pintbypint (2884) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 16, 2011
330ml brown bottle. Dark brown pour with deep red highlights. Nice column of beige foam. Lots of lace in the glass. Aroma has cocoa/dark chocolatey malts, some fruitiness, a bit of nut. Malty chocolately flavour, roasted malts, toasted malts, black cherry fruit. Some alcohol in the finish, dryish. Aftertaste has some lingering fruits and chocolate malts. Body is a bit thinner than I had hoped for, decent carbonation. Some nice depth, a solid porter, but not overly baltic as the label suggests.

reebtogi (4754) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 12, 2011
330ml bottle pours almost black with some red highlights when held to a light source. About 2 fingers of mocha colored head which settles slowly revealing some really nice lacing. Aroma is roasted malts with some chocolate and coffee with hints of vanilla and fruit. Taste is roasted malt bitterness with some chocolate and vanilla and dark fruits with very light hop bitterness. A rather enjoyable porter.

imdownthepub (11292) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 8, 2011
Bottled, 330ml from The North Bar, Leeds (Part of the first run batch of this beer). Deep tawny brown with cream head. Rich, fruity beer, plenty of depth with a hint of vanilla, cherries, plums and toasty bread. Some lingering sweetness, smooth on the palate. A very accomplished beer, good stuff.

mkel07 (4256) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - DEC 7, 2011
330ml bottle. Pours somewhat thin but this does not detract from the big black colours and the layer of tan foa. Visually eye catching. Coffee and chocolate aromas with a hint of vanilla. There is a sweetness and a silky mouthfeel and a burnt aftertaste. Just like Alice this one does everything you need it do do and then some.
