1 pint bottle. Wort extract 13,8%.
Pours deep brown beer with moderate beige head, retention is ok. Smell is thin, dark malts and some roastiness. Taste is strange, mineral and disappointing, too low original gravity, low alcohol, evident lack of caramel, somewhat papery. This causes loss of scores, it's unlikely a good baltic porter.

Colour ruby brown, clear, no foam. The malt, roasted, are delicate fruity notes. Taste clearer but not surprising, roasted at a low, slightly dark fruit, caramel. Beer slightly sour sweet. Saturation average. Notes: very weak ..... and this is not an imperial porter.

Bottle from Rimi grocery store in Vilnius. From notes.

A - Poured a maroon/amber colour with a one finger, eggshell head. No visible carbonation and slightly hazy. Great head retention.

S - Really mild. The only thing I got was sweet malts.

T - Definately didn't taste like a Porter of any sorts. Very faint notes of caramel. Much more like an English Pale Ale of sorts.

M - Medium body and light carbonation. Sweet lingering finish.

O/D - OK. Nothing I'd seek out. Definately not to style and not overly flavourful. Unintersting.
