Pours a dark brown with ruby edges and two big fingers of beige head. The nose is almost burnt roast - not in a bad way, more like in a smokey way. The body is solid and the flavor profile includes a good roasted bite. My only complaint is that I'm not getting any licorice essence.

330 ml bottle, Irma supermarket, Copenhagen - Pours dark brown with a small tan head. Smell - light smoky, roasted malt. Taste - roasted malts leading to a light dry bitter finish. Fantastic cheap but high quality ale.

Poured into a Fremont small snifter. Pours a very dark mahogany brown, appearing nearly opaque in the glass with a thin, light brown head that dissipates to patches. Aroma of sweet toasted malt, cocoa, light lactose and vanilla. Flavor is toasted dark malt with a hint of char, dark chocolate, coffee, light licorice. A smoky char flavor develops in the finish that sits perfectly above the dark malts. Medium bodied with a light creaminess. A very nice smoky stout that has enough complexity that different flavors are revealed throughout the taste and the finishing smokiness is well supported by the flavorful malt. Really quite nicely balanced considering some strong flavors here. I really liked this a lot. Labelled as both a porter and stout, it does hew to the foreign/export stout profile the closest, but is more complex than that style usually is. I would like to try other offerings from this brewery. Nice.

Poured from the bottle into a stemless wine glass. From notes. Best before April 2 2015.

Deep dark walnut brown body, some cola like carbonation a bit too. Creamy two finger and tan swiss cheese like head, with some faint clump like lacing. Looks decent.

Nice bouquet with an interesting porter angle. Hints of leafy tobacco and mild chocolate, with a mild sense of licorice as well.

Palate comes out nicely but more toned down and simple than the nose indicates. Mild roasted quality and strangely some caramel hints. Fruity esters a bit with a bit of sticky sensations but the licorice quality seems to come out a bit more toned down. Slightly watery feel on the palate with mild carbonation

A decent brew with a solid porter character but seems to be hard to discern style or one that seems distinct.

330 ml bottle into snifter, bottled on 1/7/2008. Pours hazy fairly pitch black color with brown edges, with a 1 finger dense tan head with goof retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of big raisin, plum, dark chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, coffee, toast, dark bread, molasses, light smoke, light licorice, herbal, and roasted earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good complexity of dark/roasted malt, light licorice, and yeast ester notes; with good strength. Taste of big dark chocolate, cocoa, toast, dark bread, roasted malt, coffee, raisin, molasses, light smoke, light licorice, herbal, and roasted earthiness. Slight roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of dark chocolate, cocoa, toast, dark bread, roasted malt, coffee, molasses, light smoke, light licorice, and roasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice complexity and balance of dark/roasted malt flavors, light licorice, and yeast ester flavors; with great robustness and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light-medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a very creamy and lightly slick/chalky mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent Baltic porter! All around great complexity and balance of dark/roasted malt, licorice, and yeast ester flavors; and very smooth to sip on. A very enjoyable offering.
