33cl bottle. Nice, light brown head. Black color. Decent lace. Nice, rich bigger body. Lighter, crisp carbonation. Very nice roasty aroma, but a hint of that metallic english malt aroma. Little chocolate. Light sweet and roasty taste. Definitely a quality porter. MrBeerFanatic (1058) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - MAY 17, 2012
Very dark brown with a big head with good retention. Aromas of chocolate, light wood, light smoke. Flavors of chocolate, slight wood, light toffee behind the chocolate, slight caramel, and a hint of hops come through but barely. Milky, slight burnt malt aftertaste, lightly sweet, good stuff. mike67 (1197) - , New Jersey, USA - JUL 11, 2012
11.2 OZ bottle. Pours black with a brown, foamy, long lasting head and a lot of lacing. Aroma is of toasted malt, bread crust, coffee, and hints of chocolate. Body is medium and smooth. Toasted malt, burnt grain, coffee, prunes and dark chocolate fill the mouth. Finish is medium and slightly bitter. Easy drinking porter. Caytinator (1005) - Waco, Texas, USA - AUG 19, 2012
Tasted at 3de Gents Bierfestival. Not sure what makes this a "baltic porter" other than the fact that it’s from Finland...it’s similar to a lot of other porters I’ve had. Pours black, with small tan head. Medium-light taste, a lighter alternative to an ImpStout. Quite bitter. Well-brewed. minihame2 (641) - Oulu, FINLAND - AUG 25, 2014
Pours black with thick tan head. Malty aroma with roasted coffee. Slightly bitter overall taste, not overpoweringly roasty. Soft mouthfeel, medium carbonation.

"fruity and sweet aroma and taste with tons of dark chocolate,fruit and licorice. almost too much going on, but they manage to pull it off. Thick and syrupy as well." Kauge (1957) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 22, 2014
Bottle as a gift from Espoo. BB 07.08.2015. Pours a thick red-hued black with a tan head. Retains, laces. Nose is initially kind of sour, reminds me of "raw" bread and even sauerkraut, with roasty aspects way back there somewhere. Taste on the other hand is hop-driven at first, then roasted malts rise forward. Letting it warm for some time... Now, after some 20 minutes, the head’s dropped to a film, thicker around the edge, lacing still good. Aroma is very nice roasty ashy dry chocolaty cocoa bitter, coffee, figs and plums, seaweed and marmalade. Taste is roasted malts, dark fruits, nicely balanced sweet and bitter, black bread, molasses. Full body, thick syrupy palate backed up by the rather lively carbonation, texture smooth and only somewhat grainy. Expected it to be better but still good. adamnowek (2709) - Brussels, BELGIUM - FEB 20, 2015
Darrrrk. Roasted malt and coffee at first followed by a slightly sour milkiness. Grand beer. MonsterMagnet (1444) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 13, 2015
Bottle from Euro Local Swap 3/2015, cheers VastActiv! Pours black with a tan head. Roast, smoke, milk chocolate, coffee, chalk, candy sugar, dark fruit. Oily to creamy texture, a bit thin body, lingering roasty finish. Nice. IslandHaole (1268) - Misawa, JAPAN - NOV 16, 2015
Very dark brown with a foamy tan head, loads of big bubbles. Dusty baking chocolate and coffee, has a sweet, tangy flavor. Coffee is prominent but not overwhelming, has an unusual lingering aftertaste, still pretty darned good!
Thanks to rosenbergh for this treat, Mahalo Jan!
