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.

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.

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.

blankboy (6781) - 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.

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.
