malty aroma with lots with alcohol smell. pours almost black. flavor is smoky, malty and of alcohol. not a bad porter except for the evident alcohol smell and taste.

johntreeter (126) - Greenwood, Indiana, USA - JUN 17, 2008
16.9oz. bottle. Pours a very deep amber with .5in. short lived tan head that left minimal lacing. Aroma of sweet malt, light milk chocolate notes. Taste is a little sweet for me with flavors of milk chocolate, dark fruits, and cane surgar. Medium to heavy on the body with an almost syrurpy texture and light carbonation. Not bad just too sweet for my taste.

serkoptato (32) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 27, 2008
A porternek aposztrofált serital Guinness-szerűen fekete, meglehetősen tartós habja tejeskávéra emlékeztetően barna, illata határozottan pörkölt-malátás, telt. Íze további meglepetés: telt, markánsan keserű, kávés, talán némi kis csokoládés felhanggal. Utóíze kellemesen hosszan cseng le, tartósan megmaradó keserű komponensek nélkül. Meglepetés e ser nekem, de kellemes.

Weak smell for a porter. Small taste as well, little malts with a fading finish. I need more of a Russian kick.

500 ml. bottle. Pours a thin mocha head, with some lacing, over a dark, slightly reddish (SRM 36) clear body....nose is coffee, chocolate, molasses....taste is sweet malts caramel, toffee, then molasses, finishing with slight roasted bitterness....mouth feel is light and a bit watery, carbonation is medium. This is somewhat lighter in aroma and flavors than expected, and the mouth feel is a little light.

Hopper (827) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - OCT 23, 2009
A black beer with a nice looking head. The aroma was quite mild with a very light roastedness. The taste had some dark fruits, & tasted like Coke with less carbonation. Gotta try more Baltic Porters.

probstblueribbon (2894) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 14, 2009
500 ml bottle in gift pack from LCBO, served at cellar temperature in a snifter glass.

App.: Deep brown-black with a so-so tan head. Aroma: Nice rich sweet chocolate, vanilla, dried fruits, light nuttiness, some coffee, some molasses, some bright berries, a little wood, a light soy sauce/savoury note with a hint of fish (?!), Palate: Medium+ body and virtually no carbonation for a very silky, smooth feel. Flav.: Grape-like fruitiness, a bit stale, many of the inviting aromas don’t come through, some almost-burnt cracker, a bit of leafy hops, a little coffee, some light alcohol; lightly sweet with balancing bitterness and a lightly fruity/malty finish.

The classic bait and switch: the attractive nose lures you in and then leaves you with it’s fat friend.

500 ml bottle from the LCBO. gift pack. pours black with a tan head. very muted aroma of dried fall leaves, cara malt, touch of roast. the flavour is better. the malt body is decent and the hops come in near the finish. a touch thin and a bit tinny (which i hate). not my thing.
