ben4321 (3916) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - NOV 13, 2009
Location: 12 oz bottle from Gillyís, 11/13/09

Aroma: Nose is very much chocolate, roasted malts, smokey malts, and licorice
Appearance: It pours a cloudy brown with a thin head
Flavor: The taste is quite smokey, chocolate, with a nice malty flavor
Palate: This beer has a pretty full body with a nice smooth mouthfeel
Overall Impression: This is a pretty good brew. I got quite a nice mix of flavors in this one. I got the experience that one might hope for from a nice winter style Porter. Iím not sure what Iím missing, but I liked this one a lot. It really is quite a solid beer, or at least, it is up my ally.

GT2 (8435) - San Diego County, California, USA - NOV 12, 2009
On tap at Rams Head Tavern in Annapolis, MD. Pours a deep ruby with a thin, nitro looking tan head that has okay retention (mostly a bartender failure). Leaves no lacing. Aroma is rich cherry, oak, roast, burnt sugar. Taste is roasted malt, semisweet chocolate, black cherries. Was served WAY TOO COLD to really get a great feel for this beer. Why is a winter warmer let alone a porter served at such temperatures?

Elwood (3176) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - NOV 11, 2009
Serving: 12 oz. bottle. Appearance: Very dark brown with the slightest of ruby highlights. Not much of a head, but I will fault the guy who served me on that one. Aroma: Roasted malt, some smoke, and slight burnt notes. Flavor: Dark caramel, burnt notes, and roasted malt. The balance between the caramel and the roasted malt just never seemed quite there for me. A little on the thin side as well. Palate: Medium-low carbonation with a medium, slightly thin mouthfeel and a medium, roasty finish. Overall: This one left me wanting more out of it. I think there is good potential here, but this one falls a bit short. Take it or leave it.

Cybercat (3316) - Georgia, USA - NOV 8, 2009
Pours an opaque dark chocolate brown with a thick tan head. Rich aroma is chocolaty with smoky, nutty and coffee hints. Flavor is like a fine chilled mocha, mainly of chocolate and coffee with smoky, nutty and molasses touches. Texture is smooth, fizzy and lively - a winner.

12 oz bottle thanks to Kryptic, thanks a ton I love Baltic Porters. Pours a dark brown color with a medium white head that goes down pretty quick. The aroma is rich malts, some smoke and lots of burnt caramel and light fruits. A slightly smoky and meaty flavor, rich roasted malts, light fruit and metallic flavors. Very easy to drink and quite tasty. Perhaps itís the Rye, but it feels like a meal in a bottle. I wish I could get this locally.

BottleÖ Pours clear and extremely dark - burnt orange when held up to bright light - with a quickly dissipating head. The chocolaty, toasty, earthy nose provides additional, inviting notes of vanilla, toffee and a whisper of worn leather. Full-bodied with a milky mouthfeel and prickly carbonation. The sweet, chocolaty flavor is a touch vinous and hints at mild acidity. Lots of nice deeply roasted essences. Crisp, pleasantly sweet finish. Big thanks to Immy for shipping the bottle my way!
