Pullo @ Alko. Kaatuu lasiin tummanruskeana/mustana, noin kolmen sormen paksuisella tummalla vaahdolla. Tuoksussa on hyvin vahvaa marjaisuutta, ruisleipää/saaristolaisleipää, lakritsia sekä ripaus paahteista maltaisuutta nivoen koko tuoksun yhteen. Maku on hyvin luumuinen, lakritsinen sekä lopussa leipäinen, jälkimaussa tulee myös ihan lievää savua mukaan. Makeahkoa marjaisuutta ja liköörimäisyyttä on myös joukossa. Suutuntuma on melko makea, sekä täyteläinen, lopussa katkerot tuovat lievää kuivuutta joukkoon. Marjaisen ja tumman hedelmän puolelle kääntyvä porter, jossa paahteisuus on aika minimissä. MIellyttävä kokonaisuus kuitenkin.

Color negro con capa de espuma marrón de dos dedos de grosor (buena retención). Carbonatación suave. Textura oleosa. Aroma a malta torrefacta suave, chocolate, ceniza, fruto seco. En boca entra casi dulce, con mucho chocolate, fruto seco, pasas, malta torrefacta y licor suave al final del trago. Postgusto a chocolate y pasas. Bien.

Black colour, frothy tan head. Malty aroma, raisins and a hint of chocolate. Light sweet taste, a little bit of roastiness in the end. Low medium body, medium carbonation, soft mouthfeel. It's ok but kind of watered down taste.

Alex Nesterov (4) - - OCT 19, 2017 does not count
UPDATED: OCT 19, 2017 Давно не видел в продаже. Как появился сразу купил. Думал будет прежний привкус кофейного солода. В итоге, не смотря на густую пену, отсутствует аромат прежнего пива. Имеется только явный привкус спиртов и неприятно горькое послевкусие. Технология варки радикально поменялась. Нет прежнего яркого жженого портерера с привкусом ликёра, кофе и ириса.

Turboninja (849) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 13, 2017
[email protected], from Alko Kaleva, Tampere, Finland. A bit sweet, soft nuances of licorice, some sweet, slightly roasted malts and a hint of lactose. Averagely balanced with medium taste spectrum. Medium aftertaste with slightly roasted malts and a hint of licorice. Medium body with medium/light carbonation. Overall, quite solid product, though a bit artificial and simple.

Bottle, 50cL. 7%. Purchase ("La maison russe", @Saumur, FR). Home. A sparkling black beer with a medium beige foamy head ; average retention. Roast, prune, licorice, black chocolate notes. Medium round sweet, light to medium dry refreshing. Medium body, thin oily texture, flat, sweet dry prune finish. Overall, good !

biilz (208) - SPAIN - SEP 10, 2017
UPDATED: SEP 26, 2017 Одно из лучших сортов пива производства Baltica. Достаточно мягкий вкус для портера. После легкой ржаной горячи идет долгое мягкое послевкусие. Идеально для ужина.
