chriso (7344) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 1, 2006
Bottle at RBESG Grand Tasting, August 2005. Nearly black, with a ruby tinge. Strong Baltic Porter character, with licorice and tar, some tart fruit and very noticeable volatile alcohol in the aroma. But is shockingly sweet and, coupled with the alcohol burn, this makes for a very odd mouthfeel indeed. Like surgical spirit mixed with cassis and treacle - more like a medicinal tincture than a beer. Rather crude. Not really my thing.

wlajwl (3546) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JUN 2, 2013
Aroma is dark malts and butterscotch/toffee. The flavor is malts butterscotch/toffee (bordering on cloyingly sweet) and a mildly acidic/tart finish.

beerandbeyond (623) - ISRAEL - OCT 24, 2013
12oz bottle poured into a goblet. Clear light brown with red hues and a minimal head. Caramel nose, with brown sugar, earth, dark bread, some dark fruits, cherry stone and faint chocolate. Kvass-like flavor, sweet caramel, some vanilla, lo bitterness and some prunes. Med-full bod, alcohol well hidden, too sweet and not balanced. OK

JFGrind (1808) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 19, 2013
500ml. bottle, some roasted and chocolate malts but really just a porter like alcohol delivery vehicle. Gets the job done, but with a cool name and Americanized label I fear it is overpriced.

ClarkVV (3856) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 5, 2005
2004 bottle shared with bucknaked on 4/30/2005. MIBRomeo is right on, the dark brown body has a shiny copper/penny-colored hue to it. Beige head is quickly receding to ring. Smells of sticky molasses, brown sugar, toffee, very straightforward baltic porter aroma. Would appreciate some lager yeast qualities, but as this is quite filtered and most assuredly pasteurised, I’m not surprised at the cleanliness. Flavor is quite sweet, more molasses, brown sugar and caramel/toffee. Cane sugary finish, maybe a touch of dry anise. Bits of cappucino stick out here and there. Boring, unsubstantial mouthfeel shows the high filtration and forced carbonation. Very sweet, medium body. Hides the alcohol VERY well, I will say that.

Moz (613) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - APR 9, 2007
Bottle. Black colour with a tan head. Sweet, fruity aroma. Flavour is sweet with notes of chocolate, honey & blackcurrant. Too sweet.

Drake (7940) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - NOV 18, 2011
500 mL bottle from Total Wine West Richmond, VA. Pours a near black color with a large fizzy tan head. Decent head retention. Weird tinny hops in the aroma with nutty and chocolate notes. The taste is sweet malts, chocolate, nutty notes, caramel, coffee, anise and a very faint hop presence. Medium bodied, and a bit too sweet, but solid.

Perkeo (322) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 5, 2005
Earthy, sulphury aroma with some plum and blackberry on top of a brownish black syrupy baltic porter with a smallish tan head.Flavor is sweet and coffee-ish with a roasted bordering on burnt caramel aftertaste. Some diacetyl and not really my thang....

Crit (3245) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 24, 2006
Deep brown, generous tan head.Strong metallic nose,not much else. Flavor is sickeningly sweet and sugary,light coffee.The overabundant sweetness makes it seem flat.

Finn (3759) - Tromsø, NORWAY - APR 19, 2007
Bottle 0,5l. Dark red coloured - almost black. A creamy tanned head. Aroma of caramel and chocolate. Flavor and aftertaste of coffee. Far too sweet.
