Bottle. Clear brownish colour with a medium moslty lasting head and some lacing. Rich aroma and taste of roasted malts, fruits and licorice. On the sweet side. saxo (19522) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - JUL 1, 2008

500ml Bottle - Very dark brown, almost black in colour with a tan head. Appealing aroma with raisins and prunes featuring prominently. Bittersweet tasting at first. It then becomes rather fruity with raisins,prunes and dates featuring along with some smoked notes. I can detect some Christmas pudding in there too. It is a bit sticky to taste but that does not detract from the enjoyment of the beer too much. Very tasty. Radek Kliber (7483) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - JUN 30, 2008

Appearance: dark brown porter with good cherry-ruby brown light shown. Medium light fine creamy head.3+
Nose: aroma of dry plums , sweet raisins, slightly smoky notes.
Flavor/Palate : Chewy , heavy bodied with bitter acidic hints. Light hint of sour rasin with ash like finish , late choco notes. Bigger body but comparing to Polish Baltics it does lack a bit of , same with complexity and finish.
Brought this bottle back from my recent trip to the Czech republic and I was able to share it with sloth this past week. Pours a dark black with a dense rocky head. Held up to light it reveals a lovely deep ruby tone thru the entire glass. Nose is of dark dark malts and some ripe plums. Whisps and hints of whole hops dance about as well. Steady carbonation. Legs are oily and dissipate readily. Body is surprisingly medium for a baltic. Body and mouthfeel are quite balanced and do not stray at all. It is not too big, or too watery. A patient and well executed Baltic Porter. nI will hunt this out again.

Sampled at GBF 2008. Dark copper, medium beige head. Nutty and extremely fudgy malt aroma with some herbal hops in the background. Medium bodied and smooth. A bit sweet with a dry finish, low bitterness. A little too much of that fudge, a bit less and my score would have been higher. armando629 (2456) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 13, 2008

(Bottle at St. Urho’s on 2008-04-08) Almost black. Small dense head. Nose contains alchol and sweet malts. Fizzy palate. Pretty light taste, some roasted malts. Some sauerkraut taste. bermod (119) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - MAY 10, 2008
Aroma is very syrupy-sweet with roasted malts and notes of coffee. Sweet, slight toffeish-malty aroma is roasted, syrup, coffee and a little of alcohol. Quite good, just too darn sweet. lagomswedish (213) - Umeå, SWEDEN - MAY 5, 2008
Bottle from ALKO in Finland. Hugely sweet porter that is way off balance. I struggled to find anything behind the sweetness and gave up after a few sips. That they add sugar - among other things - marks this beer right down in my book. Drink enough of this stuff and your teeth will all fall out.
