Great! Incredibly thick and rich for a relatively low alcohol porter. Pours brown with big thick head, nice coffee-like aroma. Rich taste, with caramel, roasted coffee and slight fruity notes. Leaves a pleasant aftertaste, splendid porter! Stats show that it’s the beest beer in the region - Aldaris Porteris deserves so. radiomgb (2686) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 22, 2006
Bottle from <a
href=http://www.ratebeer.com/Place/new-york target=blank>Beers Of The World in Rochester. Near black in colour, thin beige quickly dissipating head, no lace. The aroma was quite sweet, some licorice, dark fruits, noticable alcohol and dark malts. The flavour was a bit of a letdown, bready malts, some alcohol, dark chocolate, light roast. Lightly bitter mouthfeel, thin body, medium carbonation. Finishes lingering and bitter. Might be a bit old. temporrari (397) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - JUL 14, 2006
Bought this on a whim, had no idea what it was. $1.99. Pours a dark amber, huge tan head. Aroma is definately fruity, some yeast in there, with caramel malts. The bottle describes the beer about right. It’s got a somewhat sweet caramel flavor, pretty fruity. Not too bad. Could use some chocolate in there.

Pours a barely transparent dark mahogany with ruby hues and a rich, dense, frothy, well-lacing tan head. Sweet, authentic dark caramel sugar malty aroma has a touch of aged malts, dark fruit and lager yeast. Body starts with lots of sticky sugars, some plum sweetness and a full, bready mouthfeel. Finishes as it started, with plenty of malty sweetness and a touch of mild alcohol. Could definitely use a little more balance or attenuation, but still a pretty nice Baltic porter. jlf278 (288) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUN 19, 2006
A nice balance of molasses, coffee, and chocolate notes blend into a fine brew. This dark porter is potent at 6.8% abv, but still drinks well. Don’t finish it too fast though, it is pleasantly savored alone or alongside spicy foods. The mouthfeel is thick and earthy, but not syrupy. Overall, very tasty, nice progression from sweet to bitter, but could be more complex and leave you with a nicer after taste.

Another nice Baltic, as they’ve all impressed me. Poured a dark brown mahoganey color with a nice thick tan head. Lacing was adequate. The aroma was malty, spicey, even somewhat of a fruity touch. The flavor was malty rich, rather sweet, and pretty smokey with chocolate / coffee underneath. Mouthfeel was thick and creamy with moderate carbonation. Very nice. spporras (259) - FINLAND - JUN 5, 2006
(Bottle BB 21/10/06) Roasted malty and caramel aroma. Black reddish colour and light brown, large, almost fully diminishing head with fair lacing. Sweet caramel, roasted malty, licorice, slightly bitter flavour. Medium-bodied, slightly carbonated, slightly alcoholic and slightly dry palate. Reasonable Baltic porter. 04/06/06 BeerandBlues2 (14018) - Escondido, California, USA - JUN 1, 2006
Pours opaque with a medium frothy tan head, mostly diminishing, some feeble lined lacing. Aroma is malt (meal, grain, toast), fruity floral hop notes, dark chocolate and caramel, yeast (leather). Creamy chocolate and caramel malty, slightly sweet, no bitterness, faint alcohol acidic burn. Dark bodied, creamy and smooth palate. tbookman (618) - Ephrata, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 1, 2006
Dark brown with a twinge of red. Aroma of dark coffee. Medium-thick body and sweet robust flavors of toffee, dark malts, caramel and a bit of brown sugar. Finish is a bit bitter but also somewhat sweet. rdawson321 (145) - USA - MAY 31, 2006
I wasn’t particularly impressed. Thin bodied and sweet. Interesting bitterness to it. Simply so-so.
