Wulfstan's rating

   AROMA 9/10   APPEARANCE 5/5   TASTE 10/10   PALATE 5/5   OVERALL 20/20
Wulfstan (509) - California, USA - OCT 5, 2009
This Baltic poter is outstanding, with rich, complex flavour and texture, yet high drinkability. Basically black, it has a very large, rich, frothy light brown head that shrinks only slowly to a permanent, thin, foamy top and rich, frothy lace. The aroma is mild wine, chocolate, prunes, toast. Although with firm, complex elements, its somewhat subdued. The taste is rich, complex, smooth and clean. All flavours, sweetness and bitterness are beautifully balanced with complex taste of leaves, chocolate, dark toasted brown bread, prunes, a hint of port, some raisin, black pepper, the latter stronger in the finish, with an increasing taste of black coffee condensed with brown sugar that is stronger by the end. It is rather dry throughout, not too bitter or sweet. In the middle, it has a definite but light sweetness and light but slightly stronger bitterness right at the finish, but for most of the time, up front and in the final finish and aftertaste, it is mostly dry, clean, and leafy.

TeijoA (51) - Turku, FINLAND - FEB 24, 2017
33 cl bottle, BBE 23/11/2018. Probably my most often drank beer of the last couple of years. Smooth black beer with a nice beige head. Sweet chocolate aromas with roasty, smooth coffee, some ripe dark fruit. Taste of chocolate and coffee with a roasty, hoppy finish. Gets quite dry(ing) towards the end. The medium- body is a mixed bag; drinkability is high, but sometimes one yearns for more. Great beer.

dysenteri (231) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - FEB 21, 2017
Bottle from 2015. Black, beige head. Aroma is dark fruit, raisins, chocolate, coffee, bread, leathery. Medium sweetness with light/medium bitterness. Medium body, thin creamy texture with a pretty lively carbonation. A porter that draws to the dark fruit area, kinda like it.

ebone1988 (1676) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - FEB 19, 2017
For the book! Aroma is malty, coffee, roasted malt, bready, sweet but nice. Appearance is dark dark brown, light tan head, poured thickish. Taste is roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, bready, a little astringent, bready, somewhat disappointing. Mouthfeel is medium body, light carbonation, astringent roasted malt aftertaste. Overall, this one just misses the mark.

mviljamaa (29) - Jyvskyl, FINLAND - FEB 1, 2017
Its good beer in the porter genre. A bit mmmi-ish and home beer -like though, so it doesnt taste like a "world-class" beer should. But some may find this a plus, rather than a minus. Aroma is strong, dark and rich. The taste is also very burnt and rich. Chocolate, coffee, raisins, all sorts of "black" things. Good is that theres not too much bitterness. The beer might even be a bit too sweet, but this might be a matter of taste. The carbonation feels a bit sloppy, but fits to the style. A very "standard" porter Id say. A good "reference standard" beer in this genre.

Mindwarp (239) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 31, 2017
UPDATED: FEB 1, 2017 Pours a dark black with a tan head and nice lacing. Aroma of malt and a hint of chocolate. Taste is not as exciting as Id hoped. I love Porters and this one is good but not as good as others I love. Although a good Porter I wouldnt drink it again because I now of a lot better Porters out there.

Scouser (348) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 6, 2016
2009 vintage... Pours a black color with loads of beige lacing and head. Smells like a chocolate factory, really nice! Chalky palate... Never rate palate... This is a must. Chocolate and coffee flavor a nice porter.

mcberko (16065) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 13, 2016
12 oz. bottle, pours black with a medium tan / light brown head. Aroma brings out roasted malt upfront, followed by cocoa powder and a little chalky notes. Flavour is robust, with dry cocoa powder, toasted malt, and a little coal. Robust and smooth on the palate. Lots of depth. A pleasure to drink. Excellent.

Aggiebob (978) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - OCT 31, 2016
Bottle. Black with a tan head. Aroma of roasted malt and cocoa. The flavor also had a coffee taste. It was bittersweet.

hershiser2 (2609) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - OCT 11, 2016
$3.99 bottle from Wine Warehouse. Pours THICK and extremely dark, nearly black with a frothy, soft medium brown head. Aroma of dark chocolates, smoke, caramel. Taste is smoked deli meat, caramel, dark fruit, chocolate, coffee, ash, molasses... pretty complex and pretty delicious.

Linkiewitz (101) - Warsaw, POLAND - SEP 19, 2016
UPDATED: DEC 8, 2016 Aromat: Nuty palone, można pokusić się o stwierdzenie, że wręcz wędzone. Aczkolwiek nie jest to bardzo wyraźne odczucie. Wygląd: Czarne, z drobną pianą. Smak: Pierwszą rzeczą jaką możemy odczuć jest wysoka paloność i idące z nimi w parze nuty owocowe, nawiasem mwiąc dość subtelne. Goryczka jest analogiczna do wyżej opisanych odczuć. Ogłem, największymi mankamentami tego piwa sa jego jednowymiarowość, brak ciała i spora wodnistość, co sprawia, że piwo daje wrażenie trywialnego, przeciętnego przedstawiciela stylu.
