Pours black with a one finger tan head. Aromas of roasted coffee, dark fruit, and banana bread. Creamy and smooth mouthfeel. Tastes of dark fruit, particularly raisins and figs, bittersweet chocolate, and tobacco. Finishes a touch bitter and the carbonation lingers nicely on the tongue.

AdamJackson (2105) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 29, 2012
Cask Brewery Deep dark brown on the pour. Black throughout. 3 finger head leathery. Smell is sort of campfire like with some brown sugar and yeah just a lot of smokiness Taste very sweet up front, followed by a very mellow and smooth toasty character like almonds and pistachios. Semi sweet with a small presence of chocolate Malts. Finish is molasses Very low carbonation being a cask. Heavy body.

12 oz. bottle 2009 vintage: Pours black-reddish with virtually no head. Scent is chocolate, dark wine and booze. Taste is molasses, very darkly fruited.... Extremely sweet with a hint of alcohol bitter.... Smooth, but powerful. A sipper. Marvelous stuff....very good.

Onenote81 (1002) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - APR 25, 2012
Originally reviewed: 5/30/09. Pours a deep dark cola color with about an inch’s worth of head on top. No retention at all, and very little lacing. Smells of roasted coffee, cocoa, nuts, and bread. Mouthfeel was crisp, yet creamy. This was very smooth. I dig it. Flavor was big time cocoa and coffee all melding and jiving together. Great roasty aftertaste. Finishes slightly bitter. Great Baltic Porter! I kept gulping and the ABV hit me a bit. Be careful. Recommend.

Bottle @ Olde Amish Inn, Ronks, Pennsylvania, USA. Clear dark brown to black with a medium off white head. Sweet Aroma of moderate toasted malt and brown sugar and a bit of chocolate. The taste is sweet and slightly bitter after hard roasted malt.

brokensail (9944) - Orange County, California, USA - MAR 31, 2012
Dark brown in color with a short lived off-white head. Nice nose on this. Dark chocolate and fruit give a pleasant balanced sweetness. A bit of roasted malt and a touch of spice. The flavor offers a nice chocolate character and a touch of roast. Dark fruits, especially raisins and plums, and a touch of spice. Just a touch of roast to give some bitterness.
