Drank 03-01-18 with Patrick @ Piet Huisman. Quite sweet, coffee aftertaste. Fine beer. Idiosynkrasie (8338) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - DEC 14, 2017
330ml bottle. Quasi black colour with small, thick, creamy, moderately lasting and lacing, beige head. Roasty, chocolately and minimally spicy, dark malty aroma, notes of dark chococlate, chocolate cookies, cocoa, hints of roasted nuts, a touch of liquorice. Taste is slightly sweet, chocolately, roasty dark malty and fruity hoppy, notes of dark chocolate, hints of roasted nuts, a touch of liquorice, treacle, cocoa, fruity complement with notes of cherry, red berries, a touch of plum; oily texture, carbonation isn't too lively but accounts for drinkability due to an alleviating, refreshing effect.

Opaque colour, small steady beige head. Toasted aroma has some licorice and cocoa. Medium-bodied. Slightly sticky. Roasted malts, licorice, vegetables, ash, semi-sweet. Not really so close to the most typical old-skool Baltic porters. More crafty but same time kind of homebrewish approach.
Bottle, 33 cl, bought onboard Galaxy, Baltic Sea. Pleasant porter: smooth, yet powerful, well balanced. mjs (7815) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 26, 2017
(Bottle, 0.33 l - batch 236 - 10/11/2018, from a Selver, 20171026) The beer poured black. Its head was medium sized and lightly brown. Aroma had burnt malts, sweetness, dark chocolate and coffee. Palate was full bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were burnt malts, sweetness, dark chocolate, ash, alcohol and bitterness. Aftertaste was burnt, sweet and bitter. A too sweet burnt brew but not actually bad. ArtificialCyst (1471) - Szczecin, POLAND - OCT 23, 2017
Bottle thanks to martjoobolut! Roast, booze, dried fruit, chocolate, light sourness, medium body, low carb. vinivini (3248) - Gomel, BELARUS - OCT 22, 2017
Bottle. Pours opaque deep brown to black with huge beige airy head. Aroma: treacle, caramel, some roast & coffee, bread, dried fruit. Medium body. The taste offers a combination of toasted & roasted malts. Caramel & treacle, again. Coffee, chocolate. Rather sweet still well-drinkable. Good but not outstanding. brnandersen (4395) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 21, 2017
Draught at SKAAL. Near black with a reddish tinge. Sweet aroma with coffee, caramel malts, chocolate and a vinous note. Taste is light sweet. Medium body with a creamy texture and a soft carbonation. Finishes sweet with dark malts, bread and a rich fruityness. Nice Porter.
