surffisher (198) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - MAY 9, 2009
Pours clear dark brown with garnet highlights, and a thin fizzy head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is mostly roasted malt, with some light expresso, lactose and milk chocolate notes. Flavor features expresso more prominently with a little root beer. Dry throughout. Medium-bodied; a bit thin for the style. Relatively high, prickly carbonation. Overall, a decent baltic porter; really somewhat closer to a robust porter in style.

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - MAY 5, 2009
a hidden treat in a box from zathrus13... clear ruby dark brown pour with a tannish beige head. it’s short lived and quickly fades to a film. aromas of milk chocolate, black raisins, malt powder, lactose, nutty/coffee and a lightly toasted fresh piece of wood mix with a savory/salty/earthy note. i can only guess that that is the lager yeast... sweetness is no issue on the palate unlike many in the style... flavors of chocolate, toasted and caramelized nuts, coffee, molasses (w/o the sweet), ashy charred malt and a touch of cream with a fairly tart finish. the aftertaste is of nutty coffee with some light ash. light to medium bodied with an incredibly soft mouth feel... though it lacks some richness. call this a porter and i’d be all over it... 7/3/7/3/15/3.5

Dominion Winter has a dry, earthy character. Light smoke and dirt. Malt, with lager yeast. A little oxidized perhaps, but still good.

Heathen (1463) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - APR 8, 2009
THOUGHTS: I was really surprised at how good this beer was. And it wasn’t just a great beer, it was a great example of the style. A little light for the style, but nice. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a clear, dark brown that was mahogany red in the light with a very small, off-white head that mostly diminished. The aroma was moderate to heavy grain, roasted and caramel malts. There was some lighter milk chocolate and mild coffee. There was also very light grassy hops. Also Raisin, plum, prune toffee and light alcohol. The initial flavor was sweet and bitter; while the finish was very sweet and a little bitter with and average duration. There was prune, chocolate, roasted malt, and some coffee in the finish. The medium (a little thin for the style) body was oily with fizzy carbonation and a chalky, lightly astringent and lightly alcoholic finish.

Bottle Pours black with a small tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, coffee and some nuttiness. Flavor was roasted malts, rich chocolate, light caramel and some notes of toasted nuts and faint smoke with a medium body and has a malty sweet finish.
