Found in a Jon's in Burbank. Nice niche porter in the middle of the valley.

Pours pretty black and yet has a clearness around the edges that looks like cola. Minimal ring of head around the edge of the glass.

Aroma is stone fruit, malt, cherry, bit of sweaty leather. Sip is thin syrup, chocolate, anise, dead yeast, no kidding potato and sweet beets. There's a graininess that I'm attributing to borsch. Not getting the toffee others note unless it's the cheap stuff in CVS. This has a mouth feel of thin stout (as most porters do), with a grainy end, you can tell by my description this is a bit rough but goes down smooth enough. 7% is completely hidden, not hot or burny.

Interesting porter with more rough edge than some overly sweet variants. Plus, now I've checked off Russia in my "countries you've had beers from"!

Ebony with a 1/2" tan head, which lasts. moderate lacing.

Aroma is a bit muted: Coffee, roast malt.

Taste is caramel, coffee, toffee, roast malt, a bit of sweetness.

Full body, light carbonation. Semisweet finish.

Outstanding Baltic Porter.

500 ml bottle, from Løvbjerg, Ikast. ABV is 7.0%. Black colour, ruby in the highlights. Large beige head. The aroma is bready and moderately roasty, some fruity hints too. Pleasant and smooth flavour of moderately roasted malts, black bread, mild coffee, chocolate and caramel, but not too sweet. Very moderate hops. A beer I might well buy again.

Very dark brown, with no light leaking through. 2+ fingers of finely-textured tan head.

Smell is brownie batter, but slightly less sweet, a little cola, and some roasty malt aroma.

Taste is roasted nuts, cola, brown bread, and slight earthy char. Light , pleasant bitterness. A slight woody note as it warms.

Feel is light-side of-medium, with light, very fine carbonation tingle. Drying finish.

Overall, a good, basic Baltic porter . I wish it had slightly more carbonation, but that's a minor point. Best By date is 6/20/20 , but it's still good.(Bottling date : 6/20/19) If I think to look at it, I'd definitely try it again, younger. It's held up well , even though it wasn't refrigerated at the store.
