Outstanding representation of a Porter. Pours the right color with the right nose and right head. The ones I had were right all around. Good roast and body. Skál i botn!

Excellent porter. In the palate, hints of coffee and even dark chocolate, that they bring to the scents of a Baltic Porter. Full taste that create an expectation of a higher alcohol content that is simply not there. Very drinkable and non-binding as a Baltic; for me a great beer.

It works very well. Chocolate, with liquorice, vanilla; no burnt flavours, very clean.

Bottle. Pours dark with light brown head. Aromas of coffee immediately. Clear notes of coffee, toffee, and chocolate, nutty and smooooth. Really great and easy drinking porter, perhaps easy to forget it’s alcohol so use caution (ha ha ha). Keeps you warm in winter, expertly done, excellent brew.

I remember back a couple years ago when no one wanted to try Einstok and every time I got this on discount, it was literally like drinking gold. It runs so smooth for a porter with a nice smokey taste that’s very rich :)

Close to perfection A very good dark beer, well balanced between dark malt and hop flavours, sustained by a perfect body.

Bottle @De Tolly joogipood, Tartu, Estonia. Pours with small brown head. Aroma of wood, slightly chocolately, coffee. Taste of dark chocolate, dark bread, caramel, burnt malt, slight smokeness. It has everything I love about porters.

UPDATED: SEP 29, 2015 Aroma of coffee and dark chocolate. Dark brown colour with light brown head. Flavour of coffee but not to strong. Very silky and smooth in the mouth.

Full body with strong coffee and tasty chocolate notes that linger, a roasted finish.
