3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, 50cl. Deep black and hazy color porter, with a brown, stable, foamy and creamy head. Roasted, burned malty sweet notes, caramel and deep, concentrated chocolate and liquorice. Clear alcohol. Flavor is dense at first, sweet full bodied, syrup, roasted caramel and malts, dark fruits, coffee, quite boozy all-over. Complex and rich, but unbalanced. At least for my taste.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Not a very refined Porter, but it packs a bunch that’s for sure. The alcohol content pretty much buries all distinct features, if there are any. A shame really, ’cause it seems like it could be interesting. I recommend drinking this from a big open glass, maybe even red wine glassware, and let it sit for a while befor drinking. Serve at 12-14 degrees celcius. What can I say, it looks and smells like a baltic, but to get the nuances one really have to be careful and choose the right glas and temperature. A meal in itself.

Bottle. Nice boozy aroma, with a bit of syrup to it. Sweet and very full bodied but a little too much for my taste.

Heftig lakrids, både i duft og smag. Lav, behagelig carb. Flot skum, som forsvinder hurtigt.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: NOV 23, 2013 Bottle from Sjøbeck Øl & Vand, thanks for that, Hanne! A bottle of Baltic Porter is like a box of chocolates in Mississippi. This one granted us a dark brown, almost black beer, with an interesting light brown head. The aromas were a bit leathery, oily, with olives, but plenty of red fruits, a little tart. And so were the flavours. Great fruity tartness, with cranberries coming before the chocolates and liquorice. There’s an interesting bitterness that lingers on, side by side with the booziness, much after the tongue has forgotten the other flavours. The body is medium to full, with detectable carbonation, but nothing that spoils the experience. It’s quite busy, and I’d associate this beer more with many Foreign Stouts than to a Baltic Porter. And it’s a good beer!

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Das Aroma besteht aus purer Schokolade, im Antrunk wird diese eher zur Milchschokolade. Der Alkohol versteckt sich gut und harmoniert perfekt mit der Restsüße.
Perfekt für ruhige Abende vor dem Herdfeuer.

June 2011. From bottle. Pours black with a tan head. Dark roasted malt aromas with licorice, caramel and chocolate. Sweet at first, but with a bitter finish. Pretty good.
