažesnius butelius.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Fawn head, clear ruby body, dots and crochets as lacing.
A barrel of dried fruits to the nose, a very inviting bouquet.
Taste; powerful caramel malts, confectionery with lots of dark and dried fruits, some fermented fruits, small notes of syrupy bread. Ok body and normal on palate. Nice fruity finish. Overall a nice baltic porter, inclining to sweet.
I was a hobo in Marijampole Lithuania for one night to get this one, for sharing with a porter-loving specialist north of the arctic circle.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500ml bottle. Pours a firm fawn-coloured head resting over a ruby-brown coloured body. Crocheted lacing. Sweet taste of dark and dried fruits. The taste character is also very sweet containing prunes, raisin, caramel, and apricot. Just a little bite of roastiness to the finish. Fine bodied. Nice, but far too sweet in the long run (kindly shared by djoeye, Tromsø 11.11.2014).

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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Medium brown, clear, thin tan head. Aroma of pilsner malt with light notes toasted malt and chocolate. Flavor: pilsner malt base, some toasty Munich notes, a little toffee, cola, light chocolate. Light overall and light on the dark malts for a porter, and this bottle may be old because its showing oxidation.
