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 (3472) - 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]

Big thanks to Exiled for sharing this bottle. This one was on my wants for a long time. The beer pours a dark brown color with a tan head. The aroma is very nice. The dominant flavor is heavy, dark chocolate with some roasted malt and a little bit of sugar or molasses mixed in. The flavor is more of the same. I get a ton of milk chocolate and roasted malt, along with some cream notes. Not really a traditional Baltic Porter flavor profile, but a very enjoyable chocolate-bomb of a beer. Medium to full mouthfeel and medium carbonation. This beer definitely didn’t disappoint. Another good beer from North Carolina.

(22oz bottle, courtesy of Exiled) Pours an opaque black body with a moderate beige head. Aroma of roasted malt, anise, caramel, and chocolate. Flavor of chocolate, roasted malt, anise, dates, and caramel with a dry, chalky finish.

Verecund (82) - North Carolina, USA - DEC 29, 2010
Having had this both from the bottle and on tap, this is sort of an amalgamation of a review, though the notes are from the tap, which I find slightly superior. Pours a true auburn bordering-on-black brown with a half-finger tan head. A somewhat muted bouquet on the nose: some savory (roasted malt, toasted oat), some sweet (milk chocolate, sweet dark fruit). I get a little more complexity from the bottled version in the nose; on tap, it smells like caramelized malts and raisins. Deliciously balanced in the mouth. A dark fruit and chocolate beginning gives way to licorice, some smokiness, roasted malts and coffee. Slightly warming. Velvety; medium-bodied. This is a very nice Baltic Porter, and a wonderful beer.

Bottle courtesy exiled. Pours a clear dark red color with a bubbly tan head. Aroma is roasted coffee, caramel, dark chocolate and heavy malts. Flavor is dry chocolate with heavy roast and dark Malts. Finishes slightly sweet and malty.
