0.5L bottle. Soiled clothes first and then little coffe grounds aroma. Cool used motor oil color with brown hat. Very cool look. Taste is also fat oili. Correct porter feeling and taste. Remind little summer clove and herbs. Little vanilla and little coffee caramel. Everything is on balance. Finish is bit alcohol, but not disturb very much. Best baltic porter so far.

UPDATED: JUL 16, 2015 Pours a deep black color, topped with a decent tan colored head, retention is also fine.
There is a very pleasant chocolate aroma mixed with some raosted aroma as well.
The taste is slightly sweet and creamy, chocolate is dominant, followed by roasted feel and coffee. The finish is mildly bitter.
All in all a very enjoyable beer.

500 ml. bottle shared. Purchased @ ABC Beers. Black, patchy moldy-looking mocha head. Nose is light licorice, syrup, dash molasses, engine oil & thick honey sweetness, quite syrupy, slick, sweet in a strongly herbal way. Taste is light herbal bitterness coupled with huge herbal, slightly industrial, slick syrupy sweetness, burned herbs, light anise, black licorice, honey sweet, quite a bit of molasses. Slick, touch industrial goopy & strongly syrupy body. Herbal, licorice, anise qualities of these are potentially divisive. Overal this is a surprisingly nice industrial offering, there seem to be a few surprisingly nice Baltic Porters floating around still in that part of the world from industrialized breweries. One can do little wrong with this one, quite pleasant.

Poured two and half fingers on a pitch black body. The head was quickly gone though.
The aroma is faint: roasted and black malt.
The taste is darkness with a sweet touch. Burnt and roasted malt with a sweet finish.
The texture is smooth with low carbonation.
It’s lacking in the smell area but the taste is nice.

Bottle 0,50L. Dark brown mahagony colour with small, light brown creamy head that sits down quickly, but doesn’t dissapear. Light malty aroma of caramel, chocolate and roasted malt. Light sweet, cacao taste with moderate bitter aftertaste with mild mouthfeel. Medium to full body, oily texture and light carbonation. Nicely balanced and lighter than Saku Puhade Porter. Very mild and drinkable.
