hopscotch (10076) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 3, 2010
Bottle… Clear, very dark lager with a mid-sized, creamy, khaki head. Good retention. The bouquet offers big-time chocolate and lesser notes of tobacco and cola. Full-bodied and creamy with kicked-back carbonation. The hearty flavor is sweet and chocolaty. Finishes bittersweet (more bitter than sweet). Bottle courtesy of OrlGamecock!

Sammy (9447) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 22, 2011
A tasty though not great porter. Yes, chocolate and sweetness all whipped up, fluffy and granular malted milk mouthfeel. The bitterness is hops and I was Ok with it, although my 23-year old who shared the bottle thought it was a it metallic and not spot on the style.

mcberko (9216) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 13, 2012
22 oz. bottle, sent from Glouglouburp (thanks Dany), pours black with a small beige / tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, chalk, coffee and milk chocolate. Flavour of coffee, milk chocolate, some chalk, and slight sweetness. Pretty full-on with the flavours though still quite thin-bodied as with most porters. Very enjoyable.

22oz bottle, thanks to whomever shared this! Dark brown, near-black color. Thin off-white kind of khaki bubbly head. Dots and bits of lace. Bigger body. Smooth, kind of chewy, lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Great dark chocolate, cocoa nibs. Light to moderate roast, mild coffee. Moderate sweet-plus taste, moderate bitter. A very solid assertive roasty baltic porter.
