Can shared by Dr Silverworm. Poured clear dark brown color with an average frothy tan head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate toasted malt and earthy aroma. Medium body with a dry smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium dark sweet flavor with medium dark sweet finish of moderate duration. Solid complex beer.

BMan1113VR (7863) - Los Angeles, California, USA - APR 30, 2012
On tap at both BTBF and a few samples at Deep Ellum. Started off great, but the more samples (2 or 3) I drank at the after party, the more I wanted to get the Rye Pils or IPA instead. Pours with a near black, chocolate looking body with a tan head that lasts. Aromas are of chocolate, vanilla, cocoa, cola, molasses, chewy, earthy, light dark fruits. Flavors are of licorice, leather, earthy, currants, light chlorine. Medium bodied, mildly boozy.

UPDATED: DEC 27, 2013 Baltic Porter, eh? This really comes across as an "Imperial Brown Ale", so I was curious to see what the style was. I had a draft sample at Schlafly’s Repeal of Prohibition Festival, 2012. Pours a cloudy brown color with a small beige head. Huge, toasty aroma with nuts, brown sugar, bark, dark and dried fruits, and chocolate. The flavor is equally toasty and robust, with chocolate, toast, brown sugar, wood, earth, and dried fruits. Medium-bodied, toasty as can be, with moderate carbonation. Re-Rate: Can shared by DrSilverworm- thanks again, Chris! Nuts, toast, leaves, oats, peanut brittle, and chocolate malt. The aroma is sweeter than the flavor. This is not bad, but not nearly as good as I remember.

12oz can, thanks to DanielCoor. Shared with local raters. Dark brown color. Thin tan head. Good dots of lace. Bigger body. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation, lightly dry finish. Dark chocolate, oats, light metallic. Toasty. Nice big bitterness, minimal sweet, mostly all bitter. Lots of nice dark cocoa, especially in the aftertaste. Gets more enjoyable as I go. Nice complex, kind of chewy "stout porter"

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 30, 2013
Bottle:   Super deep brown, moderate frothy light beige head, spotty lacing.   Sweet roasted malt nose, seems like a milk stout.   A bit more robust on the tongue, almost an acrid roastiness, minor sweetness, a bit of cocoa and hops.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Backside shows some youthfull porterness, a little green.   Some dark chocolate, pith, and green hops.   Seems like a mild to moderate Baltic Porter.   Overall decent, clean, but without the heavy dark pitted fruit or roasted characters I expect for the style.   Still enjoyable tho!

Can. Pours a jet black color with a medium silky brown head. A smooth nose with light roast, chocolates, some metal. The flavor is rich, smooth and tasty: dark fruit, metal, dry oats and certainly spicy robust rye shine here. Comes across like a earthy big oatmeal and spicy brew. Very good. Not a Baltic in flavor, more of a straight porter or even FES.
