dbhenry (124) - El Paso, Texas, USA - MAY 19, 2014
This porter has very distinctive malt flavorings. It is a dark beer with caramelized malt and light to medium hops. The taste is rich and deep, as a porter should be.

ruigo (1091) - PORTUGAL - MAY 14, 2014
Shared a 50cl bottle from the local Russian shop. Pours a deep dark brown colour, almost black, with a small tan head. Aroma is coffee, date, chocolate, caramel and liquorice. Soft to average carbonation and medium to light body. Taste is medium bitter passing a light sweet and finishing in long dry and sweet notes. Overall, a surprising beer, quite light but tasteful.

zizzybalubba (1417) - Elizabeth City, North Carolina, USA - MAY 12, 2014
500 mL bottle from Total Wine (Triangle), Raleigh, NC. Dark brown pour with a frothy tan head. Aroma of dark fruit, caramel malt, and mild coffee. Taste is much stronger than anticipated at 7% ABV with the alcohol easily present on the initial taste. Also detect blueberry, chocolate, smoke, and what I assume is the maltose syrup (there is a distinct sweetness that I can only assume comes from the maltose. Far better than other offerings I have tried from this brewer.

UPDATED: AUG 14, 2014 Bottle from, A Taste of Europe, Gulfgate, Sarasota, Florida. Aroma was nice and malty. Taste of chocolate and a bit of coffee. Palate was fruity and long. Overall, not as rich as the Munchner Doppelbocks i prefer, but it was very good and tasty. Alcohol was just right and warming.

superspak (2602) - Michigan, USA - APR 28, 2014
500 ml bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 4/7/2013. Pours pitch black color with a 2 finger dense khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of chocolate, cocoa, caramel, toffee, toast, biscuit, roasted malt, raisin, plum, herbal, light nuttiness, and yeast/toasty earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of dark/roasted malt and yeast ester notes; with solid strength. Taste of chocolate, cocoa, caramel, toffee, toast, biscuit, roasted malt, light nuttiness, raisin, plum, herbal, and toast/yeast earthiness. Minimal earthy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of chocolate, cocoa, caramel, toffee, toast, biscuit, light nuttiness, raisin, plum, herbal, and yeast earthiness on the finish. Nice balance and solid complexity of dark/roasted malt and yeast ester flavors; with good robustness and no cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth and moderately creamy mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is well hidden with only a light warming present after the finish. Overall this is a good Baltic porter. Good balance and solid complexity of dark/roasted malt and yeast ester flavors; and very smooth to sip on for the ABV. A pleasantly enjoyable offering.
