Lou18 (1353) - West Paterson, New Jersey, USA - JUL 16, 2005
Poured black and fizzy with tan head, huge and fizzy. Sour nose, followed with sweet malts and dark fruits. Bitter flavor, like burnt coffee that sat for days on the burner. Smoothes out though, and in the beginning, there was too much carbonation. There was a ton of milky creaminess, and a very dry finish. This turned out to be a great Baltic.

ThomasE (5176) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 11, 2005
Dark brown colour with a small light brown head. Light roasted malty aroma with hints of a dark fruit sweetness. Bitter flavor with some dried fruit and a faint alcohol note.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUL 6, 2005
Pours a rich, nearly opaque dark brown with a thick, frothy, and well-lacing light tan head. Has a mildly tart and roasty aroma with some dry caramel, but lacking that dark fruity complexity usually found in Baltic porters. Starts sugary and sweet without much complexity or balance for that matter. Sticky caramel and sugary, mild bitterness and chocolate throughout, leading to a slightly warming finish that hides the alcohol fairly well. This seems like it could use a little brewing finesse to give more complexity and less of a sugar-water character.

Emil (6065) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 16, 2005
Bottle. Almost black colour with a small baige head. Roasted malty chocolate liquorice aroma and a light roasted raisin chocolate coffee taste. Medium body and a light sweet warming finish.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 14/20
sayravai (4673) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 14, 2005
(Bottled) Very dark red, almost black color with a small, dark beige head. Malty, wineous, burned and licoricey aroma with dark chocolate, coal and metal hints. Very roasted-malty, salty and licoricey, sweetish, somehow raw flavor. Medium to full-bodied, sweet and roasty palate with a quite high, fizzy carbonation. An enjoyable porter, but lacks body and sophistication. Hides the high ABV remarkably, though.

joergen (21506) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 12, 2005
Bottled. Dark brown coloured with a small beige head. Aroma of dish washer, liquorice and chocolate. Flavour of dried fruits, chocolate and liquorice. Well hidden alcohol.

TBone (12992) - Pori, FINLAND - JUN 12, 2005
Bottled (BB 10/2005)
Very dark ruby, creamy expresso head. Burnt malt aroma, slightly sugary - a bit similar to Zywiec Porter. Medium-bodied. Cold coffee, salted licorice powder. Soft palate - hides alcohol very well (actually some kick from alcohol would do good), good malty base but hop profile is weak. Far from complex and interesting Zywiec.

badgerben (4502) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - JUN 11, 2005
Dark ruby color with no head. Salty aroma with a hint of bacon. Yeah, tastes pretty much like salted pork as well. Some kind of malt base, but it just tastes like a salt like. Blah.

2.9
   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 13/20
Terminus (3283) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - JUN 10, 2005
bottle-pours a deep red huge with a small fizzy tan head. ozidized aroma with notes of chocolate, sour milk, wet forest and rasin. very burnt flavors to start with a chocolatey finish. 9.4%? are you kidding? This tastes around 5 at the most. alcohol is nowhere to be found for this percentage. this beer suffers from a thin body and too much residual sweetness. not one of the better baltics out there.

robertsreality (2460) - Minnesota, USA - JUN 7, 2005
Dark Red Coloring and Light Tan Frothy Head. Sweet Strong Malt Aroma. Carbonated..Light Coffee..Chocolate and Malt..Watery Towards the End.. Alcohol Not Noticeable for Such a Percentage. An Interesting Porter
