Bottled. A deep red beer with a lazing brown head. The aroma has notes of caramel, malt, and bread. The flavor is sweet with notes of caramel, malt, bread, and a bit of liqurice, leading to a dry lightly roasted finish. Lacks a bit to be a Baltic Porter. madsberg (11776) - Søborg, DENMARK - NOV 22, 2012

Bottle 50 cl. Courtesy of oh6gdx. Comes as "Stallhagen Winter Porter". Pours a clear deep brown with a warm tint of red and a smallish light brown head. Toffeeish aroma, some cocoa powder and sweet vanilla. Solid body, the roast now comes through more, rather burned ashy malts, quite rough with some alcohol presence - as most often in Baltic Porters. Malty bitter finish. 221112 gnoff (11100) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 15, 2012

Pours a dark cola and settled black. Big light brown head that settles to a thick ringed collar. Good head retention to this.
nose is mostly licorice, roasted or smoked malts, and some smoked and salted ham.
Good amount of chocolate licorice in the taste with salted and smoked meat. Some nice hop bitterness in this as well.
Creamy body, a bit chewy but enough carbonation to sort this out. Nice licorice sweetness to mix this up in the mouth as well.
Aroma has sweet licorice and bit hoppiness. Black coffee, some beige lacing. Taste has dry roasted malt, sweet licorice also, long and full flavor, full bodied, soft feel, low carbonation. Tasty beer with nice aroma, good body and balance. One to enjoy. Tranquillity (2533) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 8, 2012
