It’s black with a huge, light-brown, creamy and lasting head. The aroma is mild/light with notes of roasted malt, light smoke, dark, preserved fruits and licorice. The mouth-feel is full. The flavour is moderately sweet with notes of roasted malt, licorice, light smoke, dark preserved fruits, whipped cream and the finish is slightly dry – a nice one. oh6gdx (26487) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAR 2, 2011

500ml bottle (VikingLine XPRS) as "Pig and Rooster Baltic Porter"Miksu (5053) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - FEB 19, 2011
6 Deeply roasted mashy aroma, some sharp burnt ffruity sour bute (but not acidic sourness per se) like old bottle conditioned guinness.
5 Black, and a hauge tan head, which settles to a ring.
7 Huge roasty taste. Anna says ashy, bit I think it’s just nicely burnt and short of ashy.
4 Full palate, crisp carbonation. Finish very roasty and burnt, some woodiness too. Late finish has just a gently bitterness.
15 Covers the 7% very well, I could stick pint after pint of this down me. Really burnt, but in no way astringent. Great baltic stout, all it needs is some more aromatic hops, and it would rock.
Draught at Black Door, Helsinki. Almost opaque black color. Roasty aroma with coffee, salty licorice and dark bread. Sweetish flavor with coffee, toffee, dark caramel, some crisp sulfur and maybe hint of whisky and vanilla. Full bodied. Fairly balanced and good porter.

Very dark brown porter with a roasted malty and chocolaty aroma. Taste is rich in malts, moderately roasted with chocolaty and licorice notes. Nice body, tasty porter.

Dark brown, almost opaque color, small steady creamy off-white head, lace. Light toasted aroma with some papery-malty notes. Medium to full bodied. Sticky, almost a bit jelly-glueish palate. Berryish flavor with cocoa, chocolate maltyness. Sticky alcohol in the finish, also some licorice and vegetable notes. Good body, but unfortunately this brew is way too unbalanced and has not much of typical Baltic Porter character.
