dmac (4045) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - FEB 28, 2009
Bottle from Stateline. Pours a chestnut brown with a thin lacing of light beige head. Roasty aroma with lots of chocolate nutts and some cereal. Medium bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and average carbonation. Roasted chocolate flavor with some nutts and breads. Very nice and very under rated.

pauljackson1 (25) - Fairfax Station, Virginia, USA - FEB 16, 2009
One of dominions best. A perfectly balanced porter - malty sweet, with roasted flavors and aromas, and nicely balanced alcohol.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - FEB 15, 2009
12oz bottle from Chevy Chase Wines & Spirits, D.C. Interesting aroma, kind of a mix between a mid-tier roasted porter (a la Troegs) and a modest Baltic, with only mild lactic qualities and a fairly medium mouthfeel. Interesting and moderately well done.

badgerben (4405) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - JAN 30, 2009
MN Ratebeer Winter Gathering, January 10, 2009. Courtesy of MilkmanDan. Dark brown color with a thin head. Strong grain aroma, finishing up with some light roasted barley. Grainy flavor with a little chocolate malt. It’s held up surprisingly well.

MaltDawg (1344) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 28, 2009
(Sample Date: 11/23/2008 Source:Other) 12 oz bottle 11/23 while brewing. Bottled 11/12 - that is a fresh beer. Carmel and hefty grain character in the aroma with a hint of some chocolate and coffee. Clear dark brown with slight amber highlights. Medium to full body and mouthfeel. Quite creamy texture. Caramel and molasses notes in flavor along with some chocolate and coffee. Finish is sweet with medium bitterness and low hop flavor. Doesn’t have the lager character expected - more like an ale.

DukeBrewDevil (732) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JAN 27, 2009
Bottle. Dark brown color with a medium head. A lot of roast and sweetness on the nose. There are flavors of brown sugar, caramel, and a little sour yeast on the finish. For a porter, it’s not overly well balanced, but fairly full flavored. For a Baltic porter...it really doesn’t measure up. This one isn’t a bad beer, but it sure is a bad representation of the style.

Butters (3778) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 26, 2009
Shared Bottle at Tronraner’s Xmas Eve^3 tasting. Pours brown with thin white head. Nose is very vegetal which turns into a vegetal nuttiness in the flavor. Light toast and butter. Not wholey unpleasant, but not a very good baltic porter either.

12oz. Bottle: Aroma of chocolate, roasted malts, slight nuts, and cocoa. Poured dark brown/mahogany/ruby in color with a large, dense, creamy, tan head that diminished but lasted throughout. Clear. Not sparkling. Good lacing. Flavor is light to medium sweet and lightly bitter. Tastes of chocolate, malts, roasting, Hershey’s Syrup, light rye, slight smoke, slight tobacco, light chalk, and light caramel. Full body. Thick, viscous, sticky texture. Average carbonation.
