nimbleprop (4200) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - JAN 26, 2011
22oz bottle pours a watery, nearly opaque black with a thin, creamy, beige head. Sweet aroma, molasses, nuts, toasted bread, malty, Belgian chocolate, some caramel. Flavor is sweet, malty sugar, a little vanilla, toasted bread, brownie batter, caramel frosting, licorice, a little dark fruit and some dried fruit. Sounds like it might be cloying, but it isn’t. Finish is full bodied and dry. Very nice.

Aroma: Milk chocolate, brownie, licorice and herbal hops.

Ibrew2or3 (6530) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JAN 23, 2011
Tasted at the big “SeaBass has got to go” tasting courtesy of fishingnet. Pours amber with full tan head. The modest aroma is sweet with some dark fruity esters mixing with caramel as well as sugary malt sweetness and seems to lack earthiness this style typically has. The taste is dark roasted malts, prunes, a bit of fig meat note, chocolate and then a pleasing level of earthiness into the finish. Nice stuff.

ksurkin (1022) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - JAN 14, 2011
22oz bottle as an awesome extra in a recent trade. thanks! pours a dark brown with ruby highlights and a thick, creamy, short-live beige head leaving nice rings of lace. aroma is great with bold, roasted malts, dark cereal grains, smoked almonds, and light coffee with hints of dark fruits, earthy hops, a bit of cocoa powder. flavor is delicious as well with dark chocolate, dried cherries, and raisins initially with roasted malts, burnt grain, and smoke at mid palate and finishing with creamy, cold coffee, oats, and a hint of licorice. palate is medium bodied, smoothly carbonated, and leaves a lingering, roasted bitterness on the finish. overall, a great baltic porter.

Bottle thanks to my Secret Santa! Poured near black with a brown head that lasted throughout the beer. Aroma was full of roasted malts with dark grains, chocolate and a hint of slight coffee. Flavor was also full of roasted dark grains with a bit of coffee coming out in the finish.

LilBeerDoctor (3370) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 31, 2010
Bottle. Pours black with a thick light tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, dark lager yeast, light smoke and light chocolate notes. Flavor mostly of sweet malt with a pretty roasty and charred malty finish. Also some burnt caramel and bitter chocolate, especially as the beer warms. A very nice, rich Baltic Porter. Good stuff! 7/4/8/4/16 [3.9/5]
