solidfunk (7351) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - AUG 6, 2013
A little syrupy. Not exactly what I like in a Baltic Porter. Pours dark clear brown with a little initial lacing and head. Finishes a little sweet. Taste is generally sweet, with some light roast malt here. Tap at brewpub on Montreal opening.

Marheb (4759) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 5, 2013
Un cocktail savoureux et riche d’espresso, mélasse, coco, fudge et caramel dans un corps onctueux et légèrement carbonaté.

From the bottle poured a brown brew with a light white head. Aroma and flavors of malt and hops leaning more towards the malt.

Bottle @ RG 20. Brown with little head. Smells like grass, cherries, coffee and lemon. Light roasty and dry flavor.

Kinz (3737) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - JUN 9, 2013
Richmond 20th. Dark brown, but clear. Little head. Aroma is lightly chocolate, a touch tart. Flavor is quite nice, lots of chocolate, some dark fruit. Pretty good.

Drake (11576) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 9, 2013
750 mL bottle shared by Kinz at the 20th Richmond Gathering. Thanks! Pours a dark reddish brown color with a thin tan head. Fair head retention. Aroma of dry roast, nuts, mild tart fruity notes. The taste is chocolate, nutty notes, sweet malts, herbal hops. Medium bodied. Nice.

Lukaduke (2979) - Gray, Maine, USA - JUN 2, 2013
Draft at Pro Pig. Pours a deep brown umber color with a finger of khaki foam. Lots of roasty malts and burnt chocolate. Sweet molasses, caramel, fig and a pretty thin body. Decent but nothing to special.

dandeman (809) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 25, 2013
Aroma: Chocolate, roasted, nuts and coffee but on a very weak intensity. Appearance: Intense black with a café-creme head, average thickness, dense, with a very nice lacing. Taste: Attack is sweet with notes of milk chocolate, caramel, malted milk and honey. It is surprising how the roasted accents are not sticking out and by the same fact leaving a very weak roasted bitterness. Everything happens in sugars. Almost no wood, roast and smoke accents. Deceiving a bit.

PhillyCraft (5585) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 24, 2013
Sample from bill at Prohibition Pig, dark pour with creamy head. Notes are a little thin compared to the bourbon barrel version I had a month ago but not bad. Notes of smoke, roasty malt or grain, dark fruit, sweet figs, and some rust in the finish. Not bad.
