12oz bottle from Chevy Chase in DC. Itís Christmas and my family hates it, but still: tick, tick, tick...on it goes. Dark brown with a one finger tan head and some lacing. The aroma is roast, chocolate, nuts, and caramel. The flavor is mildly sweet with caramel malts, roast, chocolate, earth, and anise. Only a little above average flavorwise. Medium-bodied with average carbonation and moderate smoothness. Decent but not too impressive Baltic porter overall.

BeerandBlues2 (11732) - Escondido, California, USA - NOV 27, 2010
Bottle. Pours clear dark brown with a small, fizzy tan head, short retention with flat lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (cookie, chocolate, caramel, nutty), light hops (woody), and light esters (dried fruit) with notes of dates. Flavor is heavy malt (cookie, chocolate, caramel, nutty), light hops (woody), and light esters (dried fruit) with notes of dates. Medium body and carbonation, low warmth and creaminess with a dry finish. Rather disappointing.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 24, 2010
In short: A sugary generic Baltic porter. Just ok.
How: Bottle 12oz. Consumed about 6 months after receiving it from CaptainCougar, thanks Tom (probably 1 year old or so).
The look: Near black body topped by a medium beige head with good retention
In long: Nose of black coffee and burnt wood. Taste has lots of black liquorice candy, some black coffee, toffee, earth, cigar leaf, dried fruits, figs. Not hops presence at all. Body is a bit slim. After-taste of white sugar. Tasted like a fruit-flavored candy with a sip of black coffee. Nothing bad, nothing really good either. This beers takes the extra out of extraordinary.

A: pours an impenetrable black. Nice medium brown head. Good retention. Great lacing. S: good sweet malts. Great roasted aromas, light toffee and chocolate notes. T: good sweet roasted malt flavors. Chocolate, toffee, and some watered down coffee, unfortunately. M: medium bodied. Mild carbonation level. Very robust, as well as being smooth and creamy.

DocLock (9364) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 7, 2010
Bottle from Caponeís and Wegmanís Collegeville. Pours dark brown, hazy, with off-khaki head. Nose is dark malt, chocoff, brown sugar, hazelnut, toffee. Tastes smooth, rich, very malty, with some dark choc, malt, slight hop, spice, nut, and roasty rauchy notes. Well made and great.

lagermonkey (725) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JUN 6, 2010
Poured 12/2009 Pours black as night with a thin brown head that quickly evaporates to nothing at all. Smells of roasty malt, mixed with dark fruit and a just hint of smoke. No surprises in the mouth as it reflects the nose almost perfectly. Roasty and dark fruit (raisiny) with a fairly chewy body but creamy as well. The roasted malt and fruit mix nicely and the creamy texture makes it go down smooth. The alcohol sneaks up on you a bit since thereís nary a hint of booziness. Creamy, mocha-like finish and a lingering roastiness in the aftertaste. Itís as straightforward as a Baltic Porter can be, balanced the fruitiness and the roastiness well and is smooth as velvet. Whatís not to like? Six years is a long time to wait between samples...but I think they have improved the recipe since then

zdk (1852) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 1, 2010
Bottle at Max and Andyís Fantasy Tasting. - molasses, roasty with some vineous notes. Sweet, prunes and dark fruity. A bit sour at the finish. Tasty, overall

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAY 2, 2010
Bottle at Andy and Maxís fantasy tasting. Pours a nice deep dark charcoal brown near black with a nice lasting tight beige head. Aroma is lightly hopped, a touch of mint and pine over big chocolate malts, smooth nutty sweetness, toast, and light burnt hint with a touch of diacetyl but still good. Flavor is clean, with good chocolate hints, roast, toffee moderate sweetness and a light leathery earthy finish to dry it out some. Solid porter.

ajm (1072) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAY 2, 2010
Bottle bonus from tarheels86. This was pretty good, actually. Nose was kinda subtle with nice mellow milk chocolate and light roast. Flavor is very much the same - not exactly as rough as most really Baltic Baltic Porters Iíve had - roast, chocolate, light licorice, cane sugar.
