phaleslu (9019) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 2, 2011
Bottle shared by lushawn the night before Dark Lord Day- thanks, Shawn! Pours a deep cola brown color with a big tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, root beer, rust, and dark chocolate. Flavor of sweet and roasted malts, brown sugar, dark chocolate, and earth. Light-medium bodied with surprisingly sharp carbonation and a soda-like mouthfeel. Decent Baltic porter but something seemed off in the way this was carbonated.

DuffMan (9018) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 12, 2014
Bottle, corked & caged, shared with Robbie. Very gassy pour, nearly a gusher, dark brown, massive head. Acetic sourness and dark fruits, light leather. I’m certain this is infected, but the sour porter character really works for me.

mabel (8321) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 9, 2008
[1442-20080531] Bottle. Boozy roast malt aroma has lots of wood. Dark brown red body with a quick foamy light tan head. Flavour has a little watery banana. Medium body. Interesting.
(5T @ Mondial; Montreal, QC)

blipp (7896) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 7, 2011
Draft. Pours near black with a beige head. Sweet and roasty malty aroma with some caramel. The flavor has roasted malts, dark fruits, toast, and a light malty sweetness. Well balanced. Nice.

czar (7361) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 5, 2010
Sweet dark fruits, a bit too sweet to my taste. Medium to heavy body. Bottle kept on foaming forever. Anyhow, microcarbonation, toffee, a bunch of flavours. Ho.st rocks.

jredmond (7228) - New York, New York, USA - MAR 31, 2011
Draft at Ginger Man NYC with Streets, Andrew and Brendan. Pours a dark brown body with thin lacing. Aroma is slightly smoky. Mouthfeel is smooth with sweet notes of oak. Great Porter

blankboy (7110) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 22, 2009
Bottle (500ml) at Volo, shared with garthicus & GregClow. Pours a very dark orange-brown with an average size semi-lasting foamy tan head. Slightly subtle aroma of roasted malt, a hint of sourness (or metal), some coffee and chocolate. Flavour of roasted malt with notes of chocolate, dark fruit and the aforementioned metal/sourness. Dry, roasty finish. Medium bodied. Pretty good, not great.

Radek Kliber (7056) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - JUN 8, 2007
On tap at Mondial.
Dark brown falling into ebony. Smallish creamy head.3+
Roasty, even with coco accents. Lightly vinous. Roasty, hint of smoke.
Full bodied .Rich potent pit tar like smoky charcter.It is quiet different in character to let say Polish Baltics. I feel that the emphasis is placed in complexity of its brew than straight forward solid yet unsophisticated quality roast. Here roasted qualities are secondary. Over all quiet pleasant potent brew. Long lasting gently bitter finish.

swoopjones (7021) - Buffalo, New York, USA - APR 5, 2008
On tap @ Vices et Versa, Montreal. Pors a nice deep dark brown. Bitter & slight sourness & tartness. Medium mouthfeel, light chocolate flavor. Prefer both the victory & smuttynose

solidfunk (7003) - 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.
