3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Not familiar with other baltic porters, but this one has low colour and roastiness for a porter. Lots of caramel and molasses, slightly metallic. No hop aroma, but good balancing bitterness.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Weak aroma, weak head, pretty boring for a porter. No character. There are much better ones on the market. Forgettable beer.

Bottled. Pours clear copper in color with a small tan head. Light roasted notes, more on the sweet malty side in aroma here. Dark fruity sweetness and light dark syrup sweetness in taste. Feels a bit light and hasn’t thus got enough of flavor.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This has a light feel to it, slight root beer sweetish feel. Whats good is it’s drinkability, to quench one’s thirst. Body is not overly complex.

Clear dark red - amber beer. Big pale tan head. Pale malt nose, papery. Palate is light and crisp. Papery caramel malt, trace of smoke. Minerally freshness. Whisper of bubblegum ester. Dry finish. Hop free! Not terrible but too much paper.
