Notes: Year-round availibility. An imperial Baltic Porter as dark as the Estonian winter nights. Strong enough to keep you warm through the cold evenings.

Pitch black with a chocolate milk-colored head that dissipated fast. Smells of chocolate-coated raisins, maraschino cherries, rum-soaked orange zest. Taste opens with a bright sweetness, chocolate chips and caramel, followed by marshmallow and blood orange, and a black coffee aftertaste. This is a sweet but complex beer. Mouthfeel is very full, creamy. Never had a beer quite like this before! So massively malty and warm.

Deep black colour, reduced foam.
Smells like cake, marzipan, spices.
The taste is characterized by licorice, caramel, coffee, roasted barley and cloves. Dry and bitter aftertaste with some burnt sugar also.
Really good. Excellent quality/price ratio.

Tap @ The Penguin Bar, Bilbao - Pours jet black with a small tanned head. Medium carbonation. Aroma - dark stoned fruits, coffee, roasted malts, sherry/port alcohol feel. Taste - sweet, sherry feel, roasted malts, stoned fruits, coffee, chocolate. Very nice Baltic porter.

330 ml bottle, Bottles and Books, Bristol - As above with noticeable smoky overtones and nice long bitter finish with some alcoholic warmth. Nice to return to this ale.

Absolute gem of a beer. Pours very dark with a coffee-like crema head. Wonderful liquorice and raisin notes on the nose. As with the aroma liquorice and dried fruit are abundant in the flavour as well. Sweet molasses, a warming alcohol presence and a mild bitter coffee finish. Carbonation is low-medium giving a full-bodied but exceptionally smooth finish.

Black as the night sky and carbon, the foam is brown. That is powerful Baltic porter, which is like a black winter night, and warms You during the cool evenings.

Made in Nõmme, but Christopher Pilkington, who worked in BrewDog, gets an extra toch.

Tasty, but strong!

Day 15 of the 2016 Craft BeerAdvent calendar

Dark brown almost black with thick 2 finger chocolate coloured head and thick lacing. 4.5

Molasses scent with a red wine and mixed blackberry fruitiness.

Tastes of sweet chocolate malts and slight burnt coffee and alcohol

Feels thick, almost a medicine feel along the tongue and going down

Porters are not my favourite to review but this one gets a thumbs up, maybe just a bit too hard alcohol taste for me.

That's a big beer. It's all about chocolate, coffee and vanilla. The roasted malts are complimented by the earthy hops. It's dense and bold. It's a bit sweet for a porter but it's a great beer

Crowler from El Bait Shop, Des Moines, 9 March. From fridge, pours black & silky, minimal head/lacing. It’s 10.5%, but less alcohol taste than you’d expect. Great, high-octane porter.
