Sluskin (13) - Skokie, Alabama, USA - FEB 3, 2013
A quality bargain porter with true history and none of the over priced nonsense of a craft beer brewed in Indiana. Pours a dark coffee almost black color a one finger head with no lacing. Has a sweet chocolate and raisin taste. Good carbonation.

Dark brown with tan head. Aroma has coffee, roasted malts, and dark malts. The first taste is medium sweet and gets a bit sweeter in the end with some bitterness. Medium to full body with creamy mouthfeel. Average carbonation and long roasty finish.

labeerinthum (661) - Milano, ITALY - NOV 28, 2016
Bottle courtesy of Alla. Il gusto al naso ritrova caramello, cioccolato, caff, vaniglia, liquirizia e sentore floreale. Lintensit olfattiva elevata e la persistenza olfattiva apprezzabile. Il cappello di schiuma dalle bollicine fini e carbonazione media ha una buona tenuta ed persistente. Il colore scuro impenetrabile. Il corpo strutturato ma duttile. Il dolce medio in buon equilibrio con lamaro medio. Lintensit gustativa elevata e la persistenza gustativa buona. Il gusto piacevole. Le sensazioni boccali finali sono lunghe. Il finale lungo e complesso. Il retrogusto intenso. Laroma in bocca riporta percezioni di caramello, miele, cioccolato, caff, liquirizia, frutta secca, fiori, torbato e vaniglia.

BeardedAvenger (434) - Addlestone, Surrey, ENGLAND - SEP 30, 2016
Bottle at home. Cheekily asked a colleague to get me some Latvian beer when they were on a hen weekend and they did. Bitter, anteseptic aroma. Very dark, a slight hint of red. Beige head soon fades away. Heavy bodied, smooth start with a sharp bitter peak, which initially becomes sour in the finish. Some sweetness flitting around. Can feel the alcohol at the top of my throat. However the sweetness then becomes more apparent given more time. A decent beer but not keen on the finish - Ill go with anteseptic again.

Bottle 0.5 l, EPI, Wrocław, Poland.
Ciemnobrązowe piwo z beżową, obfitą, puszystą, gęstą, sztywną i trwałą pianą oraz lekko owocowym i wyraziście palonym aromatem. W smaku gęste, początkowo lekko słodkawe i owocowe, następnie mocno palone z wytrawnym, kawowym finiszem.
