3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Great flavor hits you before the taste does... strong, chocolate, but bitter.
Zwart/donkerbruin, iets lichtdoorlatend, beige schuimkraag, weinig koolzuur zichtbaar.
Aroma: Geroosterde mouten, karamel, iets zoetig en rood fruit.
Smaak: Roasty genoeg, geroosterd brood, vrij zoet..lijkt wel lactose, kruidig gehopt en een beste bitter. Iets alcohol warmte merkbaar.
Medium body, iets romig en vol genoeg. Voldoende koolzuur. In de afdronk roasty bitter met een zoetje. Smaakvol.

UPDATED: DEC 27, 2017 U Konstatu, Prague. Aroma: dark roast, bread crust, maybe sweet honey. Taste: coffee. Medium body. Rather flat. Pleasant bready bitterness in the aftertaste. More complexity and roast would do it good. Derbeth (1126) - Kraków, POLAND - NOV 26, 2017
Bottle. Dark brown colour, almost black. Aroma is coffee, some caramel, some esters, some alcohol. Light bitterness, light sweetness. Full body, but not cloying. I don't like Baltic porters, but this one is ok. rouhlas (3986) - Thessaloniki, GREECE - NOV 26, 2017

Butelka 0,33 l. Wypita 18.11.2017. Aromat bardzo słaby. Piana szybko opadająca. W smaku czekolada, palone słody. Słodkie, ale nie męczące, z kontrującą goryczką. Alkohol ukryty. midovark (1137) - Budapest, HUNGARY - NOV 10, 2017
0.5 l bottle shared at home. Pours pitch black with beige head. Nose is fruits, some smoke, roasted and earthy notes. Taste is the same, eith some fruity-roasted finish. Average carbo, light to medium body. Decent brew. Gangstergafje (1349) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - OCT 9, 2017
09-10-2017; bottle; at home (bought somewhere in Bratislava, Slovakia).
The looks the beer are lovely. They are exactly like they should be. The beer is almost black, thats how dark it is. In the light a lovely perfect ruby red glow can be seen. The beer seems rather clear. On top of the beer lovely layer of brown soft foam is formed. Foam retention is really good. I like it.
The smell of the beer is nice. Not the strongest nor the best smelling Porter, but it is nice. I smell some sweet malts and a bitter hop touch. Most of the smell is filled by nice aromas of dark and red fruit. I smell strong cherry, raspberry, some plum. Mostly raspberry though. They give a nice sweet acidity to the smell. Nice.
In the taste this fruitiness comes back. I taste nice sweet 'n sour raspberry, some cherry and a nice plum touch. There are also nice malts, with a slight chocolaty touch to it. Also some liquorice is there. Hops give a nice bitterness, but don't come with clear hoppy flavours. They are covered by the fresh fruits. The beer is quite sour for a porter, because of the sour fruits, but it remains well balanced. Although I suppose not everyone like it (I do luckily).
The palate of the beer is nice. The beer has a nice full body, smooth texture and medium carbonation. The sourness of the fruits gives a nice tingle on the tongue. I like it. The finish of the beer is nice. It contains, again, nice refreshingly sour 'n sweet raspberry, some chocolate malts and a bitter touch of hops. Also some liquorice is there. Nice. Not a regular Porter as I'd expect, but quite a fruity Porter. Very nice though. MartinNaxera (107) - Pilsen, CZECH REPUBLIC - OCT 5, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 5, 2017 Why not... Very sweet one. Tastes like plums, so it's definitely a Czech taste. DejanSt (443) - Trencin, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - OCT 3, 2017
