hopdog (9829) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 7, 2006
Bottle. Poured a dark brown with a red tint to it and a smaller sized off white head. Aromas of roast, chocolate, lactose and a strong nuttiness to it. I’ll have to take Eric’s word for it about his Grandmother’s Nuts (maybe it was his Grandpa). Tastes of roast, light cocoa, and a lighter nuttiness to it. Thinner body.

Sammy (9537) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 13, 2007
Coffee aroma, and nuts. Mocha head. Baltic style but really a blackened lager from this part of the world. Black but not opaque, with a good amount of head. Mollasses and suger, some ageing and tad of wood in the taste. A bit sweet, and very smooth.Worth trying.

Rune (9344) - Tromsø, NORWAY - APR 24, 2007
500ml bottle sampled at a drinking session in Tromsø. Opaque dark brown body colour. Off-white head containing lots of bubbles. Aroma has got a dark malty profile. Taste like a kind of mouth-filling chocolate milk shake developing into flavour accents of sweet dark malts. Much too sweet and rather one dimensional for a porter (18.04.2007).

mcberko (9343) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 4, 2011
Sampled from bottle at SIB, pours dark reddish brown with a small ring of beige head. Aroma of sweet liqueur, caramel and toasted malts. Flavour of toasted malts, caramel and slight liqueur qualities on the finish. Nice porter.

crossovert (9205) - Illinois, USA - FEB 9, 2011
This is a super cheap Polish Baltic Porter, but it is actually pretty good. It is sweet with hints of cocoa and dark fruits.

shrubber85 (9004) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - OCT 20, 2007
Bottle. Chocolate covered raisin aroma - light hint of astringency. Opaque black brown color with moderate tan head. Sweet brown sugar, chocolate-coffee malt flavor - just the light hint of astringency and alcohol. Unbelievably well hidden alcohol level - I would have bet that this wasn’t over 5%. An incredibly smooth, easy drinking baltic porter.

JoeMcPhee (9004) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 24, 2009
Deep brown beer. Aroma is sweet, earthy and a little bit boozy There is a bit of soft cocoa and herbal character. Very sweet with caramel and light milk chocolate. Flavour is quite thin though... pretty boozy as well. Not really bad, but not great either.

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - AUG 9, 2006
Bottled – GBBF. A blackish beer with a red hue. The aroma is wonderful with lots of licquorice and caramel as well as alcohol and soy sauce. The taste is full and has all the characteristics of the aroma beautifully balanced. Very very drinkable and tasty. Truly delicious and my beer of the Festival.

UPDATED: DEC 18, 2007 First rating
Bottle from Swedish "Systembolaget" in July 2005.
Ordered it to my local store for fun, thought it was gonna taste pretty awful. I was in for quite a surprise though, since I really liked this beer! My first thought was "can a porter taste like this?" Very dark/black color. Mix of sweet and a bit alcohol. Well balanced thugh and something I’ll enjoy drinking again. Only "bad" thing is that the label looks very cheap.
8/4/7/4/15=3.8

Second rating
(50 cl bottle from Systembolaget)
Probably one of the last they had before they replaced it with the 7.0% ABV version.
Clear dark deep red color, tan head that is fast dissapearing. Buttery, sweet, alcohol and acidic scent. Buttery, alcohol. metallic and coffee taste. Smooth big mouthfeel, medium well balanced bitterness. Medium to low co2. Slight roasted aftertaste.
7/3/8/4/15=3.7

Pours black with thin off white head. $1.99 for a 500 ml, so overall this was a nice surprise. Aroma had notes of chocolate, some dark fruit, and a touch of coffee. Taste is some cocoa, dark fruit, some slight vinegar, and a slight sweet toffee notes. Good stuff!
