Terminus (3146) - 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.

Nothing astonishing here. At %9.4 it gets the job done and is affordable, but, despite being fairly rich, doesnt have much character.

Thanks to Steve on this one. This baltic was pretty much unlike any other beer I have had, and there may have been something wrong wiht it, but it was very hard to describe. Pours a nice deep dark brown with amber highlights and a thin head . Aroma has a slight wierd roasted nut character to it, some solvent, rubber, light bandaid and some chocolate malt. Flavor is oily, lightly sweet, more wierd rubber/ roasted nuts and a wierd bitter finish. Finish was a bit harsh but overall just wierd.

Marsiblursi (2983) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 1, 2006
(Bottle at home) Pours dark brown to red. Small, fast decreasing light brown head. Smells chocolate. Creamy, malty and some sugar. Taste: chocolate with some milky coffee. Really well hidden alcohol. Malty. Some peppery notes, meybee from the alcohol. Very mild beer. To stale aftertaste. Lingering malty aftertaste. Not too complex. Small to medium body.

OleR (4597) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 31, 2007
500 ml bottle (bb 04.02.07). Tiny, short-lived espresso head. Clear transparent, not black, but very dark brown body, with a glimse of ruby. Sweet fruity aroma (canned fruitcocktail), sugar, coffee, sweet dark malt and alcohol. Very sweet-flavored, almost cloying, with roast and chocolate. Medium body, minimal hopbitterness, sticky mouthfeel. Sweetness all the way through the finish. Fair.

bhensonb (10343) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 10, 2007
Aroma of toasted dark malt. Nearly opaque dark brown color with a tan head that is substantial. A bit thin in body. Starts with coffee, followed by toffee. Definite toffee candy sweet. The finish is not dry, and the toffee flavor persists. Interesting, but something of a one note. Not that there might not be hidden complexity, just not obvious to me.

Bottle from BierKonig. Chestnut colored. Tannish head. Sugar and molasses aroma. Flavor is rich and malty but an overwhelming sugar presence throws this off. Syrupy and bordering on sickly sweet.

badgerben (4362) - 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.

Ernest (6031) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 24, 2006
Head is initially small, frothy, light brown, fully diminishing. Body is dark brown. Aroma is moderately malty (molasses, cereal, roasted grain), with light notes of prune and alcohol. Flavor is heavily sweet. Finish is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Medium to full body, syrupy texture, soft/lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Pleasant but simple aroma, just too darned sweet to drink.

voota (765) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - NOV 9, 2006
Pours jet black with a creamy brown head, good lace and retention. Aroma of coffee, chip fat and cheap scotch. The beer is very smooth in the mouth until some funny flavours come through... it took me a while to put my finger on it, but there was definitely phenolic flavours of Salicylic acid, other than that there is some weak roast malt and raw alcohol. Finish is slightly phenolic and alcoholic, pretty ordinary.
