3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle courtesy of Ramy at Clockworks 10K tasting, April 19th 2015. Pours a deep black body with no head, light brown bubbles. Mouthfeel is medium with notes of rich earthy wood, sweet chocolate candy, earthy dirt, sweet deep roast, branches, and almost a sweet lactose character. This was really good and an awesome representation of what I envision a Baltic Porter should be.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Copenhagen 31/1 2015. 33 cl bottle from Rema 1000. Pours black with big dark beige head. Slowly subsiding. Aroma is sweetish - chocolate, nuts and a little coffee. Medium carbonation. Taste is bittersweet. Actually rather more bitter than sweet. The pronounced taste hides the high alcohol content quite well. Ok - but a bit one-dimensional.

En dejlig fyldig øl, som smager lidt sødere og bedre end mange andre portere.
