badgerben (4386) - 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 (3736) - 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.

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 25, 2009
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.

[Bottle] shared by Guerde. Pours a clear caramel with a small tan head. Aroma is some smoke, lager yeast, and caramel. Medium mouthfeel. Caramel and alcohol on the flavor with the finish being the highlight of the beer.

Skyview (5154) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JAN 23, 2009
Sampled during MN Gathering II in Maplewood, MN and shared by MilkmanDan. From 12-oz bottle (2006 vintage) pours a semi-clear brownish amber brew with a thin tan head that quickly dissipates to an off-white ring. Aroma of toasted dark malt, chocolate, a hint of candi sugar, smoked wood and a touch of roasted nuts. Taste is medium to full bodied with flavors of toasted dark malt, some caramel, chocolate and some roasted nuts. Finish semi-dry with a more toasted dark malt with some chocolate aftertaste. Though it is missing some of the high alcohol and candi sugar in flavor it is still a solid baltic porter.

Guerde (1162) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - JAN 18, 2009
(bottle, thanks OSLO!) Pours light brown with a scant tan head. The aroma was pretty subdued, with light roasted malt, faint smoke, and some chocolate. The flavor also was light with some chocolate, smoke, and roasted malt, that yielded to a lingering roasty and salty finish. Mouthfeel was medium and the carbonation was smooth.

Draft at Trappeze. Nice, creamy, and drinkable. Not overdone. Dry, chocolatey finish.

Medium light body with moderate carbonation.
