Darwenus (887) - Virginia, USA - SEP 26, 2016
Not the best baltic porter I’ve had (my preference is for Smuttynose’s version of the style), but this is still a pretty good beer. It pours dark brown with a fair amount of head. The aroma is not strong but it’s appetizing. Some anise, a little espresso, a faint bit of citrus. The flavor is coffee and sweet malt on the front, and it closes with some milk chocolate notes and a hint of cherries, kind of a Dr. Pepper thing that I often notice in Baltic porters and bocks. The high ABV is there in the flavor, but it isn’t medicinal or synthetic. In my area this beer is inexpensive, which effects my overall score in a very positive way.

BeerRenter76 (831) - Texas, USA - SEP 13, 2016
Aromas of burnt coffee, and sharp dark chocolate notes. Flavors of burnt coffee, the dark chocolate and some nuttiness round out the taste. A unusual sweet flavor disappeared as it warmed, overall it was a pretty decent porter, and the price was pretty good. Originally rated on 11/25/08.

TEJA (2420) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 11, 2016
Sampled @ omhper, thanks. Bottle sampled 21:st of march 2015, bottle best before 2005. Lasting brown head. Clear dark red brown color. Fruity and madrification in the aroma. Big caramell taste. Low sweetness and a complex taste profile. Big body.

tfontana (695) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 9, 2016
Bottle pour into nonic pint glass from Manchester Wine & Liquors. Appearance is clear mahogany with light sparkle, 2-finger width light brown foamy head with decent retention and sudsy lacing. Aroma is dark chocolate, dark toast, hints of coffee and dark fruit. Taste is dark chocolate, dark fruit, mild European hop bitterness. Palate is full bodied with decadent creamy texture, soft carbonation and dark fruit/dark chocolate finish with late warmth in stomach. Overall, a nice beer that is sweet but not cloying and a silky mouthfeel. Nice.

gripweed57 (1365) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - JUL 29, 2016
500 ml bottle. Dark mahogany brown color. Moderate khaki colored head. Aroma has notes of cola and coffee. Big sweet roasted malt flavor. Notes of coffee and sweet cocoa. Midtaste brings a nutty cocoa melange reminiscent of Nutella. More like a sweet stout. A great value at $2.99 for a 500 ml bottle.

HighlanderOne (1233) - York, SC via NJ, South Carolina, USA - JUL 29, 2016
Poured from bottle. Big aroma of coffee and chocolate malt. Good lookin - nearly stout black with lacing. Tasting huge amounts of mocha and chocolate with a trace of licorice, lactose, banana and a trace of booze and hops. If I didn’t know better I would think this was a sweet stout. Probably too sweet for a porter. But I don’t care - this is a tasty surprise.

Bottle. Hazy rweddish brown with large creamy beige head, mocha and cherry aroma, medium carbonation, sweet mocha taste with hint of forest berries, somewhat thick body, medium bitter coffee beans finish. It tastes a bit like artifiical sweeteners

slowrunner77 (10112) - 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.

Bottle from Kroger. Pours brown with a giant tan head. Smells of coffee. Taste is a lightly smoked coffee, ash, peat. Interesting. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nieco słodkawy. Bardzo miłe aromaty palonych słodów. Na pewno trochę wyżej, niż koncerniaki. Wciąż jednak nie jest to dystyngowany porter.
