Lots of oatiness in the nose meld well with hints of dark chocolate, charred toffee and smoked peat. The body is heavy, creamy and real enjoyable. Sweet chocolate, vanilla and roasted malts balance each other, making this quite drinkable. No sign of the 10% ABV, which is kind of scary.

Dark fudgy brown with a crimson glow at the bottom. A small, big bubbly cap of tanned foam barely surfaces over the edge. Sporatic lacing in spots and tiny strings. Aroma is dark and malty rich with a very assuming forward presense of molasses with favorable hints to dark fruits adding raisin, fig, and dates to the mix with a light coating of soured milk chocolate. Taste shadows a nice reflection cast by the aroma with largely dark malt richness of molasses and the dark fruity stuff of raisins, dates, and figs. A bit thin in the middle. Finishes well with a brown sugar spiced alcoholic warmth with a smooth, slick little coating of tootsie roll chocolate. Semi tangy and darkly sweet for most of its ride until the finish were it turns to a nice chocolate candy thickness. Medium thinned body with a subdued richness to it and silky slick and smoothly textured with very low carbonation. As it should be for a Baltic Porter. A pretty solid brew and recommended.

harrisoni (13894) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2006
Bottle at GBBF 2006. I hadnít realised the strength of this. Very deep ruby colour with some nice raisins and a bit of caramel. Bit milky. Amazing dark dried fruit in the mouth. Prunes, raisins, currants. Smooth and rather lovely. Some burntness. Rich. Like Christmas cake.

hopscotch (9256) - 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!

DTM (798) - Winters, California, USA - SEP 29, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 3, 2008 Pours a very dark black with a moderate tan head. Very smooth with a rich chocolate taste. Sweet with a light carbonation. All in all one of the best beers Iíve ever had.

Best bang for the buck! Got 1/2 liter for $2 (in a stagflation economy mind you). Smells a little like funky fish (but in a good way)? But when you taste it you will be pleasantly surprised by the coffee, brown sugar, raisins and malt flavors. Everything a Baltic Porter should be, love it or hate it brahsky! Iím stocking up!

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.

Ibrew2or3 (6998) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - SEP 25, 2008
Pours deep garnet with semi big bubbled tan head. The aroma has notes of dark fruity esters like prunes, figs and dates as well as licorice, burnt malts, some notes of earthiness and a faint hotness on the nostrils. The taste is nice with bold yet even with approachably smooth earthiness mixing with chocolate and burnt malts. Those flavors are followed by an under current of dark fruity esters that tie the taste together nicely. It ends with residual dark fruitiness but mostly roasty malts and fading earthiness. Very pleasing combination of notes creating a very tasty brew.
