Bottle. Pours a crimson tinged black with a thin to medium dense tanned mocha head. Roast and coffee on the nose, picking up a faint caramel note as it warms. Medium bodied, roast and malt, a little vanilla. Missing the dark fruit Iíd expect from a Baltic porter. Still a decent beer though.

HighGravity (926) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JAN 9, 2010
(Bottled sometime in October) This beer reminds me of a higher gravity version of the Polish Porter that ODBC brewed several years ago during its Ashburn, VA heydays. It is smooth well rounded with dry notes of coffee and milk chocolate.

12oz twist-off bottle. Black pour, off-white head. Aroma of coffee, nuts, toast, chocolate, and some wood, licorice, and molasses. Light refreshing texture. Flavor of burnt grains, lots of chocolate malt, very chewy with a touch of pepper on the tongue. Lots of toasted malts, very pleasant on a cold winter day.

(12 ounce bottle - pint glass) Pours an opaque brown liquid with a light tan head. Aroma is chocolatey, woody, vanilla, coffee and maybe licorice. Taste is a roasted malt, the malt also has a little bit of rye in it which does alot for this beer. Spruce hops, notes of chocolate, smoke, coffee, wood and vanilla. NOTE: this beer is not 7% ABV it is 6.8%

The 12 oz. bottle produced an impenetrable mahogany-colored lager with nice dark tan head. There was little head retention and little lacing. Aroma is all toasted malt and light smoke. Palate entry is lightly sweet, with the advertised chocolate, anise and caramel notes rounding out the introduction. A well-designed hop balance finishes the beer and leaves a pleasant and lasting zest. The ABV is 6.8 (not the 7.0 noted by Rate Beer), and is well concealed. A very good, mainstream commercial interpretation of the style.

Bottle courtesy of BeerBelcher. Dark brown pour with a red tint and a medium beige head. Malty and roasty nose with some chocolate, but is obviously true to style because it smells like a lager as well. Caramel malt flavor with some chocolate and a nice roasty character. Very nice representation of the style as it is definitely a lager, but fuller and more roasty than some of the other BPs Iíve had.

Had this at the holiday party at the childrens museum. This beer almost made that nightmare worth it. Dark pour with a thick tan head. Roast, chocolate and light coffee. Creamy mouthfeel. Flavor follows suit. Finishís dry and roasty

12oz bottle. the baltic porter pours a near black with ruby highlights under a small tan head. aroma is a blend of smokey, toasted malts, and unsweetened coffee. the flavor is more burnt caramel than anything with toasted malt. i think i notice the rye a bit. puffed rice? anyway..the palate is medium to light. this beer has a nice flavor but donít expect anything "big" here. a great baltic session sums it up.

ChainGangGuy (4691) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - DEC 1, 2009
12 ounce bottle - $1.49 at Hop City in Atlanta, Georgia. Bottling Date: 10/20/09. Appearance: Pours out a tremendously dark brown body with well-sized, foamy, light beige head. Smell: Dark, roasty malts with a thin whiff of smoke. Black licorice, coffee, dark fruits, and far lesser note of chocolate are also on hand this evening. Taste: Flavorful dark maltiness touched up with a pop of roast and tastes of licorice, chilled espresso, and dark chocolate powder with a restrained level of sweetness. Small bit of spice in there. Smoked, candied prunes for some background fruitiness. No big hop profile leaping out at me (not that I was ever expecting one), with any available bitterness coming from those darkened grains. As it begins to warm, a toasty quality slides into place as well. Finishes with just light, final touches of sweetness, roastiness, and fruitiness. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Pleasantly smooth mouthfeel. Drinkability: Surprisingly, itís not half bad! That recent Beach House whatever was a complete dud for me, and their Oktoberfest was so-so, so I was a little hesitant in regards to this winter seasonal, but here I am, enjoying this bottle while watching Blade Runner. Itís smooth and easily drinkable with a nice dark maltiness, like a poor manís Kalamazoo Stout.
