imdownthepub (10297) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 26, 2009
Bottled, 500ml at The Katedra Pub, Krakow. Black with tan head. Thick treacle tarry beer enjoyed in a distinctly odd pub, there is coffee, roasty notes with chocolate bitterness, alcohol and liquorice. Champagne Supernova by Oasis was being played and it seemed entirely in keeping, this seemed like a Supernova and took me ages to get through.

Bov (9509) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - APR 21, 2012
courtesy of Toni Flükiger - almost black beer with a rubish hue; chaotic foam left; earthy, chocolatey and slightly buttery nutty aroma; velvety mouthfeel and full-bodied, low bitterness and long malty earthy and chocolatey finish - pretty nice

FatPhil (9359) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 10, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 30, 2014 500ml bottle (Małe Piwo, Warsaw) - Shared with SRPOL - thanks! (6:5:6:4:13=3.4)
Soft sweet dark roast aroma. This is so much like Saku Porter from the olden days it’s not true. Absolutely classic Baltic porter. Lovely full roast, a bit sweet, and smooth in the palate. Not quite as much character as the previous two (Komes and Kormoran), but still great - really looks the part in particular.
Rerate: 500ml bottle (?, Poland) (6:5:6+:4:14=3.5+)
Sweet and rich, smooth, and full. Nice roast. Again, does remind me of the old Saku Porters. Dear Carlsberg, please drink one of these, and then get whichever facility brews your now-pathetic porter to do something like this. Maybe a bit too sweet, but truly a delicious baltic porter, great for the end of an evening or session.

Sammy (8660) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 22, 2010
Bottle at Delaney’s. Not an Imperial Porter as advertised. Black body with no head. Carbonation significant. Tad below average mouthfeel. SOurness to it, but also some roast and chocolate. Drinkable, but not very. The distributor called this a summer porter.

Drake (8563) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - NOV 18, 2011
500 mL bottle from Total Wine West Richmond, VA. Pours a dark brown color with a medium tan head. Good head retention. Aroma of roasted malts, raisins, chocolate, earthy notes. The taste is cherries, raisins, chocolate, roasted malts, anise and a faint hoppy finish. Medium-full bodied, soft carbonation and a faint bit of booze. Nice.

kevnic2008 (8092) - Baden-Baden, GERMANY - MAY 10, 2012
Light roasted aroma, nice brownish head. Roasted taste of liquorice and roasted malts. Alc is easily disguised.

Rune (8065) - Tromsř, NORWAY - APR 11, 2010
500ml from Bestillingsutvalget, Vinmonopolet. Lots of small dimples to a frothy and fawn coloured head, displaying a solid stand. Deeply, near-black in the glass with a brownish shade if held to the light. Aroma of dark malts, containing coffee and anise. Fine blended flavour of dark chocolate and earthy malts with an integrated backdrop of dark fruits. Subdued sweetness and alcohol. Gets a bit grainy after an hour in the glass, otherwise well rounded to the palate and pleasant to drink (Tromsř, 10.04.2010).

JorisPPattyn (7929) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUN 25, 2008
Small, but persistent dark beige head over black beer with red highlights. Rich nose, not sweet, but mild coffee, roasted and pine needles, slightly smoked. Sweet, coffee-filled chocolate bar, melted; even a bit praliné. Medium to well-bodied, quite slick, alcoholwarming if discreet. Good porter - the real Baltic Imperial! An excellent initiative of Bractwo Piwne!

Quack-Duck (7919) - Down South, GERMANY - JUN 9, 2011
bottle, kindly donated by Schroppfy - Thank you! Deep black colour, large and creamy beige head. Promising aroma of chocolate, cocoa powder and dark fruits. Full-bodied, intensiovely malty with loads and loads of bitter chocolate, cocoa powder, shy hints of caramel, nuts and raisins. Not sweet, yet very malty. Perfectly balanced, a delight!
