TChrome (1447) - Bedford, Texas, USA - OCT 23, 2004
Dark brown color with a big thick creamy off white head that is very well retained. Aroma is lightly rich sweet malt, light chocolate, slight touch of smoke. Flavor is rich chocolate malt with a tiny bit of of hops. Very enjoyable beer from a far away country.

BeerAteHer (384) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - OCT 23, 2004
Pours a beautiful burgundy black color with a thick head that lasts as thick lacing to the end of the glass. Aroma is rather bland compared to similar European porters and has undertones of a tire factory. However, the complexity of the flavor holds its own, presenting a floral bouquet and rich, caramel malt undertones. Pleasant, thick body to this brew. Intense strawberry Pop Tart aftertaste. I’d say this Latvian outfit offers a great value at $1.99. Fix the aroma and other spiritous elements and it will become a classic brew.

bu11zeye (12147) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - OCT 17, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 24, 2004 (Bottle) Pours a dark brown body with ruby highlights and a medium-sized light brown head. Aroma of sweet roasted malt, caramel, mustiness, raisins, coffee, and a hint of chocolate. Creamy texture with a somewhat bitter finish. NIce raosted malt flavor with some coffee and chocolate.

Kinz (3506) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - OCT 15, 2004
Very dark brown, fairly creamy head faded slowly. Dark bready aroma. Flavor was of rich dark bread drizzled with honey, quite sweet. Faint fruitiness as well. Not overwhelmingly flavorful, but quite decent.

Ungstrup (30188) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 9, 2004
A red-brown beer with a chocolate brown disappearing head. The aroma is slightly roasty with notes of caramel. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of caramel and candy sugar, leading up to a dry end. In my book this isn’t a porter, but closer to a Vienna, though it is still an OK beer.

badgerben (4595) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - OCT 4, 2004
Near black color with a medium head. Good coffee and barley aroma. Very thick mouthfeel. Tastes like slightly burnt coffee with a bit of chocolate. Smooth and tasty... a good way to hit 700.

brewshthereen (316) - Oregon, USA - SEP 24, 2004
Poured dark brown with reddish hues. Nice lace along the glass. The aroma wasn’t really that interesting. A bit yeasty and unclean smelling. The mouthfeel is suprisingly creamy. Exotic coffee, carmel and mild chocolate. My first baltic and it won’t be the last.
