Sammy (11074) - 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 (11054) - 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).

kp (10884) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - NOV 7, 2009

Date: September 18, 2009
Mode: Bottle
Source: Bottleworks, Seattle
Appearance: black, frothy beige head
Aroma: sweet chocolate aroma with lots of candy like dark caramel sweetness
Flavor: rich sweet chocolate flavor, lots of candy caramel sweetness, balancing rich chicolate, just a hint of rasted malt
Overall: what is it about Polish porters that do the big sweet chocolate so well?

daknole (10848) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - APR 29, 2012
Very dark brown color, light brown head. Flavor is roasty, some chocolate and espresso notes. Flavor is up front with cocoa, some plums, lots of carbonation here. Ok.

shrubber85 (10578) - 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.

hopscotch (10563) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 15, 2007
Bottle... This beer rocks!... Clear ruby lager with a mid-sized, frothy, khaki head. The aroma is of buttery, chocolate popcorn. Port-like flavor with big notes of coconut and dark fruit; lesser notes of chocolate. Leans just a hair on the sweet side of balance. Medium-bodied and watery with restrained carbonation. Sweet finish. Thanks to degarth for sharing!

Maria (10214) - Thisted, DENMARK - FEB 11, 2007
Black/brown, slightly transparent with a limited head, that leaves a nice lace. The aroma has notes of roasted malt and sweet licorice. The flavour is sweetish with brief sweet coffee notes, then more roasted malt, licorice and the sweet coffee returns in the rather long finish. A bit too sweet for me.... 1871

deyholla (9993) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 24, 2011
Bottle. Pours black with a grayish brown head that dissipated quickly to the edges. Aroma is full of intense aromatic roasted malts with a bit of coffee and a hint of earthiness. Flavor was similar starting full of roasted malts with a bit of creamy coffee and just a tad of chocolate. Finish is a bit thin, but solid overall.

slowrunner77 (9945) - Reno, Nevada, USA - MAR 18, 2016
Less sweet than the other two with more pronounced smoke/ash and nuances of fruit and chocolate. Still not a great example of the style, but better.

DocLock (9876) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 26, 2013
Bottle from Smith’s, taking me back to 6,666 and the service of Satan after I got an e-mail saying Woodchuck Pink was removed. What does Joel have against tits? At any rate, enough controversy and on to the review, which I know you are all waiting for with bated breath. The pour is dark brown through indirect light, and a lovely shade of deep ruby/burgundy through direct light, with a finger of tan head. Nose is roasty choc and black patent malt, cacao, walnut. The nose really pops. Tastes smooth, a bit sweet, with amazingly well hidden alcohol. The flavor is roasty choc malt, blackberry, molasses, backup hops, and some walnut, molasses, and finishing charred notes.
