Wulfstan (509) - California, USA - OCT 5, 2009
This Baltic poter is outstanding, with rich, complex flavour and texture, yet high drinkability. Basically black, it has a very large, rich, frothy light brown head that shrinks only slowly to a permanent, thin, foamy top and rich, frothy lace. The aroma is mild wine, chocolate, prunes, toast. Although with firm, complex elements, it’s somewhat subdued. The taste is rich, complex, smooth and clean. All flavours, sweetness and bitterness are beautifully balanced with complex taste of leaves, chocolate, dark toasted brown bread, prunes, a hint of port, some raisin, black pepper, the latter stronger in the finish, with an increasing taste of black coffee condensed with brown sugar that is stronger by the end. It is rather dry throughout, not too bitter or sweet. In the middle, it has a definite but light sweetness and light but slightly stronger bitterness right at the finish, but for most of the time, up front and in the final finish and aftertaste, it is mostly dry, clean, and leafy.

Linkiewitz (98) - Warsaw, POLAND - SEP 19, 2016
Aromat: Nuty palone, można pokusić się o stwierdzenie, że wręcz wędzone. Aczkolwiek nie jest to bardzo wyraźne odczucie. Wygląd: Czarne, z drobną pianą. Smak: Pierwszą rzeczą jaką możemy odczuć jest wysoka paloność i idące z nimi w parze nuty owocowe, nawiasem mówiąc dość subtelne. Goryczka jest analogiczna do wyżej opisanych odczuć. Ogółem, największymi mankamentami tego piwa sa jego jednowymiarowość, brak ciała i spora wodnistość, co sprawia, że piwo sprawia wrażenie trywialnego, przeciętnego przedstawiciela stylu.

Villyzzz (44) - Espoo, FINLAND - SEP 8, 2016
Bottle at pub. Pours dark brown with light brown head. Aroma is coffee and chocolate with malts. Taste is really roasted almost smoky. Hints of tar and cocoa in the flavor. This beer hides the 7.2 ABV really well. Palate is quite slick considering beers strong flavours. Surprisingly nice baltic porter, will drink again.

Bottle @ White Terror or Northern Alliance against the Bolsheviks, Sønderborg. Pours cloudy very dark brown with stable tan head. Clear aroma of malt, with notes of fruit, coffee and vanilla and touches of yeast. Bitter, roasty taste with notes of coffee and malt and touches of hops and barrel. Roasty and coffeelike aftertaste. Good.

Bottle from Euroswap by rosenbergh, thanks a lot! Black color with tan head. Aroma is milk chocolate, some bottom fermenting yeasts, nutty, ashes. Taste is chocolate, molasses, more nuts and ashes, slight bitterness in the back. Rather light-bodied but still rich, and easily drinkable. Ticklish carbonation. Good Baltic Porter!
