Bottle @ Bestway. Pour: Rich brown, tawny appearance. Opaque beauty with thin collar of foam. Aroma: Leathery, cocoa, almost a cigar/tobacco-like aroma. Notes of dark fruit also. Taste: A big porter! Immediate warming from the alcohol. Roasted malt forward brew with a hint of molasses and coffee flavors. Definitely a sipper. A muscular brew. Aggressive mouthfeel. Overall: A freak of a porter, IMHO. Very enjoyable but volatile and potent. After tasting, rating, and finishing this particular bottle, my wife noted that i "smelled like a campfire". Once you imbibe this baltic porter, it literally seeps out of your pores.

Nice beer--- pours black with light showing through. Little head showing up. Tastes of chalk butter and Carmel with a strong bite. Smell is light and not that strong.

An excellent example of a true porter. Plenty of toasty malt flavor and aroma. Dark red in color. No head. Round palate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

browner (41) - Delafield, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 2, 2011
Pours black with a creamy brown head, almost a delicate lace and good retention. Notes of coffee and some malt. For a 9.4% beer is very smooth and enjoyable enough...great value for the dollar..

A true Baltic Porter! Leave it to the motherland guys. Dense, dark brown with a light head. Strong and dense with malty flavors that include hints of chocolate and roasted coffee beans. For being 9.4% ABV, this guy packs it’s punch while maintaining a well-balanced character.

explosivebeer (36) - Washington, USA - JUN 12, 2008
As the name indicates, this beer poured a nice thick black with a thin tan head. There was chocolate, alcohol, and maybe some sour cherries in the aroma, as well as some breadiness as is breathed a bit. The flavor had lots of chocolate and coffee with a slight creaminess. The malt body balanced the alcohol. It finished smooth. This was a great beer for the price ($2.80 for 500ml bottle) and a good beer regardless of price.

Wow. caramel, sweet malt, chocolate, molasses- The high alcohol is completely masked by the sweet satisfying flavor. This is a great drinking porter! Don’t let the price fool you! This is inexpensive excellence. And, a FULL PINT of easy drinking 9.4 ABV for a little over a buck and a half is really a "no-brainer".

A very smooth porter. I enjoyed it very much. The taste isn’t overwhelming, and it has a hint of molasses. Very sweet, highly recommended.

Didn’t care for this at all. Odd flavor, strange finish. I’m chalking up to just not getting the Baltic porter style.
