Bottle from the brewery, cellared two years. Awesome black color with thick tan foam. Porter front taste then chocolate with the oak and vanilla finish. Very smooth! jercraigs (10731) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 28, 2015
2015-08-26. Back body with a small tan head. 3+ Aroma of dusty dry malt, light roast and herbal notes. Flavour is interesting, dark malt, light herbal licorice touch, moderate dusty dark malt. Average plus bodied palate, good carbonation. Solid but the base malt is not quite rich enough for my taste today. Bottle cellared several months from Ye Old Spirit Shop, Frederick, MD. trevor211 (1681) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 27, 2015
Overheard: "What’s a snozzcumber, exactly?"
"snozzBERRY... not cucumber."

75cl bottle shared by Alexcg, thanks! Pours dark brown with a modest beige head. Aroma of roasted malt with hints of bourbon, wood, spices and caramel. Medium sweet with nice, quite complex and rather flavourful with a mild bitterness. Fairly unusual, but quite tasty Baltic porter.
