DrnkMcDermott (3058) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - NOV 10, 2005
Bottle. Nice chewy smell of raisins and molasses right out of the bottle. Pours a deep brown under a thick brown head, wafting the smell of brown sugar and cola through the room Taste is a little fruity, with a bit of dark roast malt astringency following. Touch of chocolate, molasses or rum. Despite its low price and doubtless roundabout way of getting to my glass, it is indeed a nice, robust, well-made porter.

labeerinthum (770) - 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 (599) - 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.
