From notes. Tasted on 6/30/12 at the 1st Annual Chimipalooza, from a 750mL bottle, thanks to rustyham for sharing. Pours opaque cola brown witn an average tan head that leaves an average collar of lace. The nose is dark chocolate, molasses, and vanilla, with a touch of roasted bitterness. The flavor is very dry with the dark chocolate, molasses, and roasted bitterness, and just a hint of vanilla on the back of the palate. The body is full with just under average carbonation and a long lightly bitter dark chocolate finish.

sudomorph (697) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 21, 2014
Feb 2012, 1 pint 9.4oz bottle. Pours a super dark ruby with a tan, ring head. Aroma has a big licorice, hints of roast, dark fruits, spice, and a sweetness. Taste is balanced but a touch tart. Roasty dark chocolate with mild dark fruits, and spice. Medium-full body with a medium carbonation. Smooth and clean mouth feel with a soft carbonation and a mild, dry aftertaste. Overall interesting. Dark fruits, licorice, roasted malts, dark chocolate. Pretty nice.

Theydon_Bois (9729) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - MAR 5, 2014
Bottle, split at the Cask with Bruce and Josh, 26/02/14 Josh farwell beer I guess! Mid black with a good sized tan covering. Nose is tangy dark fruit, chocolate dipped cherries, roasty, dark chocolate, tarte berry tang. Taste comprises Black Forest Gateux, molasses, lick of booze, dark toffee fudge, dark chocolate tones. Medium + bodiment, fine carbonation, light boozey tease in the close. Solid tangy fruit Baltic affair.

maneliquor (3210) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - FEB 26, 2014
Bottle at Cask cheers to Colin for this beaut! Pours black with a dense tan head which slowly disappears. Nose is very tarty and full of ripe berries - big raspberry, blueberry, nice dark chocolate with liquorice and ripe plum. Taste is very much tarty raspberry and black currant, milk chocolate, a little robust roast but nothing over the top. The tartiness is the showcase here and the big back bone this beer has really gives it balance. Not exactly a ’Baltic’ porter but a damn good imperial porter either way. Very tasty

nuplastikk (4673) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 11, 2013
750ml shared at Levi’s house. Brown-black body, beige head. Odd sour raisin tinged aroma, big prune notes. Fruity oddness, certainly doesn’t capture the style. Tobacco tinged. Grows on you, but the grape, prune, raisin aromas are odd. Imperfect, oily dark ale.

boFNjackson (4162) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 24, 2013
Bottle @ a recent bottle share... Poured dark, dark near black with an easy forming, light khaki head. Good Baltic Porter with dark grains, toasted sweetness, some roast and light fruits. Ale esters were minute with an easy drinking mouthfeel. Hints of tobacco and dark fruits for complexity.

Bottle. Pours a deep dark blackish brown with a creamy tan head. Aroma was roasty with chocolate, coffee, a hint of smoke and a touch of fruit. Flavor of dark roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, vanilla, caramel and some dried fruit. Palate was medium to full bodied with a smooth texture and had average carbonation
