Emil (6066) - 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.

sayravai (4674) - 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 (20656) - 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 (12544) - 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 (4394) - 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.

   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 13/20
Terminus (3231) - 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

Reid (1876) - Salem, Oregon, USA - JUN 5, 2005
Served in the very attractive monocromatic labelled bottle. For an old UK ska fan this reminds me of the old Two- Tone record labels. In appearance its the typical dark ,dark brown almost black, mahogany of Baltic porters small tan head, that dissapates fast to leave nice lace. the aroma is very dark chocolate ( unsweet), black coffee etc. Taste is certailly Baltic but it is very much on the sweet side, there is the dark roasted coffee flavour but it is interrupted by a fruity, almost raspberry sweetness that bubbles up from under the bitterness. This is not typical but I like the effect. Nice on the palte..the bubbly sweetness makes this intresting. For a 9.4% beer this is dangerously drinkable..alcohol is barely noticed in the taste.

heemer77 (5099) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - JUN 2, 2005
Dark black body with a little bit of ruby highlights showing through. The large tan head is persistent. The aroma is rich roasted coffee with some molasses. The taste has a little bit of lactic creaminess. There is also a little coffee and some rich chocolate in the finish. Overall, the taste is sweet. A nice brew with a slightly thin body.

brownaler (378) - Topsail Beach, North Carolina, USA - JUN 2, 2005
Burnt malt aroma with a jet black appearence. Has a sour flavor that seems to overpower the chocolate malt leaving an unbalanced palate.
