TizzleJizzle (529) - Garland, Texas, USA - APR 16, 2014
Pint bottle. Poured a translucent dark brown color with a thin khaki head and no lacing. Tasted sweet, caramel malts, and roasted and toasted malts. Medium-high carbonation, medium body. Not bad, but I’ve had

OldGrowth (2480) - North Carolina, USA - APR 12, 2014
Bottle from Triangle Wine, Morrisville. Ok aroma, sweet. Malty, earthy peaty, yeasty. Dark reddish brown color, small to no head, no lace. Sweet flavor. Medium body, smooth creamy mouthfeel, short sweet finish. It’s ok, not making me want to finish this, but I’m giving some doubt as far as how far this beer has to travel.

Petkus331 (157) - Redford, Michigan, USA - APR 2, 2014
Aroma of bubblegum, plum, raisin, and banana. Appearence is dark brown, almost black with thin light caramel brown head, not much visible carbonation. Taste is of sweet and rich raisin with hints of bubblegum balanced with mildly bitter roast malt and a touch of coffee. Palate is thick and fizzy, but not syrupy, very nice. Overall, I love this Baltic porter.

gildnerk (69) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - MAR 27, 2014
Pours very dark ruby red (black to the eye) with a tall, fluffy beige-brown head that dissolves into lace. Aromas are rather bright, with notes of grass, caramel and yeast. The taste is at first light and sweet, but works into a more robust, complex end wth an aftertaste of baker’s chocolate, molasses and prunes. The fruitiness at the end tends towards acidity. A multifaceted and enjoyable Baltic porter.

Schwarzes Bier mit schöner beigen Schaumkrone. Geruch sehr röstmalzig, Schokolade, fruchtig. Geschmack röstmalzig, schokoladig, Kaffee, dunkle Früchte, minimal säuerlich.

Senka (348) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 15, 2014
You rarely see it outside Russia. This is a decent porter - medium bodied, hoppy, with loads of caramel malts. Pours dark brown, with creamy head. I actually miss that beer from times to times.

njnut (156) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - MAR 9, 2014
Poured into shaker. A reddy black with tan head and thick lace. Carbonation was soft, slick body. Aroma of coffee, raisin, and dark chocolate. Taste is dark chocolate, roasted malts, some vanilla. Bitters in the finish and the roasted malts get stronger. Overall a bit weaker tasting than some of the craft porters out there but I don’t say that as a negative. I was suprised by this one, much better than I was guessing it would be.
