Sammy (8660) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 30, 2012
Bottle from recent Maine trip. Not totally the style. Black and lacey. Licorice,nuts, yeasty fruit, coffee. Finishes like a Baltic but way too sweet until then.A lot of ideas thrown in to the mash. OK drinkability.

j12601 (6603) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUL 15, 2012
Bottle thanks to Paul at a tasting at Paul’s. Pours a deep brown to black with a very thin white beige head around the edges. A touch of smoke and chocolate and a bit of dry cocoa. Medium bodied, sweet and chocolaty, cocoa, chocolate, warm alcohol, roast. Warming alcohol into a long bitterness on the finish. Nice stuff.

Radek Kliber (6470) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - SEP 17, 2012
Bottle 500 ? ml
Aroma quiet fruity front for lagered Baltic porter. Mid accented by hop sided with sweetness. Lighter darker touched followed.
Appearance dark brown with touch of black. Lighter beige cap. 4-
Flavor and Palate : medium bodied. Smoky with rather strong acidic coffee hints. Finish is more like you would expect from such beer but front ….forget it. Fruity with plum blended with alcohol finishing.

kramer (4993) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 8, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear dark brown body with a small fizzy light brown head that faded rather quickly. The nose is malty and sweet with a heavy licorice presence. A slight bit of burnt rubber under the licorice, but it seems pretty minimal. The flavor is a little off though, it has a slight sour twang to the finish that indicates that there may be a slight infection in here. It’s not bad enough to ruin the whole experience, but it certainly taints it. Still some decent chocolate, roast, and licorice in here with some minimal alcohol. The body is a bit thinned out and extra fizzy from the slight infection. Some QC issues with this one for sure.

markwise (4467) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - OCT 5, 2012
Thanks to the kind soul who brought this to the recent Tampa Tasting. Pours a hazy baltic porter brown with a white head. Nose is roast, some dark fruit, some yeast, hints of cocoa, and coffee. Flavor is similar with dark fruit, coffee, roast, and lager coming to the front. Light to medium in body and lingering lager and roast in the finish.

Sampled at the 2012 American Craft Beer Festival. Pours dark, and this is very sweet for a beer of this style. Not bad though.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - APR 29, 2012
500ml bottle from Downeast Beverage Co in Portland, ME. Pours a black body with a thin, creamy, brown head that dissipates quickly and leaves a light lacing. Aroma is chocolate, cherry dark fruits, and a light roast. Flavor is similar. Chocolates and a moderate roast with some cherry dark fruits. Finishes dry with a light bitterness and a good amount of chocolates and a moderate roast. Lengthy aftertaste following a smooth, clean, medium body and a medium-light carbonation. Overall, a pretty basic, but decent Baltic Porter. Chocolate, roasts, and some cherry dark fruits is about all that is going on, but this is balanced, clean, and very easy drinking. Nothing special, but enjoyable.

AirForceHops (3200) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 12, 2012
Bottle from Nature’s Way Market. $6.99. Dark, dirt brown color with almost flat carbonation. Nose shows me roasted barley and light chocolate. The major downfall is the real thin body. However, it does have some decent flavors. Roasted grain, barley upfront with light coffee and bitter chocolate in the finish. I don’t pick out the ABV until its real warm. When it was chilled, I couldn’t taste it at all.
