Pours a very dark brown/near black with beige head and little lacing. Aroma is roasty, frutiy, smoky, littl vanilla. Taste is very fruity, dired berries, smoke, roasted, vanilla. Medium to full body and medium carbonation. Good drinkability for a 9% beer. Not too sweet.

oops (208) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 4, 2013
Bottle from Craft Beer Co. Brighton. Had to buy it as it is named after our national hero and made in USA ;) Black in colour with a medium head. In aroma the overburned toast with the hints of coffee. Sour-sweet taste witi minimal bitterness in aftertaste. Itís a beer that you would like to drink sitting before fireplace at a cold and dark winter.

Glouglouburp (5992) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 20, 2013
In short: A fruity roasted black beer with a few. Good but with some flaws.
How: Tap at Reservoir, Waterbury VT.
The look: Black body topped by a very small beige head.
In long: Nose is basic roast (burnt toasts) with light notes of cocoa. Taste is malted-forward without feeling heavy, medium-roast, lots of ink, cacao powder, prunes and other dark fruits with a pleasant refreshing character, a light awkward sourness in the fruity flavors, coca-cola, wet leather sensation, earthy hops. A bit of ashes/charcoal in the comeback. Doesnít feel very sweet (surprising for a CCB black beer). Thick juicy mouthfeel with medium carbonation. The ink flavour and weird fruity sourness bought down my score. Decent beer but not without problems, and this is a rare CCB big black beer that doesnít go over-the-top so its problems cannot be hidden behind the usual mountain of sugars and booze. Yet another underrated CCB beer, most of the beers from this brewery are so underrated, Iím being sarcastic in case you cannot tell, some people donít seem to understand when Iím being sarcastic and when Iím serious, these people are obviously very intelligent.

BOLTZ7555 (2780) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - APR 30, 2013
Bottle acquired via trade with Homer321! Big, beautiful beer! Ebony and onyx in color with a frothy mahogany crown. Rich, fudgy flavor that shows Ghirardelli, Godiva, and Lindt notes. Brownie batter, raisin, fig, molasses, vanilla, oak, and gooey caramel. Extremely dark and decadent. Creamy and coating on the palate. The alcohol isnt at all distracting. A great addition for batch 1,000!

madvike (2695) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - APR 24, 2013
Bottle - Pours dark brown with a soapy tan head. Nose is weird and sour with some booze, and some dark fruit. Feels infected--tastes like prunes, raisins, sour grossness, and a bit of a bitter finish. Thin, well-carbonated and soft in the mouth. This is not good.

sloshgator (413) - Orlando, Florida, USA - APR 17, 2013
Cigar City Kalevipoeg Baltic Porter is a big beer that is too big. Nice dark pour with a decent head. Aroma is roasty with a hint of chocolate, but faint over all even in a snifter glass. Kalevipoegís taste is where it starts to disappoint; the alcohol presence overpowers the malty, roasty, chocolately, coffee flavors one would be looking for in a porter. You just get the alcohol. Some roasted malt flavor did last on my palate, but on the way home. Kalevipoeg Baltic Porter is average at best, but the flavor just isnít there.

50belair (2212) - Florida, USA - APR 4, 2013
On tap at Dixie. Velvety malt aromas. Creamy, rich, and somewhat sweet with smooth coco flavored dark malts and hints of caramel and toffee. Some earthy wood and coffee undercurrents. Very complex with a good body and carbonation. I am usually not a fan of this style, but Kalevipoeg is an exception....
