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 didnít disappoint. Another good beer from North Carolina.

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.

22oz. bomber, with thanks to StFun for the great Wants List bonus! Pours a dark cola brown with a large tan head. Aroma is toasted malts, a little smoke, some chocolate, and earthy hops.

Bitter roast y and hoppy with a hint of minerals. Sweet initially quickly followed up with a smoked and roast y body. Finishes with a hint of warmth and char. Nice Beer!

emacgee (4404) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - DEC 1, 2010
Pours an opaque black allowing hints of copper light and producing one finger of creamy tan head. Nose is rich with bakers chocolate and black cherry skins, notes of caramel and leather with a hint of fruit. Flavor is dark and smooth with a present but not overwhelming roast followed by bakers chocolate and coffee with ephemeral hints of fruit. Full bodied with a velvety palate.

punkrkr27 (903) - Berkley, Michigan, USA - NOV 29, 2010
Black/brown pour with a small, frothy, tan head. Heavy roast on the aroma with notes of cocoa, brown sugar, and a little bit of boozy dark fruit. The flavor is also very roasty with notes of cocoa, roasted nuts, coffee, alcohol and slight smoke. Velvety, medium body with soft carbonation.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - NOV 27, 2010
Bomber from Samís, Durham. Nice event for a nice beer. Deep dark brown pour, with a modest film of carbonation. Thick, oily body, with a slight copper tinge barely detectable. Looks hefty like a milkshake. Really smooth sipper with a hint of a chalky finish. Flavors are very nice, with a less overtly lactic thing happening than its in-state cousin DR. Tons of chocolate and cream, but with notable additions of roasts, anise, and burnt caramel. Very tasty stuff, vying for the in-state crown.
