A very fine porter, full-bodied, great mouthfeel, and a powerful alcoholic kick, all in all a great drink. Much better than most US and UK porters and stouts with their watery aftertaste and lack of real strength, this porter has it all and it comes in a nice bottle with a simple, effective label. Highly recommended!

Tasted at La table du bon roi Stanislas (Nancy, France), with quail sirloins wraped in smoked ham and then with chestnut marzipan cake and coffee sauce - both very enjoyable match. Black colour, dark beige foam like wich leaves nice laces. Smell and taste of toast, dried fruit, coffee, candi sugar.

BB: 21.08.2016, so the fresh one. Aroma is roasted malt, some chocolate. Dark brown colour with tall brown-ish head. Taste is slightly metallic at the beginning, but after a while does not bother. Roasted malts, caramel and dark chololate at the finish with alcoholic warming.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Large bottle from Roots Market Olney. Opaque stout/porter black/brown with tall brown head. Roasted malt aroma with hint of plums. Taste is roast malt with hints of light coffee and a booziness that mimics a whiskey barrel. Though this is not imperial it feels pretty close to being double digit ABV. Nice roast malt finish, I enjoyed this Baltic porter.

Palate: full body, average to soft carbonation, bitter finish, alcohol warming. Taste: sweet molasses and caramel with nuttiness coming through, going into light fruitiness, with assertive bitterness coming through with decent alcoholic warming. Overall, very nice, very true to style, very good.
