look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A dark brown clear brew, a small tan head, little lacing but good curtains.

Smells of dark fruits, smoked sausages and soy sauce.

Sweet brown sugar and dark syrup, molasses, burned bread crust, dates and a dash of dark coffee.

Medium high carbonation, small foamy bubbles, a soft, oily and somewhat sticky texture, a huge body. Not dry.

In all a very nice potent Porter, good sipping qualities.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Black, pours a nice head of medium thickness.

Aroma: Roasted malt, caramel, hint of licorice and woodsmoke.

Taste: Surprisingly light when you first sip it. A fairly standard porter with an emphasis on roasted malt. Maltyness hints you in the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, dry.

Overall: Porter is perhaps my favourite style of beer, and I’m always keen to try new ones. Having tried so many of them, my criteria is quite strict, so this could be rated higher, being a rather nice beer, but I know so many better ones! I feel like this one might be a bit too light if it weren’t for the reasonably high ABV — it supports the characteristics of the beer. The aroma is actually excellent, and I was expecting a very good beer from that. The taste does not disappoint, but it’s not as deep or developed as the aroma might suggest.

The colour is jet black; the large beige head is airy. Good head retention, some lacing.

The smell is light with clean hoppy-bitter notes. Some alcohol, smoked meat and air-dried ham. And lots of malt.

Some smoke in the balanced taste, lots of roasted sweet malty notes. Hints of pumpernickel bread. Smooth bitter notes with hints of oranges. Alcohol in the aftertaste as well as dark rye bread and a touch of solvents. Sponge cake dough in the finish.

The carbonation is medium strong, the small bubbles tickles the tongue. The liquid is a bit light.

A pleasant Baltic porter with a fine smoked note in the background.
