500 ml bottle served in a large wine glass.

Pours red-brown with a thin, fizzy, very short-lived head that leaves very little lacing
Feel: creamy smooth full body; light carbonation seems a tiny bit too low.
Aroma: sweet and sour cherries with dark roasted grains, some alcohol esters, and hints of figs and other dark fruits.
Flavor: moderately strong with a clear but not overdone contribution from cherries. Lightly sweet with good balance. Hints of chocolate, figs and dried fruits. Rich complex malty flavor reflects the use of different types of malts.

O: a very rich Robust Porter with cherries that is worth seeking out.

Pours dark brown, almost no head.
Aroma of bready, toasty and chocolate-like malt.
Dry roasty flavours, although there is some sweet bready malt. Loads of cocoa and some soft espresso. Not much cherry at all.

Pours a dark brown color with red hues. Aroma is malty, with hints of roast and fruit. Roasted, light meaty elements, and some cherry. Stout notes of chocolate and roasted malt blend more with cherry as it warms. Bordering on smoky but never quite reaching it. Light to medium bodied a bit light for style, otherwise solid. Interesting beer here, and not bad.

Pours a dark kola hue with a wispy one finger and some leggy lacing,the smell is very captivating for me it's a beautiful mix of milky chocolate malts,sour cherries,a slight hint of vinegar and dark fruits and I know it sounds like an odd combination of aromas but it really is enticing,the mouthfeel is medium bodied with moderate carbonation and the taste is what I was hoping for a tasty blend of milky chocolate and sour tart cherries and overall when I first saw the label I had differing thoughts on whether this would work for me as im not the biggest fan of brews with cherries but oh my I found a new favourite in this drop and yes I'll be buying this again on my next visit to the bottleshop.

What I liked was the cherry was subdued but, on the other hand, the Baltic porter was nothing special. Body was a tad thin and boozy. Bit metallic in the finish otherwise good drinking.
